Marriott to Eliminate Single-use Toiletry Bottles

Sounds like the luxury brands will still keep the small bottles though.

It does encapsulate Marriottís approach to luxury quite well. Few of the best hotels Iíve been to use single use plastics even today.

For how long though that's the question.

So Marriott is copying IHG? Here is the IHG thread from July. https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/inte...ll-brands.html

Only 115 posts. I am sure that this forum can beat that when it comes to toilet talk!

I have no issue with these dispenser type of toiletries. However hotels sometimes failed to keep the dispenser in presentable condition.
Dirty dispensers definitely won't make good impression for any hotel.

SO Sofitel Singapore and Four Seasons Jimbaran did use these refillable dispenser for toiletries and they manage to keep the dispensers in very good condition.
Some budget type hotels use the wall mount dispenser and it does looks awfully dirty

Good. Get rid of them everywhere. Every small step is a good step. #ClimateChangeIsReal

I actually prefer the dispensers rather than fiddling with the little bottles. The environmental benefits are a nice plus.

Good.

And it's not like Marriotts ever have toiletries I'd want to take with me . . . .

The Luxury properties do- I canít imagine those changing.

I totally agree this is a good change for the climate. Very glad to see it.

But I hope they maintain them better and cleaner as was suggested above. I checked into a Courtyard or TownePlace recently where the lids for the large dispensers were on the floor of the tub.

Re. toilet talk, I got a new puppy on Saturday and he's redecorating my house.

Ugh, I wish they'd at least keep some single-use bottles on hand at the front desk, like the disposable razors and toothbrushes. I really dislike the guise that they're doing it "for the environment" too, just admit you're saving costs and be upfront about it.

I stayed at The Gwen [Luxury Collection] in Chicago in July, and they had wall-mounted dispensers of Molton Brown shampoo, conditioner and bath gel, while my subsequent stay at the Hacienda Santa Rosa also had little ceramic jars in the bathrooms that would be refilled with their homemade products. In Marriott's own press release, they featured a photo with Aromatherapy Associates products in dispensers - and those are used by their JW Marriott properties which suggests that even their luxury-branded properties will be subject to this change. W is phasing out their partnership with Bliss and will be launching their own AWAY-branded stuff soon, so I wouldn't be surprised to see this in dispensers either.

As long as Marriott features higher-end products, I'm very happy to see this transition away from little bottles.
