"Industry Weekend" at Hotels?

Do the staff at hotels have perks where they, or family members can stay for free or reduced rates?

I was at the Residence Inn in Duluth this past weekend and the pool area seemed to be full of those that didn't seem to fit in... were entering and leaving from the side entrances.  As my stay continued over the weekend I saw some of them again, dressed as, etc.

This wouldn't have been a big deal, but the fact they were kind of disrespectful was a put off on this location.

My experience also was kind of a downer as I was in a room at the end of a hall and the Wi-Fi didn't seem to quite reach that far.

And some of the furniture in the room was in bad shape.

All of this for my $1000 weekend stay!
