Where I park my scooter at work I always put a cover over it (as Machog said, "out of sight, out of mind"), and the cover locks on with a Bulldog U-bolt lock through the front wheel. The scooter has plenty of storage and the lock fits under the seat. Since in order to remove the cover I have to unbolt the lock, I've not forgotten it and ridden away. Sure, it takes a little extra time, but if you do it every time it becomes routine.
I've heard that steering column locks can be overcome with force.
Also, I used to carry a Lever Lock ... locks the front clutch to the handlebar so it can't be operated. I've used it on another bike. Pretty small and again it's right there so you can't operate the bike without removing it. That's what scares me about those small disc locks - they're so easy to miss or forget about, and it can mess up your bike.
Also, although it seems safe and easy, I'd not recommend parking a motorcycle inside a hotel room. All sorts of fire codes being violated when you do that.
