hotel tours

Postby mosey » Fri Dec 13, 2013 7:54 pm

Just wondering if Hotels in the Hotel zone are accessible (a nosey looky type tour) to 'non guests' for future rental considerations? Are hotel properties gated or guarded?
I'd like to feel the vibe, not just read or hear about it.
Or does one need to be a registered guest?
We always stay in down town area and have never stayed in a hotel compound before, but the package prices are becoming more attractive coupled with a flight.
Thanks.

The answer to this probably depends on you. If you are young and pretty or old and wealthy, it should be no problem. If you are not either or a combination of the two, it may be a problem. I, personally, have been forced to leave two of these hotels. Once was when I was assisting a wedding photographer and once when I was invited to a party. I guess you can tell that this would not work for me. :lol:

What if you are young and pretty on the inside where it counts? But old and have means, but not wealthy?

> Okay. So I stay outside the compound while my pretty, wealthy wife gets to peruse the grounds?
Thanks for the reply. Sounds like they're not strictly for reg. guests? We'll have to hail a cab and see for ourselves. It's all part of the adventure in P.V.

We have visited many hotels to see the facilities/rooms. Never just walked around though, always asked for manager or concierge & explained we were looking for future accommodations. All have been very accommodating & some even gave us wristbands so we would not be bothered by security while we wandered around,there was never a 10~15 minute timeframe & after showing us room samples with bellboy we were free to roam!
Only time we have had issues is in timeshare complexes where the first thing they want to do is sign you up for a presentation !! but even then after refusing they still show you the resort.

The only place we have been escorted off hotel property was in Miami Beach. The guards here will often ask what we are doing. We either quote a valid room number that we are visiting (sometimes they will call it and we say they are meeting us in the lobby) or say we are heading for the shops/restaurants. (I guess we qualify as old and well off?)

(Once at the old Getaway hotel, we met a resident from SK on the beach. He invited us in for free all-inclusive drinks. We thought that their security was pretty lax.)
