I used a TA, which has been my biggest nightmare, but they have been able to give refunds to my guests who booked a while back now that the prices have dropped. The TA was working with Apple Vacations, which honors their lowest price and will match. The problems that I ran in to with my TA was that they couldn't keep my guests rooms straight booked them for wrong dates or never got back to them when they tried to call or email them. I had to get on to them a bunch.

So I guess prices didn't drop wherever you are - it's so odd. I've never seen rates this low, I'm trying to understand why they dropped so dramatically and suddenly. Does anyone have an idea?

I've been so stressed about this whole group rate thing as well, so many people are now saying they're going to book closer to the date so they're not taking advantage of the group rates expiring this month.
Do you have a TA? I would see if they can price match, they might be able to offer a one-time price reduction.
