All I see available when clicking the link are rooms with 2 double beds, and this isn't a match to, which only offers rooms with 1 king bed.

Am I doing something wrong?

I just checked and Hojo is showing King Bed availability for many dates. They're likely just sold out for the date that you are searching. Try others.

The post said "This BRG appears valid for one night only ... New Year's Eve" which is the date I'm trying, and not getting king rooms.

Sorry, I didn't post this nor did I read what the post said about it being New Year's Eve only...

That being said, the reason you can't book a King is because demand took over and they simply sold out. We get around 10,000 visitors to this blog per day, so you have to be quick!

Wow, I am shocked!

Hojo raised their rates! And the King room (which was there when I posted) disappeared! This is weird! Someone must have reported my post to the hotel or the hotel staff get e-mail notifications from this site!

Changes don't happen this quick for a date that's months from now!

Now that I've calmed myself. I do believe you are right Dave, I think as people were booking this "King" room for that date for the BRG, they simply sold out of that room type. I hope if that were the case, they took screenshots or they're in trouble!

Keep checking back (in case of cancellations)
