Do not disturb.
Chocolate covered strawberries and mood lighting accompanied by smooth jazz are standard for many hotels hoping to encourage passion in their guests. But let’s be honest, those amenities are for amateurs. Couples looking for some serious kink will appreciate the creative amenities at these hotels, which offer everything from phallic furniture and intimacy kits in the mini bar to sexy video art wall displays at the press of a button.
WHERE: Berlin, Germany
This burlesque-inspired hotel seduces its guests with softly-textured headboards, shamelessly sensual color schemes (think blood red and enticing indigo), and one simple bedside switch sure to turn you on. Each of the 58 rooms at the Provocateur Berlin, a member of Design Hotels, comes with a switch that transforms a normal night into a provocative one via the “Provocateur Mode” switch which automatically dims the lights, turns on seductive music, and displays promiscuous video art on the walls.
WHERE: Brighton, England
Each of the 19 rooms at this boutique hotel is themed so guests can choose what sort of experience they would like to have, from the dark and sultry Lover’s Lair to the delightfully kitschy Dollywood, which was styled as a recreation of Dolly Parton’s country cabin. The Hotel Pelirocco offers such extras as in-room boudoir photo shoots by Phase Photography and six distinct love hampers created by luxury sex shop owner Thea Wright (we recommend the “Sexy MF” basket that includes a handmade leather paddle, a silver waterproof vibrator, a tickling feather, PVC bondage tape, an origami game, condoms, and organic lube). Popular rooms for couples include the Pin Up Parlor, the Nookii Room, the Koibito Love Room, Bettie’s Boudoir, and the Lover’s Lair that comes with a pole dancing area and a ceiling mirror above the eight-foot round bed.
WHERE: Seattle, Washington
This artsy boutique hotel offers guests access to a rare collection of artwork and even has a floor of guestrooms that come with turntables and vinyl, but there’s one amenity, in particular, in Hotel Max’s locally-influenced honor bars that peaks most couple’s interests. Alongside local chips and candies, couples can purchase the “Bunny Juice Love Kit: The Midnight Edition,” which comes with two One® condoms, an Uberlube® personal lubricant pack, a Tenga Egg male massage sleeve and two One® condoms for him, and three Uberlube® personal lubricant packs and a mini-vibrator for her
The Drake Hotel
WHERE: Toronto, Canada
The Drake Hotel has been offering kinky amenities to their guests since their first anniversary back in 2005. Guests 18 and older can order from the hotel’s Pleasure Menu (vibrators, plugs, suede floggers, condoms, blindfolds, feathers, etc.) and the “Come as You Are” naughty gift menu, which includes sexy items (sex toys, lube, bondage items, books, and of course, the famous “Clone-A-Willy Glow in the Dark Vibrating Molding Kit”).
The James New York—NoMad
WHERE: New York City, New York
Even though it’s less than a five-minute walk to get from The James New York—NoMad to the Museum of Sex, guests of this luxury hotel won’t have to leave their rooms to experience some of the museum’s most recommended products. The hotel’s partnership with the museum allows guests the chance to order a curated Museum of Sex intimacy kit that includes mints, two condoms, an ostrich feather tickler, lube, a seven-speed bullet vibrator, and a silk eye mask.
B2 Boutique Hotel
WHERE: Zurich, Switzerland
Located in a former brewery, this boutique hotel is home to one of the hottest make-out spots in all of Zurich. Deep within the old stone vaults that once stored oak casks of Hurlimann beer is where couples can now soak in giant wooden basins of thermal water. After the sun goes down, the pools are reserved for couples engaging in not-so-private private moments together throughout the different sections of the basins. The B2 Boutique Hotel’s “Just the 2 of Us” package offers free admission to the thermal pool area, but also includes access to the super romantic rooftop thermal pool where the hotel staff will gladly light candles for guests if the stars aren’t out the night of their arrival. Finish the evening in the room with free Hurlimann beer from the minibar and romantic turndown service with candles and wine for a fun night in the room after relaxing in the spa.
