With all the TSA regulations , it gets tricky to have travel size toiletries/cosmetics all the time .
For regular business travelers , it may not be a big deal .

But I am sure a small toothpaste tube in each bathroom will not drive up costs THAT much .

In any case, they recover it from the 20 % room service tax

I've gotten toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand lotion, a razor, a comb, feminine sanitary items, mini-sewing kits and even nail polish remover pads and a nail file from the front desk at hotels. I never buy those travel sizes of toothpaste. I check in and when they hand me my key, I ask for toothpaste, I don't think I've ever not gotten it.

I always wonder WHY ???

Why? Because in the class of hotel you stay in .... they don't provide toothpaste. I've stayed in expensive places which do. Infrequently, though.

Some hotels do provide toothpaste in the rooms, e.g. the San Francisco Hyatt Regency, where I stayed recently.

And ironically I just stayed in a Hyatt in another major city--no toothpaste.

Like I said, almost all hotels (other than real rat holes) will provide toothpaste at the front desk on request.
