Unread post by RacerTCI » Tue Sep 04, 2012 11:59 pm

After your team is registered please make your hotel arrangements ASAP.

You do not want to stay away from the group as Route information is many times posted at check in or passed to the group during the evening should a sudden change take place. (no matter how time we put into planning these things do happen)

Additionally the hotels and the parking lots are where most of the strategy and half the fun is anyway.

Our rates are only locked down till January 31st 2013.

That number worked for me tonight but they had a hard time finding the group.... until she found it under "North America". Very nice woman but a bit airy between the ears.... she needed to be told how to spell rally. Just before she found the group block, she provided contact info for group sales but fortunately going that route wasn't needed.

Just the opposite happened at Best Western in Rutland, it was a breeze. So, I'm booked at all listed hotels and off the slackers list.

I was suprised how easy it was for me. But I would have to agree with yeah TDH. I had a phone issue with one not sure which but after a second call everything good.

They were suprised I was booking so early. I think she said, "Holy crap thats early. Can't wait to see you guys"

Only issue, if you can call it that, was with the hotel in New Brunswick. It didn't list the room rate, even in the email confirmation.

All it says is "Rate per night: Confidential Rate". :confused:

During the reservation process the rates you published in the 1st post are listed.... they just don't transfer over as the reservation process progresses and are also omitted on the confirmation email However that said... the parking fee wasn't $9, its showing as full fare of $20.... which leads me to wonder if we're going to be juked on the $10/day webz access too.

If there is an issue call the hotel. I have everything in writing for our group. The rates, the internet is free for our group, the parking discount will be handled at the hotel as it is a different company that runs the parking space and that took some time to work out.

Plan on booking hotel rooms Monday. Chatted over Thanksgiving with Team Sert and toyed with the idea of getting our rooms together, do you guy's know off hand if Best Western has any larger rooms or give out 2 parking passes per standard room (I would assume they so, what if a husband/wife drove each of their vehicles to the hotel on a trip, haha)?

Wand waved and all will be good shortly at the first hotel

I dream of a day when hotels will pay their staff well enough to get quality people that understand turning business away for no good reason is bad business.

Until then we will have to deal with momentary front desk issues such as this.

Everything booked up aside from Canada, that will be done on-line this evening.

Must say, all the hotel staff on the phone were very nice and as soon as I said the reservation dates all 3 hotels stated, "Ah, you must be a Rally North America Reservation, yes?" :giggle:

When I booked our room on Oct 2 Hilton a St. John we booked two nights instead of one. I called them today to change my reservation from two nights to one night; Arrive July 25 and check out July 26. The hotel said they could not change my reservation. I had to go back to you guys to change my reservation. Can you please help change my reservation? Give me a call and I will give you my confirmation number.

That's weird..... good luck.

I was organizing stuff and looked at their email confirmation(s)... yea, I got 2 of them. Both had the same confirmation number, showing 1 room for 2 people for 1 night. I called reservations and they stated I had 2 rooms, one person in each for 1 night. Reservations talked to the front desk while putting me on hold, returning to say its been corrected and they would send email confirmation. 12 hours later 2 emails arrived... 1st one, a new confirmation just like the previous 2 from November showed, 2 people, 1 room, one night. Then a 2nd email arrived with a cancellation number. So..... I've got to call them again to insure they haven't screwed the pooch.... again.
