    Do yall call ahead and confirm your reservation if you know you'll be arriving very late at night/early AM technically the day after your reservation? Or will it just be a waste of time as it's not likely to be the same person at the desk later on?

    I always arrive late and I have never called to confirm. I print out my confirmation just in case but I stay at Harrahs properties and have never had a problem. Flight are cheaper for me if I take a late evening flight.

    Can't hurt to call.. if it's going to be after midnight you might want to, might cancel your reservation? But people arrive at all hours it seems!

    Depends on what time of day your going to get there.

    I worked night audit at a hotel for a year, if it is a comp they can cancel your room.

    If it is fully paid and guaranteed they can not.

    I would still call just for them to mark it as a late arrival and ask for room assignment when you call, them saying they can't is a crock of bs btw.

    My last few flights have landed late, like 10:30 at night. I always call the day before to confirm my reservations and to tell them what time I should be arriving. I figure a 5 min call could save an hours worth of trouble later on.

    Bingo! Odds are good you'll be fine. But what's the harm of making a quick call to have them note "late check in"? Nothing would piss me off more than arriving at midnight and having to argue/plead/beg/wait just to get the room I'd booked.

    I'm a big fan of the late arrival call. I have been marked as a "no show" too many times. As others before me have said, it can save a ton of trouble.

    I've done plenty of those flights out of ATL, I've never called but as others have said it can't hurt. My rooms are not comped.

    A late check in got us one of our best upgrades. After arriving in Vegas we went to Barbary Coast for the late night breakfast special and a little gambling before checking in at Ballly's. It was probably 3:00 am Vegas time before we checked in. They gave us a huge two room suite with a large jacuzzi tub, a walk-in shower that seperated 'his' side of the batroom from 'her' side, robes, etc. We liked the room so much we picked up pizza and a six pack of beer to enjoy in the tub.

    No upgrades since.

    Lucky - when my husband and I arrived late into MGM once we got the crappiest room ever. They were apparently sold out and even though I called before hand, it was awful.

    My husband last weekend arrived at around 11pm and got a nice room at NYNY on the 22nd floor...I called ahead that time as well. My flight next month is the same one, you can bet I'll be calling Mirage ahead of time just in case.

    If I'm arriving after 10 pm, I'll call and request late check in. This applies to every stay, not just in Vegas.

    We stay at CET properties on comps and if we're going to be arriving after 2200, we will always call. I don't think it's enough to just call to say you're arriving late, though. We call and ask to have a room that we want blocked for us, basically checking us in before we even get there, so they can't put us in the "leftovers" when we do arrive.

    I would call sometime that day... probably from airport before you leave, not the day before.

    As to thinking you will talk to the same on duty clerk.... rare since they often have a dozen people working at the same time. Just hope they put a note in the system so the mgr/supr does not decide to bump you or something.
