On February 2nd a woman staying at The Venetian unknowingly dropped one of her room keys on the casino floor. It was quickly retrieved by a local scumbag who entered the woman's room at 3am, made a video of her sleeping, and them proceeded to rape her. This after riding up the elevator with two other women and committing a lewd act on himself in front of their closed door after they entered their own room.

You'd expect a story like this to come from a Boulder Hwy hotel and not a swanky Strip resort and yet, here it is. The suspect was caught via facial recognition tech a few days ago.

This is why you should always use those supplemental locks that hotels always have on the door.

Also why you lose the envelope asap. Take a photo and ditch it.

The Venetian has the best facial recognition equipment there is. The"Greenies" are the ex-Mossad agents who guard the owner's private residence at the Venetian.

All persons arriving via the airport shuttle are dropped at the "Siberia" doorway and must navigate a long narrow corridor filled with several cameras.

TheVenetian has several "choke points" with cameras, multiple cameras are focused at the same location so gaze angle and head aversion are no longer problems. Processing time has been greatly speeded up by presenting the images up side down. Faces are no longer compared to 12 standard faces with the resultant index vectors used for searching. A researcher's girlfriend had returned from grocery shopping and was annoying the researcher by talking to their dog, so the frustrated researcher grabbed a tomato, bell pepper and a bok choi from her and discovered it speeded up the learning process by several orders of magnitude.

The key cards do not reveal room numbers bur the welcoming courtesy envelope does.

The hall cameras did not detect the lewd behavior but most doorways are slightly recessed at the Venetian.

Faces are compared to domestic violence orders, recent FelonyFlight flyers, etc.

Often a joke and mostly an annoyance to spouses.

Yes, although in this case her husband was still in the casino gambling and she didn't want to bar his entrance. Considering how things turned out, however, I imagine this poor woman will be barricading all hotel doors for the rest of her life.

If she dropped her key, how did she get into the room?

That's unclear. Obviously she had more than one key and probably dropped one while retrieving another from her purse. Usually there's only two though so how would her husband be expected to get in? Of course, the story mentions other family members so perhaps there were more than two of them staying in the room and therefore more than two keys.

I'm guessing she had two room keys

She probably took one out her envelope, didn't realize she dropped the envelope with the second key and merrily went up to her room

Canít speak for Venetian, but we almost always gave two keys when I worked hotels, two in the envelope. I usually didnít put room numbers on envelopes despite there being a place for that for just that reason. I generally circled the room number on the registration card and left the envelope blank unless they asked me to write it there or did it themselves.

Not JUST that reason, the more likely (imo) scenario is someone goes in and steals their stuff.
