Pizza Phone (hotel phone button to order pizza)

"My hotel phone has a button just for pizza” was a post on reddit in August 2013; the hotel was Country Inns & Suites (Niagara Falls, Ontario). The Huffington Post headline declared on August 19, 2013:

“Pizza Phone: Niagara Falls Hotel Has Best Amenity Ever.”

Many hotels have a button for room service, but the “pizza” button the phone is specifically for pizza. “Pizza Phone: The button every phone should have” was on Twitter on August 19, 2013.

This. Is. Genius! Redditor Ratapus found that the Country Inn & Suites in Niagara Falls has a dedicated button to call for pizza. All phones need this!

Redditor Ratapus made an incredible discovery this week: the Country Inn & Suites in Niagara Falls, ON, has some pretty special phones. Pizza phones. Phones with pizza buttons. Pizza. Phones. Why doesn’t everyone do this?

As noted in the Reddit comments, this usually means that the hotel has cut a deal with a nearby pizza place, so this button probably just calls the closest Pizza Hut, Domino’s, etc. But that doesn’t diminish the sheer beauty of a phone that dials out for pizza with one touch.
