@gollum,
I have been told that since 9/11, the hotel is required to have picture state or federal ID. The hotel may have been lying as they definitely want to know where to send the bill in case of damage or theft.

@gollum,
I don't know whether or not it's illegal. There are situations someone would check into a hotel under a false name. One example would be when someone is paying cash only and is cheating on their significant other, avoiding any paper trail or evidence of their infidelity. Another example would be someone famous that's trying to avoid fans, tabloids, the media, etc. Sometimes famous people just want peace and quiet.

@gollum,
Under certain circumstances it is illegal to book into a hotel in the USA under a false name even if you show id and intend to pay the bill.

And when you check in under a false name, then haul out a .45 and shoot the clerk, too, eh?

What I'm saying (asking) is: What does that have to do with using a false name at a hotel, per se? It's obviously illegal to "buy" anything with a stolen credit card--any time, any place. That law has nothing to do with a hotel, though.

Surely etiquette imperatives proscribe shooting the clerk upon check-in when you have the whole stay which to look forward?

"American numeracy skills were termed “very poor.” The United States outperformed only two comparison countries: Italy and Spain. Nearly one in three Americans scored near the bottom in numeracy. That Americans were slightly below average in problem solving using computers was especially discouraging."

I take issue with that! Every red-blooded American knows, just for example, how much a shitload is. Limeys aint got no clue.

We're also more better in formulating concise sentences that aint redundant and don't just go around sayin the same damn thing twice, all over again, for the second time, and ****, ya know?

@layman,
Should we get a room?

I've made a new card using your pic.

Best if I do the booking if it's on-line.

@usery,
Who's bringin the .45? Never mind, I got that part covered.

As for the card, well, ya know....After I had filled my pick-up bed with lumber, I handed that man my credit card. He said: "Layman, I can't take this, that aint your name on this card." I said, "Well, that's cool, homey, I'll just write you a check, then...He said: "Layman, everybody know your checks aint no good. Cash, mofo"

I said: "Sho nuff. I'll run home and get the cash for you..how much was it again?" He said: "$3227.68" And ya know what? That fool let me drive on away, with the lumber still in my truck. The chump.

Point is, that pic is too well-known now to be useful. I got new ID cards now. And I'll have a new one next month, too. I sell my old ones cheap, if you're interested.

@CalamityJane,
I read that Chelsea Clinton uses an assumed name to check into hotels.

@gollum,
So? What if she does? As you were advised, it's a legal thing to do.

If I'm not grossly mistaken, where her parents are both lawyers with advanced legal degrees, she knows the law. I'm sure she knows what is legal and what is not. I just looked up her education and she recently graduated from Oxford in International global governance structures with a focus on global health. Do you think she'd be dumb enough to take any risk breaking the law over a desire for some privacy?
