Watch What You Leave in Your Hotel Room
I bet after watching this video you won’t be leaving your valuables out in your hotel rooms any more. Although the maid in the video didn’t actually steal anything, the way she goes through the guest’s bag and handles his computer and tablet is totally uncool.
If I’m staying at a hotel for just a couple of days, I leave the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door and refuse service. If I need my room cleaned or the bed made (though that’s very rare), I usually stay in the room while they do it. I also tip the maids well and usually in person. If I do go out, I almost always leave the valuables locked up in the safe—and even then, it’s usually easy for workers to crack.
Play it safe, and at the very least be conscious of what you leave out in your hotel room.
