Yes, I agree that it was expensive.  

While we like this hotel for what Eureka offers, they placed my husband in a ADA room on the first floor near the elevator (while the person in front of him in line was given a choice of being on the 2nd or 3rd floor).  I just spoke with the manager and was told that he was actually 40 feet from the elevator and that Priceline had booked him an ADA room so that is what the front desk clerk gave him so he said my beef is with Priceline.  He acknowledged that my husband was put in a room that they fill last because of the least desirable location.  He also confirmed that the hotel was not full and that there were other rooms available.


I called Priceline and Priceline confirmed that while their contract does not guarantee the room type/location, it also states that if the hotel is not willing to give a similar quality room to Priceline guests as to other guests booking directly then the hotel should not participate in the program.  I will call the hotel manager and remind him of that fact.
