Now you no longer have to "borrow" the bathrobes, candles and toiletries of your favorite hotels—at least you don't if you stay at Westin Hotels and Resorts. The group has partnered with Amazon.com to allow web surfers access to a virtual store featured inside their hotel rooms. It’s a useful alternative to trying to make off with an item only to find it charged to your room after check-out.
Those that appreciate Westin’s Heavenly Bed, Heavenly Bath items, specialty linens and assorted scented candles will soon be able to purchase the items online. The product line is called Westin Wellness Collection and will be organized in categories like food, fitness, home and spa. In addition, Westin will include a few related items such as products from Kate’s Paperie and Riedel glassware.
As an incentive, travelers who stay twice at Westin properties Mondays through Thursdays before May 13, 2010 will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. More information about the terms of the promotion is available at westin.com/balance.
