    We gladly take the soaps and any good lotion home. The hotel soaps make good guest soap for the bathroom and the lotion is great for carrying around in my purse. I really don't go out of my way to get extra unless is is spa quality or a really special brand but it seems like if you tip, a lot of housekeepers will shower you in toiletries whether you want them or not.

    I too have a large collection of the high quality M Resort Pens (and paper).

    Last week we were at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix and have a lot of their pens now as well.

    I have an absurd amount of stuff from Vegas.

    I have a friend visiting me in Australia from Canada and I was able to get his room made up as close to the Bellagio as possible. Bellagio pillows, bathrobe, towel - even the nicer shampoos they put in the Villa (I think it's called London-something).

    I'm considering leaving a good amount of space for a nice Wynn pillow in a second suitcase.

    Maybe I shouldn't be saying all this stuff on a public forum.

    Oh, and I took two really nice Bellagio hangers as well, except they don't really fit properly on a standard hanger bar.

    I use a particular shampoo and soap so I don't use/take any of the complimentary toiletries.

    To me, it is borderline stealing if a guest is not going to use those things when staying at the hotel.

    They will be paid for out of your room rate, so I'd make sure to take them :)

    I don't think I've ever left a hotel without an extra roll of toilet paper & a box of Kleenex.

    I regularly empty the rooms of such stuff, to the point of having the wife yell at me for taking the shampoo she was going to use! Mostly the stuff goes into dignity packages for the local shelters, but we keep the stuff from Wynncore for use at home. This morning, in fact, I used a bar of soap we got from the Tower Suites last trip. We also have a roll of their "Emergency Backup" TP in the cabinet. The sewing kits from Wynn are especially prized by my students. We also use the notepads and pens regularly for grocery lists.

    BTW, the Tower Suites are where you can really score stuff - luffas, back brushes, bigger and better toiletries, shower caps...the list is a long one.

    Yeah, I used to jack all that stuff from pretty much every hotel I stayed at. After a while, I realized that I rarely used the stuff once I got home. So I have a drawer of hotel stuff and never use it. Its hoarding that I dont need.

    So now, it has to something I REALLY like for me to leave with it. Besides, I have started bringing all of my own toiletries because I never know what will be in the room or if I will like it.

    The suites at GVR have really nice metal pens with re-fillable inserts. I was there last year and about an hour after I checked out I was driving on the strip and realized I had left my money in one of the closet safes. Got back to the hotel to see if my key would work but no dice. I called the operator to see if security could come up and open the room. As we were waiting a maintenance man came out of the room. I explained the situation and asked if I could go in and retreive the $$ from the safe. Once that was done he was walking back with us to the elevator. He said that the room was getting a complete overhaul because of what happened a month earlier (I had called maintenance earlier in the stay because of what appeared to be missing items, items not working etc...). He said that one of the previous guests took everything of value he possibly could. 50" plasma tv in the living room, 42" plasma tv in the bedroom, in-wall speakers, directv box + receiver, bose alarm clock, pool cues and balls etc... He even broke the safes out of the wall and took those as well. He laughed and said they had the guys cc on file so everything (including repairs) got charged to the guys card. How in the hell do you get an old, heavy 50" plasma tv out of a hotel? To think someone actually had to unbolt the tv and mount and wheel or carry it out the front door. I said that must be pretty rare and he tells me that people steal stuff all the time. The top 2 were tv's and those Bose alarm clocks. So don't feels bad about pens and soap. It sounds like some people have progressed to much better souveniers:whistle:

    I'm guessing that when this happens it has to be a stolen cc or something like that. I can't believe people would lose and do something like this knowing the front desk has all of their personal info.

    Interesting, I always bring my own TP. I also raid the soap and shampoo every casino trip.

    Thanks - you are trying to turn me to a life of crime lol!!!!!!!!!!! I will say that when we got to the car the last time the kids & I stayed at the Swan/Dolphin at Disney I made a comment about 'Well at least you guys didn't steal the pillows'. There was this DEAD SILENCE. Then I finally get 'I didn't!' from my daughter & 'I didn't' from my son & my daughter in law just goes 'Oops!'. I should have known since all I heard for 5 days was how great the pillows were.

    Aaaaaaanyway, the razors at Wynn Tower suites are the best I've found anywhere (retail included). I make sure I get at least one a day per stay.

    There are places around here that take the donated small travel size products from hotels too. I usually only take the shampoo and conditioner the last day or two if I like the product and smell. Would probably take them each day, but I'm usually close to the 50 pound limit on my suitcase and can't chance adding much more weight. I really liked the Aria products and took two of each of those home with me this last trip.

    i've always wondered whether the gowns / slippers are up for grabs? - we took the slippers from MGM Grand but didn't dare nab the gowns...

    Stayed somewhere in San Francisco once and we always regret not taking the rubber duck from the bathroom... again, we were unsure if that was taking things a step too far (or if its 'expected')

    I refuse to take anything other than the consumable items like shampoo and soap, there is a reason they put a hold on your credit card. If people took whatever then the coffee makers would be going home with people, the TV's and everything else. We just had a couple here arrested in Ohio that got caught taking the TV from their hotel room and were charged with a crime. As for the robes, slippers and stuff, I do not use them normally when I am home, do not use them when I am on vacation and would not take them. I know from working in a hotel that the stuff is accounted for upon check out. Some were charged for it, some were not.
