All the Hotels That Offer Late Checkout So You Can Relax
Sometimes the best part of a vacation is sitting back and relaxing in the comfort of your hotel room. The only problem is most hotels — no matter how many stars they have — make you check out at the most uncomfortable times. Noon might be acceptable since it gives you plenty of time to grab breakfast, but who wants to be packed and ready to go by 10 or 11 in the morning?
While you can take inspiration from Friends by pulling a Ross and not checking out until the last possible second, most of you will probably just go down earlier, leaving you with even less time in the space. Why not eliminate this frustrating travel problem by exploring the extra accommodating hotels below that offer guests a late checkout starting at 3 p.m.. This is a game changer, especially if you’re not a morning person.
NIZUC Resort & Spa
If you think staying through the afternoon is a treat, this resort in Cancún — we consider one of the best in the world — provides rooms until later in the day for an extra charge if available. That’s basically like getting an extra day for a spa treatment or more quality time by the pool.
Jumeirah Creekside Hotel
Beyond getting an amazing view of Dubai’s city skyline, anyone staying here can come and go as they please. This means there’s no more waiting around for your room to be ready or rushing to leave. With the hotel’s 24-hour stay service, travelers can conveniently choose their check-in and check-out times at no additional cost by providing 48 hours of notice. If that’s not a dream come true, we don’t know what is.
Playa Hotels & Resorts
With 20 all-inclusive locations throughout Mexico and the Caribbean, you have plenty to choose from as they all let you stay as late as 6 p.m. This is hands down a solid way to get your money’s worth.
Situated in lush greenery right outside of São Paulo, this is the Brazilian break you’re looking for. In keeping with the stress-free environment of the 75 acres of land filled with gardenias and lavender, all visitors are welcome to stay up to 4 p.m.
The popular brand is getting rid of the dated 11 a.m. checkout. Through their “Save and Stay Late” fall promotion in New Orleans and Texas, you’ll instantly get a 3 p.m. checkout with your reservation along with a 25 percent discount at local partner restaurants and $20 credit.
11 Cadogan Gardens
Another one made for late sleepers, this cozy London destination has a “Sunday Lie-In” deal which gives you the chance to stay in bed through late afternoon. It’s all thanks to — you guessed it — their late 4 p.m. checkout.
Grand Isle Resort & Spa
Island life is supposed to take relaxation to a new level, so it makes sense that this tropical paradise in the Bahamas would want people to take it easy with a late 4 p.m. checkout. You just have to remember to call in-advance and set it up with the hotel before you arrive.
Far East Hospitality Hotels
You know what they say, "you get what you pay for." Those who reserve a superior or deluxe room at this company’s participating hotels in Singapore are gifted more time with their accommodations. However, it’s only valid for mailing list subscribers, so remember to sign up beforehand if you want to keep your room until 4 p.m.
Hard Rock Hotels
Go ahead, live like a rockstar at the Hard Rock and have no regrets by partying all night long. Well, at least at their Goa, Panama Megapolis and Las Vegas chains where guests can stay in their rooms until 4 p.m. by request.
American Express Platinum Card Experience
The benefits of the coveted AMEX traveler’s card isn’t limited to Centurion Lounge access or exclusive dibs on their By Invitation Only events, it also gives you a leg up at 975 properties worldwide. If none of the places above work with your travel plans, it might be worth having the platinum card in your wallet as it always guarantees you a 4 p.m. checkout at all their partner hotels.
