For which hotel by chance?
Yes, I got an email from OnPeak too.  I received a room at MGH from forum member and gave my 2nd round Hotel Republic to a forum member.  I sent OnPeak a reply saying they aren't duplicates.  Hopefully they will see different names on the reservation, credit card and email.

Does anyone know if Hotels give you a hard time about adding on a night's stay through another site that's not OnPeak?

I was thinking about staying an additional night, but it's cheaper to book directly through the Hotel for Sunday night rather than using OnPeak. Does anyone know if the Hotel makes you check out and check back into another room for the one night OR will they let you stay in the one room for the duration of your stay?

I've done this at nearly all of our WonderCon and SDCC hotels stays. Plus I have done this on various vacations when we added a day. It's never been a problem -- of course, it's always the same room type too. Just tell them when you check in and they are usually happy to help.

Anyone else running into resistance from Onpeak getting a room transferred over? I was generously given a room in the exchange, but I've hit a speed bump from OP (or maybe just one operator) who wouldn't let anyone who wasn't the original booker make changes. This is my first time trying an exchange, so I'm not sure how smooth the process usually is.

Nope! A forum member had an extra room and offered it to me before dropping it and now I can't even get the name or credit card changed. According to OnPeak, they've changed things this year!
"Keep it that way." He told me as i walked off - his devilish smile lingering between us when i turned to look back him.

Wow..this sounds like a hugely inconvenient change. ???

onPeak will not change the credit card once the deposit is made, you will have to do that when you get to the hotel.
In order for you to check-in, you will need to get your name added as an occupant (roommate).  If this is a single room that is not part of a room block, the original owner should call onPeak to add your name.

Did the person giving you the room call themselves? I'm sure they wouldn't change it with just you calling, but if the person who reserved with the card calls, they've been good about changing things. I've done this with a 3-way call with OnPeak (me + person I was giving it to + OnPeak).

They did. They were wonderful about it. I dunno, I guess because this is my first time, I thought it would be slightly easier. But im good now! Just waiting on July to get here! :)

Anyone else still waiting for a refund? I've been patient...but my friend refunded a room before the may 10th date and got it back in 2 days. I cancelled ON the 10th...and still waiting. Same credit card company/type/rewards.

I got refunded the following week and I cancelled a room on the 10th. You should give OnPeak a call if you're still waiting.

When we patch together rooms, can we do it under the same account, or should we create separate OnPeak accounts?  For instance, if I have a room for Saturday/Sunday, and I see a room for Thursday/Friday, can I book the room for Thursday/Friday using the same account I used to reserve Saturday/Sunday?

Of course I look up onpeak's number start to dial this morning and thought I'd check my CC one last time, and there mt refund was today. 1 day after my CC cycle ends. If I planned to call last week I'm sure the universe would've made it so the refund came in then.

Ah...I think  you may have to keep them as separate then if different locations/hotels.

I should remember but I'm drawing a blank.  Does the rest of my balance for hotel get charged by onpeak automatically or do I pay to hotel when I'm on site?
