I thought use takeout / delivered.

any reviews for this site.

https://www.grubhub.com/ ?

"Grubhub helps you find and order food from wherever you are. How it works: you type in an address, we tell you the restaurants that deliver to that locale as well as showing you droves of pickup restaurants near you. Want to be more specific? Search by cuisine, restaurant name or menu item. We'll filter your results accordingly. When you find what you're looking for, you can place your order online or by phone, free of charge. Oh, and we also give you access to reviews, coupons, special deals and a 24/7 customer care team that tracks each order and makes sure you get exactly what you want."
I've used Grubhub a bunch. It's good in a pinch, but I honestly can't say I've ever had them take less than an hour to deliver anything. But at weird hours and/or in a bad neighborhood they are a good option.

Actually just the other day in CVG I discovered www.orderup.com/ Same general thing, but you can track your driver on a map just like Uber.

Yelp delivery didn't cover you? When I was in Chicago a couple months ago I got introduced to that wonderfulness.

For the hideous smokers out there: 9 times out of 10, a Courtyard is going to have a balcony room available. Dealing with the front desk is hit or miss (mostly miss). Ask for a manager. Go full "I'm Captain Dudley McImportantguy and I'm a Platinum Member, cough cough wheeze. I REQUIRE a balcony room, sir. *cough* *hack* REQUIRE, sir!" I'm like 99/100 on that strategy.

Try the vent in the bathroom? Sucks like a Hoover. Nobody ever went to hell for smoking in the stairwell either. Just sayin.

Use one of these instead of the hotel coffee maker.

I carry plastic bags for remote condoms.

There are a number of noise makers on the internet for sleep. I use a thunderstorm app on my firestick to sleep to from Amazon. Have a bunch on my iPad as well.

Collapsing bowls that are microwaveable. You can use that to cook food from the local grocery store instead of eating out all the time.

And download the Terrarium TV app which is castable. It literally has everything.

DIRECTV now is a great new program. I pay $30 a month for 100 channels. Get all the latest and greatest. Discovery, Syfy, Cartoon Network, Fox News, HBO, etc. runs off my fire stick or iPad so I can take the walking dead with me on the road.

How well is it working? The reviews a few months ago were terrible.
