In the intrest of being fair on this matter I have to side with Alton, sorry. Say for instance a group of 20 people were going and booking 5 rooms and only one person had an annual pass and they booked everything, Alton would lose out.
That said, the rooms at both hotels are rediculously over-priced for what they are and in order for many people to stay, getting as much discount as possible is vital in some cases. Also if the T&Cs state up to 4 rooms then they haven't a leg to stand on.
Yarp.. I admit going crazy with like 5 or 6 rooms is asking a bit too much, but I dont think its unreasonable to ask for a little discount when you've got
1) an already loyal customer (AP holder) trying to make:
2) a substantial booking i.e. more than the ordinary person
If they aren't gonna do bulk discounts then it's only fair to give AP holders discount on up to 4 rooms. Think thats enough to ask for.
