Strange request from the hotel
Posted Nov 17, 2016
I booked this room last minute because my son , due to unexpected circumstances, was stranded in Johnson City, Tn. When he arrived at the hotel, the manager called me and stated that he had to have my credit card number to cover any damages that might occur. As I have never had this occur with any hotel I have booked through Expedia, I was to somewhat surprised and a bit concerned about the wisdom of complying with this request. I was, unfortunately, over a barrel because it was late at night and this was the nearest hotel to my son's location. In an age where credit card theft is rampant, I felt it was inappropriate to require me to give this information to someone, sight unseen.
