Dcros9999 - that key less lock is a fantastic idea.
I brought up the topic because of personal experience and other hostesses and guests bringing it up at times in a conversation. I like to hear from guests of their past experiences.
Personally I'm flexible with guests check-in and check-out time when it's possible.
When you've checked out from a hotel in the past and left your bags there. You still had to come back and get them.
If the leaving guest is using that service (luggage service) they don't need to come back (while I've got my Mrs. Doubtfire going with cleaning gear and blasting music).
I guess it is a convenience factor for the guest leaving. They can go and explore your city, town, what have you and don't have to worry about their luggage.
I compare it to when you come off a cruise in the early morning hours and your flight back home is not until the evening. Cruise lines doesn't offer storage service so people have to drag their luggage with them where ever they decide to go in the mean time.
Anyways, I heard about it and thought, why not share it here.
May you all have a blessed day.
