    While I strongly disagree with that hotel's policy - When checking in or making reservations I NEVER ask if they have a problem with my being armed so it's never been and never will be an issue with me.

    What! it reads: You may request in the future that the hotel store your unloaded firearm in a Safe Deposit Box during your stay.

    What! they expect me to hand over my weapon to a unkown stranger!

    Is the mattress on their bed any better than the one at Motel 6?

    In my case, the sign looked complete and official, but was missing on a major point. So according to Texas law, it did not comply. So someone like me who found himself basically stuck there, could carry on a technicality. Not saying I did, but…

    Of course I didn’t point out this deficiency to the manager. The last thing I want to do is make the sign legally compliant.

    I don't ask that. But when traveling in Texas, I do ask if they have a 30.06 sign posted (the required signage according to Texas state law). The last thing I want is to find myself having to leave my handgun in the car at the end of a long trip.

    The funny thing is that question also does not tip my hand. For all the know Iím some anti-gun idiot that would never dream of staying in a Hotel without the protection of the sign disallowing concealed carry.

    Hmm. That is strange considering the IDPA National Championship match hotel was a Hilton last year and is again this year. I wonder how many guns were going in and out of that place over the 4-5 day period?

    It is our policy that we do not allow anyone (including off duty law enforcement officers) to possess firearms in any of our hotels.
    Interesting.

    In many states off duty LEO's that are carrying have specific exemptions which allow them to carry anywhere.

    Hilton Hotels

    I stayed at a Hilton property while at a 2 day CRG Class in Tenn. I carried my range bag, which is well identified as a GUN Bag in and out each day with my guns in it and CCW on myself. Not a word was said. I am a Silver member and used points for the Free stay. There was also no sign posted. I have looked out for those signs in the last 2 years and have not seen the first one and I am out and around alot.

    Strange.

    I stayed at a Hilton property while attending the NRA convention in Charlotte a month or so ago.

    They had NRA 2010 signs up everywhere.

    I also open carried in their lobby on numerous occasions and no one said a word.

    I guess this isn't a place to OC. I'm sure not going to leave it in the truck where it can be stolen. If you were to shoot someone trying to harm or rob you whats the worse The hotel can do to you? Around here most of the robberies happen the parking lots or people who leave their doors open at motels

    I am not saying the OP is making this up, but I am definitely smelling something funny here. Maybe the OP emailed a franchise hotel in CA?
    I'm also a Diamond VIP Hilton member, been one for about 7 years now, and stay in Hiltons and it's other chains all over the midwest, central, and south eastern US, and I have never saw a posted hotel in any of the Hilton brands. One Hampton Inn (a Hilton brand) is beside a firearm training range and I have, as well as more people than I could ever count, carried openly, carried long guns, carried range bags, into this hotel with nary a word spoken about it. No offense to the poster, but you can't always believe these chain type emails, much less one simply because it is posted somewhere on the internet, so sorry, I'm not buying they are anti-gun.........

    Just got a phone call from their Honors department ...

    Caller told me they follow state law in regards to CC. I brought up an earlier post about San Antonio and he said that must have been an error and that he'd follow up with the general manager.

    I think you need to go past the normal email guy or first level customer service rep.
    I'd say that's the truth of the matter right there from my personal expierence of staying almost exclusively in Hiltons (and it's brands)somewhere on average of 140 nights a year.

    I believe prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance should have REMAINED in schools, and the Ten Commandments should have REMAINED in schools, courthouses, and everywhere else it was before the ACLU got involved.

    Hampton Inn Addison Texas

    I recently stayed in Addison Texas and the Hampton Inn had 30.06 signs posted on the front doors only. General manager told me Loss Prevention for Hilton directed them to place the sign. I have with no luck been able to get Hilton to call me back regarding the signs. Guess Motel 6 gets my business going forward.

    After what happened in Mumbai India on 11/26/2008, I strongly disagree with hotels banning legally owned firearms.

    if she was French she wouldn't know what a gun was anyway. Not unless it was on the floor.

    In Texas it is illegal to make a Peace Officer (on duty or off) leave your property on the mere premise that he is carrying a firearm.
