Earlier this year, I was pleased to see dispensers in one hotel instead of bottles. That must have been a backwards non-optimized hotel.

Well they can't reuse them and they are branded so I always figured they wanted me to take them home if I liked them. Some of the are REALLY nice.

I've seen the dispensers in several places.  Personally I don't like them.  No guarantees on what product is really in there and that it hasn't been screwed with.

Some hotels have actually had mini bottles of Paul Mitchell products.  That impressed me.

Oh, sure, shampoo is fine, but they get pretty snippy when you slide a mattress into the elevator.

Low end hotels have price lists. "We're happy to sell you our towels, etc. Here are the prices... For your convenience, you can just take them from the room when you leave and we'll add them to your bill." I wonder if any of them list mattresses among the purchasable items.

When I traveled a lot I always brought my own shampoo, conditioner and body wash, just because in one trip I might be in a dozen hotels/motels, some of them not so nice, and I wanted to know what I was using on my hair and skin from day to day. I always took the little bottles and donated them to a shelter when I got home. My karma is still in the red, I think.

i was at a place, and i thought, man, these robes are awesome, i'm taking them... then i noticed, each one would cost $300.

When the heck was there ever a time when hotels didn't want you to take the little disposable shampoo/lotion bottles?

It's the towels, bedding, furniture, etc. they don't want removed.

This.

Health code in most US jurisdictions generally prohibits reusing of single/limited-use toiletries across multiple rentals of the same room.  If you don't take those little bottles they're legally supposed to get thrown out by the maid anyway.

Notice I say legally.  I'm sure quite a few places cut corners and don't so long as they're still sealed and look okay.

Whether being reminded of home is a good thing or not may depend on whether it's a business trip or a vacation.

"If you take it, then you must have liked it,"

No.

I started taking them, well at least stashing them in my suitcase, after several occurances at different hotels where housekeeping failed to replace an empty one.  If I find that they haven't provided a new tiny shampoo bottle, no problem, I've got at least 2 or 3 in my suitcase from various hotels.

When you have a baby, they tell you to take every consumable in the room, because they have to throw them out if you don't.

This is why I carry my Roku. While some hotels nixed the HDMI access on their TVs, most gave up on that ages ago and have a port available for external devices. I have my TV shows on a USB drive plugged into the Roku and watch my regular bedtime shows in the hotel, just like I do at home. It makes for a quick relaxation.

Now, if a hotel has a really nice ginger or lemon verbena soap, I'm asking for extras.

When I was a kid, my grandparents had a Holiday Inn hotel towel.  At first, I thought that meant you were supposed to take the towels.  A few years later, I realized  my grandparents stole a hotel towel.

Bedding, from comfortable mattresses to soft sheets, is another evolving aspect of room amenities.

"It's always being looked at and we're always looking for ways to make it better-not just for comfort but for housekeeping too," says Marriott's Mitchell.


This bit brings up a question I've had for a while.  Fitted bottom sheets have been standard for longer than I've been alive.  But why aren't there top sheets and blankets that have a pouch to slide over the end of the mattress?  Seems like that would save a lot of bed-making time.  Slip it over, pull it snug, job's done.  I know mattresses come in many thicknesses but it doesn't have to be perfectly tight.  It just needs to hold the bedding in place through the night.

It's farking shampoo, people. If your delicate head can't take rebranded Suave for a couple of days, you have bigger problems and probably shouldn't leave your bubble home.

And dispensers are the way to go. The amount of waste generated from those little bars of soap and bottles of shampoo, conditioner and lotion is immense; there's more packaging than there is product. Anyone who prefers these has absolutely no business lecturing anyone else about bottled water, keeping a lawn or "rolling coal" (OK, maybe that one is fair game... that's just stupid).

I have to say, I've never seen that at a low-end hotel.

Mid-range and higher, sure. (And by "mid-range and higher, I'm talking a rack rate of US$250-500 per night for a standard room, US$500-1,000 per night for a suite.) But at what most people would consider "low end", nope.

I stay at Motel 6 pretty much exclusively when I need to rent a room. Of course, the only time I rent rooms is at the end of multi-day camping and hiking excursions. By then even the cheapest smoking room at the 6 is like a presidential suite (almost). The soaps are individually wrapped and sealed, no one's re-using those things.  I usually grab a few and toss them into my hiking pack. I also take the ashtrays with me, they make great after-dinner mint dishes for the formal dining room table.

