Booking room based on 2 sharing

Hi. I have seen several good deals for weekends in hotels with breakfast and meals. However these seem to be based on two people sharing (small print). I don't mind paying the full price for two (as they are still good deals with food included) but would the hotel allow me to turn up on my own for the deal? After all they are saving one person's meals. I would appreciate any advice.

Are these deals you see on a hotel web site or on a travel agent site?

I would always go directly to the hotel to ask about it.

Me too. In fact at certain times of year you can get some good deals.

And the number of times I've found the hotel is cheaper, certainly more flexible, than a large company is significant.

It shouldn't make any difference to the hotel, but as suggested you need to book directly with the hotel and ask them for any questions you have.

Yes, go through the hotel directly. I;d be very wary of deals through Groupon and the like, as you may end up with a very shonky third party OTA.
