New Carry-on Rules And Hotels.

Tue Aug 29, 2006 11:50 am

I noticed on the Fairfield by Marriott page that they have a notice that reads "In response to recent in-flight carry-on restrictions, Marriott is providing complimentary personal amenities. Please inquire at the front desk upon your arrival." Are other chains doing this? It is a great idea, a little thing to make customers enjoy their stay.

Most hotels do give out free tolietries anyway.

There was a segment on NBC's Today about this very subject a week ago or so. Its not just hotels, even car rental companies are jumping on the bandwagon.

I don't know what Red Roof you stayed at, but all the ones I've been to have toiletries. It seems to me that the "big" chains provide that kind of stuff...You get to smaller hotels, and it can get tough to find comforts like that.

Guess I had a bad housekeeper. The Red Roof I usually stay at is a nice hotel, the last few times I've stayed there I didn't get shampoo, just soap. Guess I was unlucky, I have a stay scheduled in about 2 weeks, I'll see if they have shampoo then.

They should have shampoo in the room. You should be able to get a toothbrush, a packet of toothpaste, and razor form the front desk.
When in doubt, one B pump off

Not Travel Inn in the UK. I stayed in one near Cambridge a few years ago and when I asked at the front desk I was told they didn't have any, but I could walk or take a cab to the Shell station down the road and buy some!