2014-08-06 07:15:12 PM  
I just stopped using shampoo, conditioner, and soap (on the body).  Not for travelling, although it does make it a bit easier.

CSB: There's a motel I used to stay at which was called "Albany Rosedale" (Rosedale being the name of the street and Albany the suburb), but all of the little bottles were labelled "Albany Rostel".  I can only assume it was because the Korean immigrants who ran it had ordered them by phone...  I ended up taking a few of them as novelties for the receptionists.

I have to be careful. I have allergies. My husband, on the other hand, never met a hotel freebee that he didn't like. Opening my hall closet can be dangerous. I sometimes think that I will be found dead under a thousand little shampoo, conditioner and soap packs.
If you want to get towels you go to the pool. Better hotels usually have towels in the pool area. Not that I would ever think of doing that.....

Because why would you pay for that when the next thing that happens is it gets untucked? Do you spend a lot of time making hospital corners when you are at home? Do you enjoy feeling like your feet are strapped to the bed? I sure as fark don't and if I was ever in a room, anywhere where I couldn't poke my feet out from under the covers I am going to pull that thing off, take a shiat on it then go right to the front desk and make a scene about their housekeeping practices until they give me a normal sheet

What is the deal with four or five mega-hotels in the middle of NOWHERE at a freeway interchange outside of Cornhole, Illinois.

Who is staying there?  What are they doing?

I just got back from a wedding and stayed at one of said hotels.  The number of people downstairs for breakfast every morning was nowhere near enough for the number of rooms in this six-story hotel.

Why would you build the fourth hotel at the same site when the others never break 30% occupancy?

I totally don't get it.

Maybe hotels only plan to run at 30% occupancy at a given time?
 
2014-08-06 07:47:55 PM  
Why would I take that crap home?  It just takes up space and never gets used.  Now the pool towels....

Went with a friend on a business trip two weeks ago.  Stayed at a La Quinta.  Her company has a contract with them and she uses them  for most of her business travel.  Anyway, we get there to check in and they give her a gift bag for being a "frequent guest" .  An 8oz bottle of water and a cookie.  Gee thanks!

Odd, I've never had trouble washing sheets.  I guess I'm not 'tarded and figured out how to set the load to "small" and wash the fitted sheet by itself.  And that was with old top-loading washers.  My front loader handles the water level automagically.

And dispensers are the way to go. The amount of waste generated from those little bars of soap and bottles of shampoo, conditioner and lotion is immense; there's more packaging than there is product. Anyone who prefers these has absolutely no business lecturing anyone else about bottled water, keeping a lawn or "rolling coal" (OK, maybe that one is fair game... that's just stupid).

1) What part of "I'm lazy" is confusing?
2) You don't  have to make them tight.  They can be made with as much room as you want for your feet.

Uhm, yeah, no.  Most hotels buy a metric butt load of universal remotes and only have to memorize the one code for their standardized TV set.  Every hotel has a filing cabinet drawer full of nothing but boxed/clamshelled brand new universal remote controls.  There is another drawer full of brand new batteries.  There will be a post-it with the standard TV code nearby.  That's why people steal them, they are universal remotes and can be easily reprogrammed at a later date.

1, 2 and 4oz 'Cosmoval' bottles..  Yep, iff'n you have one, is a reasonable chance I had it in my hands at one point in the process..

May I also say..these small bottles are a *TOTAL* PITA to work with..and no-one likes dealing with them..  We handle dozens of accounts and products and these bottles are pretty much the most hated..

That's where I get all my towels.

bungle_jr: my LEAST favorite of the 4 stories was quentin's...my favorite was rodriguez's...the other 2 were good. overall, one of my favorite not-super-commonly-known movies!


Nah, the second segment with the guy faking the heart attack was the terrible one. The witches were not that good, either, but at least there were boobies. Rodriguez' segment was by far, the very best. And Tarantino's segment was only great because of the way that Tim Roth played it. The rest of them were terrible, but when they finally get down to setting up the bet, the way that Roth plays the bellboy was fantastic.

Honestly the Tarantino bet segment is the only one I remember from that movie.
