I know that if you modify a reservation you risk paying a higher room rate. Do you also risk losing your reserved room type if you are just shortening the length of a reservation? I can understand that happening if you are lengthening a reservation and the room type is no longer available on the additional day(s), but theoretically it shouldn't happen for shortening a reservation. Thanks.
I read this wrong initially. It's about whether or not the hotel gives you the same type of room if it's shortened, right? I would think you might even be able to get a better room if it could be upgraded to a shorter time length. If it's like a vacation, you can often get better rooms at non-peak times of the week than you can if it includes a weekend. I usually like to book on Sunday through Thursday for that reason. Lower points or rates and better room choices. The room comparison reservations can usually help you decide.
