Hyatt has released a new video that actively encourages you to steal their new in-room toiletries!

(Deleted as now removed from YouTube)

Frankly, I have always stolen hotel toiletries!  There was a time, pre kids when I could travel more, when I could literally go years without having to buy shower gel!

Although, to be honest, even I was overwhelmed at Christmas when – at one stage – due to over-zealous replenishment we had 18 75ml bottles of various stuff scattered around our room at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray in Dubai ….

At the top end, you know you are somewhere really smart if they have Hermes or Aqua di Parma.  There is a move, these days, to own-branded products – perhaps unfortunately – even at top-end establishments.  I still have a h-u-g-e bar of Bulgari soap that I took from the InterContinental in Hong Kong about 7 years ago …..

    Forget the toiletries … I’m all about stealing the fancy Teabags …

  • Paul says:

    I gave doing it. The only exception is Sofitel and only cause they use Hermes

    I love the Bulgari toiletries at Grosvenor House in Dubai, and with replenishment during evening turn-down service as well as the morning service you end up with enough to tip the airport scales!

    I’ve often thought, when staying somewhere like Shoreditch House where they offer the full-size bottles of Cowshed, which you’re clearly told not to take unless you want to pay for them, of taking Muji bottles and filling them with the products – but perhaps that’s taking it too far! 😉

    Hotel toiletries add that special touch to my guest’s stay in my home. My friends get to enjoy the luxury of the ‘smell’ without the stay in the wonderful hotels I’ve visited worldwide. This year I’ve a plethora. Hyatt products are delightful.

  • toiletries-pincher says:

    It’s not really stealing if you take the ones in your room – they are there to be used, and paid for in the room rate. If you leave them behind half empty, they only get thrown out.

    Now of course if you find the storage cupboard and take a box, or grab a stash from the maids trolley when the maid isn’t looking…..
