Have you ever checked into a hotel room, maybe with your baby or kids only to find that the only fridge in the room is full with over-priced mini bar drinks? Honestly, the only time I’ve ever been excited to see this sight when I opened the fridge in my hotel room was when I had InterContinental Ambassador Status (and the mini bar was complementary.) When I travel with the kids, I really need an empty fridge to put their drinks, bottles and snacks in.
Mini Bar Dilemma
On a recent hotel stay-cation, we brought some kid drinks, as well as some adult beverages with us only to find ourselves in this situation. We had no place to put our drinks. Of course we could have asked for a second fridge to be brought up, but with a family of 4 plus gear in a standard room, it really didn’t make sense for space reasons. So, we found our own solution.
Is it a piece of luggage, a purse? Nope! It’s a cooler bag! We had brought this bag with us with kid drinks in it and found that it was perfect to use in our hotel room. We just went to the ice machine and filled that baby up!
This Lilly Cooler bag definitely held a lot more than the ice bucket would have!
