Subject: Re: Talking about amenities
I don't generally don't take any of the amenities, unless I have just run out of shampoo or whatever and need it. There have been a few exceptions:

In Las Vegas, while staying at the Flamingo Hilton for my nieces wedding - a lot of us took home soaps stamped with a flamingo for me. One of my bathrooms is decorated with Flamingoes.

The other amenity I just had to take was a condom with a note about making sure the friends I meet and take back to my room were of age. It was in an upscale hotel in Manilla.

I also sometimes take notepads that are marked with the hotel name. I take them to use them tho - I like to have little memory-provokers of my trips!
