Anyway, we will soon learn if the hotel will honor prepaid reservations.
Perhaps, and I am well aware that the general rule of thumb is 'never call'. But there is also a risk that you show up and the hotel can't/won't honor the rate and it quickly turns into a stressful situation that derails a good chunk of your holiday.

Of course since you aren't one of the first people checking in you would advocate for the 'wait-and-see' approach but your interests don't necessarily align with mine or anyone else's so perhaps you should keep that in mind next time before you speak up.
