Something is missing

Something is missing from this story. How did the woman obtain entry to the room? Was she an employee?

Interesting

When I stay in a hotel I always employ the chain on the door. Maybe this is a lesson learned. I also question how there was more than one key available to the room unless someone has learned how to "hack" the cards used for door keys nowadays.

Seriously, who doesn't use

Seriously, who doesn't use the security latch even in a Five Star.
Unless, the visitor was staff; perhaps she had visited earlier and enhanced his sleep.

Clarity?

Hotel rooom theft? Who steals hotel rooms? Is there a black market for hotel rooms? I would seem difficult to conceal a hotel room, I wonder if the authorities checked the local pawn shops for stolen hotel rooms?

444 Broad has a bad reputation... those HEI folks better keep an eye out to make sure none of their rooms are stolen.
