Q: When should a hotel have a security guard to protect it’s guests?
A: It’s probably good practice for a hotel to have a security guard in all instances. However it depends on upon the factors. It depends on whether or not there have been crimes at the hotel or in the adjacent or near by vicinity. The hotel as the obligation to exercise reasonable care for the safety of the people who come into the hotel. Primarily its guests. If that hotel knows or should know that it is a high crime area and perhaps a high crime violent area then, a jury could decide if it’s a negligent security law suit. That the hotel should have hired a security guard and that the security guard would probably have prevented the incident. It depends upon the facts of every case or every situation as to whether or not there should have been a security guard at the hotel.
