It was just a year ago that Hilton Hotels rolled out the red carpet for Chinese travelers with thier Hilton Huanying program. Now today, the brand is celebrating, um, celebrating its Chinese guests with a special limited-edition pair of of "Water Dragon" slippers designed by fashion designer Vivienne Tam.
The slippers are available only for one month exclusively for guests of the Hilton Huanying program which is in place at 70 participating hotels in 23 countries.
But if you aren't heading to any of these places any time soon, don't fret. The slippers will be for sale for $28 on www.hiltontohome.com while supplies last.
Here's a description of the slipper:
The stylish slippers feature a mirrored design of two intricate inward-facing blue dragons swimming in a turquoise "sea" - a common symbol of optimism, harmony and fulfillment in Chinese culture. Featuring rich shades of blue inspired by the Hilton Hotels & Resorts signature color, the slippers celebrate the Year of the Dragon and are available in a men's and a women's size and made of soft terry cloth, plush cushioning at the toe and a textured sole.
We've been known to swipe a pair hotel slippers (or two) during our stay but these are so cute, we'd definitely cough up $28 for them. Keep reading for how to get your own pair!

It's been a gradual process getting to know all the little quirks and idiosyncrasies of Manhattan's many, many, many hotels. But now that we've seen a bit of what we like and don't like, here's a snapshot from one room we recently stayed in at The Nolitan, the glass-wrapped boutique hotel that opened in Soho last July.
Ours was a Cityscape room, a category that's found only on the top two floors of the hotel. And needless to say, the views were awesome.
But another aspect that made us close our eyes and go 'Aah' was the variety of unusual surfaces: a lot of thought has been put into the textures of these rooms. Like the walls, for instance, which on one side of the room are covered in glossy black Venetian plaster (above). To the touch, it's smooth and slippery, and from a distance, it manages to reflect everything in the room with a slight ripple, almost like water.
Thanks to Aileen for dropping this excellent snapshot (and many others) into the HotelChatter Flickr Pool. Now we know that when we check into the Hong Kong Disneyland's Hollywood Hotel, the in-room slippers are on the house! Got your own hotel snapshots you wanna share? Drop 'em in the pool!
