We used to get an e-mail inviting us to check in online a day before our arrival. Now it's a full two days in advance.

The room is guaranteed with a credit card, so what's the advantage to such an early on line check in? How does it help me? I would be eager to do it if there was some correlation to receiving an upgrade as a Platinum Elite Member, but so far I have seen none.

Is there some benefit to the hotel?
