It can be worth making a reservation for yourself during bad IROPs that will affect a lot of passengers. Sometimes you can grab a room at a good hotel on points or for a reasonable rate if you do it quickly. Personally I like just to have the control if the cancellation penalty won't be huge. Also, for business travel, the employer should reimburse anything reasonable in the circumstances, although of course it's good to know the policy in advance.
