Who doesn’t love a nice relaxing day in a sweet suite room? A nice trip when complemented with a sweet, decked-up hotel (with necessary amenities, of course) is a match made in heaven – and an experience you would like to take back home. This usually starts by picking up all the complementary things that the hotel has to offer you.
But sometimes, people overstay their welcome and overstep their boundaries by popping in things that are not necessarily complementary. We bring to you a directory of all the things that you can take home with you from a hotel room.
Shampoo – Normally, small travel bottles of shampoos are provided in the bathroom kit in most of the hotels which you can pop in your suitcase and take it home with you. If you’re not choosy about the brand of shampoo, you can pile up on these assets and you can save a penny or two.
Conditioners – Where there is will there is a way. Similarly, where there is shampoo, there are conditioners. So, pop both of these in your bag on your way out.
Toothpaste – If you’re not the type of person who wants cooling gel or rocket fuel in your toothpaste, you will be satisfied with the toothpaste included in the bathroom kit provided in most of the hotels.
Razors and Shaving Cream – Personal grooming can be quite a task and can be heavy on pocket too. Do yourself a favour and toss those complimentary razors in your bag to save some bucks
Moisturiser and Sunscreen – Depending on the weather that you’re travelling, your skin will give you a tough time during the trip. So it’s better to keep your friends close and moisturiser closer. (Get it?)
Notepad and Pen – Don’t you hate it when you need to note down something during a trip and can’t seem to find a pen and paper? Well, guess what. Some high-end Hotels provide you with a complimentary notepad and pen for productivity purposes.
Magazines – On your Lucky day, opening a magazine outside your suite door may reward you with event tickets. But on normal days, it’s free nonetheless and it gets you up to date with the local gossip and area or interests.
Coffee, Tea and Sugar – It may be a drag to make yourself a cuppa tea or maybe an espresso, but depending on where you are, local places may not provide a good selection of drinks. So, you can DIY your way into it and maybe post it on Instagram with a cool hashtag. So, why not pop it into your bag?
Champagne – Some High-end hotels greet guests with a bottle of complimentary champagne ready in their suite(We all know that’s just another word for FREE). So, if you haven’t popped the cork, better toss it in the Bag.
Garbage Liner Bags – You might ask what purpose garbage liner bags could possibly serve on a trip? For someone travelling with a pet, it could come in handy as a doody bag. So, fold up and pack it.
Because you’ve made it this far here are the things you should avoid Tossing in. (Sir, It’s not on the house)
Bathrobes – It may come with the (complimentary) Washroom kit but you should not Fold and pack bathrobes as they are charged insanely high prices and is strictly off-limits to take it with you.
Towels – It may be tempting but Towels are a big NO-NO when it comes to this list as it’s not complimentary and some people are arrested so let’s count on making your name on the boarding desk and not on 911.
Hair-dryers – It may fit in your bag but it’s strictly off-limits and it can drain your wallet if the front desk knows it.
Bed Sheets – To sleep on a designed bed sheet may bring you the best sleep but it’s better to live it at the hotel because it’s not complimentary so don’t pack it home with you.
Blankets – Thick and heavy blankets in hotel rooms may be great but they are not for sale so keep it out of your bag till the time being.
