Did not honor confirmed reservation

Terrible experience. I had a confirmed paid booking on Expedia a month in advance. I tried multiple times to reach the hotel to confirm free shuttle before arriving. No one answered phone or email. Arrived at hotel via taxi after long flight and they told me they were full and had no rooms even when I showed them my confirmation. I had to go find another hotel ar the last minute. Luckily Expedia was able to refund my paid reservation. Book somewhere else.

Billed twice

I booked the hotel online and I was told that my payment through expedia did not come through there system and I was charged up front for the hotel.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Room comfort

The hotel was close to my place of work, so I could walk rather than having to confront traffic jams. The hotel staff was friendly, which made up for the absence of a shower, and the intermittent Internet connection.
