    I searched room77 for a Saturday night at Palms Place. All the offers were $300.

    olotels.com has it for $120....

    What are the odds I get told it was some sort of glitch and don't get the room?

    I am skeptical b/c I have never heard of the site, but since they're listed on room77 Im thinking they must be okay

    I know a little inside info on this company -- they are an affiliate of a wholesaler. They do some pretty shady stuff and sell rooms at wholesale prices to the general public, after marking them up about 30%. If you book directly with them you might be ok but I wouldn't try and hold the hotel to a price match guarantee since they are technically breaking their contract with the hotel by selling those rooms at confidential wholesale rates. The hotel company can send them a cease and desist letter to force them to stop doing it, however they will just change their name and do business through a different website until the cycle starts again.

    Probably doesn't make much sense but I work in the industry and just recently had to deal with them on an issue. You might be getting a great deal on a room and your experience might be flawless but if they lack integrity when dealing with their hotel partners, then I wouldn't expect them to be 100% honest or on the level when dealing with customers. Would make me wonder what other kind of shady crap they might be up to. Just a thought....
