Make sure you use your room safe. Very long story short: I brought my sister and nephew to Vegas on my dime for a special family trip. We stayed at a five star hotel (i won't name it). One day My nephew and I went down to the pool early. My sister called and said she was on the way down. She left her room, realized she didn't want to bring a piece of jewelry she was wearing and went back into the room, slipping it in a side pouch in her makeup bag under the sink. She went down to the pool to join us. An hour later, she came back up and her jewelry was gone. We contacted security (I'm leaving out a lot of details about our experiences with security) and they found, using a system that shows every time a hotel room has a key put in the door, that within 20 minutes of my sister leaving her room, housekeeping came in, then left. My sister returned to the room about 15 minutes after housekeeping. So within an hour, hotel security showed housekeeping was the only person to go into the room. We were informed theylocated and interviewed the housekeeping staff person and searched her car, finding nothing. I told them a polygraph would most likely do wonders in ferreting out the truth. They said they don't give employees polygraphs And just so you also know, %98 of hotels only have security cameras on the casino floor. I personally spoke with several high up supervisors during my stay, which was months ago. I ended up spending a couple of days of my vacation speaking to supervisors and getting transportation to the police station to make a report. I had to follow up upon getting home with a detective. Really colored my vacation. I understand the hotel has to wait for the police investigation to be complete before they can even think about settling, but I was amazed they haven't/didn't thrown something my way. How about you comp my room for the visit, siince it's pretty obvious your staff preson stole something from my sister's room? How about about you send me a comp for a future visit, regardless of whether or not you compensate my sister's loss through insurance. (Will they? I dunno.) Although their security, once I got to the upper levels, was extremely courteous and thorough, I couldn't believe the hotel's only reponse was basically, a repeated, "We're so sorry this happened to you." So, bottom line, make sure you always put your valuables in your safe. I had a couple of security staff descretely tell me thefts from rooms happen all the time. They just don't talk about them. So lock up those tablets and jewelry. Anything of value you can put in the safe, do so. From my inderstanding, the thefts that occurred are stuff that was out and available. What is amazing to me is my sister was only out of the rooom for an hour and only one person entered the room in that time frame, yet, to date, I have received zero compensation from the hotel. Pretty amazing, since it's obviously thier fault.
