Do you have to take a CET "upgrade"?

    I received an offer for a suite from the quad as I was purchasing my reservation. Im sure this is quite common...... I was thinking of canceling and rebooking hoping I can get that offer again so me and my buddy can split the room.

    However if I select the upgrade, am I able to deny it at check in or am I forced to that room?

    If you are agreeing to an upgrade in advance, that means that you have booked the upgraded room and will be essentially making a reservation change at check in. They can probably downgrade you but there is no guarantee what they will decide to charge you for regular room. Odds are, it won't be the price you originally booked. It would be easier to attempt to get an upgrade than to try and give one up that you already committed to.

    That sucks. maybe I will just try to get that offer again, print it and then if we decide to get a suite see if the front desk can match it. if not we each get a room :)

    Maybe I am slow today, but after reading this three times, I am still confused.

    I don't get the situation here. You want to upgrade, but you don't? Why would you select the upgrade if you would then deny it at checkin?

    Its not an upgrade per say. It does not change your reservation to the upgraded room. You dont know what room you will actually be in until you check-in.

    For example, I booked a deluxe room. I was then offered to "upgrade to these rooms at check-in if available" and I was offered 2 different suites at different prices. I had the option of picking both suites since its "if" available at check in.

    I am just wondering if I elect for an "upgrade if available" am I forced to it? My buddy has already booked Riviera and we are thinking of getting the king suite at the quad with two bedrooms and splitting the cost...but he is down for two weeks and im down for only a week so he would need to hotel hop if I put the room in my room. He isnt sure about this yet so I dont want to be forced to the upgraded room alone.

    Yes, if you select an upgrade you are committing to take it if it is available!

    It even says so on the webpage - or maybe there is a link to the terms and conditions.

    This isn't a 'maybe I'll take it, maybe I won't'. It a 'I would like an upgrade at a discounted price and am commuting to take one if available'.

    You don't have to select any upgrades, you can only select 1 option if only one of the upgrade options looks appealing - but if you say 'yes' to an upgrade, while booking, you are committed to it...if it is available on check-in.
