Wacky Signs: The Weirdest Hotel Signs We’ve Ever Seen

by Jane Reynolds on March 4, 2013

Throughout our travels we’ve seen plenty of wild things — from rowdy guests to crazy contests, you name it. Not surprisingly, most have been in Vegas. But wackiness can be found all over the world, and we’ve seen some hilarious hotel signs in multiple countries. Check out seven of our favorites below.

Negril Tree House Resort, Jamaica

Well we feel safe…

The Negril Tree House is a budget-friendly boutique.


Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas

Now we know where Christian Grey stays in Vegas.

The Hard Rock may be off the Strip, but it still knows how to throw a party.


Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic

This spot is reserved for pregnant Dutch women.

Casa de Campo once hosted the entire Kardashian clan.


Puntacana Hotel, Dominican Republic

Where do women expecting twins park?

Puntacana Hotel sits on a beautiful beach great for swimming.


Le Parker Meridien, New York City

You can forget about disturbing these guests…but this sign won’t let you forget you’re in New York.

Le Parker Meridien is a sexy spot in Midtown.


Atlantis Paradise Island Resort, Bahamas

Sometimes we upgrade the jacket we lost with the better one we found in the lost and found. Does the same unspoken rule apply to kids, too?

One of the most recognizable resorts in the Bahamas, the Atlantis is a 3,400-room mega-hotel.


The Manhattan at Times Square Hotel, New York City 

So do the quotation marks mean it’s actually fine to do all of the above?

The Manhattan at Times Square Hotel has some awesome features, such as a sun deck.

Although not in a hotel, in Singapore I encountered a sign warning of imminent arrest if you didn’t flush the toilet.

Doesn’t anyone else notice the error on the sign at the pool at “The Manhattan”?!

Sleeping police is another way of saying “speed bumps” in Jamaica – it’s all good, Mon.

The sleeping police refers to the speed bump on the road in Jamaica.

the sleeping police is a speed bump. not sure why they say that, but i’m doing a direct translation of how you say it in my monther-tongue and that’s it=)

In Spanish a speed bump is called “policia dormiendo”, which translates to “Sleeping Police”. Maybe that’s also what they call it in Jamaica.

Sleeping police in Jamaica is what we called speed bumps here in the states

It is supposed to be “sleeping policemen” which is a UK term for bumps or curbs.
