Well yesterday I had a fun experience - mostly the opposite of everyone else here - trying to reserve a room.
Online would not even act as if a rate existed in the first place, let alone have an error at payment.
Tried to call the hotel and never got through. Just rang and rang and rang.
Called the Wyndham National line and they struggled to first find the hotel (as opposed to the Days Inn, Super8, whatever, even though I clearly said RAMADA)... then they couldn't find the rate... then they DID find the rate, but it wouldn't apply... after 10 minutes of helpfully struggling they told me to try the local hotel again.
So I did and the desk answered before the phone even rang, caught me by surprise. They hooked me right up with the $79 rate, got everything booked in 2 minutes.
Crazy! I guess just trying to get a room is like the qualifying pre-game for this year
