Just because a specific amenity is not displayed, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist, specifically non-smoking rooms.

Great example of why rate research should not be limited to Express Deals only.

This is a perfect example of why basing your pre-bid rate research should NEVER be based solely on the Express Deal rate which is $136 vs. the retail rate of $139. The retail rate always takes precedence.

And another reason why checking retail rates is so paramount is that not all hotels participate with Express Deals.  I can no longer say what discount from the Express Deal you can expect as just today the Express Deal was $128 and a winning bid was $56.  Further, the retail was was $159 which clearly means the Express Deal wasn't even a good deal.

It's now been reported that taxes and fees are higher on Express Deals than through bidding.
