Good on you, that's gotta be pretty hard to give up that much money. Did you dispute the charge?

I don't see anything wrong with this? Are you expecting a Waldorf for $4800?

Its a DoubleTree not a Hilton. You can't assume everyone knows who owns Doubletree.

I paid half on a check. I told the guy that he should at least give me back half as I was only there two out of 8 days. he said lets talk after yom tov. (thinking he was honest and actually was trying to put out the dozen fires raging all over). in the end he didnt give me back a penny AND he sold my room to someone else. Yes I called the hotel and asked to be put through to my room, where I found a lovely couple that came and took the room. so he made even more money without refunding me. new rule for me, only cc or I wont go.

I found a place that was willing to take me and BH had an enjoyable rest of yom tov.

Ouch.

That's when a CC is needed.

There is a good chance that doing more research before would be better.

Unfortunately to some it is all about the money. Hopefully your warning will help others from getting ripped off.

How would such a rule help with any Kashrus issues?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Unless the kashrus is below the advertised standard you can't, but for many of of the other issues it will.

I think he was referring to actually knowing the kashrus standard before you eat things there.
