Suuuuure, that spoon and matching knife and fork set just happened to fall in to your bag…twice.
Most hotels have started providing cheaply made or throw-away slippers because so many were stolen!
Mini Bar Products
As I’m sure you can imagine, there are some crafty guests out there! Finding your way around not paying for mini bar booze or chocolate is like a mission the hotel has set you and you must accept this mission! Not removing the bottles and somehow drinking that miniature vodka with a straw seems like a great way to complete that challenge. These hotels have your credit card details by the way…
Linen and Curtains
Curtains? Really! Who goes in to a hotel with a bag big and empty enough to steal a set of curtains? Darling we need a new bed spread, best book a night away!
We can totally accept that the rare few accidentally mix their own towels up with hotel towels after a long stay away. But when the hotel provides own branded luxurious white fluffy clouds to dry yourself with and they mysteriously disappear… What are they supposed to make their fantastic towel art from now?
Another one that the hotels have definitely copped on to. A lot of hotels will have non removable hangers that are stuck in and run along a rail.
Tea, Coffee and UHT Milk
I’m sure you have nicer milk at home in the fridge. Deny it all you want sir but that bin is suspiciously empty, unless you also drank the packaging too?
Light Bulbs and Batteries
Something you just don’t want to buy in the local shop. Oh the worries of spending a fiver on some batteries for the remote control. They’ve only been wasting for 6 months. Getting up to switch the TV is proving too much effort. Must book a night away and add batteries to the list with the bed linen. I’ll repeat again… these guys have your credit card on file.
Ok so these more than likely were stolen from the front door by your drunk hotel neighbour for a laugh so you would indeed be disturbed. But they cost money to be made and printed, it’s still theft!
Everything From The Bathroom
Shower gel, shampoo, soap, shower caps, the hair dryer that you somehow detached from the wall. Some hotels have started putting grooming products in bigger dispensers that are stuck to walls/sinks. Other hotels purposely write in a welcome note that the toiletries are up for grabs.
Just don’t have a Ross Gellar moment and burst your suitcase in the reception.
