Guests in a hotel are owed a duty of care. When you stay in a hotel, you expect that the premises are safe. Consider the following. The fire alarm goes off mid-evening in an upscale hotel. You are residing safely in your hotel room. When you hear the alarm, you proceed towards the nearest exit. As you enter the lobby, you hear the wail of the fire alarm, and speed towards the door. Except, as you walk across the tile, you slip and fall on a puddle of water and land on your back. As you land on your back, your head slams against the tile. Later you learn, the puddle of water that you tripped on had been sitting there for hours. This circumstance is more than likely the result of negligence on behalf of the hotel.
