    Default how to elaborate this sentence?

    hi,

    i would like to ask a hotel attendant if there is a difference in the hotel rate if:

    1) i make my reservation in advance, by phone, or;

    2) if i do not make any reservation and simply show up in the hotel front desk and ask for a room.

    what is the best way to express this idea:

    "simply show up in the hotel front desk and ask for a room"

    ?

    thanks

    Not something one generally asks a booking clerk.

    "Does the hotel offer special rates to travellers who are not booked in advance?"
