Arena Hotel rescinded my booking one hour before my arrival. No reason given. I had to scramble to find a place to stay for the night. Good thing Orbitz helps you out.

I paid the full amount for my reservation upfront. When I showed up to the hotel, it was closed with a "CLOSED FOR BUSINESS" sign on the front door. There was no notice from the hotel or Expedia. I was stuck in the rain and had to find another hotel last minute.

2/10 Poor

Showed up on the day of my reservation just to find the hotel was closed for business. I was charged for a room and was not notified in advance that the hotel had closed for good. Now I'm having a hard time getting my money back. Contacted Expedia 6 days ago and have not heard back since.

DO NOT BOOK!!! Sold to the city for a homeless shelter but still takes your money through bookings and refuses to return it

2/10 Poor

They closed. They allowed me to book, and pay for the room then closed the hotel without contacting me. I booked this room months in advance. I showed up to check in with my whole family then head off to the retirement ceremony (once in a lifetime experience) and the hockey game. So it's not like we could just "go home". People were literally loading up trucks with couches etc from the hotel! I asked what was going on and the lady said we are closed!
