I've worked in the hospitality industry for 18 years in the United States so I can answer this with some knowledge. Most states require a hotel to post their "Maximum Possible Rate" on the back of the guest room door. This is to keep a hotel from "price gouging" in the event of a natural disaster or even from discriminatory practices, (charging someone of a ...

Sleeping in airports is not uncommon when transiting through. Quite a few people stretch out and nap while waiting their next flight. But this is primarily in the transit areas, security often frowns on folks sleeping in the public area around the check in counters (otherwise homeless folks would flock to the heated airport lobbies armed with a second hand ...

Actually using your card for a different person whose gonna checkin at the property is a bit risky. but you can actually do that just as long as you are going to get in touch with the property the soonest possible time to advise them that the person whose gonna checkin will use a different card instead to pay the reservation so they can change the credit ...

And from the hotel's point of view, if they ...

There are several ways to get to the Roissy (CDG) airport from the Arc de Triomphe (usually called “Place de l'Étoile” or just “Étoile” by the locals, and sometimes known as “Charles de Gaulle” on transport maps — not to be confused with “Charles de Gaulle” refering to the airport!). Air France runs coaches to the airport, and one of the lines goes from ...

I did the same and I never got into trouble at the border. Usually, they might ask the address of your accommodation and I gave mine which was different than I told the embassy because I got a better deal. And I got no problem with that. However, if you're going to stay at your friend's place I'd suggest have a copy of his passport and his cell phone number ...

It's pretty well explained on the hotels.com website. For each night you book, they record how much that night was. Once you've hit 10 nights, you can book a hotel night for free for the average rate of those 10 nights. If the hotel you want to book is cheaper than the average, it's completely free, but you loose the extra. If you want to book a hotel ...
