Some guests at the Beverly Hills hotel where iconic singer Whitney Houston was found dead have reportedly asked for a refund.
Those who were staying on the same floor as the late singer claim that law enforcement and medical officials kept visiting the floor, while security guards asked the guests for their key cards to check whether they were legitimately staying there. All this commotion, according to them, caused them extreme inconvenience.
According to a media report, several guests asked for refunds or discounts, but the Beverly Hilton has allegedly not granted the requests.
“Given the extraordinary nature of the events of last Saturday evening, the Beverly Hilton took every precaution to protect the privacy of the Houston family as well as the hotel guests who may have been impacted by the incident,” the hotel spokesperson was quoted as saying. “The hotel cooperated fully with the Beverly Hills police, which included securing the fourth floor to ensure the safety and well-being of all guests.”
The singer was laid to rest next to the body of her father John Russell Houston Jr. at the Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey on Saturday. Houston’s body was discovered at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel room on February 11.
