Um, you are not the first person ever to think about this issue.  They 
usually do charge a cancellation fee unless you pay the highest rack rate. 
Hotels are unlike airplanes in that they do not know in advance how long 
people will stay, and in many places they're not allowed to kick out a 
client who overstays, and I get the impression that overstays were the 
problem this time.

I've been walked, it's not a big deal.  You typically get a better room at 
a hotel within walking distance, for free, and the hotel staff will move 
your luggage back for you when you get unwalked if you ask them to.
