When booking a trip, most travelers research the perks and bonuses that come along with their hotel stay. Some hotels have amenities that even seasoned travelers wouldn’t know about unless they have experience them first hand. The bonuses range in type from one-of-a-kind experiences to amazing take home goodies which often reflect the local culture in a unique way. Think of bee keeping, tea parties, theatrical performances and Swedish après ski bar.

Some hotels have really gone out of their way to create an exclusive experience for their guests. Here is a list of a few hotel amenities you’ve probably never heard of!

Hilton Whistler

Whistler’s most famous and chaotic après scene is an indoor/outdoor bash every Tuesday at the Cinnamon Bear! Known for its banding music featuring DJs and Bands, often imported from Sweden, costumes, Swedish meatballs, drink specials and general silliness. Be advised, this après is popular and 2-hour line ups are not uncommon.

Hilton Toronto

Experience the sophistication of Level Two when you book your stay at this hotel. This second story rooftop terrace gives you a sense of being in the city rather than above it.

Relax and take a load off at the pool or lounge around in the cabanas.

Hilton Garden Inn Ottawa Airport

So, if you’re in the mood for something sweet, head to the lobby and purchase some of their honey. Local, healthy, unpasteurized deliciousness is waiting for you.
