Turns out to be the Clarion. Amenities: Airport shuttle, fitness center, pool, restaurant, business center, laundry facilities.

Not a happy camper. Tried for 4 days to get the 3* S. CS at prices that varied from $56 to 62. It was a perfect match for Doubletree. Every time, it came up with an error ("We couldn't process your request. We're sorry, but we are unable to complete your request. We are currently experiencing problems exchanging information with our hotel partners. Your credit card has not been charged. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please try again in 10 minutes. etc., etc.). Twice I called Hotwire's Customer Care, they just sort of scratched their head, couldn't do anything or advise anything. They did help get multiple holds off the credit card.

Other 3* were much more expensive. Decided to drop to 2.5*, have had good luck in the past getting rooms with kitchenettes in this class. Was very saddened to get Clarion. Hope its OK. Checked a few hours later, they'd dropped the price $4/night for the same property on Hotwire, just to pour salt on the wound.

My consolation is that the best rate on the hotels website is $129/night for those dates. Also, checking multiple hotel sites (ICH, Hilton, Marriott, Choice) shows over half the hotels already full with high rates on those available for this holiday weekend. Also, the location is very convenient for most of the sights.
