1. Did you know that you can request an early check-in or late checkout without an additional cost most of the time? Yes, you can either write/call the hotel in advance and ask for an early check-in (they usually grant this providing they have a room available) and then for a late checkout you can ask the front desk a day before (or the same day of) your departure (usually granted for a couple extra hours without any additional costs). If an early check-in or late checkout are not possible, the hotel will most likely accept to keep your luggage in the meantime. In summary: Simply ask for what you want/need, and in most situations, the hotel will accommodate you.
2. Did you know that you can request a bathrobe and/or bedroom slippers (or other personal items) at no additional cost? Yes, when you don't see what you need in your room, you can either call or go to the front desk and if they have them, they will provide them to you right away. In summary: No need to be shy....you can ask, and they will most likely have what you need.
3. Did you know that many hotels have discounts on breakfast prices if you did not include breakfast in your reservation? Yes, if you wish to have breakfast at the hotel (let's say for convenience a couple times during your stay), you can ask the front desk if they have discounts (sometimes the discounts are as high as 50%). In summary: If you do not want to pay the high, full breakfast prices, you can ask for a discount and they will often have it ready and waiting for you, even though they did not offer it to you upon check in.
