There's no indication that OP has Starriott/Bonvoy status.

If 4 pm checkout is guaranteed, what's wrong with fighting for it?

BTW I just noticed that this is one of those "not guaranteed if arrive after 6 pm" reservations, which would seem (I hope) to be another IT problem. I also hope the OP is OK with a smoking room.
