Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I am generating an OSM XML file using all POI data from the collaborative tourism guide Wikivoyage.

All hotels in Wikivoyage contain a check-in and check-out time.

What is the best way to embed this information into the OSM XML file?
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Hotel does not have such fields.

This file will be used by travellers (via offline apps like OsmAnd), and it would be very convenient if they could have a look at checkin/checkout times from the apps, as many don't have an Internet connection (abroad/plane).

Is the licence actually compatible? I'd have thought that wikivoyage's "same licence" requirement may cause problems?

@SomeoneElse: I am not inserting data into OSM. I am only transforming Wikivoyage data, and my resulting file has the same license as Wikivoyage itself. So no license problem.

I'd be tempted to just use checkin and checkout although there seems to be no occurrences of these according to taginfo, although there is one opening_hours:checkin use (and in this example you can check in between 2pm and 11pm 7 days a week).
