Hotels change ownership or sponsorship frequently. A favored hotel most likely still exists at the same location but under a different name.
Overbooking is an unfortunate reality of hotel reservations. Even credit card secured reservations. To provide some assurance that this will not happen to you, call ahead to alert the staff of your arrival time. They may also have your room ready if you arrive early. Do this for special requests also.
It is not uncommon for local ownerships to cease being a member of an international chain and still retain the chain's trade marked name. Particularly in countries the corporate hotel groups find it hard to enforce their trademarks. This gives the traveler a false sense of security. We urge all travelers to throughly research their destination prior to embarking on a trip.
