Beverly Hilton staffers found the bodies of Robert John Egan, 69, and Barbra Regan Wilson Egan, 56, late Friday night on the hotel grounds.
Both were found deceased from apparent gunshot wounds.
After a full investigation, the L.A. County Coroner's Office says the couple died in a "double suicide."
The 39th annual Daytime Emmy Awards went as scheduled Saturday evening at the Beverly Hilton, while police investigated the death of the couple.
The event, which was broadcast live by the HLN cable news channel, honored the best in soap operas and talk shows.
