My wife and I got stuck in the Philadelphia airport on the way to Phoenix. When we asked Delta if they were going to furnish us a hotel room, they gave us a pink slip with a list of hotels. We called the Holiday Inn Express and they had a room. They quoted us the rate on the pink slip of $89 for the night. When we arrived at the hotel thirty minutes later, the clerk told us the rate was $109 for the night. The clerk at desk says it happens ALL the time. Shame on you Holiday Inn Express and shame on US Airways for giving out the names of hotels that take advantage of stranded travelers.
