Free shampoo? Boring. Bathrobes? Yawn. Travelers have come to expect these once-special hotel amenities, whether we’re plopping our heads on the pillows of hip hostels or posh penthouses.
And it seems hotels are taking note, seeing our expectations and raising us some carefully selected and sometimes off-the-wall amenities that not only stoke our vanity, but also create experiences to remember long after we’ve checked out. From in-room Glamour Bars to use of a convertible Porsche, these hotels are bringing their A-game when it comes to amenities and making sure we look and feel fabulous day and night.
