Are there factors that a hotel should consider when determining if it is providing adequate security for its guests?

According to Florida case law as of the date of this article, there are several factors that a hotel should evaluate in determining whether or not crime is foreseeable (meaning, a crime is likely to occur). Those factors include:
- the crime rate in the community
- peculiar security problems created by the hotel’s design
- industry standards
- presence of suspicious people
- the extent of criminal activity in the area
After evaluating these factors, if the hotel determines that a crime is foreseeable, then it has a duty to take adequate security measures to protect its guests.
