At the Corinthia Hotel in London, they have relaxation down to a science.

For bed and breakfast owners who offer robes in their rooms, it’s not that unusual these days to see guests wearing a robe to breakfast.
That’s how much visitors love these robes. And who can blame them? There’s nothing like a warm, soft bathrobe to take the chill out of a cold morning.
The sight of a guest wearing a robe to breakfast would have been unusual years ago. But that’s not the only thing that’s different. The types of robes offered to guests at beds and breakfasts, spas and resorts have changed as well.
It used to be that terrycloth robes were the most common types of robe in the market, with velour showing up more often in higher-end catalogs and hotels.
But over the years, robe manufacturers have come up with many different kinds of robes, with different fabrics, styling, colors and sizing and weights. Here’s a look at five of the most popular robe varieties.
Monogramming for Innkeepers
Many of our bed-and-breakfast, country inn and upscale hotel customers provide monogrammed robes in every guest room. Innkeepers find their guests love these robes and quite often want to purchase them. Simply putting a small tag on the robe hanger can explain to the guest that if they wish to purchase the robes, new robes are available for sale at the front desk.
Some innkeepers have little shops or a few shelves behind the front desk where they show inventory of many of the monogrammed items used in the rooms. Monogramming your robes not only reminds guests where they stayed but also brings back the many fond memories they made while staying at your property.
Crests, logos and initials can be monogrammed on all bath and bedding items. All monogrammed orders must be approved before work can be completed.
We use a two-step approval process:
Even with the heat turned up; climbing out of a comfy warm bed on a chilly winter morning is the last thing anyone wants to do. One way you can keep your guests warm is by offering quality hotel bathrobes in their rooms. Adding this little touch is a sure way to keep guests happy and warm during the chilly winter months ahead.
We offer a wide variety of quality velour hotel bathrobes with terrycloth insides to better absorb water. Velour gives the bathrobe luxury, coziness, and makes the garment softer to the touch for your guests.

The lush sleeves have thick cuffs on the ends with two front pockets and elegant cording around the shawl and cuffs. This is sure to be a favorite part of any stay for your guests.
