Multiple guests staying at the Beverly Hilton Hotel the day Whitney Houston died claim their stay was absolutely UNBEARABLE due to commotion surrounding the singer's death -- and the hotel has done nothing to address their dissatisfaction.

TMZ spoke with several guests who stayed on the 4th floor when Whitney died -- the same floor Whitney had been staying on -- and they tell us ... the entire floor was on lockdown over the weekend, making their lives miserable.

Why should the hotel offer a discount, or refund money? If a few other guests there at the time of her death were that troubled let them make a claim against her estate. This is beyond silly.

Oh the humiliation these guests were subjected to! Imagine having to show your card key to get to the 4th floor as if you were some common lookie-loo cruising for a cheap thrill. Would have been far better to open up the floor to the general public and offer a peak inside the room for $20.

Whine, whine, where's the cheese? Their stay would have been "unbearable" anyway due to the Grammy awards.

My heart bleeds. Just imagine the mileage they're going to get out of this every time they tell their family/friends/coworkers/strangers on a bus that they were staying at the hotel where Whitney Houston died!

They were not upset because of the events, they were upset that no agents came a calling looking to sign them to movie or tv deals.

I think it depends on exactly what the situation was. If I simply had to show my ID and have it checked against a list of registered guests (total time around 30 seconds) then whatever.

But what would get me would be excessive noise and commotion in the hallways. If there were all sorts of people up and down the hallway or in the adjoining room all night making noise so I couldn't sleep, I absolutely would expect the hotel to either move me to a quieter floor or comp the room. That goes for anything from police to party-ers. When I book a hotel room, I expect peace and quiet, and if the hotel doesn't provide that, I don't want to have to pay for the stay.

Since she found dead at 330pm The hotel, should have
1. Not put anyone who was booked on that floor that had not been checked in yet.
2. Ask any guest who is currently booked on that floor if they want to be moved based on the know activites that the police, ME, Etc. would be doing for hours.
2a. Move the guest to a different floor, If the whole hotel is booked solid, "walk" them to a different hotel. The people in 1. and any who dont want to be on that floor, move them to a different hotel.

That way anyone who is left on that floor 'wants' to be there. Knowing what type of activity will be going on all night.

What if the hotel was sold out that night, which it probably was. How would you then do this?
