My minor daughter booked a hotel with Candle wood suites that I did not authorize. I tried calling and canceling the day prior, within the allotted time frame for a free cancelation but was told there was nothing they could do and it had to be down online. I received an email

Dear Sarah, We appreciate you considering us for your recent travels to the area, and we were sorry to learn you would be unable to join us. It's unfortunate to hear of the reservation issues you experienced with your third-party booking site. We have no control over their billing information or policies, and we encourage guests to book directly for the best rates and experience. Our team was also saddened to learn of any perceived rudeness you experienced, and we'll be discussing your thoughts with the team to ensure our high standards of service are being fully met. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience, and we wish you safe and happy travels along your way.
