One Last Party: Travel website completely failed my hotel booking. Can't Post

So now I have a room for Friday night, but not Saturday night.

If I can't find someone to share with at the close-by hotels (which of course are completely sold out now), I'll probably just cancel the one night and find something closer the airport and pay extra (ugh!) for a taxi to the party.

Word to the wise...use the travel websites to research fares and rates, but book directly with the hotel or airline yourself. Just to save yourself a headache.

Sorry to hear that Rosie! [In reply to] Can't Post

The last thing you need on a big trip is for your accommodation to fall through less than a week out.

My worst experience was during a South Island holiday when the motelier had me booked in for just one night instead of two. I wasn't impressed. (She gave me a bed in an office in her home for the second night so at least I had a place to sleep.)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Thanks, Greenwoods. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm actually all set for tonight. Someone else offered me their second bed, and when I went to check out of my room, the hotel told me my own room was mine for both nights.

Crazy

All I can guess is that the website "fixed" their screwup and didn't let me know. (Or emailed after I got here.)

I appreciate the offer though!
