Admittedly this is entirely insignificant in the grand scheme of things, though discussing the minutiae of travel is what we do around here.
Does anyone else not drink red wine, yet consistently receive it as a welcome gift every time they stay at a Hyatt outside the US? I end up just leaving the bottle in the room and I guess that works out for the hotel because they can reuse it for another guest, but at the same time I feel like seeing if they’ll swap it out for something else.
I don’t want to be tacky in telling them what I’d like as a “gift,” but at the same time the “gift” is a published benefit.
So has anyone ever requested not to receive a certain type of amenity, and if so, how did you go about it? Leave it in the comments section of the reservation, ask at check-in, etc.?
Surely I’m not the only one that seems to face this problem with virtually every hotel stay. If only the other major hotels were more like Kimpton in this regard, which lets you choose your food and beverage amenity as an elite member.
Bonus (and creeper) points to anyone that can tell me at which Hyatt the below picture was taken.
