    Anyone know if currently Paris has ice buckets and actual glasses in the rooms (not plastic cups)? I was going to pack a small bottle of dish soap and a scrubbing brush so I can wash thoroughly before use. I so prefer drinking out of actual glass rather than plastic...to the point that I'm tempted to pack a cheap glass in my carry-on that I can just throw away there before I fly home.

    ***This would be for in-room libations. I know glass is forbidden outside on the strip. I have a double-walled wine tumbler for that.***

    I’m at Paris right now. There’s an ice bucket and plastic cups in the room. [​IMG]

    Thank you. At least there's ice buckets. I'll pack my own glass. :)

    Yea.. bring your own glass. Unless you order a drink in the casino and then walk it to your room. We often end up with a half dozen wine glasses in our room.

    We always bring a couple of wine glasses up to the room from the casino for in room use.

    My condo is stocked with Aria glassware.

    EDIT: Just for the record, they put them aside for me and fully let me take them. They're about $0.25 each at best. I would never walk out with casino property (except chips that I won...).

    I’m not a fan of the plastic cups at hotels either...I’ve been known to bring my own glassware on trips but at Paris I would probably just snag some glassware from the casino bars.

    CET hotels I have been in other than Harrahs Nola and Caesars Palace have been mostly plastic cups only for a long time. It’s one of those little things that they think doesn’t matter but it really does to some people.

    I'm one of the rare ones that has no desire to use any glass in a hotel room. It's an especially big NO, given the current situation. But about the only thing I drink in the room is bottled or canned soft drinks and water.

    I always take travel size dish soap and a scrub brush and clean them thoroughly before use.

    Ha, so do we.

    Even in past years we decline housekeeping for the duration of our trip (my wife is funny about people among her stuff). Only problem is, by the end of the trip our room definitely has a, let's say "lived in" look.

    We totally don't have a Mandalay Bay-branded champagne glass at home, but if we did, it sits next to the distinctive-shaped Wynn tumbler.

    That plastic bag hanging out of the ice bucket is there to use as a liner so, in theory, your ice never touches the bucket and you don't need to wash it. Pre-COVID I never used them but now I guess it's time to start.

    I know, but with Covid, I think washing things is safest.

    I flew with a flight attendant once, who told me about her experience with a "real" glass in the hotel room. She woke up in the middle of the night, and was thirsty. So she grabbed the glass, and was going to get a drink of water. When she took the paper top off of the glass, she found.........someone had dropped their toenail clippings in the glass.

    I'd rather get in the pool, than use the glass or coffeemaker, that is supplied in the hotel room. :eek:

    No need to pack or buy a glass

    Ha, mine are from the HL room and definitely not branded. But they're pretty nice.
