Over at the Five-Diamond Pan Pacific Vancouver, they’re offering what might be called “a breath of fresh air.” The perk is portable oxygen canisters for quick pick-me-ups.

“Travel is so exhausting today that people who are traveling from one meeting to another often take them along. From comments we had, our guests love the amenity,” says Steve Halliday, president, Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts North America.

The oxygen containers that cost $15.95 are far from alone, however, in the breath-taking and innovative amenities being offered by hotels these days.

“This falls under the innovative and creative category. We all say we provide outstanding service. That’s all very well and good, but we also want our guests to remember the thoughtful touches and think of them when they leave,” Halliday says.

Many of the old-time hotel perks such as flat screens, coffee-makers and in-room safes are old hat by now. So hoteliers are looking at finding new and enticing extra services that are generally offered at no extra cost.
