It was probably then Starwood’s Aloft brand that introduced me to these refillable bathroom pump bottles that I hated at the time.
Most hotel chains have decided to move away from individually packed bathroom amnesties and introduce these refillable bottles.
There are many pros for hotels when they move to these large bottles:
1. Cost Effective (lower cost)
2. Less Work (housekeeping doesn’t need to replace them daily)
3. Fewer Requests (to bring more)
4. Less Trash
The main driver for hotels is to lower costs.
The only con I can think of is that these may not be as hygienic as individual amenities that are replaced between guests.
I have to be honest and disclose that I was vehemently against these bulk bathroom items, but I have come to a complete 180 on this subject.
If done correctly, they are far superior to the super tiny single-use ones.
I also thought it would cheaper luxury brands, but you can do these refillable bottles to look rather eloquent.
