Through the Years: The Berkeley's Luggage Tags
We're having one of those days where, utterly sick of all the hotel hype and hotel delays going on in the hotel world, we've decided to seek out something more stable. And we're doing it by admiring the luggage tags of The Berkeley Hotel in London.
The hotel sent us some paper versions of the luggage tags designs that have been circulated since 1934 (the hotel actually opened long before that at the turn of the 19th century.) Each tag includes the hotel's logo design from a particular era, which was not only used on the luggage tags but throughout the hotel. On the backside of the tag, the year of the design is listed.
We're having a tough time deciding which one is our fave. The newest one from 2007 is too simple but the 1972 tag is too Beverly Hills Hotel. Right now, we think the design from 1970 might be winning out.
Hoping to snag a real leather Berkeley luggage tag from the hotel?
Rates at The Berkeley for the rest of August are going for 225 pounds a night. The hotel also offers a special Sunday night rate for 199 pounds. You can peruse more of their special offers here. And remember, the WiFi is freeeeee!
