Business traveler
El problema fue la relacion comfort y precio. Encontre lugares en la ciudad con baño privado y tv, solo pagando 10 dolares mas cada dia. Pague 50 dolares mas en Santuario para cambiar a un espacio mas grande para comodidad y seguridad de mis pertenencias.Deberia haber una opcion de cambiar, si encuentro en la ciudad un lugar que me parece mas adecuado por el servicio y el precio. Despues de usar expedia varias veces en los ultimos años, esta ha sido la de mayor disparidad. Deberian incluir preguntas sobre el precio y recompensar al usuario, si la diferencia es significativa con otros lugares como en este caso. Gracias por considerar mi punto de vista para el futuro.
