Bailment is the transfer of when one person gives their personal property to another person. To qualify as bailment both people must understand that the property will be returned. This agreement can either be expressed or implied. An example of bailment is a guest who leaves their jacket at a coatroom.

Another provision for limited liability is for hotels to post notice that a safe is available for use. In most states this notice must be posted at the registration desk, the check-in form, and in the guest rooms to be considered legitimate. For example, a state may require a notice to be posted in all three of the before-mentioned places. If a hotel does not post the notice at the registration desk, the hotel would be liable for the full amount of the property stolen.

When hotels were first started they had an absolute liability law for stolen property. This meant that if any guest item was stolen from a hotel, the hotel was liable no matter what. Today hotels now have limited liability when it applies to stolen property. This means as long as they follow certain statutes and provisions they may not be liable for a guest’s stolen property.

One interesting part of bailment is if other items are left inside of bailed property. If the bailee is unaware of these items then they cannot be liable for them. If a thousand dollars is left in the coat that is checked at a restaurant the restaurant is not liable for this money. They are only liable for the coat as long as the guest does not inform them the money is in the pocket.

Bailment can have a large affect on liability, if a situation does not qualify as bailment there is no liability. For example, a guest could take their coat to a restaurant but not leave it at coat check. If a guest leaves the coat unattended it could be stolen. If it were stolen then the restaurant would not be liable at all, because the guest didn’t leave it at the coat check.

Even if a hotel follows all the provisions limiting statutes cannot protect the hotel when they are negligent. Nevada is one state that has different laws on negligence when compared to most states. In Nevada, even when the hotel is negligent, they are still only liable for up to $750 of the stolen property. This most likely is to protect the casinos and hotels that Nevada is famous for.

One of the most interesting things I found in this chapter was the provision about having a safe in the hotel. When I worked at the front desk of a hotel in Florida there were safes in every room and safety deposit boxes behind the front desk. When a guest used the safety deposit box it was very important for you to have them sign a sheet while getting the date and time as well. Looking back this was a important step because it helped to limit the hotels liability.

One other common provision for limited liability is that the hotel must post notice’s telling the guest the hotel has limited liability for stolen property. These notices must also make it clear as to how much value the hotel is liable for. In most states this value will vary, let us say that in Michigan a hotel is liable for up to $1,000. If a million dollars worth of goods is stolen from a guest, as long as the hotel followed all the provisions they are only liable for up to the $1,000.

One provision that hotels must comply with to have limited liability, is to provide a safe to protect the guest’s property. Currently most hotels provide an individual safe in each guest’s hotel room. Many hotels also provide a central safe or deposit box at the front desk. One important thing to note is that the hotels must be adequate enough to protect from fires and theft.

Sometimes theft of guest’s property can be a common problem in a hotel. Due to hotels not wanting to be held liable, they are doing multiple things to try and decrease these occurrences. One common thing they are focusing on is electronic key lock. These electronic keys allow the hotels to essentially change the locks every time a new guest uses a room
