I've recently learned that the word "accommodations" means more than a simple stay at a hotel. They are willing to do extra things for you in order to get your business. One option is to request early check in. They generally won't guarantee it, but they will try to make it work for you. More hours added to your stay without extra charge? Yes, please, especially since I'd really like to sneak in a nap and a shower once I arrive (after driving all night). We can go elsewhere, but I'd rather not wait until 3:00 or 4:00 to check in. They said they would do whatever they can to make it happen. I guess the moral of the story is just ask if you want or need something extra. Even if it's not a sure thing, they will apparently try to go the extra mile.
