Citing skyrocketing checked baggage fees and increasingly strict regulations limiting liquids in carry-on luggage, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has announced a new free amenity for guests: a 24-hour fragrance butler.
Guests can borrow from a selection of 10 perfumes and colognes, eliminating the hassle of packing a liquid.
Each of Rosewood's city properties will feature a fragrance menu distinct to its location. For example, The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel in New York will offer Hermes Eau des Mervailles while Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas will provide Givenchy Dahlia Noir.
A cake 1,068 meters long was chosen for the record-breaking confection because the numbers 6 and 8 in Chinese represent fortune, good luck and prosperity. The cake started at the hotel's Grand Tower lobby and crossed the length of the River Wing lobby by going up and down stairs. Ingredients included 904 organic eggs, 2,304 pounds (1,045 kilograms) of wheat flour and 836 pounds (379 kilograms) of icing sugar, and 150 staff members worked with 80 chefs for 24 hours to prepare and set up the cake.The cake ultimately was sold to the public, and all proceeds will be donated to support children from Shanghai Children's Hospital of Fudan University who need chemotherapy
