Indeed, but there is no IETF going on next door.  Hotels always charge
less when you don't want to stay there.

Also, it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that hotel chains
don't give you points for group rates.  That's been the usual policy
since forever.  And really, if you'd known you weren't going to get
the points, would it have made enough difference that you would have
stayed somewhere else?

R's,
