Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York, which is famous far beyond the city, proposed to forgive all those, once decided to "test the quality" of the interior decoration, but forgot to return the things. Amnesty program, which was launched by the Waldorf-Astoria management, would be valid during the two months. To participate in the program are invited those, who for whatever reason borrowed some things from Waldorf-Astoria in the period from 1931 to 1960.
Administration of the Waldorf-Astoria plans to find new exhibits for its museum archives. The hotel offers all participants to add a short description of the returned relics, which will indicate how and when the item leaved the room.
Objects returned to the Waldorf-Astoria will become part of the exhibition devoted to the history of the hotel. It is expected that some of the items along with books about the hotel, old postcards and even a piano, which at one time played the famous jazz musician Cole Porter, will be available in the hotel lobby. Another part of the items will be photographed and pictures posted on the hotel page in Facebook.
As reported by the Fox News agency, according to Matt Zolba, marketing director of Waldorf-Astoria, the program has two main purposes: to fill up the archive and attract the attention of young people to the hotel with the help of social networks.
It should be noted that the hotel lobby houses the exhibition since 2006. It is a model of the "hotel inside", which clearly demonstrates the telecommunications system, room service and other hotel services.
Waldorf-Astoria hotel is one of the most famous in the world. It is located in New York on the Fifth Avenue. Today it, as well as the whole brand, is owned by the Hilton Hotels. In 2012 around the world will be opened three Waldorf-Astoria hotels in Jerusalem, Berlin and Panama.
