The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be
a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.

The Story

There’s no use locking your suite anymore at any Caesars Entertainment property as the casino operator announced that it will enter the rooms of its guests with or without a “do not disturb” sign on their doorknobs.


The policy was in response to last year's Las Vegas shooting.

Caesars Entertainment told the Associated Press that rooms that have a “do not disturb” sign on their doorknobs will be checked every 24 hours. The company will also provide its staff with “panic buttons” that will allow them to call reinforcements if they need help or if they feel threatened. Caesars is the latest hospitality firm to adopt new room check policies after Disney, Hilton, MGM Resorts International, Wynn Resorts and Boyd Gaming. The change in the room check policies was implemented after a gunman broke windows in his Las Vegas hotel room and rained bullets down an outdoor concert in October, killing 58 people.
