The United States Department of Homeland Security,
which was established after terrorist attacks on 9/11,
names hotels as potential soft targets for mass casualties and economic damage.
Hard targets such as government or military institutions,
might be a primary target for terrorists.
But because of heightened security,
terrorists might look for smaller,
more achievable attacks by easily accessible soft targets.
Internationally, hotels have been victimized by such terrorist attacks.
The events are extremely rare,
but the threats exist and
Lodging Security Officers

Contact your manager on-duty if haven't already.

to fully respond to an incident where terrorist activity may be involved.
