Room service is going Jurassic.

It’s being discontinued at the city’s largest hotel, the New York Hilton Midtown in August, taking the jobs of 55 workers with it.

hilton The 2,000-room Hilton plans to replace it with a cafeteria-style, grab-and-go restaurant.

Experts say this will become the industry norm soon enough, because room service is too expensive and it takes too long to have the food delivered.
