Ditto here. I am entering my email address and then a password twice.

Are there any restrictions on password complexity?

Once you get to that stage, don't forget that in our global community, the MM/DD/YYYY date format is used only in a small minority of locations, so it would be good if you could use an unambiguous date format (eg 12 Nov) rather than 11/12 .

I would like to try the tool out but I have been unable to get it to work. In Chrome on Windows 8, it displays a "Failed to fetch" error on every attempt, even those cities successfully reported elsewhere in this thread. In other browsers, such as Firefox, Palemoon and IE, it won't load at all. Any ideas what else I can try?

Lots of mapping issues in Dallas. Maybe you can put the mapping file up on Github so others can contribute to the workload?

Did you tried refresh? I sometimes have this kind of problem and refresh the website just fix the problem

SPG official price (including tax or not) depends on market/country. Most countries I know of don't include tax, e.g. US, China, Thailand, or even European countries like Poland. However, certainly countries such as Germany always display the final price (taxes included) due to their regulations -- this is not just spg, all other hotel chains also display the tax-inclusive final price.

Unfortunately I don't have a comprehensive list of countries that include taxes and fees. Perhaps others can chip in here?
Oh, thx for the information. So maybe I need to add a filter for these countries?

Did you get some error, I do not really know the problem you are facing, because I have only used chrome for my developement.

in which page did you get the fetch error? If it is on the search page, a refresh might solve the problem
