Subject: Re: Booking hotels online
I've book hotels online and have had mixed experiences. For my trip to france last Spring, all my arrangements were made online and it worked out great - wonderful hotels, no surprises, good prices.

Here in the US, I've used a number of travel websites for US hotels and found mixed prices and availability - sometimes calling the hotel (or chain) directly gets you a better price!(this has happened to me twice!) I usually check the hotel first, then the websites.

I've never used travelnow, but will try it. Good luck!
