Used in September with no issues

I heard people are having problems if the name on the certificate does not match the name of the arriving guest.

Don't think shift changes at 2pm.

Depends on day but shifts are 6-2/4.   2/4-11   11-6
There is one main manager one assistant manager 2 main front desk supervisors (though one stopped on Friday don't.know who took him over) he was usually there till 4, and regular check in agents which they are mostly new. It depends on agent how strict they are (usually the women check is are more strict)

Strict or not, why is there a rumor going around that they're not letting ppl check-in when apparently nobody had real issues??

All depends on desk agent and if you or they have a problem then goes to supervisor , manager is usually on back room or taking care of things
he's not supposed to be busy with check in unless there is no one else around

Probably bc one guy had issues or they asked who the ah is and guy didn't know or said something like my friend booked it for me and they got upset.
Hilton's policy is to officially give to ah but if give to 2nd name then they don't have to give the benefits of ah to 2nd guest
