While we’re on the subject of the simple amenities being the best, check out this offering we picked up at Clontarf Castle in Dublin the other week.

Yes, it’s an umbrella. No, it’s not your standard hotel umbrella. Because although it’s large, and although it’s sturdy, it is completely unmarked. No funny colors. No embarrassing logo. Nothing that says “I’m a tourist, please mug me.”

It's Raining Hotel Umbrellas

The iconic red umbrella from the Hotel Plaza Athénée in Paris. As seen toted by Miss Carrie Bradshaw in our gallery.

The sun may be shining now, but NYC—like many other parts of the country—has been whipped by rainstorms recently. This weekend we had to retire our lovely pink and green umbrella from the Beverly Hills Hotel to the graveyard of broken brollies littering the streets of Manhattan.

We were so sad about the loss that we decided to create a commemorative gallery of our favorite Hotel Umbrellas.

Got your own favorite? Whether you 'borrowed' it from a recent hotel stay, or purchased it from a hotel store, we welcome your comments and photo submissions. Send us your snaps and we'll add 'em to our gallery ...
