Four outrageous New York City hotel minibar rip-offs
We’ve seen enough $150 candles and $4 tins of Altoids to know better than to expect a bargain from a hotel minibar. But sometimes the price gouging gets absolutely scandalous—like at these four New York hotels that have mastered the art of the overcharge.
The Hotel: Mansfield Hotel The Rip-off: $10 bottle of water
The Hotel: W New York - The Tuscany The Rip-off: $12 toothpaste kit
About 14 times what we usually spend on candy
The Hotel: Omni Berkshire Place The Rip-off: $14 gummy bears
The Hotel: Gild Hall The Rip-off: $195 "Travel Couples Pleasure Kit," including a vibrator, handcuffs, condoms and lube
