In the wake of Sunday night’s attack in Las Vegas, the deadliest mass shooting in United States history, the Texas Hotel and Lodging Association sent a notice to all of its member properties asking them to reconsider their policies for “Do Not Disturb” signs on hotel guests’ doors.

The request could result more frequent entries into a hotel room, and is a direct response to the incident in Las Vegas, when an armed man unloaded hundreds of thousands of automatic rounds into a crowded music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

The request comes as Texas prepares for the Austin City Limits Music Festival, an event that approximately 500,000 people are expected to attend.

“Hotels should consider how best to address DND policies during major city wide events in which there will be large crowds,” said the group’s CEO, Scott Joslove, in the notice.

A majority of hotels in the Lone Star State currently have a 27-hour do-not-disturb policy. Suspected Las Vegas gunman Stephan Paddock allegedly checked into his hotel suite three days prior to the shooting.
