Their pile-up management could use some work.  About three weeks ago I got 
a reservation for 4 nights (to allow for CTU).  Price was $122/night for a 
double queen, no charge to the credit card now - just a guarantee, and I 
can cancel up until 3 pm of the day of arrival.  I also did this through 
the hotel.
