Come on, you know this is the moment you have been waiting for. The Shower Gel Chronicles by Chicago Addick
. What a wonderful idea for a blog, although if you click on the 'Next Blog >>'
link at the top of this page a couple of times, you will probably find that some dullard has already snappled it. Drat!
I spent too many nights in hotels in the last 12 months, and therefore you will be grateful to find out, took a lot of showers. Is it so unusual that I like to lather myself up with a bit of shower gel in the morning? Okay, before I lose your attention without further ado, please let me introduce you to The Gellies
™, Chicago Addick's Annual Shower Gel Oscars."You want more what?" The how dare you ask award.
Winner: Waldorf Astoria, New York
This landmark hotel does not have landmark service. A request for washing implements was met with a plastic bag full of earbuds, hair conditioner and toothbrushes being sent to my room!
A close 2nd: The Cove, Paradise Island, Bahamas
Service with a shrug.The rabid soap and fresh air award.
Winner: The Westin, Kyoto
Er, do the Japanese get by on karoake and whiskey alone?
A close 2nd: Club Quarters, New York
Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I could pee into the loo from my bed.
Shower Gel heaven award
Winner: American Club, Kohler, Wisconsin
This had an unfair advantage as the hotel is owned by a bathroom company. More bubbles than the Boleyn.
A close 2nd: Park Hyatt, Tokyo
Faith restored in the Japanese cleaniness stakes.
