Is ORBITZ reliable for hotels? Should I PANIC or REJOICE?

Jump to last reply

I have been searching in vain for a room in the vicinity of Yosemite National Park, and everything is very booked for the summer.

But I found a room through Orbitz...in an other-wise-sold-out hotel. I even called the hotel first and they are sold out. But Orbitz still sold me a room.

Should I panic or rejoice? I have never used Orbitz before.

The hotel doesn't yet have a record of my booking but they said it generally takes a couple days after booking before they can see it on their computer.

What is your experience with Orbitz for booking hotels?

(By the way...I already have reservations in Yosemite National Park, but I needed to add a night on somewhere near the park for family.)
