My passport had to be presented and was copied in many locations, including Thailand and China, although I do not remember if it needed to be included in the reservation. However, I made a reservation for my sister over the summer at the Prague Sheraton. She had dropped off the phone and I did not have their passport numbers. The agent knew we were going to call back to add those. A few hours later the hotel manager sent an email stating the numbers needed to be in the reservation and needed to match what was presented at check-in, so I know for sure that at least for the Prague Sheraton the information needed to be included in the reservation.
