What You Can (and Can't) Take from a Hotel Room

Bathroom amenities from the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans

The New York Times' Ethicist column ran an interesting little snippet recently about whether or not it's ethical to stockpile hotel shampoos and conditioners during a stay so you'll have a bounty to bring home. And if you've ever called housekeeping for more body wash when there was still plenty of the sweet smelling stuff left in the bottle, it's worth reading and perhaps even weighing in on the subject. I've certainly weighed in with my thoughts on that topic over the years. And if you're still unclear, perhaps this video I put together can help lessen the confusion when it comes to what should stay in your hotel room and what can go home with you. And, while we're on the topic, which bath product brands were you introduced to at a hotel and have since come to love? For me, it's got to be Hermes' orange verte soaps and anything by H2O.
