DENVER (AP) -- New Year's guests at a Denver Marriott were locked
out of their rooms when the clock struck midnight and their room
keys stopped working.

The 628-room Denver Tech Center Marriott says a room key
malfunction kept guests out of their rooms from midnight until
about 3 a.m. the hotel's general manager, Jennifer Atkins, says it
wasn't immediately known whether the malfunction was related to the
year change.

KUSA-TV in Denver reports that fights broke out among the
locked-out guests and that some revelers got sick in the hallways.
Denver Police were called to the scene but
said no one was seriously hurt. Atkins said she couldn't confirm
reports of fights and vomiting in the hallways.

Atkins says there were no confirmed reports of key card problems
at other Marriotts.
