can a hotel do fire evacuation drill without getting the guests consent and without giving any notice?

Yes, they can, and they do. A couple of years ago, all the guests at a hotel I was in had to leave their rooms and congregate outside the building. It was a fire evacuation drill. We were not given any warning, but were obliged to obey all instructions, and so we did.

I’m pretty sure the fire department decides this and runs the drill.

The point of a drill is that it's done without prior notice, so the hotel can ensure that in a real scenario their evacuation plans work.
Fire drills require no notice or consent.

Yes, they can. Permission from the guests isn't required at all.

I don't know the legal answer to this, but I would think so, yes. In Illinois, schools are actually required to do a certain number of fire drills where the staff and students aren't allowed to know. The point of the drill is to make sure the safety precautions are properly put into place and being implemented properly. Again, I don't know the exact laws on hotels, and it may vary by state, but my guess would be that it is legal.
