Tourists snatches from time to time a souvenir, once they have stayed at a good hotel, and the hotels are fully aware of it.
At the hotel Roosevelt New Orleans, Waldorf Astoria, in the UNITED states has chosen to utilize its 125. anniversary to get some things back again.
It writes Travel and Leisure.
Through the generations, this hotel has existed, we have welcomed millions and millions of guests. Often have the guests chosen to take something to remember the hotel when they leave us, tells Tod Chambers, who is the manager.
- In connection with the celebration of the hotel's 125-year anniversary, we thought it would be a good time to reach out to the millions of guests, potentially, and say that we would love to get some of these things back, he continues.

Since January, the hotel has given guests the opportunity to return the stolen items - without any penalty.
And this has evidently resulted in several stunning discoveries.
the Hotel has, among others, scored concrete statue, an antique fan, a lot of glass, cutlery, dishes and menus from different decades as far back as in the 1940's, as well as an antique barbord.
the Statue was not stolen, but purchased.
- In the course of a refuse collection period, there were concrete statues in front of the hotel. Some bought one of these statues at auction, and they sent us a picture of it this week, tells Tod Chambers.
There is one thing, however, the manager really would like to have back. And it is a door. A door from the hotel's famous 'Blue Room,' which was once a popular theatre, where, among others, Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles performed.
The famous artists signed, as a rule, the door after their concert, but it disappeared after hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans in 2005.
- Some have the. We will have it.
You can return the items to the hotel for the 19. July 2019, and if you choose to participate in the competition, the winner is the person who brings the strangest object in, the seven free nights in the luxurious presidential suite.
