Ace Hotel, Portland, Oregon

Metal doorhandle bathroom key, Ace Hotel, Portland, Oregon.

This is also a Twitter find, posted by James Refell.  There is an intruiging connection here between the key, tied to a string, and the metal door handle.  It seems as if the proprietors of the Ace Hotel want to maintain some propriety, and keep the key within the door-related family, by attaching it to a door handle.  The key may be restless, as it is moved from patron to patron, but it retains a sense of comfort, knowing that it is tethered to a cousin.  Attaching the key to a lock would be too glaring an attempt at maintaining solidarity between the key and its holder.
