Unless the room was very expensive and unless you have some sort of written proof that you cancelled (or an acknowledgment from the hotel that they received the cancellation and failed to cancel the room) you may not want to spend the time. Otherwise you'd have to do some research to see where to sue them, and where/how you might be able to collect.
Do you want accurate, personalized, legal advice that you can rely on? You will have to hire an attorney, not ask on Avvo. I am not your attorney and am not creating an attorney-client relationship by this post. I am therefore giving only general advice. This advice may not apply to you or your situation; may not take account of all possibilities, and may not match the advice I would give to a client. DO NOT rely on this advice or any other advice on Avvo to make your legal decisions. If you want an answer to a legal question you should retain an attorney who is licensed in your state.
