    Unhappy Hilton Hotels Are Not Gun Friendly

    I found this on another forum and thought that it was worth sharing here. If this is a repeat then I apologize. It is the response regarding having a firearm. Makes me look differently to staying at Hilton properties.

    Thank you for your message to Hilton Reservations and Customer Care.

    We apologize for the delay in responding. We experienced some e-mail systems issues that have now been resolved. It is our policy that we do not allow anyone (including off duty law enforcement officers) to possess firearms in any of our hotels. The only exceptions are:

    A. Sworn federal, state or local law enforcement officers while on official business and, when off duty, when required to carry weapons in the jurisdiction by statute, ordinance or rule, or an exception otherwise made by a Regional Senior Vice President.

    B. Insured and/or bonded armored car service employees under contract to the hotel, hotel guests, tenants or concessionaires, when required by law or for insurance.

    C. Airline flight crew members authorized by federal law who have current and valid credentials issued by the Department of Homeland Security/TSA as Federal Flight Deck Officers ("FFDOs").

    You may request in the future that the hotel store your unloaded firearm in a Safe Deposit Box during your stay.

    It is our intention is simply to provide a reasonable degree of safety and security at all times for every guest, tenant, customer, visitor and team member coming onto our property.

    We appreciate this opportunity to assist you and thank you for your continued loyalty! If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know.

    I'm still dreaming of the day that businesses and governments realize that BG's don't follow rules, and asking the GG's to disarm doesn't create a safe environment for anyone except a BG.

    It has nothing to do with safety or security, it has to do with bean counters and perceived liability.

    I probably couldn't afford to stay there anyway but... concealed is concealed.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Just carry your gun and keep your mouth shut

    What they don't know won't hurt me...however, now that I'm aware of their policy, they'll be my last choice anyway!

    Never stayed at a Hilton, but in Florida that ban would mean zilch, nada, zip, zero...nothing!

    I stayed in a Hilton last week, I had my weapon with me. I didn't ask, didn't tell, didn't care.
    Knowing is half the battle.

    I wouldn't mind, though, if the night manager sent a cute little French maid around to see if I was complying.

    Every hotel I stayed at in my travel from Florida to California, I didn't ask, didn't tell, and could care less.

    Of course, because we had trailer issues I wasn't in the mood to dicuss it anyways!
