LOL at all the seat changes! I finally figured it out for my friends - so ours is all done. I checked Hojos and still no availability for our dates I have just spoken with my travel agent and she said her wholesalers just give her generic rooms (eg no differentiation between standard/superior/etc), so she will look into it a bit more later. We really just want to avoid a freeway view! I understand that you can see the fireworks from the pool area anyway? So maybe we should request just a different building to be away from the freeway, and leave it at that? She is booking The Signature in Las Vegas for us (no resort fees for Australians!) And she will look into the Courtyard by Marriott San Fran downtown, as this looks like the best option to me (not too cheap and nasty, but not ridiculously over priced either, and still close enough to things without being in a seedy area - from what I gather from reviews online anyway). It's all coming together - but once it's all booked, what will I do with all my spare time?!
