Most people walk into their hotel rooms and may expect to find an Andes mint or some similar breath refreshment nestled neatly on their pillow. If you’re guest staying at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas starting today, you might find a slightly more extravagant prize on your pillow in the form of a Bulgari wristwatch. Don’t try and return it to lost and found either– Bulgari wants you to keep it.
In a recession-busting promotion for those with deep pockets, the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas is teaming up with the brand-new Bulgari boutique for a a shopping promotion called “Suite Dreams” (get it?) For $399 you get a one-night stay in one of Ritz’s deluxe suites with transport to and from the Bulgari store in NorthPark plus lots of other lux perks such as breakfast for two, dedicated concierge assistance, valet parking, and a gift from Bulgari in the form of either a fragrance or a coffee table book.
However, after an exhaustive day of shopping and eating, one lucky guest will come home to turndown service in the form of a brand-spanking new Bulgari Carbon Gold Limited Edition Watch similar to the shown one here lying on or underneath their pillow. Bulgari and the Ritz are supposedly giving away one per month for an indefinite period of time so if you happen to have a few hundred extra bucks and are in Dallas, why not pick a weekend and go? While it’s great to see hotels offering promotions along the lines of reimbursing your baggage fees, a nicer perk like a free giveaway reminds us that travel is supposed to be fun… and rewarding.
