FWIIW I instruct my hotels to begin checking due outs at 8:30am weekdays and 9am weekends. 90% of guests do not check out with the FD.
Note to self: NEVER stay at his hotels. When I have a 4 pm checkout, hotel staff should never violate my DND sign before 4 pm (or whatever time was negotiated, as a few wonderful Hyatts are willing to let Globs keeps rooms beyond 4 pm when possible, for example if the guest is departing on an evening flight).

This proves my point about hotels instructing their housekeepers and other staff not to honor DND signs. It's disgusting that management could condone this (or set a bad example of how subordinates should not behave toward customers).
