Do you have to check out of a hotel or can you just leave?
Most hotels require that travelers check out by 11 a.m.
or noon so housekeepers have time to clean rooms for the next guest.
Be sure you know the deadline at your hotel so you can plan accordingly.
If you need a little extra time, call the front desk as far in advance as you can and see if they can accommodate you.
Can you leave without checking out?
Many hotels now can simply email you a copy of the bill as well. If your hotel doesn’t offer an express checkout scheme, I would find it rude to leave without checking out, yes. They need to know when you’re out of the room for housekeeping purposes.
What happens if you don’t check out of a hotel on time?
If you find that the check-out time is entirely too early for you, you can always ask for a late check-out when you arrive for your vacation. It may cost extra, but again, if you’ve built a nice relationship with one of the staff, you may be able to get that fee waived free of charge.
Can you leave hotel keys in room?
You can certainly leave your room key in your guest room upon departure. No need to stop at the front desk for check out.
