10 Hotels with Amazing Amenities


Sure, free drinks and complimentary Wi-Fi rank high on the lists of most desirable hotel perks among travelers in general, but these days, those are just the beginning when it comes to in-room extras. Here are ten of our favorite finds from around the globe.

1. Orbit In (Palm Springs, CA)

Record players (with real vinyl records)
The furnishings and decor were right on target, including a functional (contemporary) record player and a collection of vinyl in the hotel office.