Grand Oasis Cancun
WHERE: Cancun, Mexico
Most all-inclusive hotels in Cancun will provide romantic turndown service for couples, but only the Grand Oasis Cancun provides a truly kinky way to wind down for the night. The resort’s onsite Kinky Night Club puts on a nightly burlesque show with sensual dances, skimpy costumes, and interactive entertainment to delight and excite all sorts of couples before they retire back to their rooms.
SLS Las Vegas
WHERE: Las Vegas, Nevada
The SLS Las Vegas hotel gives guests two options from the in-room minibars: do you want to be a “Saint” or a “Sinner”? The Saint section is filled with sensible snacks like pretzels and snack mix while the Sinner section offers more exciting treats, like an intimacy kit loaded with premium condoms, lube, and a vibrator.
WHERE: Sydney, Australia
Even the lobby of the QT Sydney hotel is a sensual experience where “Directors of Chaos” greet guests dressed in leather-clad costumes with fiery red wigs and sassy berets. The rooms are decorated with dark colors and rich textures and include a complimentary martini kit for making the hotel’s signature espresso martini. Start with a martini and head to the minibar to check out the kinky amenities, like an in-room intimacy kit that comes with condoms, lube, toilettes, and a blindfold.
WHERE: Nashville, Tennessee
This independently-owned hotel in Music City features a retro-chic aesthetic with rooms that range from playful to sexy. Some guest rooms at the Fairlane Hotel feature semi-transparent “peekaboo showers” made from Nicaraguan wood that are perfect for teasing your partner before heading to bed. Additionally, the Penthouse West bedroom offers mirrored ceilings above the bed so everyone can enjoy the show.
Moxy Chicago Downtown
WHERE: Chicago, Illinois
Chicago’s former River North warehouse district has become a hot nightlife destination with numerous nightclubs, craft cocktail bars, and sexy accommodation options, including the Moxy Chicago Downtown. The hotel’s “Do Not Disturb” package turns this minimalist-chic hotel into a hedonistic haven by offering couples two cocktails upon arrival, a spa gift, Perfect V Mist for her, massage oil, a premium “kink kit,” and a welcome amenity.
WHERE: Paris, France
Although they are nestled discreetly within Paris’ 9th arrondissement off Rue de Navarin, the furnishings within the Hotel Amour are significantly less discreet. The Large Double Rooms at this boutique hotel all feature erotic photographs on the walls with phallic furniture (i.e., a giant penis-shaped chair) to help inspire the mood.
Colony Palms Hotel
WHERE: Palm Springs, California
This 57-room resort was way ahead of the time when it first opened in 1937, and, although it may appear to be a bit on the conservative side with its Spanish colonial architecture and arched entryways, the Colony Palms Hotel continues to push the envelope even today by offering in-room luxury intimacy kits in every minibar. The kits are made by New Indulgence and come with two premium condoms, Liquid Pleasures personal lubricant, couples erotic vibrating ring, and a mini multispeed vibrator.
SIXTY Beverly Hills Hotel
WHERE: Beverly Hills, California
Everything about the SIXTY Beverly Hills Hotel is sexy, from the dimly-lit hallways and the hardwood textures in the lobby to the exclusive rooftop pool that turns into a swanky bar when the sun goes down. The beds within the guestrooms take sexy to a new level with leather and mirror paneled headboards that extend all the way up the ceiling so couples can watch themselves…snuggle.
21c Museum Hotel Oklahoma City
WHERE: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Walking into the 21c Museum Hotel Oklahoma City often feels like walking into a very modern art gallery and that’s because it is a very modern art gallery. The hotel’s on-site art gallery is just as popular as the hotel’s on-site Mary Eddys Kitchen (famous for their crispy fried rice with sous vide egg), but not much has become quite as popular as the in-room amenities at this OKC hotspot. Each of the 135 rooms comes stocked a creative minibar to prepare guests for anything that may happen while at the hotel, from late-night hunger to unplanned intimate moments. The minibars each include a premium intimacy kit that comes with a condom, lubricant, and a cleansing towelette.
