The real deal on the 19.28 room for the leading hotels of the world it was too good to be true!

Deal: Book a room for $19.28
September 15, 2008
As reported in Consumerist and the L.A. Times, a group of hotels called the Leading Hotels of the World is offering their rooms for $19.28 per night. The deal is to last for 80 minutes, starting at 8 a.m. eastern time on October 1st.

Due to the overwhelming number of consumers participating in this promotion. We regret to inform you due to technical difficulties beyond our control the 1928 promotion has been suspended indefintely.

Wow! Your post reminded me that I meant to get up at 5 this morning and bid on their Carmel property. Glad I got the extra hour's sleep!

I never got through either, then the last time I tried received the same message you did. What a waste of time and hope.

just got this from the website:

Due to the overwhelming number of consumers participating in this promotion, we have indeed experienced technical difficulties. Despite our efforts to carefully manage and prepare for this worldwide promotion, we were unable to meet the demand.

Please accept our sincere apologies. You will be receiving another opportunity to participate in this offer shortly via the email you provided to register for this promotion.

In the meantime, please rest assured that we will not be saving your email address in our database for any future solicitations.

Thank you for your understanding.

The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd.

I don't hold much faith in another promotion.
