Arthur Frommer: Hotel staggers shifts for early check-ins

We all know the situation — and the dilemma. You've arrived at your airport destination at an ultra-early hour, say 6:30 a.m., after an overnight flight. You then arrive at your hotel at 8 a .m., exhausted, craving to take a fast nap or yearning to shower and change clothes. The hotel advises, reluctantly, that you can't check in until 2 p.m. All the rooms are still occupied, and those that aren't have yet to be cleaned and made ready by the chambermaid staff.
