Where are you renting a hotel? In most places in the US, you can make a reservation paid in advance – especially if you’re booking online. You will then usually be asked for a card on file when you check in for any incidentals (mini bar, stuff like that.) The only time I’ve been told I cannot pay in advance was when I was staying in hostels backpacking across Europe/Asia.

vlzaccaria:  It depends on the hotel.  My DH works for a hotel here and they’ve been trying to eliminate the practice as they’ve actually had a lot of issues recently with people paying for a week stay a week or 2 before and then 3 weeks later the hotel finds out it was paid for with a stolen credit card and that causes the hotel a massive headache.
