Authorities are trying to determine why Paddock, 64, killed 59 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.
But the 21-story hotel says that no one by that name actually checked into the hotel during the festival, and authorities have not confirmed that it was the same person as the Las Vegas shooter. To her stay overseas during mass murder, she said that paddock had given her a plane ticket to visit her family.

In it, Danley describes her friend Stephen Paddock as a caring and benevolent person whom she loved.
She was out of the country when the shooting happened, visiting her native Philippines.
Authorities found 19 weapons from his home in Mesquite, a small city in Nevada, and 23 in the Mandalay Bay Hotel room in Las Vegas from where Paddock opened fire on 22,000 people attending a concert at a country music festival on Sunday night.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, the American composer and playwright of the award-winning play "Hamilton", also took to Twitter to share condolences for people affected by the tragedy in Las Vegas. He said he anticipated getting "substantial information" in the next 48 hours and said he was confident a motive would become clear.
The admission came as part of a statement delivered by her attorney on Wednesday, after the FBI interviewed Danley as part of its investigation into the deadly shooting on Sunday. A reportsaid Tuesday that Paddock had a habit of berating his girlfriend.
Paddock transferred $100,000 to the Philippines in the days before the shooting, the AP reported.
