The Danish, Dutch and Norwegians are the most honest with 88 percent, 85 percent, and 84 percent, respectively, saying they never remove items such as plush robes or luxury bedding. At the other end of the spectrum, 43 percent of Colombians say they don’t take costly items from hotels.

Sixty percent of Mexicans and 63 percent of travelers from India say they leave hotels’ property behind, according to Hotels.com.

Sixty-six percent of American travelers surveyed deny taking items, but when items are taken, linen and towels are the favorites.
