03:24 pm - Interesting night in a hotel room
I got very little sleep last night. The reason was that my hotel room was sandwiched in between two loud parties that were still going at 2am. One apparently was a bachelorette party, and another was some group of guys who were partying in a hotel room for a reason of which I'm unaware.
I called the front desk about the noise, and they had hotel security come up and talk to the two rooms of people. That quieted them a little, but by 3:30am they were loud enough to wake me up again.
Then, the event of the evening happens. Some guy from the guy party is poking about on the ledge outside my hotel room. I notice this, and then lo-and-behold, he slips through the window of my room. This is when I notice that he's completely naked.
I yell, very loudly, "Get out of my room!" in a "you will do this now" sort of tone. I yell it again and prepare to violently repel the intruder if need be, but he gets scared and leaves.
I call the front desk, and they are credulous but shocked. They call the police.
It takes the police about 15 minutes to show up and start getting the people out. They remove the bachelorette party first. I watch through the peephole and listen to the thin justifications, complaints and threats against the hotel's reputation from the people in the room.
When they get to the room full of guys I open my door so I can watch. I want to identify who the naked guy was, even though I didn't see him that clearly because it was dark. There are only two guys who were the right build and one of them comes over and harasses me and asks me why I assume it was one of them. I think he's frightened of actually being arrested.
I can't identify any of them definitively though, so I don't think anybody was arrested. I talked to the people at the front desk the following morning and apparently the guy had intended to try to get into the bachelorette party but miscounted and ended up in my room.
The hotel gave me that night free.
