For me, this is one of the best things I can see on a hotel door:
|All hotel doors should have a lock like this in my book|
A lock that I can use to stop people with the same key entering the room.
I used to just like them. Then a few years back I saw that film Derailed in which Clive Owen and Jennifer Aniston's characters are getting it on in a hotel room and someone breaks into the room. As the bad guy points out, they should have put the chain on the door. Not just used the lock. Anyone with a key could get in.
And these days, with electronic doors opened by bits of plastic I find it even more comforting when I can push across that extra lock or put on that chain.
So how about you? Do you also find it a little unnerving when hotel rooms are missing this tiny piece of metal?
