35% of travelers steal hotel valuables

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Nearly everyone who has ever stayed at a hotel has walked away with a mini shampoo or maybe a bar of soap, but a survey from Hotels.com says 35 percent of people admit to swiping valuables like towels, lamps, robes or bedding.

Of the Americans, 66 percent say they've never stolen anything from a hotel room apart from toiletries, but those who have stolen are most likely to take linens and towels.

Danish travelers were the least likely to steal anything from a hotel room, followed by the Dutch and Norwegians -- perhaps some of that influence has carried over into Minnesota where much of the population is of Scandinavian descent. Then again, maybe those fluffy robes are simply too hard to resist.

The study surveyed 8,600 travelers from around the world.
