Was at Portofino hotel in Universal. Wife loved the comfortable mattress.....






Teasing.....

I used to take the soap, shampoo, and conditioner...... Don't take conditioner anymore.... Not enough to 'condition'.

Kind of an interesting story about mattresses. A friend of mine's wife really loves a particular mattress brand they have at a particular hotel they stay at. AFter doing some research, they found out the manufacturer only sells this brand mattress to hotels. He got the hotel to sell them one brand new wrapped in plastic. After putting it in the bed of his pickup and supposedly secured, he looked in the rearview mirror and the mattress had went airborne about 6 feet in the air and was laying in the middle of the road. Fortunately, their was no traffic and they were able to get the mattress back in the bed of the pickup. Their was no damage to the mattress and fortunately their was no accident due to no traffic. Funny thing called life.

Good towels are hard to find, definitely not to be found at Walmart for sure. When I buy things, oftentimes, I get things labeled hotel quality, such as pillows. I can see why people steal towels.

Most hotel towels I have had are not all that great. Used most of the ones I ended up with as rags.

I'm sure the towels are durable to withstand many washings and bleechings. I myself have never used a hotel towel and thought it wasn't very good, so our experiences are different.

For sure they have to hold up. Probably last just a year or so at that. To me most feel "tough." Rarely "nice." They feel like something the Army would issue to me.

Fancy towels don't seem to soak up water very well.

I too take an occasional towel for rag use kept in the garage or trunk of the car.

Our house towels are all grey or black. No white towels are allowed. One might think that's my wife's rule. but it's actually mine.
