CHAPTER 7 REVIEW QUESTIONS: 1. What role does registration for a hotel room play in the formation of the innkeeper-guest relationship? Registration clearly evidences intent, but it is not essential for the relationship to exist. 2. Under what circumstances can a person who has not registered at a hotel be considered a guest? A request for a room or an advance reservation is sufficient to evidence intent on the part of a would-be patron to become a guest. 3. What is the significance of someone qualifying as a guest? The hotel is liable for someone who is a guest, and not liable for unqualified guests. If someone gets hurt, and the innkeeper-guest relationship didn't exist the person in this circumstance would be considered a trespasser and the innkeeper would not be liable. 4. Does a person who is attending a half-day seminar at a hotel without registering for a guest room qualify as a guest? No, unless they register for a room they are not a guest. 5. When does an innkeeper-guest relationship terminate? -the contracted time for the room has elapsed and it has not been extended -the bill is not paid when due -proper notice is given to vacate the hotel -a reasonable amount of time has passed since checkout -the bill has been settled and paid 6. What are some factors that distinguish a guest from a tenant? -the terms of contract between parties -the extent of control or supervision of the patron's room maintained by the proprietor, the more control and supervision is retained by the hotel, the more likely the patron is a guest. -the rental rate interval (daily, weekly, monthly). the shorter the interval, the more likely the patron is a guest -length of occupancy. the longer the occupancy, the greater the suggestion that the patron is a tenant. -incidental services offered. for example, frequent housekeeping and room services are often associated with guests but not tenants -whether the room has cooking facilities. -the kind of furnishings in the room and who owns them. CHAPTER 8 1. According to a common law, what is the innkeeper's liability for a guest's lost or stolen property? The common law imposed unlimited liability on inns and food establishments. Most states have since passed limiting statutes that significantly reduce this liability. (also pg. 284.) 2. What is a limiting liability statue? Laws that restrict an innkeepers' liability for property loss in exchange for strict statutory compliance by the innkeeper.
