What! No more La Source at Hilton?Back to Forum
Anonymous29 Jan 2012
Has anyone else noticed that Hilton have dumped Crabtree & Evelyn’s La Source bathroom soaps etc for Peter Thomas Roth? Who?
What a shame, clearly a cost saving measure, but some how devalues the product in not having a well known brand.29 Jan 2012
Am postulating here, but could the change be due to the fact that when Crabtree & Evelyn came out of C11 a year ago it was purchased by a Malaysian palm oil company.
Decisions to alter key suppliers are often taken a year plus in advance of agreement renewal. As C&E may have been deemed vulnerable at the time, Hilton may have elected a more secure, up and coming, US supplier.29 Jan 2012
Nigel – yes, I also noticed this.
However, I prefer the PTR ones.
IMHO the best in the UK are those provided by Hotels du Vin. At a recent stay at the Royal Tunbridge Wells establishment (where else, old boy!) I noticed that HdV are now making them available for sale at reception, in case the ones you take home from the room aren’t sufficient.

Cheers Guys, Didn’t know Crabtree & Evelyn had been in Chapter 11, so the change would make sense, although C&E are still trading here in the UK.
Scenic Hotels in New Zealand also sell their smellies as they are an organic range.29 Jan 2012
Good job they are toiletries by Peter Thomas Roth and not Dave Lee Roth….
His would make you “jump,” and perhaps a little too “hot for teacher,” Or perhaps even bring you out in an “eruption.”
An appropriate place to trial his products would be the Panama Hilton.

I am picturing you lot all sat around the pub table at the next BT Forum poster’s drink passing around shampoos, “ooh, try this one… is it pomegranate?”
