baathroom baskets

I was going to do these, but the one and only thing that i dont like about my venue is the bathroom is in the lobby of the hotel out by the bar resturant and elevators, so it would not be just my guests using these. So my question is, is it rude if i dont do these, i really dont think i can afford to supply all the hotels guests.

  • They're totally unnecessary.  It's not rude at all to skip them.  In fact, in your case, it wouldn't make any sense for you to do them at all.

  • Ditto dani. We didn't do them at all either. It was a complete waste of money IMO.
  • It's nice touch but necessary.  We had one but our venue layout was completely different. For your venue it does not seem to make much sense.

    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated. 
  • Nope, I didn't do them.  They just seem like a waste of time/money to me.  No one ever really uses them anyway.
  • We had the same scenario, and the hotel staff actually encouraged us to skip them because they couldn't guarantee that the hotel guests wouldn't be using them.  We didn't really have it in the budget to do them, so we skipped them.

  • It is a nice touch if your using a private facility, but since yours is utilizing a public restroom, I would definitely not worry about it.

  • I did not do them. No one asked for them. They are SO unnecessary. We didn't do favors, either, and I think those are more common than bathroom baskets.

  • I did them, and in retrospect, they were totally unnecessary.  The woman's one was barely touched, and the men's one was raided early in the evening by some guest(s) who only left the deodorant behind.  I'm not sure that any guest's comfort would have changed had I not done the bathroom baskets, but that would have been an hour I could have back in my life along with some cash.
  • thanks ladies, i think im just gonna skip them i, i just didnt want to come off as a "bad host"  :0)

  • Our guests will really be the only ones using our restroom and we are not doing them. The restrooms are already very nice and furnished normally with some lotions, etc., so I found them an unnecessary waste of money for us personally.

  • The venue, a country club, had all that crap in the bathrooms to start out with so all we did was put some flowers there.

    IMO, all that's really necessary is a large bottle of asprin, late in the evening ;)
