I took a chance and called Expedia anyway. The agent called the hotel while having me on the phone, and luckily I was able to receive most of my first night's fees back less $3. Definitely a much more favourable conclusion than what I expected.
I've made this mistake in the past as well, especially when city-hopping in Argentina. Essentially, no, it's your mistake, it's embarrassing, but it happens. From Expedia's point of view: You've booked, and paid, and nothing went wrong with their service. Why should they refund? From hotel's point of view: You booked, didn't show. They have no reason to ...
Likely No. You made the mistake, therefore the burden of responsibility and expense is yours. Expedia paid your money to the hotel, the hotel held the room empty for you, so your payment is forfeit. The only one who could perhaps offer a refund would be the hotel itself, but hotels usually stick to their guns on this no show issue.
It means the $ value shown is for two guests (that is two people are allowed in the room). Often hotels apply a surcharge if extra people are wanting to share a room. However, since you've not specified the site, I'll also mention that sometimes it means you can't have less. For example, a twin dorm in a hostel often requires you book both beds. So you ...
Through booking.com you can reliably book accommodation in most countries of the world, including several palace-hotels in Jaipur. In this case, the link is for Hotel Rambagh Palace, in Jaipur.
I suppose you are asking about having a sexual encounter with a stranger. It seems to me it is up to the hotel to allow strangers in the rooms or not. It could also depend on the local laws. Once my Father was staying at a hotel, I tried to visit him, but the hotel forbid me to go to his room! They said that only registered guests could go to the hotel, ...
Virtually every hotel that is connected via the Global Delivery System has some type of automated occupancy rate tuning algorithm that "tweaks" the rates per room per night. I've seen rooms that typically sell for $500/night as low as $69/night direct from the hotel when they have an unforeseen shortfall of rooms booked. You might find if you look at this ...
It doesn't matter when you book it, your trip has to be on that date to get that price. For Example: If you stay Thursday, Friday and Saturday, you will be charged (153 + 104 + 102) * 1.15 (TAX) = 412.85.
The price only affects the nights you stay. Booking at different dates shouldn't make a difference, unless the hotel hikes up the rates due to demand. So for your example, book now, tomorrow or next week - if you're staying on the 13th June 2015, you'll be paying their rate of $102.00 USD per night, plus tax of 15%.
Your pricing looks like a business traveler oriented hotel in a bigger city. Their prices tend to follow the bell curve during an average week, lowest on Friday & Saturday nights (as business travelers have mostly gone home) increasing towards mid week, then back down to the "weekend" prices. You likely would see opposite pricing schemes at a beach ...
Those are the rates for the days of your stay, not the time that you order. Most hotels have higher prices during times of high-demand, and often higher rates on weekends, etc.
It's hard to write an answer that rules all. But from my experience, booking sites do not charge (or authorize) your card if it's a reservation that is either free or you will pay by alternative means (cash payment at the hotel). Booking sites ask your card details anyway for two things: - confirm your identity. To prevent any bad reservations (a ...
Apparently there are hotels that encourage and even make fun of it:
