Hotel Amenities You Never Knew You Needed

by Cathay Che

When was the last time you got a tattoo in a hotel bar, or had dinner from one of America's hottest chefs delivered to your room? Never, you say? Well, then, you're just not staying at the right hotels. When you go on vacation, you expect a seductive room, memorable meals, and maybe even 24/7 butler service. But some properties are going even further in their attempt to wow guests by offering unique amenities that you never knew you needed (or wanted). Like most of life's little luxuries, these perks are easy to get used to and may even become addictive: Once you've tried paragliding to your beach villa, or have been welcomed by elephants when you arrive at your hotel, will a limo and a friendly bellman ever be enough again?
