I’ve spent thousands of nights in hotels and know what to expect when it comes to hotel toiletries. You’ll find the usual shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and body wash in every hotel. Some hotels like the W include extras like sewing kits, toothbrushes, and shoe shine kits.

Asprey Ritz Carlton

I love the cloth laundry bags from the Luxury Collection and know that a stay at a Ritz-Carlton will feature Asprey Purple Water (I like it but not as much as when the St. Regis used Laboratoire Remède brand toiletries). Sometimes there are little surprises like the Balmain toiletries found in the suites at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay (my review here).

My point is, it’s not often I’m surprised by the toiletries found in a hotel bathroom. Until this morning.

Crockfords Las Vegas Vanity 1

I’m staying in Las Vegas this weekend and spent last night at Crockfords Las Vegas, LXR Hotels & Resorts (I’ll have a full review up in the next few days). When I was getting ready this morning, I noticed the boxed Manicure Kit next to one of the vanities in the master bathroom. I figured it had a nail file, a cuticle pusher, and some cotton balls. I was wrong.

Crockfords Manicure Set

Inside, there was a nail clipper, tweezers, and a nail file. Even better, there was another kit on the other vanity in the master bathroom. These are definitely coming home. What a thoughtful amenity. (Note: these were each shrink-wrapped, but I opened them for the photo.)

Anthony’s Take: Sometimes, it’s the little things. I was not expecting such a nice find in the bathroom this morning. Crockfords, overall, has been lovely. I’ll share my full thoughts and review in the next few days. Have you ever been surprised by an amenity or toiletry found in your hotel room?

I’ve had the ambassador team set up some lovely and unexpected food / wine / gifts for me a couple times. I’m curious if I’ll still have this status at the end of March.
