Report: Some luxury hotel guests taking their mattresses with them

A CBS report found that some hotel guests wake so rested at luxury properties that they purchase the same kind of mattress they slept on, but added that other patrons would rather steal their mattresses.

At least 48 mattresses have disappeared from guest rooms in the more than 1,100 four- and five-star European hotels surveyed by German review site Wellness Heaven. Guests at five-star hotels were 8% more likely to take mattresses, perhaps because they were more comfy, according to the survey, the CBS report said.

But the mattress thefts paled in comparison to the nearly 900 towels or 753 bathrobes that hotels say went missing. Hangers, pens, cutlery, cosmetics and blankets were among the other most commonly lifted items, the story said.
