1251 Can I check in before or check out after the official times set by my hotel? 2016/12/29
Each hotel has specific official check-in and check-out times (see the hotel's details page or your booking confirmation email), and you may not be allowed to check in earlier or check out later than these times depending on the hotel. Some hotels offer "Early Check-in" or "Late Check-out" plans, so if you are planning to arrive early or stay late, you may want to look for such plans.

Please also note that if you arrive earlier than the official check-in time, while many hotels will hold your luggage until you can check in, some hotels may not offer this service (same for after check-out). If you would like the hotel to hold your luggage before you check in or after you check-out, please contact the accommodation facility directly ahead of time to confirm.
