Just a quick note today from the Hyatt Union Square in New York City. It’s a hotel I definitely recommend for more of a neighborhood feel and a “real New York” experience. Bonus points awarded as it’s right around the corner from the Strand Bookstore.
Anyway, one of the perks of this particular hotel is the C.O. Bigelow toiletries, pictured above. As we have late checkout being Diamond members and Deal Girl goes a little nuts with the shower gel, I asked housekeeping for another set to use later.
Five minutes later showed up one of their little black bags with the following:
Not what I was expecting! The five ounce bottles, 2.5x the regular size toiletries, were a major treat, especially considering C.O. Bigelow doesn’t even sell the lavender peppermint scent used here online, except for the little soaps. Using prices on the website, I estimate that to be about $20 worth of little luxury. Thanks, Hyatt!
Has housekeeping ever shown up with oversized goodies for you? Please share!
