Schedule change causes 26hr layover

My family will be flying IAD-SIN this summer connecting in BKK Hong Kong. Booked in J with AA miles. Originally scheduled to leave Wednesday night at 1am, arriving Thursday at noon in SIN. I got an email about flight change and that we will leave now a day earlier, Tuesday night. I didn't pay attention to the arrival date and just noticed that it stayed the same, Thursday, which means we will have a ~26hr layover in HKK. Before I call them I wanted to hear what options I have. Wouldnt they need to provide for a hotel in such a case? If there is no award space on the flight from HKK-SIN the day earlier, can I demand to be put in paid J?
The other option is to use this opportunity and explore HKK, since we probably wont be able to get to Asia anytime soon. Would it make sense to explore the city even though we'll be jet lagged and with the current political situation? I guess I can check the travel forum as well.
Thank you!
