Although there are a lot of nice things to say about this hotel, using "Hotwire" to book it is not one of them. We booked this hotel using Hotwire, paid our money up front and then called them to request a "non-smoking room". Unfortunately for us, there were no "non-smoking rooms" available and no way to get our money back. We asked to be put on a waiting list in case of any cancellations and then called later in the day. When we did, we were then told that our reservation was for a "non-smoking room". When we arrived at the hotel and entered the room, to our surprise, they had stuck us in smoking room after all and boy did it stink! We told the people at the front desk that we had called, but this got us nowhere. If there was a way to cancel our reservation and get our money back, it was not offered.
