Steal This Bathrobe: The Best Hotel Products to Swipe (& Buy)

You’re wrapped in a plush terry robe, reposing on thousand-thread-count sheets, listening to a custom-programmed iPod on the dock next to your bed, and feeling as though this is nothing more than the lifestyle you deserve. So who could blame you for wanting to take some of the accoutrements of your newfound bliss home from your luxury hotel? These are top three souvenirs we recommend you swipe.

Toiletries: These are always a safe bet, since they’re there for you to use anyway. We love the Remede toiletry kits given out by the St. Regis, the Malin + Goetz soaps used by the Morgans Hotel Group properties (including the Delano in Miami and the Mondrian in Los Angeles) and the exclusive Hermès bath products at all Sofitel locations.

Slippers: Hotels actually get a certain amount of free advertising from branded products escaping the confines of their hotel, and even the non-branded versions still provide travelers with fond memories of their trip. Our favorites come from the amenity-packed Asian hotels, including fuzzy slippers at the Mandarin Oriental’s multiple locations, and the Havianas at the InterContinental Hong Kong.

Personalized Stationery: Once a standard part of luxury hotel service, personalized stationery is a pleasant enough surprise that these days, you might be inspired enough to actually write a letter. While hotel stationery and pens are always fair game, no one can complain about something personalized going home with you, and you can find it at a surprising number of places, including the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, the Trump SoHo in New York , the Stafford London, Chicago’s Talbott, and the New World Shanghai.

That said, not all of us want to steal from our favorite hotels (who wants that on their guest profile?) and hotels have of course developed procedures to address this—many sticky-fingered guests will now find their more outrageous grift charged to their room bill. So why not shop their style the legal way? Many hip hotels have added online shops full of items that either appear on property or embody their style, like these three:

The W Store: W Hotels is happy to sell you everything from the bed you slept in to the music in the air, as well as apparel from brands like John Varvatos and Mara Hoffman. We particularly love their collection of statement jewelry and their eclectic blend of home accessories.

Shutters Beach Style: This Santa Monica hotel is one of a handful that are right on the beach, but the interiors are as striking as the views. Known for its impressive contemporary art collection which belongs to the hotel’s owners, their online store has drawings by Frank Gehry and Ellsworth Kelly, as well as stunning homewares like their signature rug and pewter table accessories.

Shop The Standard: They’re on the cutting edge of urban hotel style, so it’s no wonder that they’d have a quality online presence. The covetable goods include everything from RK Ripper fixed-gear bicycles to limited-edition art prints to the kissing puppy salt-and-pepper shakers on the table at the Standard Grill—so stealable that they’re listed for purchase right on the menu.

Luxe Lofts: The Best Penthouse Hotel Suites in the U.S.

Las Vegas: Cosmopolitan The hotel’s Mandrake suite stands out even in a town known for excess, and at 4,395 square feet of city views and sleek entertainment packed into every corner, they deserve their notoriety. The David Rockwell-designed suite is as ultramodern as the rest of the hotel, with his signature blend of natural materials and contemporary furniture, and the terraces, outdoor soaking tubs, private dining area, and 24-hour service ensures you’ll have as much fun in your suite as out of it. Reserved for ultra high rollers and celebs, and rarely offered (or publicized) beyond those circles. Starting at $25,000/night.

New York: St. Regis There’s nothing like true old-fashioned New York City opulence, and the Presidential Suite at the St. Regis positively defines the look. The floor-to-ceiling windows frame a picture-perfect view of Central Park, while the 3,400 square feet of interior space include three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a classically-appointed gentleman’s library, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a dining room with seating for eight. A full range of amenities and white-glove service ensure that you’ll settle in easily into your home away from home. From $16,500. www.starwoodhotels.com/stregis/newyork

Los Angeles: Four Seasons Beverly Hills – The Presidential Suite East is a beautifully lighted 3,235 square foot spread overlooking the city, from a beautifully appointed modern traditional space, with a custom kitchen, multiple marble bathrooms, and an impressive selection of contemporary art decorating the walls. If you can bring yourself to leave the room, you’ll have the use of a brand-new luxury car (we like the Maserati) to get you around the city. $9,850/night.

Miami: JW Marriot Opened about a year ago, the Presidential Suite is the crown jewel of the downtown JW Marriot — even compared to the 50,000 square foot entertainment and sports complex located on the 19th and 20th floors. With amenities like an NBA-approved basketball area and a full-size tennis court, it’s no wonder that the Asian-inspired 2,500 square foot suite has played host to athletes like Anna Kournikova and Rafael Nadal. $4,000/night.

Houston: Hotel Zaza The epicenter of all things young and hip in this Southern city, the scene is always a mix of upscale locals and hotel’s clientele, but in the case of the hotel’s 2,200 square foot Black Label suite, it’s better to be a visitor, so you can enjoy the glitzy chandeliers hung from dramatic black ceilings, marble fireplaces, and oversize balcony with a seating area and two-person outdoor tub. $2,500/night.
