Hotel security protects hotel guests, employees, and the property. Hotel security typically works directly on the hotel property, patrolling the interior and exterior property. This is an entry-level position that requires strategic thinking and a discerning eye. If the situation calls for it, hotel security may also work with the local police department.
- The bulk of hotel security’s day is filled with patrolling hotel grounds, parking lots, lobbies, and hallways. Security provides a sense of security to both hotel staff and guests simply by being present.
- Hotel security may need to escort belligerent guests off hotel property, especially in the case of intoxicated guests.
- Security is responsible for making sure everyone partaking in alcoholic beverages or in areas where alcoholic beverages are sold is of legal drinking age.
- Security will prevent loss and damage by reporting irregularities; informing violators of policy and procedures; redirecting trespassers.
