Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Minibars now offer lovers’ kits (IHT)

It was the logical progression from selling drinks in a client’s room. I’m only surprised that it’s taken this long.

It’s also clearly the new way to rate the quality of a hotel: Does it offer a “Petite Love Box” (like the Montalambert in Paris) or a “Shag Bag” (like the Sagamore in Miami Beach)? Can’t you just see your grandma saying, “You’re not staying at a Shag Bag hotel?!?”

I tell you, It’s the new star rating.
