The Best Hotel Amenities

The minds behind Manhattan’s new Gramercy Park Hotel—Ian Schrager and Julian Schnabel—have managed to do the impossible: surprise us in the shower. Just when we were expecting yet another L’Occitane bath gel, we discovered Hamadi Ginger Soymilk shampoo, Red Flower Moroccan Rose bath salts, and Mario Badescu’s vitamin E body lotion. (We later heard the products were chosen by Linda Wells, editor-in-chief of Allure.) Rooms from $525; 212-920-3300
