    Thats in tune with my thinking. They assume that you will use so many and charge you accordingly..

    It is okay to take the toiletries they place in your room. You most certainly have paid for them, dearly as a matter of fact. The question is whom did you pay: the hotel and the toiletry producer, or just the hotel.

    Some things to keep in mind:
    • Hoteliers are not in the toiletries business. Toiletries producers are.
    • The majority of hotel guests are business travellers.
    • Business travellers, in general, have a good bit of discretionary income, thereby making them among the most appealing of customers to influence and/or expose to one's personal care products.
    • When you see a brand name other than the hotel's on the toiletries, it's quite plausible that the toiletry producer is giving the stuff to the hotel as advertising or selling it at cost + a nominal sum that may not actually result in a profit per unit sold.
    What you should not take, particularly if you stay at high end hotels/villas, are the towels, robes, blankets/throws, hangers, candles, duvet covers, etc. They won't stop you from taking them, nor will they raise a ruckus, but they may/will bill you for them and mail/email to you an updated statement if you do.

    If you are there a few nights you have to hide the bottles so that they replenish every day. Builds up the stash.

    Then why take something you don't need?

    If I open and use one, yes: it will get tossed otherwise, so no reason not to. Otherwise, no.
