Most hotels do not send an email confirmation.

this has me a little worried as I at at the westin and its not showing up yet.
Just got off with the Westin, apparently they are forced to handle the reservations old school as the automated system did not download correctly.
FWIW, I'm staying at the Omni Severin and they attempted to charge my deposit and ran into an error and reached out yesterday, the 17th, for updated info. At that time they stated that if they didn't receive updated info by the 20th the reservation would be released. It was a simple fix to get me all set. So if you don't see your card charged, it's absolutely worth doing the due diligence and making a call.
So, my Hilton reservation showed up (magically) on my Hilton Honors account. I could see the confirmation number and used it on the Hilton site to verify I was seeing the same thing. I did. So, from that end, it looks good.
However, my CC hasn’t been charged yet. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. So I might still give a call to make sure all is well.
Just called Sheraton City Centre and they said they have not yet received the housing info. They are hoping to receive it by Monday.
