Book a Suite
I know that this is not always an option financially, but if you can book a suite (or two connecting rooms), then do it. The extra square footage is huge when trying to squeeze a family into one room. If you can't, then ask at check-in if they can upgrade you. Sometimes they will and sometimes they won't, but it certainly doesn't hurt to ask.
