we regret to inform you that due to technical difficulties beyond our control the 1928 promotion has been suspended indefinitely

Thats it!

LHW owes me a weekend break at the Baglioni in London between 12-14 Dec 2008 for $19.28

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

why would they suspend it when there were 7 minutes left?

BTW everyone remember LHW is an alliance type thing, not a hotel operator. if you want to shift business, just dont book at LHW.com book direct or through someone else.

Not sure if an explanation requires much technical knowedge... it simply seems - like everything else having to do with this promotion - that they can't even get the right error messages loaded!

Thank you for your interest in the 1928 Promotion.

We regret to inform you that the more than 6000 room nights available at the start of this promotion have all been sold. Congratulations to the lucky participants who were able to get a reservation as part of this great offer!


Still interested in travelling with us? While we can't offer you rooms at USD 19.28, we can still offer some great values, including bundles of 3 nights for the price of 2, 4 for the price of 3, or 7 for the price of 5, as well as discounted weekend rates and other Leading Offers.

Ugh, it has gone from dark to light outside.

Anyway, I am not getting the technical difficulty page yet, but I did notice something interesting. I tried calling the customer service line for this promotion (the 800-643-8881 number) and instead of a busy signal I am getting a "cannot be completed as dialed"

Due to the overwhelming number of consumers participating in this promotion, we regret to inform you that due to technical difficulties beyond our control the 1928 promotion has been suspended indefinitely.

Poor things, they could have had no way of knowing how many people would be participating

I guess they use reverse proxies.

oh jeese, now were getting the prearranged "what a success" message even though they suspended 7 minutes early, clearly without having sold all the rooms.

The latest announcement: "Congratulations to the lucky participants who were able to get a reservation as part of this great offer!"

Give me a break!

Exactly. I can't view this as anything else by a bald faced lie. With the technical difficulty page and all the stuff that has gone on.

80 minutes is up, and I never saw anything other than "Sorry! Due to the overwhelming number of consumers currently trying to access this promotion, your request is being delayed momentarily. Please be patient, donít get discouraged, and retry in a few seconds by clicking here, or by going back to http://www.lhw.com/1928."

Oh well, at least the site didn't tease me by letting me get part way and then crashing!
