Hotels hotels hotels. What's important? How many hundreds have I stayed in? Very few will stick in my mind. Being new to Tripadvisor I discover I have to write the reviews quickly before I forget the distinctive features of each hotel and they all merge into a fog. But this one I will remember for the honesty of one of it's maids. After having checked out in the morning I missed my watch. I racked my brain trying to remember where I had put it and mentally went through my mind of the room check I had made before leaving. I went back to the hotel and searched through my suitcase in the baggage storage area but didn't find it. I finally asked reception if it had been found in the hotel. To my immense surprise and relief the maid had found it in the bed sheets and handed it to the manager.
We take for granted these women who come in and make up beds and clean bathrooms around personal belongings. It would have been easy for her to keep this watch. Or to have sold it for a few bonus. But not only does this woman do a thankless task, for probably low wages, she had my back, and she has the most important of qualities - honesty, integrity, dignity. Thank you, it means a lot.
