    Me, neither -- safe looks a little different and is completely unresponsive to all zeroes.

    I do in a few circumstances.
    • If I'm out of the country (but in a friendly western country), I usually just lock up my passport in the safe - along with any USD I have me as well as an extra credit card. More just so that I don't lose the passport than anything else.
    • My wife has one or two particular pieces of jewelry that we don't leave out at hotels - though sometimes we put in safe at front desk. (Which we forgot to re-claim once at the MO-NYC! They called us!)
    Against that, I don't think I've ever had anything stolen from a hotel room that I was in.

    Same here, always when we had used the safe so far // which we do at all times, does not matter in which country we are in // we had nothing stolen out of our hotel rooms!

    Well maybe it's the pessimist in me, but I never let anything out of my sight that I don't want to lose.

    Passport, ID, cash and credit cards are almost always with me, unless it's just absolutely necessary that I leave it behind for some reason. Again, the last thing I want is to need to leave and not be able to do that because my passport is not on my person.

    I have two close friends that actually got into altercations with hotel staff in Mexico (this year) and Aruba (a few years back) where they were actually locked out of the rooms, on purpose. Being in a foreign country with your passport being held hostage by someone you just had an argument with is not necessarily a position that I want to find myself in.

    And maybe it's just my attitude, or the fact that I like to be ready to leave at a moment's notice if something goes wrong, but "I have to get back to the hotel to get xyz" in the event of an emergency is not something that I want to end up doing either.

    I use the safe all the time, for my MacBook Air if it fits (which it doesn't at the hotel I am right now), my iPad, my passport, spare credit cards, money, ...

    I don't want to take all that stuff with me when I

    - go for breakfast/dinner in the hotel restaurant/club
    - walk around town sightseeing
    - goto the hotel pool/gym
    - ...

    and I certainly don't wan to leave it just sitting around in the room readily grabbable for anyone who walks into the room (eg someone who accidentally gets *my* room assigned by the front desk)

    I think my chances of getting mugged on the street or me forgetting my bag somewhere are much greater than getting into an altercation with hotel staff resulting in getting thrown out of the hotel without my stuff.

    Again, I think I'll be at greater risk of not being able to leave because of a lost/stolen passport than because I can't make it back to the hotel.

    On occasion.

    It's great for stashing bath products you like.
