A litmus test of luxury while you’re away from home, a hotel’s bathroom products may be small in size, but they play a large role in determining guest satisfaction. It’s no surprise, then, that hotels are becoming more discerning when it comes to the toiletries they stock. Of course, there are plenty of individual properties with exquisite offerings laid out on the sink, but what about hotel brands? We’ve selected 10 companies that offer outstanding products at every single one of their properties, which should remove some guesswork when you plan your next hotel stay. —Zachary Laks

Fairmont Hotels – Le Labo
Featuring: Le Labo
An elite perfume house founded in 2006 in New York City, Le Labo has garnered international acclaim for its handcrafted, custom concoctions. For one of the line’s most popular scents, Le Labo summoned the legendary roses of the French Riviera, particularly Grasse, France, to create Rose 31 eau de parfum, now found in nearly all of Fairmont Hotel Group’s more than 70 hotels across the globe. The scent is sophisticated and vibrant, featuring 31 ingredients that accentuate the essence of the roses of southern France, with hints of cedar, cumin, and amber. Infused into the hotel room’s shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, and soap bar, just one whiff of the scent transports guests to the French coast of the Mediterranean. However, it is important to note that you won’t find Le Labo at The Plaza, a Fairmont-managed property (where Caudalie amenities are set in every room); Fairmont Grand del Mar (with luxe bath amenities created exclusively for the property by Red Flower); and Fairmont’s three properties in Kenya (Fairmont The Norfolk, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, and Fairmont Masai Mara).
