Given the plethora of online travel reviews on hotels, airlines, and so many other travel topics, why bother with yet another site? Because, at long last, we have found a website that critiques the single most important aspect of a hotel.
This hotel amenity varies greatly between hotels. Sometimes it’s perfect: classy, stylish, and functional. At other times you may shrug as you look at it and think “well, at least it works…or does it?” This item, the humble hotel pen, can make or break an otherwise excellent hotel stay.
Finally, a tumblr to help us navigate this important world of hotel pens: Hotel Pens. This blog gives us reviews of many hotel pens. Whether plain yet functional, cheap, or exciting and thoughtful, the pen is always the focus.
Is there a point to this site beyond seeing which hotels have better pens? The writer tells us, “Sometimes the style & quality of the pen is a reflection of the hotel it came from.” This theory seems to hold true, at least for the pen from the W San Diego Hotel. In a hotel known for being unique, the pen “is one of the coolest and most unique pens… Square instead of round, but with a grippy, rubber-like coating that makes it easy to hold and easy to use.” In that case, it is well worth our time to know which hotels have pens that are simply outstanding. After all, isn’t an excellent hotel pen what you look forward to the most when you travel?
