Some properties use keys while some have electronic key cards that look like credit cards and can be encoded with information for each individual guest. Whichever you use, the keys or a key card will be located at Reception where they are easily accessible to the Receptionist and the guest.

A card key is inserted into a slot in the door. Once inside the room, the guest may also need to insert the card key into a slot/device on the wall to activate the power in the room.
