Hotels let guest chose their own arrival and departure times

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

It's a typical traveler conundrum, being kicked out of a hotel room before you really want to leave the hotel because of checkout times.

On the flip side, it's frustrating to arrive to your hotel and have to wait to get your room because it's not check-in time yet.

Now a small, but growing, number of hotels are relaxing the check in and check out policies to better suit guests by offering full 24 hour stays.

So, if you arrive at 7 p.m., you would not have to check out until 7 p.m. the following day.

The Ritz Carlton in Charlotte, N.C. has coined the promotion Stay and Play 24. In Los Angeles, the Penninsula allows you to pick your check in time and check out anytime the next day, even if its more than 24 hours later.

Boutique hotel The Clarendon, in Phoenix, is offering 24 hour says and so is the Sheraton Four Points at LAX.

Some travelers may question whether the hotels can handle the logistics of custom arrivals and departures but hotel industry expert Daniel Lesser of LW Hspitality Advisors says that if the 24 hour stay proves to be popular in the hotels that are testing it, we could see more hotels follow suit.

"If the economics work you will see more follow suit but the question is, do the economics work," Lesser says.
