    Did you verify if the actual seal has been broken or notice signs of tampering with it? I've seen many times unopened water bottles condensate, it's actually pretty normal and common. It's usually due to change in temperatures and how it's stored. Like when it's hot during the day and then cold during at night, storing water bottles in the trunk of your car all day, etc. Water can undergo a phase change when it cools, the water then vaporizes and goes to the top of the bottle. Then when it cools, it condenses and creates droplets at the top. You should be fine if the seal is intact.

    seen it, know people who do it, lol...if you grab the cap and hold the whole thing tight while turning, it usually comes off complete...drink water, refill with tap and put cap back on, now you didnt get charged $12 for a water, lol

    that picture however could be from room temperature change

    The room temperature stayed at a constant 68 degrees in my room. I picked up the bottle on the left at first b/c I noticed the condensation and thought it was unusual. I turned the bottle upside down to get rid of the condensation and then put it back on the table. The next morning the condensation had returned.

    If in doubt, I'd just call and have it replaced.

    Yes. This.

    Are you suggesting Cosmo is reusing water bottles? I'm with Geogran on this too. If I had any concerns about the seal, I would just call and have them replaced.

    How is this a big mystery? All you have to do to tell if the seal was broken is turn the cap.

    Don't forget: If you really want bottled water that has been refilled from a tap, simply buy it from the homeless guys who hawk the stuff on the walkways. And since they get their bottles from the trash, you just might even get the odd Fiji bottle, too!

    I would be more concerned if the condoms at the minibar had broken seals.

    I was at the Aria last month, just for one day. Didn't really pay attention when I checked in as I was eager to get downstairs, but the next morning when I was checking out, I just happened to notice that the water bottle on the counter was near empty.

    I just went downstairs to check out, told them that I had not drank that water but the bottle was used, and they didn't charge me. Kinda weird, though.

    I 100% agree with this. It happens in my house. Water goes on sale and I'll overbuy and keep the sealed cases on my back stairwell. In the summer those always condensate and look just like the OP's pictures.

    I can only assume the hotel room defaults to warmer when its not being occupied to conserve energy. And when you enter the room and crank up the AC this can happen. Or even the bottles being in direct sunlight during the day and cooling at night.

    Most hotels have HVAC systems that have a standard setting and a bypass setting. On the standard setting, even if you set the thermostat to an auto temperature, the system will go into a conservation mode if nobody is in the room. So the temp in your room is not constant, regardless of your thermostat setting. Typically, to enable the bypass option, a technician has to come and turn it on.

    And more on the point, this is a silly discussion. Water bottles collect condensation because of changing temperature, even if the seal is intact. That's pretty much science 101.

    Sorry, yeah, I meant the bottles of water that's on the pressure-sensitive pad. Not sure how that whole thing happened--like housekeeping didn't see that it was empty or what. Still, glad I noticed so I could tell the front desk instead of getting charged for it!
