What a production lol...
Could finally access live booking at 4:15 EST.
Clicked the final button to submit, and got "Oops, that stinks...our online booking is down".
Called the hotel a few times and got busy signals.
Called the national 1-800 number, and got put through to the block booking person...she said the block was gone, but they "opened a few more rooms."
I got one. I'm happy.
That's great news for IPMS if the block sold out in 30 minutes.....Who knows what really happened?
It'll be interesting to hear other's experiences....
