As you know we have 5 kids. Which means we have a lot of kitchen needs. Buying a ton of plates from major retailers gets really expensive really fast, especially when you factor in how often things break (we cannot get through a meal with out something happening).
Somewhere along the line someone suggested shopping at hotel supplier for some basics. I found PeachSuite Hotel Supply as a great option for things we need all too often at great prices with an easy to use interface.
One of the best things about buying hotel supplies online is not taking 5 kids out of the house into place with lots of things that could get broken- it would be like taking 5 small bulls to a proverbial china shop. That would not end well.
While I have not used it specifically as a hotel amenities supplier I have to say that I would expect nothing less than great service and help from them.
