So excited that it's Friday & we have a loooong weekend, aren't you? Any plans??
The past few days we've been trying to schedule our trip to NYC using Expedia, which was a NIGHTMARE. It seems that when we selected our flight + hotel package, they would give us a discount during checkout only to take it back when you finally hit enter!! MAKES NO SENSE. We did that about 5 times & still the same thing happened!!
We even called customer service only to have the guy tell us the same thing, but with no real explanation why it was happening. So, I finally tweeted about it & thanks to jewelry designer, Elsa Corsi who referred me to Last Minute Travel , our trip is now booked! I have to say, booking with Last Minute Travel was very smooth & the price you got was the price you paid.
Originally we were looking for apt. rentals in NYC for 10 days - and visited sites like VRBO & Homeaway.
After writing to about 5 property owners & getting NO RESPONSE, we decided these sites weren't for us! It made no sense to me... So, on we went & booked our trip!
After all this back & forth, we'll be staying at the Marcel at Gramercy. Any of you stay there before??
This will be in October- so I'll have to tell you what our experience was with this hotel at that point. In fact, I'll blog while I'm there! Can't wait to visit my family as well!
So, please share where you stay when you travel to NYC? Did you rent an apt. or a hotel? Did you use sites like VRBO? What was your experience like??
I'd love for all of YOU to share your experience!!
