Booking a hotel on a website that will not give you the name of the hotel until you have agreed to the price and have made your purchase should raise a few red flags. But no, I pressed on while humming a simple tune over and over in my head. The words go something like "h-o-t-w-i-r-e...hotwire dot com."
So, here I am in Phoenix at the hotel, amazed that some photographer was able to make the pool look as large as he did--and wondering if it is even legal to crop out surrounding buildings in promo picts of your hotel online. It is not a horrible place, but it is still daytime and I am concerned about the note I found upon entering the room. It was accompanied by a set of earplugs.
