At Nobu Hotel, An Amenity For Just About Everything

April 25, 2013 at 1:33 PM | by | ()

Yesterday, we documented our night in a room at Nobu's first ever hotel. As mentioned there, part of the advertised escapism was achieved through amenity madness and elevated service inside the boutique hotel (within a hotel). Today, we return to provide more details on said amenities and service.

Natura Bissé of Barcelona is the provider of a line of products exclusive to Nobu Hotel and guest rooms are loaded with them. Everywhere we turned there was something new to rub, wash, mist or smell. Enough toiletries, in fact, to kickstart a year of living free if hotel theft bathroom souvenirs are your thang. For stays longer than a night or two, an extra suitcase might be needed just for take-home toiletries.

The Suite In Bellagio Where Gucci Is The Complimentary Amenity

Where: 3600 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
February 19, 2013 at 8:54 PM | by | ()

VegasChatter loves it some hotel toiletries. In fact, we've gone a whole year without needing to purchase soap, shampoo, or conditioner thanks to our 'free' hotel swag. But, there's toiletries that make you smell like an old lady and then there are amenities that make you smell like a million bucks. Or, at least like three digits.

In Bellagio's Chairman Suite, a sprawling two bedroom penthouse atop the resort's Spa Tower, guests don't just receive the normal personal grooming items we've all come to expect. No, when you're paying four figures (and upwards) a night for a stay, you can spritz yourself in all the Gucci you want. And, take it home with you, too.

We Went a Whole Year Using Toiletries Nabbed from Vegas Hotels

February 1, 2013 at 5:05 PM | by | ()

Ever wondered why our contributor always smells so good? Well, here's his secret.

There was a challenge put forth to me at the beginning of 2012 to use hotel toiletries including lotion, shower gel and shampoo for the entire year. Challenge accepted and, because I spent way too many nights in hotels last year, challenge completed and challenge won!

My favorite hotel toiletries include everything from Cosmopolitan to the Qua Spa lotion from Caesars Palace. Supposedly, Caesars Palace only uses the Qua Spa toiletries in the Octavius and Augustus tower, where I got mine. Otherwise, Caesars Entertainment uses Gilchrist and Soames toiletries at most of their properties across the country.

Cheapskates Beware: Harrah's Wants Your Soap For Worthy Purposes

October 28, 2010 at 12:51 AM | by | ()

None of this for us anymore if we want to keep our principles. Damn you, Harrah's

We make no bones about the fact that we are cheap bargain hunters here at VegasChatter, and as part of our cheapness bargain hunterdom, we often (ok always) do things like take home hotel toiletries to get the absolute maximum value out of our hotel stay. When we’re feeling ultra hard up, or if they’re especially nice toiletries, we’ll even occasionally take home the half-used soap too. Yes, it’s skuzzy of us, but as we always tell ourselves, otherwise it’d just be going to waste, wouldn’t it?

Err, thanks Harrah’s for ruining our soap harvest. According to Pulse of Vegas, it has just donated $100k to build a soap recycling facility in Vegas:

The center will collect and sanitize soap, shampoos, conditioners and lotions from Vegas hotel-casinos and distribute the products to struggling families throughout the U.S. and more than 40 countries around the world.
