The weekend before Christmas, I stayed at the Hampton Inn in Abingdon, VA. I have stayed here previously and always enjoyed it. When I departed on Sunday morning, I mistakenly left my cell phone charger in the room. I called the hotel from the road on Sunday afternoon to report this and ask the hotel to retrieve the charger. They claimed to be unable to find the charger. I called several times over the next 4 days and was told that "the housekeeping staff always returns things to the front desk", implying that I really didn't leave the charger. Well, I did leave it, and my cell phone charger did not just get up and walk away! So there is either a dishonest person on the housekeeping staff or the hotel has strangers walking the hall looking in rooms to see whether somebody left something valuable (which is hard to do if the doors are locked). If I had to bet, I'd say there is a dishonest person on the housekeeping staff who is now the proud owner of a very good cell phone charger. I have occasionally left items in my room at other hotels, and this is the very first time a hotel has not retrieved the item and returned it to me. It was very discouraging because I am unable to buy a cell phone charger like the one which was stolen.
