Please be aware, HOTWIRE is now calling motels such as La Quinta , Country In and Suites, Holiday In Express and Best Westerns as " boutique holes"
This past month I have booked 6 times with HOTWIRE in category boutique hotel and was awarded all of the above. On the last booking it was a La Quinta, so I called Hotwire to ask how they
came to the conclusion a La Quinta motel is a boutique hotel? They put me on hold to call the hotel, came back to the phone to offer me a refund or a 25% credit off my rate to keep the
motel. This is not a good trend and I told them so, as far as I am concerned this is false advertising as we all know none of the motel I have listed above can be construed as a "boutique hotel"
After conferring with Hotwire they seem to agree with me. Not that will stop what they are doing. Just be careful when booking any “boutique hotel" with Hotwire.
