  1. Please need help ID'ing these hotels

    So we can replicate your search, please reply here with the dates of your trip above as well as the star rating and room rate per nite for each property.   As well, I believe there may be 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. If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to each of these listings, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed 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. In the future please use our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com for your regular rate booking when PRICELINE / HOTWIRE don't work for your needs. As well, we are also an affiliate of the MGM Grand properties which are accessible thru our Las Vegas Hotel Checker.   For the hotels above...   Best guess for the 5* Strip North property at $134/nite would be The Venetian... for the 5* Strip South property at $251/nite my guess would be The Cosmopolitan.   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 and how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  3. Las Vegas: 06/14-06/17/13 - Cosmopolitan is preferred

    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.   In the future please use our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com for your regular rate booking when PRICELINE / HOTWIRE don't work for your needs. As well, we are also an affiliate of the MGM Grand properties which are accessible thru our Las Vegas Hotel Checker.   Hope you had  a good trip.
  4. Congratulations on your success! Nice to see you received a good deal for this nite and that this property should work for your needs this trip. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  5. Please keep all posts for the same stay in the same thread. Once you win a hotel, use the 'ADD REPLY and REPORT WIN' button on the lower right corner of the page to edit the topic title to reflect your win and to provide the details of your purchase. This helps keep the board better organized by reducing the number of unresolved threads that don't have any follow-up or conclusion.   Please start by following-up your previous Hotwire Las Vegas hotel thread with whatever you ultimately decided to do for that trip, then reply here and we will have a look at the offers above.   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.   Thanks.
  6. When bidding 3.5* in this region you have ONE re-bid zone.  If you're not familiar with re-bidding please read Priceline Re-Bidding Explained and feel free to ask questions and/or confirm your re-bid zones with the board before proceeding.   I would try as follows in 3 steps:   Select 3.5* Sausalito - Mill Valley... Bid $150, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $160 If the above is rejected wait 2 hours and return to the board to use this link to re-access PRICELINE (and not the link in any emails that priceline may send letting you know that you're eligible to bid again)   Select 3.5* Sausalito - Mill Valley... Bid $170, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $180 If the above is rejected wait 2 hours and return to the board to use this link to re-access PRICELINE (and not the link in any emails that priceline may send letting you know that you're eligible to bid again)   Select 3.5* Sausalito - Mill Valley... Bid $185, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $190   If the above is rejected that the $193/nite offer thru HOTWIRE   Any questions feel free to ask.   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.   Good luck and let us know how it goes.

  11. NYC SEPT 19-22

    We can suggest a strategy for whatever dollar amounts you'd like, but at current prices i think you're more likely looking at the $250-$300 range for a 4* hotel in the Times Square zone (and more likely near the higher end of that range)   Using our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com what is the best rate you're able to find at an acceptable 4 star hotel in the Times Square area? (search '1 mile from Times Square NYC', filter the results to show only 4 star and higher properties, then zoom in on the map and look at the area surrounding Times Square)   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.
  12. Congratulations on your success! Nicely done!  Hope you're happy with the outcome and this property is convenient for your plans this trip. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  13. Congratulations on your success! Hope you're pleased with the hotel and deal you received and that this property will work well for your needs this trip. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this new amenity set for this property to the Hotwire Hotel List. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  14. Given the $99 rates you found for 3* hotels in this zone thru conventional booking channels, how much of a discount would you need vs. the $99 rate to make an opaque purchase worthwhile? (although i'm not sure i the $99 rate was for hotels in the Airport zone... i'm currently seeing 3 star hotels in this zone in the $109-$129 range)   Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board.
  15. An upgrade of the Holiday Inn to the 3.5* level since it was last reported to the board 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.
