Booking hotel in Italy on Orbiz?

Have anyone booked a hotel in Italy on Orbitz? What was your experience? DId you book and just showed up or you still contacted the hotel prior to arrival? The rate on Orbitz - does it include tax, service charge? What are the charges that are not included? Thank you in advance.

I got better rates by contacting the hotel directly and offering to pay in euros. If your are going to Rome try the Barocco Hotel. It was great.

HI
If you're booking an air-hotel package that's one thing, but so far I haven't had a hotel refuse to honor a discounted rate that I found elsewhere.
Whenever possible, I prefer to be the hotel's customer, not the customer of a booking agency.

The small print on Orbitz should tell you what is included in the quoted rate and what is not. Ask the same question if you contact the hotel.

Hi Kiramoli

I always contact the hotel after booking through a discounter and ask for a written confirmation.

Goofd morning, kiramoli
1.
Contect hotel directly by e mail and
make all necessary arrangements.
2. Fax CCnr as deposit when all arrangements are made and require a
confirmation from the hotel..
