Changing technology has hotels looking beyond the traditional plastic key card as a way to unlock guest-room doors.

The Plaza Hotel in New York, now closed for renovation, will open later this year with radio-frequency cards that unlock the door when swiped past the lock at close range. Paper cards, cellphones, fingerprints and iris scans are popping up as alternative unlocking devices.

Curious if this possible trend of using biometrics bothers anyone out there?

Nope. I think it is a good idea. Should be used for many more things like credit cards and such. Will shut the ID thieves cold!
