I have a short 48 hour hotel stay in Massachusetts. My girlfriend already lives there, and wants to spend the night with me in the hotel.
After scouring the Web, as well as these questions
Can a hotel kick you out if you let an unregistered guest share a room with you?
What is proper etiquette on bringing one night stands to a hotel room?
Do additional guest need to be present for hotel check in
Can I have an unregistered guest come over at a hotel?
I have found many general answers that basically amount to "it depends." Obviously, though I can't seem to find anything concrete.
Having stayed in many hotels in the area, I only ever saw them ask for a CC and ID for the person paying. I don't get the impression that they would even care, and the hotel policies make no mention of additional guest fees.
In Massachusetts, USA, will there be any issues if I simply bring my girlfriend up to the room? Do I have to tell the front desk? Both of us are very private people and would rather not go through that rigmarole.
