Have you ever booked a hotel room and realized later that you could have gotten a better price elsewhere?

Did you know that most major hotel chains guarantee that you’ll find the lowest price for a room on their website?  And if you find a lower rate somewhere else, they’ll match or beat the price (and sometimes give you other goodies, like a free night!).
