    Just checked into a Hilton Garden Inn and got a surprise when I went to open the curtains..........., a cucumber with a condom on it! I will refrain from posting the name of this hotel, but will say I am currently in Wisconsin:)

    OK, that is strange.

    (Remind me of a story about an investigation into why a sex education and birth control education program failed to achieve any results; supposedly the researchers went back and interviewed the villagers, who pointed to the broomsticks with condoms they had dutifully prepared, just as the instructor had done.)

    Out of the gate I think you've pretty much trumped us all without any effort.

    Ha! Maybe he's modified his technique since the tinfoil set off the metal detector.

    Did you get someone from the hotel to remove it? Dispose of it yourself? Change rooms? Other options?

    I don't mind mentioning hotels...
    Hyatt in Palm Springs. We opened up the sleeper sofa for my son to sleep on. There was a collection of porn DVDS..3 to be exact. The sheets looked cleaned and pressed so we figure someone opened up the sofa bed and hid them in there...then forgot. I was a little ticked because my son (who is 7) saw them and they had pretty explicit covers....

    Of course my husband says "Can I keep them....please???????". Nope..handed them back to the agent at the counter when we checked out. You should have seen her face when I said "we found these in our sleeper sofa". It was priceless! She saw the DVDs and was speechless. Took her a few moments to compose herself..... we had a few chuckles over that one...

    Sounds like good opportunities to leverage for an upgrade. I once checked into a room and found the previous guests luggage still in the room. The front desk was mortified. They upgraded me without my asking at all. The OP's experience should have yielded the presidential suite!

    Also the story about introducing birth control pills in a developing country. Not very effective. A pregnant woman says "I don't understand why I'm having a baby. I gave my husband a pill every day.":D:eek:

    So not exactly a strange thing found in a hotel room but strange perspective. While working at a hotel one of our guests complained that her microwave wasn't working...puzzled because our rooms didn't have microwaves I walked with her to see what she's talking about - I get there only to find her bag of microwave popcorn in the safe.

    I've had:
    • A "gift" in the toilet bowl
    • A "gift" on the sheets
    • A used condom...this is the kicker...stuck on the window. I haven't quite figured that out yet!

    I had a nasty foul toilet bowl one time at the Westin Charlotte. Reported it and they gave me $50 credit toward my hotel bill :) I thought that was more than fair.

    Not kidding - I had the hardest time trying not to burst out laughing in front of the guest but once I got outside her room...hysterics!!!

    Weird. I was at a Hilton when this happened and they damn near comp'd my night.

    I figured, since I had to discover this, I need a manager to come up and witness what I've seen. I there is a problem in my room, I NEVER go back to the reception area. I make them come to me! This way they can experience the situation from a guest point of view. Ohhhhh...and I always take pictures of the staff in my room looking at whatever issue I have. This way my claim can never be disputed.

    Yes!

    One at the Wyndham Riverside New Orleans (directly across from the convention center). The other the W Lakeshore in Chicago. I wouldn't step foot in either of those properties.
