Skift Take

Improving user experience above all else in the new smart trend in hospitality, hope it catches on more widely.

A growing number of hotels are granting travelers a reprieve from the oppressive 11 a.m. checkout on Sundays, when they have fewer guests checking in to take over their rooms…Hotel managers say the service has been popular among travelers who often gripe about paying for a night, but not getting a full 24 hours….Sunday is the ideal day to allow guests to linger longer, because more rooms will likely stay empty overnight.

Experts say it’s a way for hotels to distinguish themselves from competitors and attract repeat customers. Many hotel companies, including InterContinental Hotels Group and Starwood, allow late checkouts for their most loyal customers.
