No, you do not need to let the cops in just because they are knocking on your door demanding to be let in. They would need a search warrant and you would have a right to see a copy of the warrant.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.

the hotel staff wouldn't be. Able to let them in also??

That is different because the hotel owns the property. Generally, a hotel has the right to enter their rooms upon reasonable notice even without your permission. If they want to let the police in, they can do so.

Customer
Ok than you
