loved the promo but Orbitz's hotel selection not so much

Thanks OP for the information. I was able to book about 5 stays, so got some very nice hotels for nice discounts (cost was mostly taxes). But overall, I wasn't really impressed with Orbitz's room inventory. I don't know if they just held back a lot due to the promotion or what. But several places/dates I checked (admittedly, somewhat out of the way international), hotels through Orbitz showed no availability even though the exact same hotels showed availability on other websites (hotels.com, agoda...). I saw a couple where the Orbitz rate was vastly inflated, e.g. a nice appearing, but very poorly rated hotel was about $140 on Orbitz but $55 elsewhere. The Orbitz hotel selection was surprisingly small in a couple locations I checked. From this experience, Orbitz will not become my first choice in hotel booking.
