9. Mention special occasions
Travelling for a big birthday or anniversary? Make sure you tell the hotel in advance, and “ask them for a nice room to celebrate in,” say Hotels.com.
“Telling them in advance gives them the chance to assign a set room and you may find a bottle of Champagne waiting,” they adde.
And, if you’re calling with a special request, make sure you do it early in the morning, or in the afternoon. “Don’t call the hotel between 10am and 1pm with a special request, as the chances are they’ll have a long line of guests waiting to check out,” they add.
