  1. First time bidder

    Welcome to BetterBidding! Exactly how high have you already bid for a 4* hotel in the zones above? 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.
  2. Help Bidding 4* Portland

    Please start by following-up your previous Lincoln Hotwire hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip. 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. The dates above have already past... did you mean this 4* Portland - Portland West hotel that i'm seeing for $166/nite for June 4-8 with: Pets Allowed Restaurant Airport Shuttle Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ... if this is the same property you're seeing and the correct dates for JUNE, then i would agree that this is likely the Westin and that would be my best guess. As far as bidding for this stay, The Press Hotel would be at least one other 4* hotel in this zone (there could be others as well) so if you are specifically trying to target The Westin then using PRICELINE EXPRESS would be the better option. 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. letusnkow
  3. Help ID 4.5 Star Magnificent Mile

    Welcome to BetterBidding! Can you confirm that the following is the 4.5* Magnificent Mile -Gold Coast hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) is the same one that you are referring to above that also include a No Smoking amenity: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> if this is what you're seeing, The Gwen, a Luxury Collection Hotel would be my best guess for this one. 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.
  4. Congratulations on your success! Hope you're pleased with the deal you received and are looking forward to your stay at this well reviewed property. Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us add this property to the Hotwire Hotel List. Enjoy your stay.
  5. I assume your dates are correct and this is a 4nite/5day stay, and also assume that you are not interested in the 'downtown Latin Quarter' zone (as you didn't include it above in the 3 zones that you did mention you were willing to stay) If correct, at current rates you're likely looking at the $110-$130 range to be successful for a 4* hotel for these dates.. a 3.5* would be in the $90-$110 range. Let us know your thoughts as to how you would like to proceed (star rating and maximum bid) and we will suggest a strategy for you to follow. 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.
  6. Welcome to BetterBidding! Prices are date specific, please post the actual dates of your trip and we will have a look at rates for these dates and offer our thoughts. 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.
  7. Baltimore, Inner Harbor

    Sorry about that... the Baltimore Harbor Hotel is now called the Radisson Hotel Baltimore Downtown-Inner Harbor. 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.
  8. Congratulations on your success! While perhaps not the hotel you were expecting, glad to see this worked out even than you thought and that you're happy with the results and the great deal that you received. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List with the new amenity set for this property. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your upcoming stay.
  9. Hilton Head area 4-star identity?

    I see this 4* Hilton Head Oceanfront hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) on PRICELINE EXPRESS for $119/nite with: Pets Allowed Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess for this one would be the Westin Hilton Head Island 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. Thanks for the follow-up... coincidentally just 1 day passed the 5 year anniversary of this stay.
  11. Help Identify priceline hotels

    I strongly disagree... the hotel is right near Penn Station (so a lot of police nearby) and i have no idea why anyone would make (nor did i see) any negative comments regarding the area at night (it's no better/worse than any other area of Manhattan, imo). You will not find any hotel in NYC where 100% of the people are 100% happy (although this hotel is pretty darn close!), and you should instead focus on the overall message from the vast majority of the reviews. It's also not far from Times Square... less than 10 blocks (which is nothing in NYC) and i will also add that you will likely spend far less time in Times Square than you think. However, it's your money and your trip, so we'll move on, but if this was my stay it would be a very easy decision and this would be the one i would be choosing (only a very small minority of hotels will receive a 5.0/5.0 TA rating, and of those that do, they aren't offered at $165/nite). For the HOTWIRE offers: 4.5* Times Square South $175 ==> The Premier Hotel New York 4.5* Chelsea- 4.5* $176 ==> Innside New York Nomad 5* Times Square North at $153/nite... full amenity set from BiddingHelper.com: Restaurant, Fitness, Complimentary Breakfast, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business ==> maybe the Westhouse but i'm not certain 4* Times Square North $163... i believe same hotel and full amenity set from BiddingHelper.com Restaurant, Fitness, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Blind Accessible, Deaf Accessible, Travel Accessible, Room Accessible, Bathroom Accessible, Handicapped Parking, Roll-in Shower, Pet Friendly ==> Crowne Plaza Hotel Manhattan (if you wanted this one i would try to find a better way to confirm it's the same property) 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 what you decide to do for this trip or how we can be of further help.
  12. As a sidenote, if you're using the Priceline Hotel List to determine your re-bid zones...DON'T do it that way (as per the message at the top of the hotel list). The only method that should be used to determine your re-bid zones is: Priceline Re-Bidding Explained Feel free to ask any questions you may have in this regard, or confirm your re-bid zones before your next PRICELINE bid.
  13. Sorry to hear that this may not have been the hotel you were hoping for, but this property has been reported to the board previously in this zone, as per the Priceline Hotel List. If this was an unexpected possibility feel free to ask the board for help before your next PRICELINE bid or 'opaque' hotel purchase and we will try to assist in a more favorable outcome. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Hope you're able to make this work for your needs and that you enjoy your stay.
  14. Help Identify priceline hotels

    Orlyb, Have you checked the Hotwire Hotel List for possible matches? But a better question would be WHY?? Above you have what is believed to be one of the top 10 rated hotels in NYC that is both brand new and well located... at basically the same price (or cheaper) than any of the other offers? What hotel(s) would you want any of the above to be that would be a better deal than the Even Hotel New York Times Square South... or is there something about this property that doesn't work for your needs?
