Hotels Have A Heightened Duty Of Care Under The Law
West Virginia's innkeeper laws state that hotel owners and operators have a heightened responsibility to keep their properties safe and well-maintained. If a hotel bar or a restaurant serves alcohol on the premises, dram shop laws require them to take precautions to prevent bar or hotel liability for drinking-related illnesses or accidents.
