Resorts World Las Vegas has announced a partnership with Grubhub for a new mobile order service. Guests of the forthcoming Resorts World Las Vegas property will be able to use the service to get food, drinks, and retail items for delivery and pickup during their stay.
Dubbed On The Fly at Resorts World Powered by Grubhub, the service lets guests order from all of the resort’s onsite food and beverage locations as well as certain retail stores. Items can be scheduled for pickup or delivered to the guest’s hotel room or the resort’s pool complex.
To use the service, Resorts World guests either access the Grubhub app or scan one of the many QR codes that will be located throughout the property. Users will also get the option to charge the purchase to their room, just as they would with a traditional room service order, or use their credit card. For poolside deliveries, guests access their order at a QR-code activated restaurant locker on the pool deck.
The 88-acre Resorts World Las Vegas property will include three Hilton hotel brands in addition to the usual trappings of a Las Vegas property — casino, stores, restaurants, etc. The whole thing is slated to open this week, on June 24.
It also marks the first time Grubhub’s service has been available at a hotel/casino property. The sheer size of Resorts World Las Vegas — three hotels and 40 food/bev outlets in an 88-acre property — gives Grubhub automatic access to a potentially huge customer base in Sin City.
Last week, Netherlands-based Just Eat Takeaway.com said it had completed its acquisition of Grubhub, a $7.3 million all-stock deal that was originally announced one year ago. Currently, Grubhub’s strongest markets are New York City, Boston, Chicago, and Philadelphia.
