Sleep better:

With hotels in Seattle, San Diego, San Francisco, Portland and Chicago, Pineapple Hospitality group offers its guests The Naked Experience™ which provides a great night’s sleep and the freedom to get comfortably naked – just like at home. Inspired by traditional European hotel bedding, each Pineapple Bed comes with two individually folded duvets to allow each sleeper to snuggle into a whole new level of comfort with every stitch of super-soft bedding. Extra goodies include fluffy robes and slippers, and a top sheet and blankets in case traditional bedding is preferred.

Drink better:

Soda anyone? No thanks! The Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas recently installed a Moet Champagne vending machine. Guests can purchase a $20 voucher from the front desk at check in.

Guests can choose from eight different local craft brewers and have draft beer poured directly in their rooms. The growlers are 32 oz. and insulated so they don’t need refrigeration.
