BEFORE YOU GO:
Research hotels, checking amenities and not just price. Be flexible on the dates if possible.
For example, business class hotels often have lower weekend rates.
Confirm the check-out time and amenities. Get a card with the hotel’s name, address and phone number for cab drivers.
Some hotels provide extra services not listed on their websites such as laundry service, hair dryers, voltage converters or adaptors, business services, portable beds, baby cribs, shuttle service to the airport, rental safe for your valuables, tour and excursion discounts.
BEFORE CHECKING OUT:
Check the room thoroughly so you don’t leave anything behind.
Need extra time for check-out? Request it in advance or the hotel may charge you an additional night.
