Some Hotels Taking Away ‘Do Not Disturb’ Sign in Wake of Las Vegas Shooting


If you like to pop a “do not disturb” sign on your door at hotels, things may be changing.

Walt Disney Resorts is considering replacing all it’s signs in response to the Las Vegas massacre in October.

Gunman Stephen Paddock shot his victims from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

He hung a “do not disturb” sign on his suite door as he gathered his arsenal.

Last month Hilton instructed all employees to alert management or security whenever they see a “do not disturb” sign displayed for more than 24 hours.

“The longer you allow that to occur without being able to check on the room obviously it allows the adversary more time to plan a more comprehensive attack,” said Jeffery Muller, a security expert.

The owner of the Mandalay Bay, MGM Resorts says they had a policy of doing welfare checks on rooms with a “do not disturb” sign for 2 consecutive days and that there were numerous interactions with Stephen Paddock every day at the resort.
