Usually I always avoided the lobby floor to avoid getting questioned when start filming elevators, unless that the elevator banks are hidden or not too close with the lobby or reception desk. I usually start filming elevators on the upper or lower floors where it is safe.
On the day I filmed the elevators in Grand China Hotel, I though starting and ending on the lobby was safest because I've also filmed the elevators in Mercure and Ibis Bangkok Siam (Two hotels in the same building), and started and ended on the lobby, but I didn't get questioned.
Maybe this is because the floors are locked in Mercure Bangkok Siam*, making they don't care at all. Hotel staffs in Thailand seem to careless when the floors are locked, as you still can't go up even you don't get questioned. Because of this, the hotel staffs let the keycard reader "took their job" of questioning unauthorized people instead.
*Although the top floor is unlocked because it's a pool.

This experience is similar to when I was filming elevators in Grand China Hotel. I did many takes before a successful take, and I though ending outside the elevator on the lobby was the safest, making me get questioned at the end. I should have taken the escalators to one of the upper floors before I started and ended the video on the upper floor.
In this video, you can hear someone's voice talking at 0:16. I just didn't answer him/her:

This quite surprised me:



Near the end of the video, you can clearly hear the emergency intercom suddenly activated and a person (or security guards) is speaking. I think what the security guard meant is that he is asking me to stop filming the elevator and leave the hotel immediately, possibly because at the date when I went to that hotel (November 2012), I film all the elevators which has CCTV installed in every elevators. Then the security guard must be watching me in each elevators I've filmed and suspected that I was trespassing and did something suspicious in his opinion. I was speechless and didn't attempt to talk to the guard, let me finished my video and quickly leave the hotel. This is actually my first time experiencing like this.

Also, in conclusion to above, I've created a list of "places that I have avoided to film elevators", the places are:

  • Kutabex Shopping Mall - after my experience* in there, I swear to never return to that mall again.
  • Harris Sunset Road Hotel - after the experience above, unless I visited my family who stays in there.

*see my "My Experience in Kutabex Shopping Mall" post.
