Survey: Miami Residents Tops For Swiping Hotel Amenities
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – If you snag stuff from hotels, you’re not alone. Miami residents are tops among 20 U.S. cities for lifting amenities from hotel rooms, according to a recent LivingSocial Travel Escapes survey.
The survey revealed 52-percent of Miamians admit to having sticking fingers when staying in a hotel aboard compared with 39-percent of Americans overall.
So what are Miamians taking from hotels?
Thirty-seven percent of Miami residents said they take towels; 8-percent bath robes; 7-percent sheets, and 6-percent the remote control.
When looking at the national average, towels were tops with 28-percent followed by bathrobes, batteries, pillows, remote controls, sheets, bibles and umbrellas.
The survey also found Miamians also take more vacation days – 21.4 days a year compared to the national average of 14.8 days. They also spend more time abroad – 7.4 days versus the national average of 3.7 days.
Magic City residents are least likely among those surveyed to go camping, but they rank No. 2 for volunteering while on vacation.
The LivingSocial survey was conducted last month by Mandala Research among 4,000 Americans in the top 20 media markets, and 1,600 respondents in Canada, Australia, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
