Did you know that hotels can track the towels that you steal?
Linen Technology Tracking provides chips to over 2,000 hotels around the country, which are embedded into their linens. The housekeeping stuff knows where their towels, robes, and bedsheets are at all times. They get a smart alert the moment the towel in question hits the elevator!
But do not despair. Most hotels will not charge you for the towels that mistakenly make it into your suitcase. Apparently they use the chips just to know how many towels are taken, in average, each month.
