This is creepy. A guest at the DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles – Norwalk woke up to find a hotel employee standing at the foot of her bed.

The woman identified as @EmbezzlingErika on Twitter screamed when she saw the man and he sheepishly explained that he “called, but [she] didn’t answer [her] phone.” This is a clear violation of this woman’s privacy and a huge security risk. Not blaming her, but this is why it’s important to always deadbolt your hotel room door. The employee should be fired and not retrained as is indicated in the response she received after complaining to Hilton.


Thankfully, the woman is okay and she was not touched. In May, I wrote about another Hilton guest (in Nashville) who woke up to find an employee sucking on his toes. Hotel employees and guests can often easily access a hotel room. As stated above, deadbolt the door. This is the only way to ensure that you will be undisturbed while occupying your room.

Anthony’s Take: Who knows why this employee entered the room, but there is no reason he should have been there. Even if his intentions were not as nefarious as where my mind goes, he had no right to enter an occupied room uninvited and should be fired.

Not as creepy as you make it out to be. If a guest fails to answer their wake up call, the hotel is duty bound to respond until the guest is awoken. That means security or manager enters, (after no answer knocks) and makes sure guest is awake…or not dead.
