Hotel rooms that are used for party rooms may end up costing the guest more than they bargained for. Hotel rooms synonymous with party rooms, this is not how hotels want to be perceived. Many hotels have a low tolerance for guests that party in their rooms. The reason behind the low tolerance is quite simple….cost. Every time a guest decides to have a party in a hotel it costs the hotel money. The cost to the hotel comes from damages, the extra time and care needed to clean the room, and the reimbursement to other guests that were disturbed. The cost is not just monetary. There is also the cost of the hotels reputation. If a hotel that caters mostly to the business traveler gets a reputation for being a party hotel, than they may lose their business clientele.
Many hotels are starting to crack down on parties in their rooms. A few things that hotels are doing to prevent parties are having waivers signed by guests, requiring credit cards to be placed on the room, or large deposits. If a party occurs in the hotel, there may be only one warning before the police are called and the guests are evicted from the room, possibly without a refund or even arrested. The guests that were in the room may also be charged for damages done to the room, excessive cleaning, and possibly charged for lost revenue from complaining guests.
Hotels are places of business. There are places in hotels that were meant for parties. These are known as banquet or event rooms, not hotel rooms. Hotels want all their guests to feel safe and to be able to relax while staying with them. They want all of their guests to leave the hotel with a positive impression and experience.
Having a party in a hotel room is never a good idea. For the hotel, the guests having the party or the surrounding rooms, everyone suffers.
