Wanted: Chambermaids. Iron Nerves A Must


In Business This Week

WANTED: CHAMBERMAIDS. IRON NERVES A MUST

You're late, you're late, for a very important date. No time for more than a cursory glance around your hotel room to make sure you packed everything you arrived with--you've got business to do, and it's time to move. At your next stop, you realize you've left behind your calculator or your toothbrush.

But as Westin Hotels & Resorts found in an informal, in-house survey, departing guests will occasionally spring weird surprises on the housekeeping crew. How weird? Would you believe the disembodied heads of Madonna and Mae West? Fortunately, they were mannequins. And how do you explain a brand-new, unclaimed car radiator?
