Caesars Entertainment has revealed it will now check its guests' hotel rooms every 24 hours, even if guests have a "Do Not Disturb" sign displayed on the door.
The company also told The Associated Press Friday it is considering giving panic buttons to its employees to enable them to quickly summon help if they are in danger or feel threatened. The company has not given a specific date for the implementation of the new policy at all its properties worldwide, a spokeswoman said.
The room checks are to be conducted by security guards.
Caesars now officially joins other gambling and hospitality companies adopting similar policies. Among them are Disney, Hilton, MGM Resorts International, Wynn Resorts and Boyd Gaming. The frequency of checks can range from 12 hours to two days.
The new room check policies are in response to the Oct. 1st Las Vegas mass killings in which a gunman broke windows in his Mandalay Bay hotel room and then began spraying bullets across the Las Vegas Strip killing 58 people and injuring hundreds before killing himself.
