I wanted to give anyone who booked a room at the Seaport Hotel through Expedia a heads-up.
I would have preferred to book a room closer to downtown, but Expedia advertised that the Seaport could accommodate a roll-away in a room with two doubles. We had trouble finding another hotel that could do this for our family of 5.
As it turned out, they could not put a roll away in a two double room due to fire codes. The woman at the desk was not very helpful when we pointed out that we had booked a room for 5 people. She talked to the manager who offered us an upgrade to a suite for $50 extra a night. We declined paying a total pf $300 extra for the six nights that we had already booked.
After a bit of arguing, the manager came out and tried to tell us that this wasn't his problem...that he can't control what is on the Expedia website. He got Expedia on the phone and after we all took turns talking to them, Expedia agreed that it was their mistake and paid for the upgraded room.
Since the problem was fixed to our satisfaction, I only thought to mention this here because the next day, I was passing through the lobby and heard another group of 5 (all adults) having the same argument at the desk.
Hope I have saved someone a headache on arrival!
