Hotel Firearms Policy

No Openly Carried Firearms

The safety and security of our guests and associates is of utmost importance. This policy is designed for the protection of our guests and associates, and pertains to the presence of firearms on hotel premises.

Our hotel premises are private property. This hotel PROHIBITS any person from openly carrying any firearm in an unconcealed (open) manner onto the hotel premises. This policy applies to all firearms, regardless of whether the firearm is a handgun or a long-barreled gun.

Guests or visitors of the hotel who are lawfully permitted to possess a firearm may bring such firearm onto the hotel premises only in a concealed manner.

Any guest or visitor who is in possession of a firearm on hotel premises much be in compliance with hotel policies, as well as all local, state, and federal laws. Additionally, any guest or visitor in possession of a firearm is responsible for ensuring that the firearm is:

  • Concealed at all times;
  • Unloaded when stored;
  • Secured in a locked, hard-sided firearm container provided by the guest when stored; and
  • Lawfully carried in a concealed manner by a guest possessing any required proper, valid license(s).

Guests who fail to abide by this policy may be asked to leave the hotel premises.

An exception to the restrictions described in this policy statement applies to law enforcement officers and designated military personnel, who are on-duty and required to carry firearms in the performance of their duties. No exemption to this policy is provided for private persons; even for those persons otherwise licensed and permitted to carry a firearm openly under state law.
