    Don’t get me wrong, I’d take the ocean front but that’s because I’m all into oceanfront views. If you couldn’t really care less and are happy with the original choice then you should absolutely call her immediately. I mean, she OWES you $1000. That’s far from being small change.

    I know some say they get better deals through a travel agent but i never go through them for this reason alone..they can be SUPER shady! I would call her immediately and tell her what the hotel said so se can make it right.

    There’s nothing shady going on! You agreed to a specific room at a specific price. The resort had a sale after you booked but it’s not the travel agent’s job to check the hotel’s prices once your booking is confirmed, and if the resort days they’re sold out of the cheaper rooms, the TA can’t force them to give you one. How is that shady?! It’s like asking a broker to buy you concert tickets and by the time you’re ready to book, the Balcony has sold out. Plus hotels (and airlines) often only set aside one room at the super sale price; when it’s gone, it’s gone.

    OP enjoy your savings and your upgraded room and don’t look back. It sounds like you got a good deal! Plus the fact that the TA called to get your fast input on the oceanfront room, rather than emailed and risked waiting too long and having that sell out too, shows she’s trying to do a good job for you.

    I said keep it how it is because oceanfront is seroiusly unbeatable, BUT i would still call her out on it because that is NOT OK of her to lie to you

    @fishbone:  It’s shady because she said they were sold out of the garden view rooms which left them with no choices and when OP called, they were NOT sold out, they had 3 left.

    Two issues. 

    On the room… I’d take the ocean-front. Especially if that means a balcony! I feel like having an oceanfront balcony makes a vacation 10x better because even when you’re tired and just want to hang in the room, you still feel totally luxuriated in your vacation. Going to a room wihtout a view feels like I should only be there to sleep. 

    Second issue… if YOU like the other room better– call her on her shit and get your $1000! That is super shady.

    I think you should thank your lucky stars that they even agreed to let you re-book at a lower price.

    They certainly did not have to.  You booked your tickets at a certain price, if you wanted to keep price shopping then you do not committ. There is a reason that trips are cheaper closer to the date you go.

    I do not think you should call her out on her “lie”.  It sounds like she was checking and possibly had incorrect info, but that doesn’t mean she lied.

    I would caution you to not be overly agressive, as she may just stop helping you, and lock you into your previously agreed on price.

    @andielovesj:  I agree.

    Furthermore, the hotel may only allow a certain number of rooms to be rebooked at a sale rate, so there could still be cheaper rooms available for new reservations but you may have missed the few rooms available for adjustment.

    @loveisallyouneed24:  Is it possible this travel agency only has a certain amount of rooms that they are able to book at a discounted price at this hotel?  I’ve never used a travel agency so I’m not really sure how all of that works.
