Four Ridiculous Things Luxury Hotels Offer

Digital Vision

The whole point of staying at a luxury hotel is to be pampered. But the amenities hotels are offering are getting and more ridiculous.

Check this out- the Ritz-Carlton in Miami Beach has a “tanning butler” on staff whose one and only job is to rub people down with sunscreen. And now at the Ritz in Dallas, they have a “guacamologist.” That’s right- a person who specializes in making guacamole. I couldn’t make this up if I tried.

Here are a few more crazy services offered at high-end hotels.

#1.) Fragrance Butlers- some Rosewood Hotels including The Carlyle in New York will send an assortment of perfumes and colognes to your room 24 hours a day and and a butler brings it to your door on a silver platter.

#2.) Surfing Lessons for Your Dog- the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego has a dog-surfing instructor on staff. There’s a package that comes with a one-night stay, and a pair of K-9 board shorts.

#3.) Sleep Experts- a lot of hotels offer “pillow menus” so that you can choose the exact firmness you want. But the Benjamin Hotel in New York takes it a step further and has a “sleep concierge” to help you choose and and if you can’t sleep, they’ll send up a glass of warm milk and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made with banana bread.

#4.) People Who Plan Your Dates for You- a concierge at any half-decent hotel can make dinner reservations, but some luxury hotels have employees who actually help you plan dates, or even plan a marriage proposal. The Opus Hotel in Vancouver has a “Cupid Concierge” and the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel in Boston has a, quote, “Proposal Artist.”
