YOU'VE JUST GOT TO BE KIDDING: Hotels Are Fair Game

from Yahoo Travel

The American Hotel & Lodging Association estimates that theft costs hotels $100 million a year. Most of the stolen items don't carry a big ticket; unused soaps and hair-care products and ballpoint pens, for example. But some folks are more industrious. Their swag includes light bulbs taken from lamps, batteries removed from remotes, room-service bud vases and salt and pepper shakers, cutlery, towels, and DO NOT DISTURB and other signs. Pillows are popular, too; they can cost $80 each. Now, however, hoteliers are ordering linens with implanted trackable microchips. All of which is ho-hum compared to some of the more audacious thefts reported; e.g., a $300,000 Andy Warhol lithograph; a 12-foot model of a Concorde SST (how do you swipe one of those?); a complete suit of armor (try wearing that on your way out of a Red Roof Inn); a grand piano; and, from a hotel in Berlin, taps, toilet seats, and — yes — a sink. more
