An urgent question for a friend: your favorite survival tips for an awful hotel/motel? [more inside]
I'm going to be in Washington DC from late November and most of December, training for a new job. They're putting me up in an extended stay hotel, but it's doubtful that I'll have a car unless I rent one myself for weekends. First time in DC! I've never been away from home for for such a long period; I guess I'll turn off everything in my apartment except the fridge, have a friend pick up mail and help me deal with that kind of stuff, pay bills online. What should (and shouldn't) I take? This comes after a lengthy bout of unemployment, so cash reserves are very very low. How do I get a bunch of stuff there without paying exorbitant airline fees? What else do I need to be thinking about?

Do I have a legal right to cancel a contract with a UK company that has gone into administration and been bought-out?
What's the legality in the UK surrounding contracts signed with a company that goes into administration and is bought-out by a different company and re-branded? Is the contract still valid?

I need a hotel for 2 nights in San Francisco (10/31 & 11/1) next week. I'd like to be in the Fisherman's Wharf or Marina area, but Chinatown/Union Square area is OK if I can't find a hotel in the FW/M area. Ideally I'd like a room for $100 or less. I've checked the main travel sites, but the lists are overwhelming. It'll be 3 ladies, so cleaner, newer is best. I don't mind independent, older hotels as long as they're clean. Any suggestions or recommendations?

We are staying at an off-strip suites hotel in Las Vegas. Found bed bugs after our first night, and after an initially good response, we're concerned we're going to get the run-around from the hotel. Additional complications with pregnancy and chemicals mean that we need to be sure we're bug free without poisoning our little one, but I don't think the hotel has the same priorities...
