Simply so, can you keep hotel key cards?
That means, unless you are a passionate collectorof hotel card keys, there is absolutely no reason tokeep the key on checkout. At least, it's way'greener' and more efficient to return and thus reuse keycards to keep the amount of plastic at bay.
Similarly, can you just leave a hotel without checking out? If your hotel doesn't offer an expresscheckout scheme, I would find it rude toleave without checking out, yes. They need to knowwhen you're out of the room for housekeepingpurposes. If you just disappear, the staff may take extratime to contact you with a copy of your bill.
Subsequently, question is, what information is stored on a hotel key card?
A typical key card myth is that cardscontain sensitive user data, such as personal or financialinformation. Fact is, the majority of hotel key cardsstore only room numbers and dates of stay. Additionalinformation that can be stored on a key cardcomes down to four key pieces of information: Roomnumber.
Why do hotels give you two keys?
If you have a friend on another floor who isjoining you (or even outside the hotel and joiningyou in the club) getting a second key savesyou the time of having to meet them at a firm set“minute” in time. Another reason is one keygoing into your wallet (or your purse etc.).
