Who doesn’t love browsing in the gift shop while staying at a luxury hotel? Or, maybe you love a blanket or a robe that was in your room and would like to purchase one for your home. Well, you are in luck, because many hotels now have online boutiques where you can purchase their signature products ranging from toiletries to the actual mattress and linens that are in the rooms, in addition to many unique gift items that have been curated on behalf of the hotel.
Here are the online boutiques of a few of my favorite hotels:
|Ritz Carlton Pajamas for Men by Bedhead|
My personal favorite hotel company, Ritz Carlton, has a lovely online boutique – The Ritz Carlton Shops selling everything from signature candles and spa products to luxury clothing and homegoods. The beds in their hotel rooms are so comfortable that I purchased the feather bed and down comforter from their collection for my own bed.
|Westin “Heavenly” Dog Bed|
Westin also sells their signature “Heavenly” beds, bedding and bath products in their online shop, along with other gift items. They even sell the curved shower curtain rods that they use in the bathrooms. And, lest we forget man’s best friend, they also have “heavenly” dog beds!
|Herman Miller Eames Chair by Hyatt at Home|
In their Hyatt At Home online store, Hyatt, in addition to the ever present bed experience, has partnered with Tumi to sell their luggage in their online boutique. They have also created their own line of fitness apparel and gear called Stay Fit. Every room at the Park Hyatt Chicago has a reproduction Eames chair (pictured) by Herman Miller also available to purchase from Hyatt at Home.
|Doorman Bear from Distinctly Waldorf|
Distinctly Waldorf is the online outlet for the famed Waldorf Astoria in New York. They also sell their signature bedding and bath amenities found in the rooms. Additionally, they sell Waldorf chef’s aprons and hats, as well as several cookbooks from their long history.
|Kenzo Takada Hibiscus Bowl|
If you like more modern hotels, So Boutique from Sofitel has partnered with the designer of their hotel Sofitel So Mauritius, Kenzo Takada, to create decorative objects, pillows, beach towels, and even dishes, sold exclusively through their online boutique.
|Ritz Paris Signature Champagne and Flutes, Ritz Paris Candle and Bar Hemingway Ashtray|
And, last but certainly NOT least, even while the Ritz Paris is closed for a two year long renovation, you can still own a little piece of Parisian heaven by shopping online at the Ritz Paris Boutique. With signature products ranging from candles and room scents to a complete set of Imperial China, you can fulfill your Ritz Paris dreams at home until they reopen in 2014.
If only I could have daily housekeeping and in house laundry from any one of these hotels to truly recreate the hotel experience in my own home!

Good morning sweet Sandy!
I have been away for a bit from the computer; several substitute teaching jobs and trudging through traffic in our snow has kept me away!
I LOVE a good gift shop from a beautiful hotel! Oh how I used to love to go to the Ritz Carlton in Boston when I lived there, just to go to the JEWELRY SHOPS!!!!!!!
Wishing you a warm and cozy day, Anita

Great for some hotels with online boutiques. We won't be missing out a thing. Such a nice idea owning some of them.
Really nice! Even though I can't go to these nice hotels I still really enjoy the idea of buying a little something from the hotel to take home! Thank you for sharing.
