In case you haven’t heard, we have exciting news to share. The Epicurean Hotel has partnered with Uber, who is evolving the way the world moves by seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through their app. The nifty thing we can offer our guests is that our Epicurean Hosts can quickly summon an Uber driver on their iPads, and the “approved” charges will then be automatically applied to the guest’s room.

Not only that, but now your charges will be on your guest room folio, and if you’re traveling on business, this will make that expense report so much easier! Read More
