What does Status Modified mean?

Lase week I booked IC Prague using our Chase Free Night Cert over the phone, got the email confirmation correctly indicated it is the Chase Free Night.

Reservation shows "Confirmed" on the Upcoming Reservation screen. So I thought everything is fine.

This weekend as I am preparing a spread sheet of our trip with all the logistic details, I checked our various hotel bookings and discovered the IC booking now shows: Confirmation Number: 676xxxxx | Status: Modified

What does Status Modified mean? Anybody has seen such modification?

Since this is a Chase free night booking, it is not even possible to pull up reservation details on PCR site.

We do not have IC status, only PC PLAT. Therefore we do not expect any room upgrade would happen. The only request we made at the booking was a 2-bed room, non-smoking as it only has Classic Room being available for award night.

There is no point deduction in the account. So it does not look like the hotel changes the free night to a point booking.

Can you elaborate? Or give me the full URL on how to access the site where the details of reservation would show? Though I am not sure it would work with Chase Free Night Cert booking as it never has details online.

The hotel had noted the booking and so the status is "modified". Modified is often a good thing as upgrades are indicated by the modified status. Not a concern regardless. Piece together the information from multiple Priority Club resources such as those noted above to have a better understanding the current status of the booking. And do keep in mind an upgrade is only 100% at the time of check in. One such upgrade was to the presidential suite at the IC Chicago only to arrive to a standard room.

Note the first London Park Lane reservation is twice modified, the second London Park Lane reservation is unmodified, and the Budapest reservation is once modified. The twice modified London reservation resulted in no obvious changes to the reservation while the once modified Budapest reservation resulted in an upgrade.

Does holidayinn site show reservation at IC?

In any case, unfortunately the mobile sites default back to the regular PC site (the 3rd one listed) therefore not working.

mobile.holidayinn.com works today but mobile.priorityclub.com does not work today. The device (mobile device vs non mobile device) may determine functionality (or not). And non of them work well on version 7 Blackberry OS today but...


As noted above,

http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/wireles...en/home.action

but I find mobile.holidayinn.com easier to remember...

Best I can tell all list all Priority Club reservations.

We RAs see this frequently with IC brand stays. It indicates that our originally booked room has been upgraded to either a suite or a Club level room. Sometimes this change can be seen online, other times the notation indicates one must call IC to view or make changes to the booking.

What a bizarre way of doing things. I noticed a reservation of mine for a night in Lille, France using my PCR Visa annual free night certificate had changed from "confirmed" to "modified," so I did the first thing any good FTer would do: search FT for a relevant thread.

The odd thing is that the reservation on the mobile site does mention the "Annual Free Night Certificate for PCR Visa/Chase Cardholders" next to a little "i" graphic in the "Your Stay" section, but then it shows an estimated total of 137.75EUR for the stay. Since the PCR cert is noted in the res, I shouldn't have any issues, right?
