    I hope that this is the correct location for this. I travel for a living and carry when I can. I have stayed many a night at Hilton properties but may not in the future. The following is a response from a Hilton rep regarding having firearms in the hotels.

    Thank you for your message to Hilton Reservations and Customer Care.

    We apologize for the delay in responding. We experienced some e-mail systems issues that have now been resolved. It is our policy that we do not allow anyone (including off duty law enforcement officers) to possess firearms in any of our hotels. The only exceptions are:

    A. Sworn federal, state or local law enforcement officers while on official business and, when off duty, when required to carry weapons in the jurisdiction by statute, ordinance or rule, or an exception otherwise made by a Regional Senior Vice President.

    B. Insured and/or bonded armored car service employees under contract to the hotel, hotel guests, tenants or concessionaires, when required by law or for insurance.

    C. Airline flight crew members authorized by federal law who have current and valid credentials issued by the Department of Homeland Security/TSA as Federal Flight Deck Officers ("FFDOs").

    You may request in the future that the hotel store your unloaded firearm in a Safe Deposit Box during your stay.

    It is our intention is simply to provide a reasonable degree of safety and security at all times for every guest, tenant, customer, visitor and team member coming onto our property.

    We appreciate this opportunity to assist you and thank you for your continued loyalty! If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know.

    ......we wish to do this by taking away any possibility of you being able to defend yourself or any other citizen by a firearm, even if possesion of said firearm is completely within local, state and federal laws. Any potential rapist, robber, attacker or murderer will know that we have a no gun policy and will not be armed because of this. If you are attacked, politely ask them to stop. If they continue, simply call one of our staff members and they will arrive shortly by unicorn and ask the attacker to stop, provide them with sugar plumbs to calm them and escort them away on a rainbow.



    There, I finished it for you.:D

    Ignoring, for the moment, all the people that are going to say, "It's their hotel so they can say no guns if they want to", how is the Hilton Hotel Chain going to know if I have a gun?

    There was a Ramada Hotel whose employees found out that I had a gun, in the not so distant past. So did the people they gave a key for our room. Double booking by an airlines is much safer than double booking a hotel room.

    :) I remember that. :)

    Double booking rooms without prior consent is a really bad thing.;)

    Well i stay at the skuzzie 8 or the Daze Inn most of the time cause i like real fancy stuff. I have allways just grabbed my pistol, rifle wide open and never a peep from anybody. Trust me i have done it alot. Now i am mostly in Tx, La or Nm so that might have something to do with it.

    I have traveled all over the U.S., and stayed in motels, and hotels. One thing I tell you for sure is that (as Jethro Gibbs says) it is better to appoligize than to ask for permission! I have carried guns in some places that you wouldn't think possibe, all because I kept my mouth shut. Some of these places would have landed me in jail if they had found out I was armed. Don't ask, Don't tell!

    That's me theory, as well. Only exceptions are local courthouses/PD's, and federal buildings.

    Same here......kinda redundant aren't I I have carried all over CA, NV, ans AZ. The only time I had a small bit of explaining to do was because of an overzealous housekeeper that ignored the 'DO NOT DISTURB' sign on the door knob in Susanville, Ca. a few years ago. But acually, there was no problem.

    Remember: the deadbolt, flip lock or chain is your friend. I utilize all the locks so it will be less likely that anyone can enter my room, including hotel staff.

    Does eating a can of beans before entering the courthouse count as a loaded weapon? :D

    That would depend upon whether the portly door-guards squeeze you or not....

    Oh man, now you tell me. I am setting in a room at the Hilton Garden Inn in Albany, GA. I ain't going to tell them that I do. If someone tries to come in the room at, lets say, 2:00 am, they will find out on their own. I guess the hotel will then find out shortly after that.
