Hello can anyone recommend a hotel with a late check out (around 5.pm) either Santa Monica or another area close to transport we fly out at 9.30pm.
Many hotels will allow for late check out with a $79-$129 fee.
There are no hotels that allow that late of a check out without charging - none.
A lot of hotels if you stay at when you check out and your not going to stay another night will hold your stuff for you..until you leave.. If you ask.. I have stayed at many hotels in la and left way after check out sometimes even 11pm and i ask them if they wilk hold it for me.. I have not encounter a problem in doing that...as long as you stayed at that hotel..
Many hotels will give you a ticket so when you come back you can retrieve your stuff alot if hotels do that if you arrive to early and room is not ready they will hold your stuff too.. I usually stay at bestwestern or a choice hotel property ..stayed at the holiday inn and a marriots and few others in la never had any problems with a hotel i stayed at leave my stuff after i checked out thean came back and got it when i was ready to go..
If you stay at a hotel with a spa, like Loews or Fairmont, you can shower before your flight. It's true that most hotels will hold your bags until you are ready to leave for the airport. Just tip them.
The latest we have ever got has been 2:00 with a package. If you have American Express Platinum and book through them, a late check-out (4:00) is included as one of the amenities. :)
Thanks everyone I will ask if we can pay extra for late checkout it would be nice to have a shower before our long flight.
What hotel are you planning to stay at? Yes it is good to ask...usually from my experience with late check out is 1 or 2 pm after that they charge a fee or charge for another night...
