I booked a room on Hotwire for pretty cheap (about $200/night, which is cheap for a nice hotel in this area), only to arrive at the hotel and find that the room that had been reserved wasn't big enough for my wife and daughter and me. So they offered me a "discounted" upgrade to a bigger room that also included access to the concierge level (free breakfast and afternoon drinks and snacks) and free access to the pool and gym, which would have been $20 a day for each and which we would have had to pay regardless. Add in the way-overpriced parking ($45/day, I think), and all of sudden, the 2-day stay that was supposed to cost me around $500 had ballooned to about $750.
All that aside, we really did enjoy our stay and the view from the room on the 22nd floor was great. The pool was fun, my wife enjoyed the gym, and the breakfast and afternoon drinks in the concierge room were a nice touch. Not sure I'd be able to afford going back to this place at full price, but it was probably worth even the inflated price we ended up paying.
