Most hotel check-outs are pretty standard.
It dings 10am, you load up your suitcase with as much shampoo, dental floss, toilet paper and hand towels as possible (as if you haven’t done the same), then leave before turndown service shows up.
Well, Melbourne’s Arts Series hotels are shaking things up for the next two months. They’re running something called ‘The World’s Latest Checkout’. It’s a promo that lets you potentially stay another hour in your room...or two hours...or seven. Maybe a whole extra night.
Here’s how it works. Book any room at any Arts Series hotel between now and 19 September. The next morning, before you check out, call the front desk. If there’s no-one booked for that room on that day, you can keep staying there! And the next day, if no-one shows up. As long as the room is free, it’s yours. You can check-out whenever you want.
Basically, you keep trying your luck till they tell you to get the hell out.
Obviously, there are some strategies you can use. Weekends are probably gonna be booked solid, so you won’t get much. But maybe a Sunday night stay? How many people book hotel rooms on a Monday, really?
If you want to read all the fine print, head here. We hope you enjoy your stay.
