Please put the towels back

And if you’ve taken anything else from your hotel room, there are a few people who would like to talk with you. Apparently 22% of respondents to a survey from TripAdvisor admitted to stealing things from a hotel room (guilty here), and some of the hotels have started trying to recover them. Most of the recovery is coming from the historical properties, like the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego and the Mayflower in Washington, DC, though Holiday Inn did a bit of PR looking for towels and any funny stories that might accompany them.

So if you’re the guy who took the two 1920s banquet chairs from the Mayflower, you might be saddened to learn that they’ve been returned, but I want to know how you did it.
