OK, you don’t even have to be a lawyer to help me out here. I have an advanced purchase booking for a Priority Club property in California this weekend which apparently makes a habit of photocopying ID’s at check-in, even of guests paying with credit cards.
Obviously I find this to be unacceptable and unnecessary, but based on the reports I’ve heard, this hotel doesn’t budge. I’ll make a scene if I have to, and as a matter of principle will under no circumstance let them photocopy my ID. I’ll be arriving late at night, so chances are that there won’t be anyone in a position of power around.
So, can anyone arm me with the tools needed to put up a fight? Who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky and they’ve reconsidered this stance in the meantime, but I think it would be nice to be “armed” should the need occur, and I think this is an interesting topic in general (along with credit card minimum purchases, photo ID when using a credit card at many establishments, etc.).
