The Soap Rocks At La Posada De Santa Fe
December 27, 2011 at 3:26 PM
We've seen plenty of weird and wonderful hotel soaps in our time, but nothing quite as cool as this: the rock soap that greeted us as we checked into La Posada De Santa Fe Resort last night.
There was a normal, pebble-shaped soap in the soap dish - so far, so normal - but then on the shelf by the basin we spied this lump of rock. Was it a pumice stone to grate your feet? An ornament? A random piece of rock? No, it was indeed a bar of soap shaped like a rock.
Why? Because La Posada is owned by Rock Resorts, and Rock Resorts clearly know a good piece of guerilla marketing when they see it. "Rock Resorts" is cut into the soap bar, and since we're never going to use it - we'll be keeping it on our bathroom shelf in perpetuity - we'll always remember La Posada.
Now if only they could pay as much attention to their showers instead of making do with hard-to-wash-hair-in-dribblers, that really would have been a great stay.
