I was reading an article about a couple that stayed at a 5 star hotel and were arrested for stealing pretty much everything in their room, to include the TV.

Seriously, who steals a TV out of a hotel room? A nice hotel at that?.

I have heard about people taking the toiletries and maybe even the robes and towels but never sheets, lamps and TV's.

Be honest, have you ever taken anything from a hotel room before? Do you know anyone who has?

Do you think it is expected to take toiletries?

They did a skit like that in the SpongeBob episode "Kracked Krabs." They passed this theft off as "exaggeration."

My neighbor travels a lot and she loves the hotel toiletries. She will use the ones available the first day, then put them in her case so they refresh with new ones everyday. She takes all the unopened ones and continues to use the opened ones while she is there.

i will take the soaps n shampoos but never towels or robes (thry just charge ur CC for them anyway) i worked for a nice upscale hotel for short time just out of highschool. their personal policy was to replace soaps shampoos lotions every day regardless if they had been opened.

Honestly I haven't but SIL has, usually towels & says the Hotel "expects" it. My BIL gets mad at her & makes her put them back.
