    A man staying with his girlfriend at the Woodlands Resort in Houston may have forgotten about the silly request he made when booking, but the hotel didn't. In the "Comments or Special Request" field, Dustin Wray asked for three single M&Ms ("One for me, one for my girlfriend, and one to split if we get hungry late at night") and a picture of bacon set on the bed.

    He added: "I love pictures of bacon."

    A month went by. The couple forgot about the request.

    "I was quite confused when I walked in and saw three single red M&Ms," wrote Wray, whose girlfriend started laughing at a framed picture of bacon on the bed. Things clicked, and Wray soon found himself posting to Imgur.com (below) and Reddit.

    More people have stepped forward on Reddit to share tales of hotels going above and beyond, including one person who asked for (and received) a picture of a dinosaur on a pizza box. Last year, we posted about the Fairmont Winnipeg fulfilling a request for "a pre-made pillow fort and Vanilla Coke."

    This is boss. :) Creative way to get some free marketing for the hotel when things go right... and a good culture in terms of customer appreciation.

    My strange request, fulfilled? A loan of some chef's pants for a night.
