Usually when staying in hotels, we find ourselves in need of dollars bills for tipping the staff. But we guess some people need bricks of gold instead.

We first heard about Gold to Go last year over at Jaunted when we learned that these special ATM machines were dispensing bricks of gold at the Frankfurt Airport in Germany. One more time: bricks of gold!

Now the silly clever ATMs can also be found inside the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. Yup, while we would settle for a simple cash ATM at our hotel, the Emirates has to top the rest with a gold brick ATM machine.

The AP reports:

The ATM-style kiosk in the Emirates Palace monitors the daily gold price and offers small bars up to 10 grams or coins with customized designs.

We're presuming the ATM machine can be found in the hotel's business center but if you hear any different, let us know. And send us a brick or two while you're at it.
