At the time you checked in, perhaps that is all they had available - and a better room became available when people checked in later.

Regardless, I'm a big believer that if you desire a better room, the lesson learned is to book the better room. I've gambled and lost at some properties - and I've gambled and won big and some properties. You've come to Maui at an extremely busy time of the year. You not only have the NYE crowd extending vacations - this is a popular time of the year for sales clubs and events.
