First of all, i'd like to describe my situation, as follows:
We are family with two adult children, planning to visit HK 02-05th May, and Macau 05th-09th May. I have booked hotel in HK already. Initially, i planned to book Macau hotel on departure from Macau Ferry Terminal in Shun Tak centre (did it many times before, and excluding holidays, they were 20-25% cheaper than online). However, i have got a warning regarding long weekend holidays, due to 1st of May celebration and Washing Buddha / Drunken Dragon festival in Macau on 6th. Therefore i came close to solution, to book Macau hotel in advance. Now i am thinking about idea to book Sheraton online for 5-7, and thereafter to move into Sofitel. I know from my earlier experience, however, that during "normal" days online and hotel rack prices are higher than in Shun Tak Center agencies. Therefore, i have two questions:-
1. How do you appreciate my ideas in general?
2. Are hotel agents in Shun Tak selling rooms in advance also, or it is only "buy-and-sail" business? In other words, will i be able to buy Sofitel for 7-9 at departure on 5th?
