Fish for rent
The Belgian hotel Charleroi Airport offers their guests fish for rent. For €3.50 the fish will spend the whole night with you. The hotel believes that the creature will help provide company to those who are lonely. The idea is good, but the Belgians have a very peculiar idea of what makes for an interesting conversation partner.

In the American Aloft Cupertino they have come up with a modern solution to a long-standing delicate problem. The hotel has a special robot that delivers toilet paper to the rooms. At the reception there are no more awkward requests like “Hey-um, I’ve run out of… ahem…well, could I get another roll of toilet…” You won’t blush in front of the robot.

In the British Malmaison hotels, they don’t only encourage a nearly illegal demand, but in fact they even push guests to take the toiletries away with them. Labels such as “The best shampoo you have ever stolen” and “Pack me up and take me home” have appeared on the bottles. It looks cool. Are these shampoos taken more often? When something is allowed you’re less likely to want to do it.

In the Viennese hotel Vienna House Easy Trier they are happy to host animals. However, they aren’t happy when people become animals. This is not likely something that anyone would love, but this particular hotel was noted for its unusual straightness.

A sleepy choice
Which type of pillow would you like tonight: soft, synthetic, or warm like a wool blanket? Perhaps a firm pillow? At the Vietnamese InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort there are pillows for anyone’s tastes and dreams. It’s an excellent idea that also you use at home: collect pillows made from different materials and assign each of them its own day of the week. Or establish a home dictatorship in order to manipulate family members. If you are well-behaved, you sleep with a comfortable one. If you didn’t wash your dishes, you will sleep with a synthetic one for three nights!

If you stay at the Сourtyard By Marriott Aventura Mall in Miami, then you need to get ready for business much ahead of time. Each guest at the hotel receives a rubber ducky to splash with in the bathroom. So even if you weren’t planning on taking a bath, it’s going to be impossible to resist. Set aside an extra hour to get ready: you will not notice how a quick shower will turn into saving Duckburg from water bombing and how washing your hands will become duck rafting.

At MOXY Phoenix Tempe in Arizona they know how to make a night into a fairy tale for any guest. Literally speaking.

Guests sleep long and sweetly.
