The 5 Best Free Hotel Amenities
April 15, 2016 |
For everything from business trips to family reunions, the hotel is the base of operations. But when is the last time a hotel’s amenities actually surprised you? Just to be clear, I mean in a good way: This past weekend I stayed in a hotel, and to my surprise, somebody had left one half of a Chipotle burrito in the mini fridge. That’s not the kind of surprise I mean.
That being said, there are numerous international hotels that go above and beyond when it comes to hotel amenities. Because who doesn’t like being treated like the king or queen that they are? From free running shoe rentals to monogrammed robes, these hotels have the royal treatment down.
If you’re looking for inspiration to pamper your clients, look no further than these luxurious amenities.
1) The Quin, New York City
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve forgotten my moisturizer at home. This hotel ensures all forgotten beauty products are taken care of, and they’re probably more luxurious brands than the original was anyways.
2) The Westin Peachtree Plaza, Atlanta
When I’m traveling for business, I almost always forget my workout gear. Perhaps, it’s my excuse to avoid any physical fitness, but I tend to feel a sense of remorse every time I walk past my hotel’s complimentary fitness center. (It’s not like you can drink the cucumber water without actually earning it!) This hotel gives guests New Balance workout gear to rent for free. And the items are delivered right to your door, so you don’t have to waste any energy prior to your workout.
3) Conrad Hotel, Chicago
The problem with hotels is, if you’re a finicky sleeper (like myself), it can be difficult to fall asleep away from your bed at home. This hotel aims to rectify this problem with its complimentary sleep menu. It features scented pillows in all sorts of shapes and sizes (perhaps even a Justin Bieber cuddle pillow), sleep masks, earplugs and an assortment of books to read.
4) Cheval Blanc Randheli, Maldives
I speak from experience on this one, since I always forget to pack a beach bag when I visit Miami. Trust me, everyone judges you when you pull a beach towel out of a an evening clutch bag. This hotel provides its patrons with complimentary floral canvas totes for women and heavy canvas drawstring knapsacks for the fellas.
5) Hotel Ritz, Madrid
This hotel lives up to its ritzy name, providing guests with complimentary personalized robes, featuring the guests’ initials. Even better, they’re already waiting in the hotel upon arrival, so you can immediately start enjoying your pajama party.
