Dear techno..guy: don't you think it would be better if hotels would just put those peepholes lower down on the door?
The peepholes are of dubious value anyway. They're actually dangerous since they give a false sense of security. The best method, regardless of if you can see or not, is what I described. As Christina noted, it's very easy to fake hotel name tags etc. Man or woman, tall or short, peephole or not, don't open the door to unexpected knocks.
This is what I personally would do if I ever got an unexpected knock, which I haven't.
If you believe peepholes are the best method, I'd recommend advocating for 2 per door, one at the standard 5.5' and one at a lower height, say 3.5'.
