AS I SAID IN MY POST......VEGAS IS ALREADY making it mandatory now that they enter your hotel room once within 24 hours! It's implemented already! You can't refuse or they will call the police and have you thrown out!!

As far as your rights with them asking to go through your bags and luggage....places already demand this now such as concerts, sporting events, etc. They have metal detectors and they ask to look in your bag or purse. Again, if you refuse then you're not allowed entry!

Curious, can you give an example of what questions were so difficult? All you're doing is answering things honestly to the best of your knowledge right?

So do you think these room persons are then going to go through the occupants belongings once they enter the room to clean it?

My son is a chamber person and would not be doing that. It is already too easy for hotel patrons to claim someone took something from their room, without giving person for someone to go through your belongings.

also what happens if they find something like a gun or knife?

If they saw an arsenal of guns like what happened at Mandalay Bay I would assume they would call the police!

I occasionally encountered hotel security screening when traveling to Africa. Most of the time I was waved around the screening check point. On the rare times I actually had to pass thru a metal detector, if I set off an alarm they would usually just wave me on thru.

I don't see an increase in hotel security in the U.S. coming any time soon. There would be basically no positive financial return on the investment required to provide real security.

Just how far do you think they should go in taking away privacy.


Consider, the staff checks your room and finds say Cocaine.


Will we then have each and every guest arrested.


Do you think a young lady wants hotel staff in Vegas finding her "marital aide"?


Is it really necessary to search through personal belongings to find out who is on Viagra.


Will the room searches be announced so you can be there... or will they take place only when the guest is away.


How long before a guest reports money missing from their room.


I'm sorry but "in my opinion" this has not been fully thought through.


EDIT: I nearly forgot. when a person places an item in the room safe, will staff be allowed to use their bypass code and check the contents?

"VEGAS IS ALREADY making it mandatory." Vegas who? The City of Las Vegas? The Las Vegas Hotel and Conventions Bureau? Or are you simply referring to the independent decision of one or more hotels? Do you have a reference as to what entity is making anything "mandatory" and what the scope of this edict is?

As a result of the Vegas incident, Hilton/Disney now can/will ignore "Do Not Disturb" signs after 24 hours; doubt that means they'll be flipping mattresses looking for weapons, but it's a change that is bugging travelers that don't want people coming into their rooms.
We were at Disney last week and I noticed the signs now say Room Occupied instead of Do Not Disturb. I had heard they had a change in policy so I didnít check to see any fine print.

ALL HARRAHS properties are now doing this, nationwide. You must allow hotel staff in your room once every 24 hours. If you don't comply than you will be removed from the property. If you don't like, than don't stay at a hotel owned by Harrahs.


Harrahs Las Vegas properties:


Harrahs
Flamingo
The Linq
Planet Holllywood
Paris
Cromwell
Bally's
Caesars

Oh. So, actually no one is making it "mandatory," one company is making it their policy, for now. That is very different. There are plenty of choices on where to stay in Las Vegas; some may use this decision as part of their selection process.
