    Sooo - getting away for 3 days with my son since he's missing our family vacation due to an internship that he has this Summer. Trying to save every nickel, what are the chances of getting caught putting 4 people in a room when only 2 are registered?

    Thanks!

    4? I don't think there will be an issue with 4. We are putting 8 in one but it's also the 2BR sky suite.

    There isn't any way for them to know unless you tell them.

    Even if the maid came by and saw 4 people in the room she won't know if thats how many people are staying in the room or if its just two of you and the other two are staying in another room/somewhere else and just visiting.

    4 will be no problem. 7 or 8 and up in a normal sized room takes some coordination.

    Just don't walk up to check in with all four people. Asking for four keys might tip them off as well. Just be smart about it and you won't have any problems.

    We once slept 8 in a standard room at what was then called the Union Plaza, back when we were in college. Smelled like teen spirit. The only people who objected were those on the floor.

    I agree, just be discreet when checking in and just ask for 2 room keys and ask for another key later, and ask for the 4th a few hours later. Don't ask for separate cots or a third person as they may charge extra for the extra bodies. As long as you don't make a rukus then most of the time they probably won't even notice.

    Of course it depends on the hotel you are staying at, some with security at the elevators might question 4 people checking in and walking to the room at the same time so maybe best to go 2 at a time. But then it's still highly unlikely they would bother 4 people because you could just say that you are in adjoining rooms.

    No problem, we just went back down a couple of times later during the trip to a different person on reception and said that we had lost one of our cards. They just gave us a new card, that way you can also make sure that everyone can get pool access as well.

    No need to worry at all. I don't think I've ever booked a hotel anywhere and said I had more than 2 people, and almost always do.

    You can even ask for more than 2 keys at check-in, just say "we always lose them, could we get 2 backups?". Totally reasonable request.

    Your chances of being caught are almost zero as long as your group creates no unusual noise or disturbance. I wouldn't worry about it.

    The security person has no idea:
    How many checked into the room
    Or what room you are going to
    or if these are just temporary guests
    of if they are in different rooms

    Indeed. Let's not overthink this.

    Exactly. Should not be an issue at all.

    which is the bigger infraction, sneaking into a pool or extra people in a room?

    As long as you are not at one of the party pools that charge separate admission, they usually don't care about that either. If anything, they are usually worried about crowds, lack of chairs, security and/or safety rather than merely freeloading. After all, the pool is another profit center. They sell cocktails and rent inflatable rafts, etc. Anyone who tries to get towels will need a room key but most places will give one person as many as they reasonably need. Some of them check for a room key when you walk in but others don't. The Bellagio seems strict for example, and I think the pool monitor has a computer to sign people in. On the other hand, the Orleans is self policing with a slot for your room key.

    If it is off season or a weekday at a place like that, i wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Ah ha, the old situational ethics-type question that so sets VMB aflame. :wink2:

    My vote is for sneaking people into the pool. Having more people in your room does not impact me. There is a small chance that bringing in a dozen people to the pool might affect me.
