This goes for ALL travellers!
In the event of an attack, the best way to win is to keep the attacker "beyond arms length". A baseball bat is nice but they are STILL too close. Pepper spray can blow back at you as you have little control over its direction after you spray it. Electronic stunners do NOT keep the attacker "beyond arms length" and a Taser can be defeated by heavy clothing.
Considering all states (with the exception of Illinois - thank you "Shitago"!) have some form of open or concealed carry, get a GUN and keep it under your pillow or nightstand drawer while you sleep. Just be sure to either hide it securely (to keep it safe from housekeeping) or put it in a LOCKABLE nondescript container and lock it in the hotel safe when you can't take it with you.
Guns save lives people, namely YOURS!
