Some days before, I had seen an option to select rooms myself. But now, I don't see that option. Can I select room numbers myself?
There is an option to select room by yourself. But the option disappears during busy times. When the number of vacant rooms falls below a minimum level, the option automatically disappears as we cannot guarantee that you get the same room that you selected. Therefore, during busy seasons, you cannot select room numbers yourself, they are assigned automatically by the system.
