In-Room Hotel Swag Too Good Not to Buy

Forget about your hotel room's stealable—and, let's face it, forgettable—small soaps: these in-room items, which can be purchased at check-out, are mementos worth shelling out for.

Wooden coffers at the JW Marriott Los Cabos, Mexico

Mexico's sun-drenched Baja Peninsula has its fair share of markets and artisan shops selling authentic gems, but one of our favorite finds can be found in the confines of the JW Marriott Los Cabos. Each guest bath features a wooden coffer (500 Pesos, or roughly $25), a handicraft from Olinalá, Guerrero, that acts as a salt holder—though it could easily become a catch-all for little trinkets at home.

Illustrated umbrellas at The Watergate Hotel, Washington D.C.

Washington D.C.'s buzziest hotel this year is known for its storied political past and midcentury-mod revamp, but we're especially partial to a chic-yet-functional addition to its guest rooms: illustrated umbrellas ($35 each) depicting hotel staff clad in uniforms designed by Mad Men costumer Janie Bryant.

Monogrammed pillowcases at The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel, NYC

Attentive service goes a long way in our book—especially when it's tailored with a specific guest in mind. That's why we're over the moon for the monogrammed pillowcases found at New York's venerable Carlyle hotel (free gifts for regular guests and those staying in suites). It's a small token of a sumptuous New York lifestyle some can only dream of.

24-karat-gold iPads at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Dubai

If you can afford a stay at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, the unmistakeable sail-shaped tower on a man-made island off Dubai, then you'll be rewarded at check-in with a 24-karat-gold iPad designed exclusively for the hotel. It functions as a virtual concierge, and you'll have to surrender it to reception upon departure—unless, of course, you can dole out a cool $10,200.
