You must be joking [Oct. 20th, 2005|09:07 am]
[Current Mood | irritated]

I'm away at a conference next week. I set up my hotel reservation and such back in early September. This morning I find out that the conference hotel is overbooked, so they've transferred my reservation for the first night to a different hotel at the airport instead of the conference hotel. So much for any plans to get together with people that evening or sleep until a reasonable hour the next morning.

"We apologize for the inconvenience" has to be one of the least meaningful sentences in the English language.

So... they're refunding your money for the first night *and* paying for a valet to bring your luggage from one hotel to the next for the second night?!? And, free drinks at the bar all weekend (appropriate, since you don't drink...).


You'd think with computer doing reservations that they could know in advance when they were booked up and not run into situations like this, eh? Good luck.

Hey, at least you heard about it now and not at 11pm when you try to check in like I did when Vis was in Boston. It was a pain, but the hotel I got transferred to was quite accomodating and the valet actually refused my attempt to tip him for bringing my bags to my room.

Which night are you arriving? I'm about to go cancel my reservation, but I don't get in until Sunday, so if you're there Saturday night, that won't help.
