Always review your reservation details before arriving at the hotel. Ensure if the dates, room type and any special requests made, are accurate.
Familiarise yourself with the hotel's policies, such as check-in/check-out times, cancellation policies, and any additional fees.
Ensure that you're aware of the accepted payment methods and whether the hotel requires a security deposit or pre-authorisation on your credit card.
Double-check the room before leaving. It's easy to forget items in drawers, closets, and bathrooms, so ensure you've packed everything.
Before checking out, take a few minutes to inspect the room for damages or cleanliness issues. If you notice anything amiss, notify the front desk.
Don't leave the check-out process for the last minute. Plan to check out a bit earlier than the official check-out time to avoid unnecessary stress.
