As you likely already know, the Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers is coming up in a few days. Both teams are in the Las Vegas area already, getting ready for the game. I read on ESPN that the hotel where the San Francisco 49ers are staying had a fire alarm go off around 6:00 a.m. on Thursday February 8th.
49ers Awoken By Hotel Fire Alarm
It appears that the 49ers are staying at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa, which is in Henderson Nevada, about 30 minutes away from the site of the Super Bowl. At around 6:03 a.m., the fire alarm went off, and kept ringing for the next 18 minutes. Nobody was forced to evacuate as the hotel staff determined that it was a false alarm. It’s not clear to me if any of the 49ers actually did evacuate or not – the ESPN report mentions that star tight end George Kittle remained in his bathroom until the alarm stopped ringing.
What Happened? Should There Be Compensation?
Kittle reported that not all of his teammates were as calm about the situation as he was. At breakfast, he took an informal poll about who was most annoyed, which ended up as a tie between stars Christian McCaffrey and Nick Bosa.
I personally have only had a hotel fire alarm go off one time while I was staying. It happened at the Hyatt Place Atlanta Airport North while I was staying with my family as we drove down to Disney World. The alarm went off at about 3 in the morning, and we (along with most of the other guests) evacuated the building, which was quite annoying.
When I asked about hotel fire alarm compensation the morning after, the staff looked at me like it was crazy.
I understand that they can’t control if someone pulls a fire alarm, but on the other hand, I’m paying for a good night’s sleep, so it didn’t seem unreasonable that they might slip me a few thousand points for the inconvenience.
In this case, I doubt that the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa will be providing any sort of compensation to the 49ers or any of the other guests, but perhaps I am wrong.
The Bottom Line
With Super Bowl LVIII coming up in only a few days, the San Francisco 49ers were awoken at around 6 a.m. to a hotel fire alarm. While it was determined to be a false alarm, it wouldn’t surprise me if it was an enterprising Chiefs fan who pulled the fire alarm. While it’s not clear
