Sorry to hijack your post christianautumn! Remember, if you do bring chocolates for the housekeeping staff, which they enjoy, be a "responsible tourist" and wrap your chocolates so they don't melt on your clothes or draw bugs. LOL.
On a serious side note, when people complain about ants in the bathrooms at CN, it's all too often, because they leave a sugary drink sitting on the sink, especially one that has had some of the beverage on the side of the glass. (e.g. Miami Vice, Hummingbird, Pina Colada, etc.) Believe it or not, they attract bugs just like anywhere else in the world. The same goes for candy. If you do bring candy for the staff, we always find the best place to store it is on the shelf next to the mini-fridge by the wine bottles in a Ziploc bag and have had no problems. When we leave the treats out for the staff, we set them on the counter below the TV with a nice little note to show our appreciation. I would highly recommend against leaving anything food items on the bathroom counter. Just a tip to avoid any hassles!
