Done with Hotels.com
The whole check-in process was tedious and had to make a few phones and provide credit card details to check-in. I was told I can't leave the property thw next morning unless I paid as Expedia had not processed the payment. It's not my problem how your business process works but there was clear disconnection in your booking, confirmation and completion process. Also a lack of empathy or support from your support was not a great experience. I think I may have made my last booking with Hotels.com
