Although the finder of abandoned property is not required to find out its owner, it is better not to liquidate the property before making sure the property is really abandoned but not mislaid or lost. So the first step when an item of value is found is to return the property to its rightful owner. When that is not possible, the manager should protect the property safely until the owner returns for it. Only when the owner is sure not to return for the property should it be liquidated.

Lost property refers to personal property that has been inadvertently put aside then forgotten by the rightful owner. Although under common law the individual who finds lost property in a public place is allowed to keep it unless its owner returns to claim it, many states' laws require the finder to make a reasonable effort to locate the rightful owner of both mislaid and lost property. Generally, The length of time that lost properties are held vary with the value of the properties.

Properties with unknown ownership are categorized into three types: mislaid property, lost property and abandoned property. Mislaid property refers to personal property that has been put aside on purpose but then has been forgotten by the rightful owner. An example can be an umbrella left by the facility's door which its owner forgets to take away. One thing to note is that the manager can be found liable to the true owner if the property is given to a wrong person.

When a bailment is created but the bailor is not able or refuse to pay the charge, the bailee can hold the bailed property until lawful payment is made by the bailor. For example, when a guest refuses to pay for the parking, the hotel may withhold the automobile, which is defined as detained property. In the cases the guest choose not to pay the bill, most states allow the hotel to sell the properties and apply the proceeds from the sale to the bill.

A hospitality facility will only be responsible for the items included in the created bailment relationship. This also means the facility does not take responsibility for the items inside bailed property such as an expensive camera in a bailed car. However, managers should still take some level of care of the guests' possessions to avoid being accused for negligence.

There are three types of bailments and they are  categorized by the person who takes the benefit. Bailments for the benefit of the bailor include a repairman asks to leave the tools in the hotel's storeroom. Bailments for the benefit of the bailee include a country clud borrows dishes from another local club for a large event. Bailments for the benefit of both parties include valet parking service shown in the photo.

The legal concept bailment indicates the delivery of an item for some purpose, and it should be returned in the same or similar condition in which it was received when the purpose has been completed. Examples of bailment include coat checks, valet parking, safety deposit boxes, laundry, luggage storage and delivery. A hospitality facility will only be held responsible when a bailment relationship is created.

When a hotel wants to take advantage of a state's laws limiting its liability for a guest's properties, the first thing to do is to post the notice in not less than 10 conspicuous places in the hotel (e.g., office, sitting room, bar room, and washroom). The hotel should also provide a secure safe where the guests can keep their valuables during their stay. Reasonably safe room with suitable locks for doors and windows should also be provided.

Because a hotel is not a bank, the Ohio statute allows the innkeeper not to be liable for the safety of an unlimited amount of personal property. Most states also establish a dollar limit on the replacement value of a guest's luggage, because it is impossible to know the certain items that may have been contained in it. But when the loss of a guest's property is due to the innkeeper's negligence, the statute limiting liability will become ineffective.

Under common law, innkeepers are regarded as the insurers of the guests' property safety. An innkeeper will be liable for damage to, or loss of a guest's property, which can be an extraordinarily difficult task. Because this general rule put too much risk to the innkeepers, legislatures in every state modify the common law liability and establish limitations on innkeeper liability.
