According to Daily Mail, the campaign, which lasts through the end of the summer, is being called an "amnesty period," meaning stolen items can be returned with no questions asked. And apparently, there's a lot to be accounted for. Spoons, bath robes, room keys, and even wall fixtures have all gone missing over the years, ending up as take-home souvenirs from the iconic hotel.
But are guests likely to take the time to wrap up, write a note and return the items they once swiped from the hotel? Heck, do they still even have of the items?
Not that we're making any admissions here, but supposing—just supposing!—we had stolen something from our hotel room (a pair of slippers, say). Are we really about to part ways with said hypothetical slippers in the name of expanding some dinky diorama in the hotel lobby? We'll just have to wait and see how this one plays out.
