Found a room at the Courtyard Marriot downtown at hotelsclick.com
Yes it's the official hotel. I was looking at reviews on Trip adviser and saw that. Got it for one night 1/3/14 for $178.25, for some reason which hotelsclick can not tell me I was actually charged 180.03. I called the hotel to double check that I am in their system and I am!
I was a bit concerned as hotelsclick is out of Italy but all (except for that $1.78 difference) seems to be set
I checked today and there are still rooms available at that price, make sure to choosee USD for your payment at check out and I'd be curious if others wand up getting charged 180.03 instead of 178.25
It could be your bank/credit card company's 1% fee for currency exchange. I've had that happen many times when traveling abroad. Just a thought
Edit: foreign transaction fees I think they're called? not necessarily currency conversion. whatever. some kind of 1% bank/card fee
