I know communication between properties and Club Carlson Gold Points isn't the best, so I figured I'd ask here first before I tried to orchestrate it. I land in Frankfurt early in the morning. I was planning on using points at the Park Inn, but since I have the Club Carlson card, I get one night free. So I booked the night before I land, and the night afterwards. My goal is to be able to check in at 7am so we can check in, shower, drop our bags off, and explore Frankfurt. I've done this before with other hotel programs, but my fear with Club Carlson is that since communication tends to not be that great in their program, once I don't check in by midnight, the entire reservation will be cancelled. My plan is to contact the property directly (and hope someone speaks English), but wanted to get some experiences / impressions of this first. Thanks everyone!
