The hotel raised rates for some rooms from a posted rate of $139 to $399 a night.

Hotel brands generally received low scores in a large survey of customer service experiences. Hampton Inn and Marriott were the only two out of 12 major hotel brands to receive "good" ratings in a study by Temkin Group, a customer service research firm. "Many of the hotel brands in our study aren't delivering the level of hospitality that consumers want," said Bruce Temkin, managing partner of Temkin Group. The research is based on a survey of 10,000 U.S. consumers in January 2012.

LOW-PRICE guarantees on travel websites are about as common as warts on a toad -- and sometimes about as attractive. The guarantees typically say that if a traveler finds a better deal on another website for the same hotel rate or airfare, the website will match it. Some sites throw in incentives. Hilton, for instance, offers a $50 American Express gift card. Other sites offer a free night's stay. Sounds reasonable enough.
