    The offerings of this hotel seem better than the Westin.

    We got a suite right Ryan? Did we get a suite? For that price compared to the regular rooms, the suites are a DEAL!

    Its not the clubs responsibility to make the hotel have a website. Thats the closest hotel and they got us a block there, not their fault they dont take reservations online....

    Well, it should be their responsibility if they're advertising the convention as an international one.

    It's not possible for that to be their responsibility. They don't own the hotel and/or not involved in any of the hotel management.

    Oh please! Don't you think one of the criteria they should take into consideration when selecting the hotel(s) is precisely that?

    Actually the Biltmore hotel does take reservations online, (http://www.providencebiltmore.com/reservations.asp) however they have no promotion code to enter, so you wouldn't be able to get the discount if you reserve a room online.

    I'm sure it is, but its a pretty low priority item compared to location, price and room availability.

    Nope, I find it much more important that the hotel is close to the convention center. That's first and foremost what they should take into consideration. Seeing how, although less preferable, phoning in a reservation is technically possible from all over the world... nope, when it comes to criteria I'd stick with the close to the convention center. Even if I do prefer to book online myself.

    That's actually worse than not having an online reservation option.

    It's the same situation that happened with the Westin, that pretty much all rooms were already reserved when the information on how to reserve online was made public. I expect the Biltmore to be sold out by the time the TCC email us about the rate being available for online booking.

    Thankfully the Westin added more rooms, otherwise I'd still be looking for a way to reserve a room without having to make an expensive international call.

    I think these announcements (sp?) have to be made when all available ways to book are already in place, to give everybody an equal chance at the rates and locations.

    I think the hotel has to meet all the criterias. Otherwise it's not an option. Online booking in the 21st century should be a given (even if most venezuelan hotels don't do it)
