Booking room for two people when not checking with 2 people...

Recommended Posts

I was about ready to book my hotel in Bangkok using my United points that have sat unused for years but ran into an issue I'm not sure how to handle.

Do you book for one person?  I left it as a room for 2 people at the Landmark and I'm being asked for name of the second person.  Not sure what to do there besides booking it as 1 person.   The cost to book the room is no different but not sure if I'll have issues there.

Leave it blank. Or put this in the field:

First Name: My    

Last Name: Friend

Can't leave it blank on united so I tried putting my name again but that didn't work hah.   But yeah I guess I can just do something like "My Friend" instead hah

If the Landmark is girl friendly (i.e. allows guests), they won't care.  If the hotel is not girl friendly, you might want to find another hotel.

Edit: just did a quick Google search and found that the Landmark is indeed guest friendly.  You'll be okay.

If you want a better experience with your "date"... read, learn, live the following:

Isn't hotels for air miles a bad deal compared to tickets?

I've never worried about booking hotels, especially in low season

Considering the sheer number of freelancers that sit outside the Landmark's coffee shop they would have a cheek to  charge a joiner fee!

Same with me, but if they insist it's Mrs (your last name)

If the receptionist asks me where my wife is, I simply say I haven't met her yet. Always works!!

I think if you book for two, you get two breakfast coupons instead of one if breakfast is included

Same goes for Agoda.com Never had to fill in more than my own name.

Use the second one as a tip to last nights girlfriend, show her you are a real big spender :)

I always book for two and have never been asked for the info on the second one, unless she is with me.   I would just tell them I have two girlfriends here and not sure which one will stay, but it will only be one. What can they say

If probably is the law though

Never been asked for my guest name at any hotel that is guest friendly

most simply you do not need, and you book just mark in 2 on the booking request and you are laughing  and don't stress.

+ 1.       If it is a stupid United website requirement (and EVERYTHING about any aspect of any United product or service is exactly that!!!), just make up a name (Noi-fairly common) and hope you find a Noi to barfine.  Seriously though, I would just make up a name to get around it, no one at hotel will even know or care

If it's 'United' related then they might drag you out of the hotel and throw out on the street if you show up with the incorrect person listed on your reservation

You could be right but I haven't used my united points for anything else because it never seems to work out for flights unless you book way in advance.  I might as well use it for something :)

I feel like that's usually the case but United's website wants a name.  I just didn't think of doing something as simple as Mrs my last name or whatever like others have suggested

Also, tell her you plan to be holding a lot of interviews for the position over the next few days.
