A New Orleans hotel is launching a unique promotion, rewarding the guest who returns the most interesting pilfered item from any point in the hotel's history with a week-long stay in its presidential suite

The Roosevelt New Orleans, a historic hotel within the Waldorf Astoria family, will be hosting a special vacation giveaway centered around a unique theme: theft. The Historic Giveback Contest takes inspiration from hotel guests who now and then steal from the hotels they vacation at.

The Roosevelt New Orleans will judge the most interesting items pilfered to determine the winner, running through July 1. The guest who wins will receive a seven-night stay at the hotel in its Presidential Suite, a gift that is valued at $15,000. Contestants can either bring their items to the concierge desk or mail them in to win the stay, free dinners from the hotel's executive chef and spa treatments.

Some of the items to have already been sent in include tablecloths, menus and brass room keys. The Roosevelt New Orleans will even return the items to the sender at the end of the summer after a celebratory ceremony, if requested.
