Anyone got any 'leverage' with Ramada?

Hi All;

I need to get a room at the Ramada Plaza in Basel, Switzerland next year for a week starting March 22. However the hotel is sold out; I am a member of the Starwood Preferred Guest program and in that program it is possible for a member to 'force' a room reservation.

Is there such a feature in the Ramada/Wyndham program? If there is, then is anyone interested in a deal? I can offer SPG points, Hyatt points or American Airlines miles or international upgrades. I am not looking for a free room, I am quite prepared to pay for it, just a confirmed reservation.

Dont think they're sold out - If I go to their site I can only book up until March 17 2011, the rest is greyed out. They probably only allow bookings for +1 year minus one week. My guess is that around next week you should be able to book it.

They ARE sold out

Hi D;

I was in Basel this week for an annual trip, walked into the hotel itself & inquired about next year & they told me that they were sold out for the entire period of next year's show.

So, if anyone has any 'leverage' I would be glad to hear from them.

Noctilux, I would suggest you place your trade in Flyertalk's coupon connection forum where it will get a much greater number of looks and a quicker response.

Is it actually sold out or have they simply handed over their inventory to the organiser of the show, in which case you may be able to book through them?
