I have had enough bad experiences at terrible airport hotels to not just do it myself.
this is another option - especially if you have travel insurance. As long as itís not an illegal connection, or something like that, travel insurance through a card will almost certainly reimburse you as long as you provide the relevant details (as well as for meals). Also means you can avoid waiting in line at the airport for a voucher.

this. Especially in weather, you may need to take what you can get. In most cities, itís not even in UAs best interest to do that, unless they have some place in the far flung suburbs.
