Every hotel is fighting to get the edge in the hospitality wars and, for many hoteliers, the memorable amenity is the weapon of choice. In recent years, it seems that the "signature amenity," a singular gift to clients designed to create an indelible memory, has become a staple of the luxury hotel business.
In fact, many of the hotels that offer truly bizarre amenities are on the more expensive end of the spectrum. These amenities run the gamut from the physically to intellectually stimulating, from the playful to the downright eccentric. They showcase not only the breadth of what is on offer for savvy travelers, but the diversity of travelers themselves.
Keep in mind that if these amenities are still being offered, someone is providing positive feedback.
