Hotels.com did a study recently and found that 35% of guests pocket hotel room amenities other than the aforementioned toiletries. Magazines, linens, clocks, lamps, and artwork all made the list, and we're sure the hair dryer has gone missing on more than one occasion.
The study also reveals what the rate of theft and leading item stolen are based on the individual country. The U.S.? Linens and towels are being tucked into suitcases. In China, it’s furnishings, such as lamps and artwork (seriously, how do you steal a lamp?!). In most other countries, magazines and books are what's flying off the shelves.
In the States, 66% of people said they have never stolen anything from a hotel room. Denmark is the most honest country with 88% of its people claiming they’ve never stolen anything, while only 43% of people in Colombia could say the same thing. See the entire rankings here.
So, come clean! What have you stolen from a hotel room? And for the industry folks, what do you see guests making off with most often?
