To all you people thinking the hotel should have hotel like this has thousands of rooms and thousands of employees. These are MASSIVE operations.
They are not setup to notice if a person arrives multiple times and takes a lot of luggage up.
Besides, that just wasn't considered unusual before this occurred. Even today, hotels don't have ANY way to know what is inside someone's luggage.
Hotels are not like airports. Yet.

Since when do single guests arrive at a hotel with 7 bags??? Alarm bells are ringing in my mind. A single guest should have maybe 2-3 bags, tops.
