Bringing your own kettle

Staying at the Golden Nugget in June and many reviews have commented on their disappointment at not having coffee making facilities in their room , could I just bring my own coffee and kettle to remedy this ?

Bring a travel kettle but make sure it has the ability to switch between voltage outputs! (Most do automatically) I'll warn you that it takes ages to boil on 110v

Yes. Or you could just open your mind to things being slightly different when you travel and just go with the flow. There is room service and plenty of places to get coffee or a spot of tea.

Less, a lack of coffee pots, and kettles, are common complaints.

So are a lack of rice cookers, and toaster ovens.

Some folk even make grilled cheese sandwiches with the iron.

Best of luck,

Good luck. Many just run down to lobby and buy a cup of coffee. Be sure to declare coffee. Should be no issue, but never know, just declare and no issues.

Coffee is checked by Customs. I even see small hole taped up when I bring coffee in.

can’t understand the whole need for a coffee pot in ones room. Hotels should charge for this convenience . Though I also wonder how often the pot is cleaned or de scaled ...

Actually some people like a coffee or a cup of tea first thing, especially us Brits because of the time difference.

Its easy enough for us to just bring a kettle, and tbh this nasty sarcasm is why so many people don’t visit this forum nowadays!

Yes, there is room service, yes there is also coffee downstairs in Starbucks etc.

But a little usa kettle, English teabags or Coffee, happy days :)

Don’t be mean, this forum is for advice, be kind :)
