"Coronavirus cancelled event."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The hotel employees were trying to be helpful, however, we used booking.com, which was a mistake bc now we're likely screwed out of six hundred dollars bc those sites aren't in USA. Was upset bc hotel tripled their normal rates for this event that was cancelled by of world wide pandemic. The hotel should tell you if you use one of those sites, you'll be sorry bc the hotel cannot do anything. Never use Travelocity, booking, Expedia, etc.
