Only 20k? Bankers steal more than that.

Shouldn't leave stuff in there, or outside of the safe. That said that hotel needs to reimburse them.

How do you rack up 20k stealing a combination of what, 2 beds, a TV, a dresser or two, and a 32" or so TV?

I don't think they stole too much of the furniture.

Two women visiting from Brazil later returned to the room and found $1,800 in cash, $10,000 in jewelry, an iPad, credit cards, IDs, and suitcase missing.

Idiots. Leave that shiat at home. Or at least use the damn safe just about every hotel room has.

haha, true. but this was one well-planned unit. That being said, it'd be funny to see someone trying to fence a mixture of the exact same bed, the exact same AC wall unit, the exact same TVs..

//and apparently 10k worth of some brazilian women's jewelry..

Does this kind of life look interesting to you? Night after night, dinners with Herb Cohen. Thrill-packed, fun-filled evenings on the French Riviera at the MIDEM convention. A fake tie, the whole bit. Watch Mutt eat, and Leon feed the geese. One thousand green business cards, with your name and the wrong address. Plus six royalty statements, inspected and customized by ran toon tan han toon frammet and dee. Followed by twelve potential suicides as the members of your group, past and present, find out they can't collect unemployment. A dog, a car, an epidemic of body lice with your own record company, your name on the door, electric buzzer to the inner office, and Ona's tits, and a three month supply of German bookings with tickets on Air Rangoon. Does this kind of life look interesting to you? As a fake rock and roll guitar player in a comedy group?

Speaking  of mini-bar gouging, now some places are charging a restocking fee on top of the exorbitant fees for using anything in it.

Well-played, Subby.


I can't remember if it was an article or a comment on a thread, but I remember someone talking about working in a hotel (or motel) and people stealing stuff, not just towels and robes, but bed spreads, paintings, the tv, and in one case trying to get the furniture from the motel room to a pickup truck.


The weird thing is that a lot of people don't consider taking stuff like the towels or ashtrays as stealing.

/wouldn't want any visitors to my house taking such liberties

20k worth of items she claims was in there. Realistically the worth was probably much lower.

She's probably hoping to get more than the items were actually worth.

Otherwise she probably would have used the safe.

or

It's all legit and the cleaner is in on it. Considering the fact that he just HAPPENED to pick the best room to rob?

I've been in hotels recently where, if you just lift an item out of its spot  for 5-10 seconds the sensors detect it and you get charged, even if you put it back without opening it.

Back close to thirty years ago, when I was a claims adjuster for Crawford & Company, an independent claims adjusting company,  one of our clients was Hyatt.

I had several claims where guests at the local Hyatt claimed to have jewelry, cash, etc. stolen from their rooms.  I'd do a full investigation and, if there was no real evidence of fraud, offer a settlement.  $50.

You see, the Iowa Code at that time limited recovery of theft of goods from rooms to that amount.  the law was written in 1911 or thereabouts.  There was a fine print placard mounted on the inside of each room's door spelling that out and warning customers that anything of value above that was only covered if deposited in the front desk safe.

Claimants would go apeshiat and scream lawsuit and hang up.  Then they'd call a lawyer and find out that was, in fact the law.  Yeah, it was unfair, but amusing.

Wow. Seriously though, why should a hotel have to pay for that kind of claim? Valuable jewelry should be insured against theft by the owner anyway. Someone had to establish that the stuff existed in the first place to be stolen. Lost cash? Oh yes, there was $80 - I mean $800 - of it - GONE! Please.

Hotel's expect you to take a few things.  They're souvenirs.
