Weekend In A Four Star Hotel For One Cent!

 

Updated : Aug 17, 2009

A four-star hotel near Venice is counting the cost after mistakenly offering a romantic weekend in the Italian city for just one cent.

The Crowne Plaza in Quarto D'Altino, 15 miles from Venice, received bookings for the equivalent of 1,400 room nights on the night the rate was posted on its website, reports Metro.

The hotel initially thought the offer had been posted by a hacker, said sales manager Fulvio Danesin, but it turned out to be a mistake by the hotel's owners, the Intercontinental Hotels Group.

The offer was supposed to be for a two-night stay at half price. A night at the 151-room hotel normally costs between about £80 and £130.

The one euro cent rate was only available on Sunday night, but that was long enough for travellers to book dates running from October through to 2010.

The hotel stands to lose nearly £80,000 after 228 guests made reservations for the equivalent of 1,400 room nights while the error was on the website.

Spokeswoman Monica Smith said: "Although a pricing error, IHG is committed to honoring the one cent rate for guests who have a valid confirmation."
