Bringing the hotel home with you

When you spend enough time in hotels, they start to become more of your home than your actual home does. For me it was first the Embassy Suites in Minneapolis, then Georgetown Suites in Washington, DC and then the W City Center in Chicago. It was at the W in Chicago that I realized I’d really rather have the same bedding all the time rather than something different at home and on the road. Fortunately the W Hotels will sell you anything you want, so getting a set of pillows was a piece of cake, and I slept much better because of it. Sadly, the W Hotels store is ridiculously expensive for most of the products they offer. The good news is that they offer discounts pretty regularly, so you can bring the prices down to a more reasonable level. They’ve got another discount out right now – the code is XT9W4 and that’ll get you 30% off anything not already on sale through the end of July. I recommend the pillows and towels.

  1. I don’t know why, but I almost universally love hotel linens more than the ones I have at home. I think I need to just buy more of them and get over it. Or move in to a hotel. Or get one of the maids to stop by and make my bed every day. One of those should work.
