(Assuming the price is similar, and I'd covering the extra hotel nights)

I've done it before and if the price is similar I don't see the problem.

If cost is not higher I dont see the problem so long as u dont ask for extended hotel stay. Did something similar where I asked to be flown out the day before in the morning. Told them I just wanted to explore the place I would have to live in and they respected it.

In-House legal/talent recruiters completely ghosting during the interview process-- What gives? It's happened a disturbing number of times during my job hunt. They ghost after requesting an initial interview. They canceled an interview 10 minutes beforehand and then ghosted. They ghosted after saying I'd interview with the hiring manager. I get that the position was either filled or there were changed circumstances, but maybe some courtesy/professionalism toward the applicants? Be better.
