Towels in a hotel are usually folded or arranged to reflect sophistication. Some hotels even fold their towels into fancy shapes that resemble flowers or animals. Always wash your towels with fabric softener so they are easier to mould when coming out of the dryer. You can also use several different sized towels to create a layered look.

Stones or Candles

Some hotels like to decorate their towels with stones or candles. Simply fold a large towel and then place a smaller folded towel on top. Place three or four stones or candles directly on top of the smaller towel.

Layered Look

The layered look is one of the most common ways to display towels. You simply fold the towels in a square shape and hang them on a towel rack. Then fold a smaller towel in the same shape and hang that towel directly over the larger towel.


Rolled towels are easy to fold. Simply roll the towels tightly as if you are rolling up a piece of paper, and line them in a row.

Stacked Pyramid

A stacked pyramid is similar to rolled towels, but with a looser look. Fold the towels in a loose roll. Place three towels on the bottom in a row. Then place two towels directly on top of those towels. Lastly, place one more folded towel on top to complete the pyramid. You can also put flowers or rocks on the top to complete the look.

Wrapped in Ribbon with Flowers

Some hotels use accessories to display their towels. Fold your towels in a traditional square shape and then tie ribbon around the towel as if you are wrapping a present. Place lavender or other flowers on top to complete the look.

Neatly Folded Stacks

Many hotels fold their towels in simple, neatly folded stacks. Fold your towels in square shapes and pay attention to the corners. The towels should look neat and tidy.

Flower Shaped

Flower shaped towels are also popular in some hotels. To create a flower shape, lay your towel in a large square, and then fold each corner in half, bringing the tip of the corner toward the centre of the towel. Push the middle section up from under the towel, and place a towel ring around the middle to set the towel in place.
