Recently came back from a trip to London and Paris. We took our new travel sheets, already used one time in NYC at the Marriott Residence Inn (sheets were in great shape but oddly noisy). The sheets are Frette-made zebra jacquard from Kimpton. Very nice. Anyway, at our London hotel we had the most fabulous sheets so left the travel sheets in the suitcase. But in Paris the hotel sheets were just OK. For the first night we left the bed as-is, but on the second night we decided to go ahead and use our sheets since we had them with us. They made the bed so much more luxurious. I might buy these sheets for my home as well, they're really great looking and feel wonderful.

We're taking another trip to Europe very soon. Because we'll be visiting multiple cities and travelling by train between, and also because we have multiple flights both outbound and inbound, we've decided to travel with carry-ons only. We will take pillowcases but no sheets. It will be the first time I haven't travelled with sheets in more than 10 years. I'm not really concerned, my experience with bedding in Europe has been quite positive, only on this last trip in the Paris hotel did I feel compelled to use the travel sheets but would have been OK without them.

Since I last posted on this thread, I no longer take my own bed with me. I now take my own hotel.

Yesterday in Bend Oregon I saw something I had never seen before.
It was a motorcycle with a sidecar that looked like a mini camping trailer. I've seen the little camping trailers towed behind motorcycles before but this one seemed to have a twin bed with a little storage beneath it.

Taking one's own hotel is so tacky, so minimalist. I take a small township with me when I travel - tipping the pilot assists.

If I travel in a short period of time, no I don't. But if I need to stay longer, I bring my own things.

We bring sheets( the easily packable t shirt kind) because my wife is very allergic to scented laundry soaps and dryer sheets.

Must have been topped by advertisement/spam.

This 13 yo thread will never die.

Every couple of years a spammer finds it, tops it, and we're off to the races again.

Ha. I remember this thread. Funnily enough, I just bought a little sleep sack from Amazon. It's tiny and can fit easily in a purse so no bother to tote around. I've got a few trips planned and will be staying in cheap places so this will come in handy. I wish I'd had it in Italy several years back. We rented a lovely apartment but I was mildly allergic to whatever laundry detergent they used and spent most of the trip itching. Not so fun.

This is an example of why I come back to Fodors: the entertainment value on a slow day.

Thanks for reviving this wonderful thread.
We'll have to watch it though! As a 13 year old, is it going to throw teenage tantrums & rebel?

Nice to see lots of posters who don't, and too many who can't, post here now.

Lovely to see Dogster. Whatever happened to Zelphiacat?

I've considered bringing my own husband but it seems unfair not to use the services of the local staff.

Didn't plan on posting on this old thread.

Was searching for old posts by the Dogster, and, Kleeblatt, saw your post.
You seem to be a good traveler, making do with whatever is available. However, your lodging offers more than Holiday Inn Express, etc. where a pool and workout room are the big draws. Details would be helpful, Hotel brands you prefer and must you reserve local services ahead?
