Looks terrific, and I am planning a trip to Boston. Will give it a shot.

Of course, if ever a server was going to crash, I'm thinking this will be the one. . . .

Not a crash per se, but after I clicked through at exactly 1:18 and managed to find a weekend with available rooms at the lower price, I entered my information only to be told that there was an error processing my reservation and could I please try again. Tried a few times with the same result, gave up, started over, and all of the cheap rooms were gone. Grr...

The count down counter was wrong as far as I could tell. It indicated another hour to wait at 1:18PM Eastern. I checked back 5 minutes later to find the sale in porcess. Weekend rooms looked to be gone within a few minutes, bummer.

Tried every Friday or Saturday night from now through Sept24 (end date of promo) - and got the $118/nt rate as the lowest on each occasion.

Not a bad deal for this hotel, but not $18/nt either.

Lots of dates with the $118 rate, nothing less. I would have considered a mileage run and some good chowda at $18...

The exact same thing happened to me.... I had booked 3 nights... got the $18 rate.... but after putting in my contact and billing info, clicked "Book Reservation" and then got the error.

Very frustrating.

And yet one more. Same thing happened to me. AND to a friend of mine as we were both working the website at about 1:19 or so. (It was open at 1:18 EST, no delay but we did have to enter the site again to "clear it" more or less.) My friend snagged an $18 rate, for a weekend in August. Put in all her info to purchase and got booted out. I had an $18 rate, scrolled down to look at the few rooms and then when I went to purchase the rooms had changed to $118.

It was a good gimmick but I am wondering if they had about one or two rooms available per night, and that was that. At $118 for another ten bucks or so you can do better at some other BOS hotels.

UPDATE: I had emailed the hotel via their website and included a screen shot that showed I had the rate held when the technical problem occured. Earlier tonite, I received a confirmation from the hotel of my three nights at the $18 rate.

So, I have to give the hotel credit... they followed through... but I did have the screen shot to prove that I had the rate.

wharvey, that's good to know. I thought of saving a screen shot, but didn't. Lesson learned!
