Drink from fancy glasses
The minibars in midrange hotels likely have a couple of cans of soda, domestic beer and plastic bottled water. Yawn. Minibars in luxury hotels pull out all the stops with full-size wine and liquor bottles, locally made granola and candy, and kits for a romantic night, plus gorgeous crystal glasses for a sophisticated touch — like at the stunning Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York. Follow their lead. No matter if you’re sipping a whiskey Old-Fashioned or hydrating with tap water, using a crystal glass will have you feeling like you’re drinking in a classy hotel bar. Available on Amazon, the Marquis by Waterford Markham Double Old Fashioned Glasses ($41.79, set of four, amazon.com) is a chance to own famed Waterford crystal at a value price.
