When you’re traveling, it’s easy to forget things — a camera, workout clothes, even something as simple as a book — but hotel hospitality is a wonderful thing. Over the past few years hotels have been stepping up their game to accommodate the needs of guests and frequent travelers. The idea is to make you want to keep coming back to the same hotel or at least use the same hotel chain on other trips in the future.
For that reason (and to make your stay as seamless and enjoyable as possible, of course) hotels will provide luxury, name-brand products for their shampoos, conditioners, and lotions. You’ll usually get adapters, chargers, and Wi-Fi access for free as well, along with room robes and slippers for ultimate relaxation.
However, lately hotels have been offering fun perks to keep their guests entertained. For instance, Marriott Hotels in 17 places throughout Latin America and the Caribbean offer GoPro rentals for you to take with you on your adventures and later share your experience with the hotel. Other hotels, like the Even Hotels of New York, are also going above and beyond to accommodate people’s wellness needs — since many travelers now enjoy continuing their fitness activities while vacationing but may sometimes forget their workout gear or yoga mats.
