Ah, I guess that would make sense, to hand something out to use as a room key when you check in. This may make it more confusing, though for some guests, to have their SeaPass card and a room key. ...

I'm not familiar with O'Hare, but I would guess it's the domestic terminal, since your first flight is a domestic flight.
