OK maybe it wasn't just me having credit card troubles with reservations this year. I've had a ridiculously hard time getting it fixed. The housing manager from Q-Rooms sent me an email saying my credit card was denied and they were going to dump my reservation. So I quickly called and fixed it (so I thought). Then I get a phone call from another person at Q-rooms saying they're going to drop my reservation if I don't change my card information. The hell? So I have them transfer me to the Sheraton and make sure my cc is correct (it still wasn't). Then I call the next day to make sure it's all worked out, and the Sheraton still has the incorrect cc number, so I fix it a third time. The incorrect number is nothing like my real number, so I have no idea where it came from.
All the while Q-rooms is telling me that they need to charge the first night as a deposit, and the Sheraton is telling me that's not their policy.
I just this morning had confirmation from Q-Rooms that my deposit was successfully billed (I checked to make sure) and that my reservation is intact.
