Waldorf Astoria Hotels Announces New Partnership With Aesop for Rejuvenating In-Room Guest Experience

Leading Sustainable Lifestyle Brand Debuts Products Across Renowned Global Portfolio

USA, Mclean, Virginia. August 23, 2022

Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts announced today a partnership with skin care brand Aesop, known for formulating products of the finest quality for the skin, body and hair, as well as fragrance and accessories for self and space. Select favored formulations, available in signature Aesop aromas, will now be the in-room toiletries for Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts worldwide. This collaboration marks the first and only global hospitality brand with which Aesop has partnered to provide its product at this scale.

"This new partnership is an exciting moment for our luxury portfolio and represents Waldorf Astoria's and Hilton's ongoing commitment to offering exceptional amenities to loyal guests. As we reinvigorate our amenities around the world, aligning with Aesop's global recognition and reputation as an industry leader is a testament to the product quality, appealing aromas, and intuitive customer experience it has shown over the years," said Dino Michael, senior vice president and global luxury head, Hilton.

The partnership marks the conscious shift from travel-size toiletries for the Waldorf Astoria brand as part of Hilton's ongoing commitment to reduce its environmental impact. As part of this collaboration with Aesop, Waldorf Astoria properties around the world will offer full size in-room toiletries in 500mL formats made from 97 percent post-consumer recycled plastic. Since its inception, Aesop has sought to tread lightly on the environment and continues to make a conscious effort to improve its packaging. An intentional choice, the products will be the same high-quality formulations that are available to consumers at Aesop's unique retail stores globally and will include Classic Hair Shampoo and Conditioner, Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash, Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser and Rind Concentrate Body Balm.

The Aesop amenities will be a part of the expansive growth of the Waldorf Astoria brand and will be placed in new hotels as well as in existing landmark properties in Versailles, Maldives, Edinburgh, Las Vegas, and Amsterdam over the next year. The instantly recognizable packaging and inspiring scents give Waldorf Astoria's international guests even more reason to enjoy the in-room stay experience.

Suzanne Santos, chief customer officer, Aesop, said, "The launch of Waldorf Astoria and Aesop's partnership centers on a belief that uncompromising decisions are made in the name of customers, as we continue to prioritize opportunities to offer sustainable and clean products to guests."

Aiming to create products that optimise and support the skin's health, Aesop's focus has always been on the contents of the jar. Driven by an uncomplicated approach, the idea is to launch fewer but better products, ignoring industry trends to instead focus on creating timeless formulations that serve a genuine purpose. To formulate products of the finest quality, the company investigates widely to source ingredients with a proven record of safety and efficacy. Its approach relies on generous doses of botanical extracts and laboratory-made ingredients alike, combining the best of what plants and science each have to offer.

Hotel Revenue Management: Every Square Foot Matters


Traditionally, hotels have employed a room-centric revenue model. The primary focus was on pricing strategies that could generate the most revenue from the sale of rooms. However, the pandemic has forced hoteliers to look beyond room revenue exclusively, and to maximize all available revenue streams. How is this accomplished? By re-imagining the use and function of every square foot of a hotel property, and how revenue is generated from it. For example, some hotels are rethinking their spaces for different uses - offering rooms for private day meetings, or offering suites for private dinners. Other hotels with meeting spaces are moving beyond daytime conferences and events, and figuring out how to book those spaces in the evenings, on holidays and weekends, for such things as exhibitions, workshops, rehearsals and pop-ups. Still other hotels are leasing work spaces or parking spaces to businesses in their local market. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on how some leading hotels are re-inventing their revenue management strategies.
