As you all know, I was in Vegas last week and I stayed at the Palazzo, which is now a part of the Intercontinental Hotels Group. As an Intercontinental Royal Ambassador, I get free minibar at any IHG hotel and the one at the Palazzo was the most impressive I’ve seen.

I did a quick video for HotelChatter.com asking whether it was ethical for me to completely empty out the fridge – especially since I had friends coming over.

What are your thoughts? Is it unethical to take that benefit to the limit or is it completely okay because I’m technically staying within the rules of the program?

If you were a Royal Ambassador, would you clear out the minibar?
