Expedia.com Informative - No discounts - Expedia
When using Expedia one should always go to the hotels web page to check on the real price. What you will find is that you are paying the same room rate if you booked with hotel directly. The only difference is that Expedia gets 25-30% commission from hotel. Expedia orders get the worst rooms because the hotel makes way less money than if you booked directly.
You loose nothing by booking directly and usually get a way better room for the same $ and you have a better relationship with the hotel rather than showing up as a discount seeker. That is why Expedia dose not post the hotels web page. Just enter name of hotel as a keywork along with the city and you will find the hotels web pages. Makes a difference and remember if there is a problem with your room the hotel can make changes where they can not with Expedia because Expedia has your funds not the hotel. The hotel does not get $ for weeks. So who would you give your best room to. A person that is paying 70% and will not be paid for weeks or to a person that paid 100% on the spot. Expedia also owns Tripadvisor and manipulates the reveiws so that they get the best commissions. Try it you will see what I am talking about!
