The guy who checked me in is the worst. There was a mistake with the name on my hotel and he refused to change it. It was too late for hotels.com to change it. This guy keeps trying to get me to cancel and pay an extra $40 to re-book. He refuses to work with me. After an hour of working with hotels customer service and repeated calls to this hotel, he agrees to change the name. While waiting for the email he finally says “just cancel and I’ll give you the same rate”. Wtf you said you absolutely has no ability to do this earlier. You had me outside in the Hood late at night talking through a keosk window.
