Some will do it if you call. Alternatively if you can find one near a friend (or have a friend that would use the room) you can add his or her name and they can check in

Yes, but will pay for that room so best go there with hookers and blow and make it worthwhile

No, that will most likely not work.

No they need ID to check you in all the way. You’d likely just get a cancellation fee with your idea

@c1 thanks for the tip!
