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.
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.
