I was in Seattle once and I opened my wallet and all my cash was gone. Never could figure that one out.

I went shopping and found an American Tourister waist security pouch that will carry my passport, money, and any required ID cards that I might have to have at the time. It’s large enough for those items but small enough to wear under my shirt without being noticed or uncomfortable. Only $7 bucks too, any other items like the need to be secured in the room might still be a problem. Not all hotels have in room safes so I might look for a padlock to put on the luggage that will help deter cleaning staff from messing with my items….. (Can’t have the lock on the luggage while it’s at the airport but I can use it while at the hotel.)
