Hi Arron, Thanks for your welcome and suggestions. It's such a bummer i booked this and my appointments changed. I've wasted $210. on stupider things in life, but it just seem so wasteful to have this booked room. I called the hotel after i won the request, and they were very pleasant and helpful when i requested the concierge floor in the new tower, a king size bed, and quiet room away from the ice & vending machines. They noted all my preferences and said they will try hard to accommodate my requests, and "look forward to my visit". They used that Regular paying customer friendly lingo. The only time she knew i was a discounted booking from price line is because i told her at the end of the conversation asking if any of my requests are jeopardized because of how i booked and the price, and she said NO. I thought Very nice for that price in DC! I'm always in hotels (business, and conferences) I was just in Atlanta over the weekend and I never have a problem using a different credit card from the one that got used for a reservation, and the names are different on my cards (maiden name for when i check in the hotel for business expenses) and I always use my married name card to reserve the room. So i will double check, and make sure that would not be an issue. Besides, from my understanding priceline does allow you to make a reservation for someone.
