i'm not taking a RE flight this time (as there are more non-stops from
SFO), but i too, also call both the night before and the morning of to
make sure that even if i can't get into my room yet since i am
arriving before check-out time, that they have room to store my
luggage (or perhaps am lucky enough to get a room that was either
uninhabited the night before or that someone took off early enough to
let housekeeping clear it out before my arrival).

one other note i wanted to pass on is that airfares are the *best*
they can be now to get out there. i book my plane ticket for $425 last
week, and it's dropped over a hundred bucks. airtran and delta have RT
flights from SFO-ATL for $319(!) like *now* (and even less from OAK
starting from $289[!] but more from SJC starting at $359). let my pain
be your gain!
