There’s always a sense of anticipation after slipping in your key card into your hotel room door. What showroom-quality furniture awaits? What plush sheets will you get to lounge on? Well here’s a little secret: Some of your favorite hotels — including major chains such as Hilton, Marriott and Kimpton — offer linens, accent tables, even mattresses up for sale so that you can enjoy the luxury at home. Just about anything in the room is up for sale (and brand new, too).
