As guests at the Culver City Sheraton Four Points exit the elevators in the hotel lobby, they are greeted with a vending machine. Not so unusual on the face of it. It's a plastic contraption resembling a standard vending machine, but this one carries no candy, chips or even Cokes. On one side, the machine stocks an array of items often forgotten by travelers: Disposable cameras, socks, nasal spray and other sundries line up behind black wire coils.
