Stealing hotel soap

Jump to last reply

I just read an article in the LA Times discussing the habits of various nationalities and what kind of items are 'stolen' from hotel rooms. My opinion is that i paid for the room and all the disposable items in it, like the soap, shampoo, lotion, toothbrush, toilet paper, etc. Those items are mine to use or take home, if i need or want to. Just like the uneaten food from the restaurant which goes into the 'doggy bag'. I did not pay for the towels, wall hangings, or large screen TV display, so i don't take those. Some folks do take those items. Frequently in Asia i can not check out until the room has been scrutinized by the staff to ensure no theft but they never check the toothbrush loss.
What is your spin on these habits and what do you feel is acceptable to remove from the hotel room and does it make any difference if you are paying top dollar for the room?
