I shouldn't have to work around to get the correct service in 2020. If it's advertised in $CAD and they can't sell it, then whats the point? Why waste people's time?
frankly surprised the lack of value both Hotwire and Priceline can get these days, as I am certain, in Canada at least, that there is a huge amount of hotel room inventory sitting vacant. Seems to me you get better offers when they are fighting for your business.
i ended up booking a private inn that will discount rooms the closer you get to the date, which for me is this weekend. I have often found Hotwire and Priceline to be frustrating, and hardly that much of a deal, considering the restrictions of buying through them.
great if you are not familiar with the towns landscape, but if you are familiar with hotels, and cities, then you're sometimes better off finding your own deal.
