That's one solution, which I have personally employed with great
success.  Always get a ground level room, carry everything in.  Yes,
it's a pain in the ass, but there's already a great deal of
pain-in-the-ass involved in being a musician, so might as well get
used to it.

I've known people who do that also.  Personally, I'm not going to
sleep in a trailer or van, and I'm not going to make a bandmate do it
for me, so if it was my band I'd tell everyone to carry their gear
into the room.

Yes, get everything insured, but if you get stuff stolen on the road,
insurance won't help you out of the immediate jam.
