Id imagine that if you are spending 1K on a suite, you might not care to shop around. Almost like the people who buy mattresses from Sleepys at full price.

Does anyone have a copy of the T&C? I need it to fight against my denial. I used this site and they said it's not valid since they need to call to get the rate (it's not printed on their website):

Thats correct. It had to be a publicly posted rate.

I got a free night in the Helmsley. Thanks Dan.
If I book the night in my name, can I give it to a friend? or Does the person checking in have to be the same person who booked it?
