Orlando's Marriott World Center resort was partly evacuated Tuesday morning while a bomb squad investigated a suspicious package on the loading dock, the Associated press reports.

The box was ultimately deemed harmless. Orange County Sheriff's bomb experts found promotional basketballs inside.

No one claimed the package, so hotel staffers followed policy by calling law enforcement, the story says.
