So I double booked rooms this week downtown and at Bally’s to take advantage of multiple offers. At Bally’s, I opted out of housekeeping at check-in as I prefer privacy and would only actually be staying there my last night/day anyway.
I did notice that they had added a line to the housekeeping opt-out disclaiming that they still reserved the right to do security checks on the room, but I thought nothing of it.
Then this afternoon, while I was in the shower getting ready to leave for the airport, there was a quick tap at the door followed by “Security check.” Without a pause, three security guards unlocked the door and barged in, then tapped on the bathroom door and opened that as well as I was frantically trying to get out of the shower and grab some clothes off the floor.
The female guard merely arched an eyebrow and told me they needed to do a “security check” that involved looking around everywhere in the room. She asked if I wanted them to come back in an hour. I said yes since I was about to leave anyway.
Does this only happen if someone has opted out of housekeeping for multiple days? Or is this just routine now? If so, I think it might be enough to make me turn in my diamond card and ditch CET permanently.
