The Secret World of Hotel Theft - Condé Nast Traveler
Wow! We always push room door when we go out to check that it's secure, often leave the TV on, usually hide electronics out of sight, always place "Do not disturb" door hanger, never use an in-room safe and very infrequently have maid service during our stays. We have not experienced theft - nor, in 20 years, have left anything behind when checking out. C
I had one experience, long ago, in a European nation, where my room was entered and clandestine listening devices placed to check on me. It was not a Marriott brand, and I trust Marriott to prevent this kind of thing from happening. I found them, after some quick searches, and left them alone. No use angering the listeners, that was my motto.
I'd be interested in finding out which nation that was. Probably one behind the Iron Curtain. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post it here.
You likely are not surprised that this happens in countries still today. Surprising to an outsider, but the more you travel to far flung destinations, you realize your view of normal isn't quite the same as the locals. Not that it comes with a bad perception per se, but in this case it does.
