The best option is to have your dad add you as an authorized user on the account and get you a second card.

I've booked using Hotwire and was not required to show the credit card I booked the room with. However, I was required to have a credit card on file with them. I would imagine you can post a deposit in cash, but, it may be a few hundred dollars. Why don't you call the hotel directly and ask?

Default Using your dad's C/C.......

We most certainly do look at c/c and a matching ID. If the ID don't match the credit card, no matter who the card belongs to ( momdad) it won't be accepted. Be prepared to call the card holder and have them be prepared to answer the question of the last four digits of that card your trying to use

That's because hotwire is a third party, the credit card you use is not the credit card that we recieve. Third party billers, utilizes thier own credit card for the room only. Upon check in thier credit card is charged right away, and the card you give us is used for incidentals only.
