I've just been reading an article on ways to get a better hotel room than you booked. Surprisingly, being a member of a hotel's loyalty scheme wasn't on the list. But this was:
"If you’re on a budget break and the standard rooms don’t have a refrigerator, it’s worth remembering that hotels have to provide a means of refrigeration for guests with medication that needs to be kept cold. Often the easiest option is to simply give you a room with a fridge, so you might well end up with a free upgrade."
That's news to me. Anyone know if it's true?
