  1. But the remote control bit doesn't make sense… okay it's facing the wrong way, but it's not gonna twiddle your neighbours TV since IR (light) doesn't go through walls… and if its an RF (radio) remote, then the direction it's facing doesn't matter. Either way, that one was a fail.

  2. I'm a consultant. I stay in hotels more than at home. I always get 2 keys. I've frequently had 1 fail. I've also learned to tell them how many nights I'm staying if they don't verify it first. When they don't verify the number of nights, I frequently get a key that only works for 2 days.

  3. Didn't find it all that amusing. The "other" is for things like vouchers, direct billing etc. Also, the reason they give you that disparaging/judgey look is because 9 times out of 10 single occupants ask for 1 key…and lose it. So front desk has to make another (rather than just asking for 2-which is standard for most places). The number of times I've had people tell me 1 only to come back within 2 hours for a replacement is mind boggling.

  4. I like when people ask for one key because it means I don't have to make as many keys. But I've had several smart allecks ask for 30 or 40 keys. I've learned the best way to handle that is to actually go like I'm going to make that many keys; that way they don't get the satisfaction of seeing me falter. As for "other payment", could be direct billing a company or using an airline voucher.

  5. I'm a hotel receptionist and I've worked at multiple hotels in the past and at those hotels the amount of keys we give out depends on how many people are staying in the room. If you're alone then sorry but you're only getting one key. For obvious reasons. And if there's kids staying with adults, then the amount of keys is depending on how old the kids are. Keys are not given to anyone under 12. In these cases the adult might get an extra key so they can leave the room for smoke etc. and leave one key in the room so that there's electricity and light. But maybe it's just this country's policy because abroad I've had receptionists ask me how many keys I'd like to have. 🀷
