  2. Congrats on your success! Certainly seems like a terrific deal for this property! Glad you are pleased with the win and are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  3. Seems like a great deal. I suspect this is the same four-star hotel available in an PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal for this area for $75. Amenities for this hotel include: Free Internet (in Public Area) Non-Smoking Gym Restaurant Handicap Accessible Business Center It doesn't say free in-room wifi, but this discussion notes that while it's normally $13/day (ouch!), they provide it free to Marriott frequent guest members, even if the reservation was obtained through third parties like Priceline.
  4. Ideally, I would love to be somewhere between 43rd to 48th and between Broadway and 8th Ave. As I am going to be seeing lots of shows, it makes it more convenient to the majority of theatres. I hope to do some rush/lottery as well for some of the shows, so I may be going to theatres up to 3 times in one day and I have found it easier to pop out of my hotel and get in line before 8am if I am only a couple blocks away. I have been to NYC a lot. I usually stay in this area. I have probably stayed in about 15 properties in this area, several of them multiple times. I am not going to be doing any sightseeing. Basically my days will be in the Times Square area. At night after my shows, I take the subway down to Christopher Street and meet my friends at a bar. My favorite properties are the Hilton Garden Inn on 8th and 49th, The Belvedere, the Westin Times Square and the Millenium Broadway.
  5. Sorry to hear this wasn't one of the properties you were expecting/hoping for, but hopefully it will suit your parents' needs and they will enjoy their stay (they'll be happy just being around their child) Feel free to ask the board for help before your next opaque purchase and we will try to assist in a more satisfactory outcome. (and if you've had more than 2-3 wins over the 10+ years since joining the board please begin to share your results so that others can benefit from the information) Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases. Enjoy the time with your family in town.
  6. Congratulations on your success! An incredible deal with some very BIG savings! Glad to see you went for it and that was one of the hotels you were hoping for. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great trip!
  7. Ah, the sweet taste of a great deal :-) Got the Dolphin for $87! 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek area $87.00 /night 8.0/10 Guest rating Amenities listed on Hotwire: Business center, Fitness center, Golf nearby, Internet access, Pool(s), Resort, Restaurant(s), Self-service laundry, Smoke-free rooms Full amenities from BiddingHelper.com: Resort, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Spa services, Children's activities, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower Thank you for the help, thereuare!
  8. So I was trying to land the Westin Galleria for my parents coming to town and Hotwire raised the price on me while I was paying for it so I got annoyed and decided to give PRICELINE a shot. They have this property (secretly) listed on Priceline Express as a 4* hotel but I've stayed there before and nothing about this hotel is 4*. Much more like a 3*. Hotwire correctly lists this hotel as an Addison location, which is accurate, but Priceline calls it a Galleria North property, which isn't accurate. So while I am disappointed (in both Priceline and Hotwire), I wanted to share these facts with BetterBidding readers looking for a 4* in the area. Stick to the Westin Galleria or Le Meridien Galleria when booking in this area. Priceline Express Listed Amenities for 4* Galleria North Hotel (Intercontinental Dallas): Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  9. When closing your thread please indicate what you did do for the trip, not just what you didn't do (as this is more helpful to future readers of your thread) For the property above I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature). If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 4 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates: 4* Savannah Historic District North - East for $153.00 Free Parking Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Spa Childrens Activities Wheelchair Accessible ==> if this is what you're seeing, best guess for this offer would be The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases. Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  10. Thank you for closing this thread with your decision. Please remember to follow-up your threads with your wins/decisions as you make them (even if you don't ultimately use PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book direct, etc) as this help keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone... as well as being a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your travel plans. Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.
  11. I followed up to it, thanks
  12. Ended up with a discount rate at a different hotel but appreciate all the help!
  13. Sorry to hear the hotel didn't have all of the amenities listed, but glad that you were able to get it straightened out with HOTWIRE and they refunded your purchase. Even thought this purchase was refunded, as this is a new property for the Hotwire Hotel List, we will use this thread to reflect the purchase (so that every hotel in the hotel list has a related thread) and please start a NEW TOPIC if you'd like help in finding a replacement property for this nite.) and Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. PS- glad we got the subscription issue settled, i haven't made any widespread changes on the backend so hopefully fixed for future threads that you subscribe to as well, but i hope to confirm how to make these changes widespread throughout the board so that it's resolved going forward for anyone that was encountering this problem. Thanks for letting us know about the issue and confirming the fix i implemented was successful.
  14. Welcome to BetterBidding! I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature).

Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 5 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates: 5* Islington - Shoreditch - East London for $129.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Indoor Pool Fitness Pool Restaurant Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Spa Childrens Activities ==> if this is what you're seeing my best guess for this one would be the Town Hall Hotel and Apartments Does this work for your needs? If not, let us know more about your needs for this trip (minimum star rating, maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes), etc) and we will try to advise further. Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases. Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  15. Just firmly tell then "no" and not to bother you anymore. If they give you another offer call HOTWIRE and let them know that you're being harassed and that you'd them to call the hotel on your behalf and have them backoff. Is there a specific timeshare property in particular that you're looking to avoid? (as i may be able to rule out a specific property, but i can't make a blanket statement for "all timeshares in the area") Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.
  16. I'm very familiar with NYC and will offer some thoughts and ask a few questions... What is the location that you do want? (and why?) You're not too late (and perhaps a bit early) but that doesn't mean you shouldn't pick up a great deal if you find one. ... and i think this stay is an ideal candidate for SPLITTING YOUR PRICELINE BID as chances are that the hotel with the best deal over New Year's Eve is not necessarily going to be the hotel with the best deal over the entire 10+ days. Let's start with your thoughts as to only staying in the Times Square (and/or the immediate surrounding area) and we'll take it from there. Also, have you been to NYC before or is this your first visit? Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.

  18.

Closing prior threads is greatly appreciated, as the information helps others researching their stay and it keeps the board organized. Thanks again.

  20. I was looking for 3 rooms near Love Field; started my bids at what I thought was low ($65) -- ACCEPTED. Hilton Anatole. Frustrated with so many rebid zones, I may have overshot unexpectedly. Happy with the win overall. Used the PRICELINE link.
  21. I ended up booking through the BiddingHelper.com which is great tool that I didn't know about. Unfortunately the hotel I got for $99 didn't have all the amenities that was listed and I spent a hour trying to get them to rebook or refund my money. They ended up refunding me. It was the courtyard Marriott colonnade It was colonade-Inverness listed at $99 today its $102. Here are the amenities below. The hotel does not have airport shuttle Free parking, Free Internet, Indoor pool(s), Airport shuttle, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower
  22. Hi all, Thanks in advance, I'm looking at this deal from hotwire in London but worried about the location being too far from public transportation and helping identify the hotel would be of a great help. 5 stars London, Islington - Shoreditch - East London area March 1 to March 4 $129 Boutique hotelFitness centerIndoor pool(s)Pet friendlyPool(s)Restaurant(s)Self-service laundry
  23. I have made a change to settings... can you please reply here, or send me a PM, if you received notification that this reply has been made? Thanks.
  24. 4 star Savannah historic district north east area Friday 4/21- Saturday 4/22 $156 and $25 resort fee due at hotel business center, fitness center, restaurant, pool, pet friendly, free parking, free internet Smoke free
  25. Thank you! Are there any of the 4-stars hotels in the Bonnet Creek area that can be ruled out based on the price/rating/amenities? Would prefer to not end up at a resort where they try to sell us a timeshare.
