What happened to best flexible rates being able to be cancelled till like 6pm with no charge. I made a reservation last week for yesterday and due to a change in business plans, I tired to cancel to avoid the charge and was told by the hotel I needed to still pay for the first night.. when I checked my email I see that I never read the fine print completley. it said the following. Room Type: 1 KING BED EXECUTIVE NONSMOKING - MAX PER ROOMPERSON(S) :5 Smoking Preference: Non-Smoking Rate Type: Best Flexible Rate Rate Information Change to Group Booking Rate Description: Take advantage of our best unrestricted publicly available rate; It allows you to change or cancel your reservation without worry if your plans change. Restrictions may apply based on individual hotel policies. Wed 7 Sep 2011 $129.00 USD per night (1 room(s)) Total Tax † $16.77 USD Estimated Total Price †: $145.77 USD Cancellation: Canceling your reservation or failing to show will result in a charge for the first night per room to your credit card. Taxes may apply. Failing to call or show before check-out time after the first night of a reservation will result in cancellation of the remainder of your reservation. So I can change or cancel without worry as long as I pay the room rate.??? I never had this problem before I always book best flex rates because my plans change often, with work, and I never had to pay for a cancellation before 6p.
