Run of House Hotel Rooms

I just found a new term called "Run of House" used in terms of hotel room reservations. It's quite interesting and worth! Whenever you get a hotel room reservation titled "Run of House" it probably is the best deal. Actually it is a deep discounted room. The rate of the room is far lower than the standard rates of the hotel. The only difference between a normal booking and a Run of House booking is that any particular room is not allocated at the time of booking, but the best available room is given at the time of check-in. You must be having a question — how is this the best deal? Here are the 2 important points giving answer to that…
• It's the cheapest rate, also called deep-discounted rate
• You get the best available room at the time of check-in. So if you are visiting at the time the hotel is less occupied, you may get a free upgrade to a suite or the best available room!

However there's a disadvantage too — if you end up being there at the time the hotel is highly occupied, you may get a bad-view room (say parking facing). But it's not important due to the following 2 points…
• You have got the best rate (10/10)
• Bad-view is just a probability (?/10)

I'm sure I will be searching for "Run of House" rooms/rates when making my next hotel reservation. The chances of getting better rooms at less price seem way more to me :)
