Six Beautiful Hotel Shops (And The Souvenirs To Buy In Them)

We've rounded up some of the most beautiful hotel shops and the souvenirs you've got to buy in them - you'll want to bring a large bag...

Once an uninspired lobby fixture, the hotel shop is now as prized a destination as the buildings that house them. These are six of the best stores burning holes in our pockets, along with our edit of the souvenirs that you should be buying now.

Il Pellicano


Curated by hotelier Marie-Louise Sciò, the boutique at Il Pellicano is not your standard hotel shop. Pick up bespoke Birkenstocks, branded totes and baseball caps designed by APC Paris as momentos of this seaside retreat adored by photographer Slim Aarons.


South Africa

Gardening enthusiasts and olive oil connoisseurs should make the pilgrimage to Franschhoek for a stay at Babylonstoren. Before departing, head to the farm shop to load up on cookbooks, linens and charcuterie to continue living out a bucolic existence back home.

Le Sirenuse


Emporio Sirenuse is as prodigious as its name suggests. A trove of kaftans and cushions, this unisex store (located across the road from Le Sirenuse hotel) should be entered at your wallet's peril. Scan its range of homeware and lifestyle items - and keep an eye out for collaborations with artists and designers including Luke Edward Hall and Allegra Hicks.

Ace Hotel


From Palm Springs to Pittsburgh, the Ace Hotel brand undoubtedly kicked off the trend of the "it" hotel shop. Load your trolley with luggage labels and accessories bags (like the tote that stores the hotel's hairdryer) or try on an Ace Hotel and Swim Club t-shirt for size. A duffel bag courtesy of Atelier Ace is another solid sartorial choice.

Le Pigalle


At Le Pigalle, you'll want to take more than a bit of SoPi (South Pigalle) home with you. If you're limited by your luggage, merch emblazoned with the Le Pigalle logo and love-heart shaped lollipop icon is a good starting point - that or a vintage-style ashtray with its insignia-stamped centre. Remember to pick up a packet of complimentary matches on departure too.

Soho House


Nab an iconic striped pool towel (or three) before check out so you can relive those overcrowded rooftop pool memories for weeks to come. Soho Home offers furniture, tableware, textiles and accessories inspired by - or used in - the Houses worldwide, as well as vintage pieces and limited edition art. Top of our list: Cowshed shower gel and those teddy-bear soft robes.
