If you have booked a stay with hotel make sure to call and confirm they are still in business and call other local businesses to see if they are really open.
My husband booked 9 night stay for Christmas break through Expedia several months ago.
We arrived and found the hotel's gate chained off and no one at the hotel. We drove to another hotel and found out that the Riviera hotel has been closed for over a month.
We were on the phone with Expedia for over 3 hours to get another hotel booked for us for no extra charge. Expedia tried to call the hotel for hours and no one answered the phone.
The Riviera was not supposed to charge our credit card until we arrived but they fully charged our credit card when we booked the hotel then skipped town.
We were lucky to have found another hotel to stay because most hotels on the island were completely booked. This was a horrible way to start a vacation but we were lucky to have found another hotel and have Expedia help us.
