Q. What if my potential travel companion (roomie) is TBD, unknown at this time, or not ready to book?
Time waits for no one :) Book without them and add them to your reservation at a later time. Since prices and availability are subject to change, be sure to reserve the room for just yourself and we can add them when they are ready. Solo occupancy hotel rates are sometimes higher than double occupancy. When we add your travel companion in the future, you'll recognize the double occupancy savings. Rates are refreshed at the time future changes are made.

We recommend booking travel protection along with your itinerary whether from our recommended supplier or any trusted travel protection supplier.
