I'm a platinum SPG member and the Sheraton won't give me 4pm late checkout which is fine but they won't even give me noon checkout. If I checkout at 12 instead of 11:30 will they charge me?

Usually you can just stay a little longer as long as housekeeping isn't in a rush to clean the room

Which is basically why I don't stay at Sheratons anymore. A polished turd in the rough of mid tier motels.

Call at 11:30 and say you need an extra half hour. Last minute minor requests usually work.

I usually just leave when I feel like leaving, or when they start calling the room. Never had an extra charge or an issue.

Probably.

Yeah, exactly. I always abuse late check out. Worst case scenario, tell that you don't feel well and they'll usually be nice

Just don't check out until 12pm. No way they'll charge you. Many times, I just walk out of the hotel and let it automatically check me out. There's a disconnect between front desk check out and house keeping coming around to clean the room

Possession is 9/10ths of the law.
