Off-the-Wall Minibar Amenities
Real Simple magazine recently released a travel issue, which turned out to be mostly pages and pages of lists. Some of these lists were routine, but we liked this one: "Off-the-wall Minibar Amenities." Kudos to these hotels for creativity.
Harmonica (Hotel Allegro, Chicago)
Moon Pies (Westin Buckhead, Atlanta)
Licorice whips (the Standard, Los Angeles)
Gourmet dog biscuits (the Loews, Denver)
Rubber ducks (Triton, San Francisco)
Oxygen dispenser (Westin, New York City)
In the photo above, we're not sure what some of those items are in the minibar basket at the Hotel Palomar in D.C., but there may be a Pez dispenser and a CD in there. But hey, we're just happy to see some items that aren't just the usual fat globs from Hershey's or Frito-Lay. If you're going to make us pay a mark-up of 600 percent or more, at least make it something interesting!
