You're tired, stressed and desperately yearn for a hot shower and to stretch your legs on a comfortable bed.
Or maybe you need to get the laptop out of the bag and quickly get to work on the report the boss is waiting for.
But when you get to the hotel, the front desk clerk sheepishly tells you the room is not ready yet!

La Quinta Way
But hotel chain La Quinta promises a different way.
La Quinta has rolled out a new service called "Ready For You" that'll send you an e-mail or text the moment your room is ready.
The service is available only for those booking on the hotel chain's web site LQ.com.
When you make the hotel booking, you can pick a time window of arrival at the hotel and opt to receive an e-mail or text when the room is ready.
Here's how Ready For You is said to work:
There are 830 La Quinta branded hotels offering 84,000 rooms in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
