    So while checking out reviews for Conrads I see/read a common theme. This Conrad Bear that the hotel 1) Gives out? 2) Sells? 3) huh I dont know?

    Is it common that the hotel gives out the bears? Is it to everyone? Diamonds? Golds?

    I'm staying 3N in SIN & then 1N in Seoul in November. Now I just found out I might need a night in Chicago ... so will this trip net me 3 Bears?

    The little stuffed animals are free. You will get one for each property where you stay and it may not always be a bear. Conrad HKG gives out bears and I got 4 of them for staying 4 times within 1 month. On the other hand, I got an elephant at Conrad BKK. What I am not sure about, since I am a Diamond, is whether or not they give them out to lower tier elites.

    I got elephant at Conrad Bangkok, bear at Conrads Hong Kong and Singapore (although slightly different ones, with Singaporean one dresses as Santa - I was staying there at X-mas) and strange little silver bear at Conrad Macao. They have turtles at Conrad Koh Samui, pandas at Conrad Beijing and monekys at Conrad Bali, but all those I still havent got. Not all Conrads have plush toys. Availability is free in executive rooms and for elites that have access to executive flloors, as far as I have noticed so far.

    Seems like an Asian Conrad thing then? Nothing for Chicago or NY I'm assuming

    NY should have some plush toy (bull), I have even seen reports for Conrad Chicago (bear)... for there is no consistency...

    We got a Bear in Singapore (actually three as they gave us a bride and groom bear for our anniversary along with the original bear). We got a Monkey in Bali.

    Make sure they know it is your honeymoon. We were upgraded to a very nice suite, although my diamond status probably helped.

    I've always gotten them in my room. Except, of course, in Thailand where I got an elephant (as that's their animal).

    To post up thread, hopefully this covers all locations

    US:
    I am not sure if Indianapolis or Chicago has a bear, at least it is not a standard give away, maybe that recently changed but I haven't seen any. New York has "Hudson" The Bull - there was a strong campaign on facebook last year for them to get one, and they did! Miami has a manatee, but you need to ask for it, not a standard give away. Puerto Rico, never been there, but haven't heard of any bears/toys there.

    Asia:
    Every Conrad has a toy, be it a bear, a turtle/sea animal, a monkey or an elephant. I think Maldives has 7 total animals, so if you stay for a week, you can collect all of them. Conrad Tokyo changes their bears, this year they have 8 new bears to celebrate 30 year anniversary, and they have Crowned Duck bath toy to boot. HKG had a bear in a hard hat when they did construction a few years ago. New Beijing Conrad has giant panda bears (two-three times larger than regular Conrad toy) in different shirts. So you should visit Conrads in Asia frequently, and collect them all!

    Europe:
    Dublin had Christmas themed bears, you can still get them if you ask for them, some reports of a new bear coming soon. Belgium (when it was a Conrad) had a black droopy looking bear as well. Istanbul has a bear, but it is not free, only for sale. Not sure about Portugal.

    Africa/Middle East/South America:
    I haven't heard of any toys in Egypt or new Dubai place, feel free to add any information. No reports of any bears or toys in Uruguay, please correct me if I am wrong.

    You can probably tell I collect these silly bears/toys, this frequent flyer mile hobby yields weird byproduct hobbies, i.e. Conrad Toys!

    Cheers,

    PedroNY

    I don't know about the one in South Africa, haven't been. As for Sanya, I haven't been either, but I imagine they have a toy as every other Conrad in Asia has a toy to give out, so I would be surprised otherwise.

    Well crap I didn't get one, I think I'll email them and see if they would send one. I got a room with a 1/4million dollars worth of art but no animal lol

    I will be in both Conrad Koh Samui and Conrad Bangkok very soon... is there difference between turtles in CKS or between elephants in CBKK? Some colours more rare than others?

    Tiny but cuddly...:)
    The small ones were just right for me because I pack my luggage so tightly that I would have had a hard time bringing back the 4 bears from Conrad HKG and the elephant from Conrad BKK that I got on my last Asian trip if they were any bigger.;)

    Got an email responce from Conrad Indy. Basically they said it used to be a brand standard that was discontinued a few years ago, and as far as this guy knew no North American Conrad participates right now.
