Forget sleeping in late or enjoying some peaceful time in your hotel room... at least if you plan on staying at a Caesars Entertainment property.

The company is in the process of implementing a new policy by which it will conduct routine security checks on guest rooms every 24 hours even if you happen to have a Do Not Disturb Sign hanging outside your door.

Caesars Entertainment told The Associated Press Friday it also is considering giving panic buttons to its employees to enable them to quickly summon help if they are in danger or feel threatened. The company will implement the new policy soon at all its properties worldwide, spokeswoman Noel Stevenson said.

The company owns 47 casinos in five countries, including in Las Vegas where the worst mass shooting in U.S. history occurred last year.

"In light of recent tragic events and to further strengthen security, we intend to check rooms with 'Do Not Disturb' signs on the door every 24 hours," Stevenson said.

Room checks will be conducted by security personnel. Disney, Hilton, MGM Resorts International, Wynn Resorts and Boyd Gaming have implemented similar policies already.

MGM, which owns the Mandalay Bay casino in Las Vegas where the mass shooting took place, says it requires a room check after two days if a guest has not interacted in person or over the phone with housekeeping or other hotel staff. The company says it also "reserves the right to enter the room if it is deemed appropriate to conduct a welfare check."
