A hotel employee has revealed how customers can get a free night’s stay, shuttle service and more on their next stay.
According to an influential travel social media account @Hotel_Hacks_, the closer a customer shows up to a hotel near midnight, the more likely they are to get some on their next stay. free service, free one night stay at the hotel… So, why can’t customers get free that night but have to wait until the next vacation?
The reason is that the later you arrive, the more likely you are to be “free” by the hotel next time
@Hotel_Hacks_ explains: “When it’s peak season for hotels, we often fall into oversold conditions, which leads to guests showing up, but we don’t have any spare rooms.”
“So what happens? We have to move them to another hotel in the same segment or higher. We will pay to move you to that hotel. If you stay there more than two nights, you will get We promise many special services for your next stay with us.
She added: “The only downside is that sometimes the other hotel can be an hour’s drive from the original hotel or… near the airport, where you’ve landed. This also often happens during high season. more points”.
An industry insider also agreed: “Very true. I’ve been a night audit (in front desk) for over 10 years and have had to refer many guests to other hotels in the LA Beverly Hills area.”

Overall, this is a fun way to enjoy the service at your preferred hotel. However, this trick is unlikely to be widely applicable when the hotel only has to send its customers to another hotel in situations of extreme “reciprocity”. In addition, it will also be inconvenient for visitors if only because of some free services (it is unlikely that they will be awarded) but have to wait until midnight to arrive at the accommodation facility.
