Silliest, Most Decadent, or Most Useless Hotel Amenety

For fun on Friday, what is the silliest, most decadent, over the top, or even most thoughtful hotel amenety you have seen in Las Vegas? I'll throw out a few:

The Skylofts pillow menu. In addition to the 1/2 dozen pillows on the bed is a seperate Pillow Menu. With 15 different types of pillows you can request.

At Four Seasons, the Verandah's famous ice cubes. If you order Iced Tea the cubes are made of frozen Iced Tea so they will not dilute your drink.

And my vote for most useless goes to the notary service included in the Mirage resort fee.

Guess I can't really comment on decadent since MB is the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in, but MB provides you with real glass wine glasses and a corkscrew...I thought that was pretty nifty.

>>>At Four Seasons, the Verandah's famous ice cubes. If you order Iced Tea the cubes are made of frozen Iced Tea so they will not dilute your drink.<<< Seriously....what a great idea!

I was going to go with the toilet-side phone but someone beat me to it...

I'll say the Evian misters at the Four Season's pool; the people who walk around and spray you with Evian while you're laying out by the pool.

Not just for Vegas, but for all 5 star hotels around the world.

Turn down service - I hate to be disturbed early in the evening, and I am perfectly capable of putting the slippers by the bed by my self ;)

Furthermore the chocolates are never really good..

For the most useless amenity I'm gonna go with a classic that some people may disagree with.

The hairnet

Because I'm not 85 and and I didn't just get a perm.....

Supposedly Elvis died on the throne. I'd heard at one point that the bathroom was the most common spot for a heart attack, not sure if that's true. Maybe the phone's not such a bad idea.

The scale can be a useful amenity, but not for weighing anything other than my husband holding the suitcase, and then doing the math to make sure we come in underweight for the flight home. :=0

I agree...we use the scale to weigh husband and suitcase. I'm always very close to the 50lbs. on our suitcases.
