I know pre-merger, Starwood was pushing hard to eliminate all plastic bottles at hotels, both in room and in meetings, but was getting pushback from some hotels. Marriott has been pushing more gently on the issue but I'm glad to hear that the Springhill you stayed in isn't providing them.

Hilton gives golds two bottles on check-in but many people turn them down. I had a check in the other day at a HIlton and they offered them ... I told them no thanks and asked how many people didn't take them, she said most turn them down.

In a recent stay at a Marriott in Hawaii where they have eliminated plastic bottles, they give a reusable collapsible plastic flask at check-in and have filtered water dispensers around the hotel.
