@gemchick82:  I believe a white lie is sometimes OK.  In this case I would say that I had ‘loyalty points’ or some such thing at the nicer hotel and insist that you wanted to use them due to budget.  Very few people will argue once you bring up budget, as long as you don’t overuse it!

If you don’t have loyalty points to use for the above excuse, you could tell them “there was no (king, queen, whatever) available when you made your booking.”

Even if they check and rooms are available at that time, they could have come available in the interim.
