    for my vacation my parents booked a two night stay at the five star hotel in Atlantic city, resorts. we were planning to view the U.S air show, thunder over the board walk. once we got to the casino it was around 12 30 am . we went to the main desk and asked for the keys to the room, the main desk man said the rooms were sold out and they had no rooms left.

    the drive back home was three hours long and my family and i were all exhausted from the trip, they said there were no rooms anywhere Else, and we were forced to return back home as our last resort.

    my family is very angry, and their main concern was why would the hotel guarantee the rooms(we reserved them), and later send us home we came early and applied to all the qualifications.
    is there any way i can sue the hotel, if not what should i do, what is some good advice.
