Thanks for your feedback Beau, I’m aware of other situations. In this case the condo I stayed in was one of many condos managed by a single company through their expedia hotel listing. The desk verified that yes indeed the reservation was not for a specific room but any available, and that a room was assigned from their available 1 BR condos. The pictures were of a similar unit but not the same unit. Furthermore, they allow owners to list directly through AirBNB, so there would be no reason for the real owner (or even an authorized agent) to use Expedia (Why pay them an extra booking fee?). Try again.
