‘Multiple arrests were made and bans issued in connection with the fight. Behavior like that will not be tolerated,’ Gary Bitner of the Seminole Tribe Police told DailyMail.com.
‘Surveillance cameras are everywhere and any bad behavior will be captured on video for law enforcement.’
The two-part video shows about a dozen people kicking, punching, shoving, and hitting each other with other objects in an area that appears to be the lobby of the hotel.
The combatants are eventually separated by security personnel, though some continue fighting despite the efforts of some to calm things down.

The Hard Rock Hollywood is one of five casinos operated by the Seminole tribe, a federally recognized tribe whose members live in Oklahoma and Florida.
Tribe members are scattered in various reservations across central and southern Florida.
The Hollywood casino and the Guitar Hotel, which is part of the complex, were reopened to guests six weeks ago after the facilities were shut down as part of the coronavirus lockdown.
The casino said it has implemented new rules requiring guests to wear face coverings while practicing social distancing.
Florida has seen a sharp rise in the number of coronavirus cases in recent weeks.
A Florida judge on Monday upheld a county’s coronavirus ordinance that requires masks be worn in public places like stores, saying government officials have the authority to protect their residents from the spread of infectious diseases.

Circuit Judge John Kastrenakes, noting Palm Beach County’s recent spike in cases and deaths, rejected the challengers’ claim that the recently enacted ordinance violates their rights to privacy and personal autonomy.
The Palm Beach ruling came as Florida passed 6,000 coronavirus deaths, with almost 40 per cent of those happening during the current spike that began about a month ago.
The state health department reported another 76 deaths, bringing the number of people in Florida who have died of coronavirus since March 1 to at least 6,048.
About 2,400 of those have died during July.
The state recorded 8,892 new confirmed cases Monday, bringing the total to almost 424,000.
The positivity rate for tests over the last seven days is 19.2 per cent – that is about where it has been for about the last three weeks, but six times higher than it was two months ago just before the number of cases began spiking followed a few weeks later by the number of deaths.
