[EXPIRED] Park Hyatt Zurich in Sept for 7.60 CHF a night

Seems like wrong putting of comma in the rate, thus 100 times cheaper than usual.

Brings up on Hyatt.com as advance purchase rate. Sample dates 3rd Sept to 7th Sept, see screenshot at http://bit.ly/cFph4s

is there any point in booking what appears to be an obvious price mistake? I don't know how often Hyatt honors a mistake rate like this.

I'm not sure I can get to Switzerland in September! Also not familiar with which of my credit cards do or don't charge any extra fees for international bookings...have not yet investigated that.

This thread should be deleted. And yes, I do have a sense of humor.
