As a frequent traveler, I stay in a lot of hotels and am always curious as to what amenities I’ll find in the the rooms. Having written on the topic, I know how important it is to find the right fit, as the products chosen can speak volumes about the hotel brand itself. On occasion, I’m even asked to suggest potential product lines for new properties. Exclusivity is almost always a key consideration. It certainly was for Hilton Hotels & Resorts, which recently announced that it will be featuring a new bath amenity collection made up of six new products by Peter Thomas Roth. The line of hair and body products include the global introduction of Peter Thomas Roth’s Mega-Rich Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, and Body Lotion.
