I recently realized that I’ve become a bit of a spoiled traveller. A friend of mine complained about having to walk on a dirty carpet and I suggested that she keep some free hotel slippers for that situation. She looked at me, paused, and then said “I’ve never seen free slippers in a hotel before. What kind of hotels do you stay in?”
I have to admit that my standard for accommodations has crept up since the Motel 8’s of my youth. I blame corporate business travel and the Starwood Preferred Guest program for getting me hooked on all the niceties of the upper middle hotel class.
These awesome hotel slippers for the whole family were provided by the Disneyland Hotel in Hong Kong [hongkongdisneyland.com]. I’m not sure if they stocked the room based on our reservation or if they always assume a family of 4 but they all fit perfectly.
The Hong Kong version of the Disneyland Hotel is probably the only one I’ll be seeing much of. We recently booked a family trip to Anaheim to see Cars Land but just couldn’t justify the price of the on-property hotels. Here’s hoping that the Hyatt Orange County has some slippers for us.

That is hysterical – just so TRUE!!! I HATE walking on carpet in hotel rooms!!! Slippers is a GREAT perk!!
Thanks for linking up!
I hate to break it to you, but as a VERY frequent guest of the Hyatt Orange County, I can confirm that there’s no free slippers. There is a Target right across the street. If it’s that important, I’m sure you can find a pair for a couple of bucks over there. They won’t be as cool as your Disneyland Hotel ones though. Those are cool.
Nice concept of hotel’s slippers, Very diferent instead use of carpet in hotels. It makes really different.
I haven’t had the pleasure of finding slippers in my hotel room…I hope to someday! When we went to Cars Land this past August we stayed at the Best Western across the street from the theme park. No complimentary slippers, but it was much more budget friendly (more $ to spend on souvenirs), and it was great to be walking distance to Disneyland and California Adventure.
