Mandarin Oriental, New York, offers deliciously scented, organic bath products from red flower, a New York-based beauty company. By opting for red flower, the New York hotel hopes to drive home its mission to reflect a sense of place — in this case, the Big Apple. You’ll find your bathroom stocked with ocean-scented toiletries including cleansing shampoo, replenishing conditioner, purifying body wash, moisturizing body lotion, bar soap and bath salts. All come in elegant gray bottles with a turquoise floral motif on the front. In case the hotel-size samples of red flower’s fresh toiletries just aren’t enough, you can visit their Soho boutique to experience more of the line, including the Italian blood orange scent.
What we also love about the bathrooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is that in addition to all the amenities needed to make bath time more enjoyable, you’ll also discover a box containing shaving kits with a razor and Gilchrist & Soames shaving cream; a dental kit that includes a travel toothbrush and Crest toothpaste, shower caps, and vanity kits containing cotton swabs and pads. And should you forget anything else like dental floss, the concierge will happily procure any item you require, though some items may carry a surcharge.
