Grosvenor Hotel, Victoria flash sale 18.62 at 11am March 1st

Thought this may interest some. A flash sale at 11am today for the above hotel 30th March to 30th April for 18.62/night, 400 rooms available.

Any quick thoughts on the place (recently refurbished)?

I stayed at the Charing Cross property a few years back (on priceline) and was quite impressed.

I'm occasionally getting the page back again, but it's the same "Check back at 11am" message. Suspect it's probably being cached somewhere.

At least I've got Speedbird's YouTube video to entertain during the wait!

Managed to get to the 1st page. http://www.guoman.com/hotels/united_...ION&code=RRR80

Thursdays to Mondays only.

But the booking engine is still in revolt.

Managed to get onto the first page too, but when I try searching for availability I get the following message:

"It appears that an unexpected error was encountered when posting the form.
The post returned an Exception undefined: undefined"

Now saying promotion code not valid or has expired.

Strange that hotels never seem to get these things to work!

hank you to everyone for trying to book The Grosvenor Grand Room Rush. Although fully prepared for this promotion, due to unprecedented demand, we have experienced technical difficulties with the website.

We apologise for disappointing you, but we have decided to postpone this promotion. Please send us an email to information@guoman.co.uk and we will be in touch later today with an update.
Someone is about to have a looong day in the office!
