In this post, we will talk about inviting guests to OYO Rooms. And what can be done if Visitors are not allowed?

So, it is completely up to the hotel to allow visitors to your hotel room. Some hotel may completely deny entry of visitors to your rooms other may permit them for specific time durations.
What To Do If You Have Visitors?
● The first thing to do is to talk to the hotel directly before booking OYO Rooms. Tell them you want to book a room at their hotel and you a visitor. Tell them at what time your visitor may arrive and they are okay with it.
If they say that they will allow visitors, then you can move ahead and book a room. If not, call the next hotel from the list.
● Politely ask the head of the hotel staff to allow visitors. Tell him/her that you haven’t met them(visitors) for so long and they are coming to meet.
Also, tell them that there is no security concern and if they wish they can keep visitors’ ID cards(for the period they stay).
Although there is no guarantee, the manager may permit visitors’ entry to your room.
● Another thing you do is to contact OYO customer care and tell them your requirements. It is possible that they might help you find OYO hotels that allow visitors.
● Last but not least, Every OYO hotel has a lobby or meeting area, where you can sit and have a conversation with your visitors. You don’t even need the hotel’s permission to do that as the visitor is not entering the rooms.
You can meet your visitors there.
