Five playful hotel room touches we actually like

by admin on September 8, 2009

As much as we enjoy pointing out funny photo fakeouts and breaking down bundles that turn out to be awesome deals (and sometimes not-so-awesome deals), we like to bring it all back to the basics every now and again to kick it with some good ol’ hotel stuff that we actually like. And towel swans and fresh fruit are great and all, but we want to take you into the short work week slowly with some memorable and creative hotel room touches (that don’t qualify as creepy hotel art) that we’re totally down for…because most of it is stuff we can play with.

The record player at the Ace is brilliant! Never seen this anywhere else. Like to adapt this in our themesuites at our hotel in Berlin / Germany.
