Picture this. You are on your way to a vacation you’ve been looking forward to for months. You’ve got it all planned out and can’t wait to get to your destination. You hit the road early, make great time, and arrive at your hotel well before check-in time. You want to get to your room and relax, but check-in time isn’t for a few more hours. What happens now? The best thing to do is to ask ahead of time for an early check in. As hard as they try, most front desk associates aren’t mind readers, so unless they receive a special request from a guest, they aren’t able to prepare accordingly. Follow us on the journey as we discover how early check-in requests are handled.
A hotel receives an early check-in request from a guest. Whoohoo! A chance to make a guest’s day by allowing them a few extra hours of relaxation. Why wouldn’t we jump in the air with excitement and say yes every time? As much as that would delight us, there are many factors that go into being able to honor those requests.
Low and behold the fates are on your side today, and we are able to get you that early check in you requested. Happy guest, happy staff, happy life. That’s a saying, right? Keep in mind, an early check in can never be guaranteed, but we will work hard to make them happen. If you’re willing to
be flexible, it never hurts to ask for one. It also never hurts to ask for a framed picture of Morgan Freeman on your nightstand in case you don’t like to travel with yours. But remember, you have to ask, because most of us are not mind readers!
