    Sadly a Ben Franklin state PA
    The guest info booklet is a corporate manual with no state info and says "strictly prohibited on the property"

  4. I sure hope this isn't going to become a trend across the country. I also travel a lot and just had to cancel my reservation at the Doubletree matket center in Dallas, TX and find another hotel as they are also now posted no concealed firearms. I have been staying there every month for a couple years, but no longer. I am going to call the property manager tomorrow.

    Does anyone no if TX has any laws prohiniting this as others have noted above some states do?

    This is the law in Texas concerning hotels:
    (This Becomes Law on 9/1/13) Sec. 2155.101 Thru Sec. 2155.103 States that if a Hotel/Motel has restrictions on firearms on their property they must display that on their website. If a hotel provides a written confirmation or a written statement of terms and conditions to a consumer after accepting the consumer’s hotel reservation by telephone, the hotel shall include information specifying how the consumer may review applicable guest policies. The guest policies must indicate the hotel’s policy regarding the possession, storage, and transportation of firearms by guests. The hotel can be fined if they do not list their restrictions.

    I just searched through PA Title 18 crimes code and the Uniform Firearms Act in PA and didn't find the word "hotel" or "motel" listed there at all. Therefore, if there is not law concerning it, then it is legal to carry.

    Therefore, the worst that could happen to someone carrying in a hotel in PA that had informed you that you could not carry, is that you would be trespassing.

    However, I'm with several others that say, if you don't want me and my firearms, then you don't want my business at all.

    I know there are a lot of people out there who might just ignore the sign and enter. Honestly if I had landed late and got to the hotel after midnight I might have myself. Given a choice though I prefer to not spend my money at businesses that deny us our rights to carry.

    As I mentioned initially I planned on contacting the property manager today in hopes of getting them to reconsider the policy. We had a great discussion, but he said ownership was committed to the policy.

    He did mention that a letter had recently gone out to all Hilton properties in the US informing them of their options of going gun free as individual properties, but this would not be a standard at all locations.

    They were coincidentally having their corporate legal summit to establish policies for all the properties that had decided to go gun free. Based on the TX law that was linked above they are going to require all properties nation wide to post their firearms policy on their web page and in reservation confirmations.

    For anyone who will be staying at a Hilton property please check their webpage and avoid properties that have gone gun free.
