Got our room booked for the Marriott! I’m still shaking, I think I’m good on adrenaline for the entire week. They released the rooms about two minutes early so I jumped on it and had the booking done in less than a minute. Bless you, auto fill. It was surprisingly easy. Maybe too easy. It’s now about 10 minutes after booking opened and people on the D*C Rooms FB page are reporting that the hotel is sold out. Some are saying it sold out in 3 minutes and others are saying they were told by Marriott reps the rooms sold out in 30 seconds. I don’t know if we’ve just been lucky every year or if the difficulty in booking is just overblown. *shrug*
Now I just have to remember to cancel our room at the Ellis.
