  1. 5* South Strip 9/29-10/2

    Welcome to BetterBidding! Actually, the Bellagio (as well as most 5* Strip hotels) charge more when booking rooms with 2 Queen Beds (vs. 1 King bed) What is the full list of amenities that PRICELINE EXPRESS associates with this 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.
  2. I noticed the link i previously posted was broken, you can try THIS ONE (confirm your travel dates and occupancy on the landing page) where you will see the all-in price is only $6 more per nite (and refundable)... and you'll know exactly what you will be getting. 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 whatever you end up doing for this trip.
  3. In the EASY VIEW tab of BiddingHelper.com you need to click the GREEN 'See All Amenities' button next to the offer t see the complete amenity set. Using this method you'll see the offer you listed has an Internet Access amenity in addition to the Free Internet amenity already listed. 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. Keep us updated on your progress and let us know whatever you decide for this stay or how we can be of further help.
  4. 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. 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: Free Internet Fitness Business Hi-Speed Internet -> if this is what you're seeing, unfortunately i don't have any insight into this one as a property with this amenity set has not yet been reported to the board and these amenities are common at most 4* hotels in this area I am seeing this 4* Jordaan - Canal Belt West - Ann Frank House hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $169/nite but is actually cheaper on an all-in basis given there is no resort fee indicated for this one with the following amenities: Business Center Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> my guess here would be the AMS Suites or the Room Mate Aitana (i'd slightly favor the latter as the more likely of the two, but you should at least be prepared for either), should these work for your needs this trip 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.

  7. Welcome to BetterBidding and congratulations on your success! Although your needs were not much for this stay, glad to see you received such a well reviewed property. Can you please add a reply to this thread with the amenities HOTWIRE shows for this property, including any 'accessible' amenities, when viewing this purchase using the MY ACCOUNT >> MY TRIPS link on the top right of their home page. 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, enjoy your stay.
  8. I'm not certain, but The Bric Hotel and Spa would be my best guess for this one. HOWEVER, if you are interested in this property it can be booked HERE (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $77/nite, but because of lower taxes/fees comes to only $6 more per nite, is refundable, and includes breakfast... this would be the safer way to go, imo, if this property is of interest. 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.
  9. Welcome to BetterBidding! I'm not currently seeing this property when searching PRICELINE EXPRESS for your dates... are you still seeing this on your own search? If you would prefer trying to bid on PRICELINE, let us know your maximum bid (so we don't suggest a strategy that goes higher than you're willing to pay) 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.
  10. My guess is that at current rates $100 will not be enough for a 3.5* or higher rated hotel. (you're more likely looking in the $120-$140 range in this zone.. if your budget is firm you can likely get something around the $100 or less area in the Crystal City or Dupont Circle zone) If you want to give it a try anyway, i would proceed as follows: When bidding 4* in the DC area you have FIFTEEN re-bid zones (at the 3.5* level there are EIGHT re-bid zones). 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. Select 4* White House... Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $80, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $85, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $88, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $90, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $93, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $95, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $98, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $100, If rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE, and repeat at the 3.5* level Any questions (especially confirming your re-bid zones with the board if you're unsure) 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. If rejected, let us know your thoughts as to how you'd like to proceed and we'll advise accordingly.
  11. Help identifying 4* hotel Orlando

    Use the amenities that are listed in the Hotwire Hotel List to see what it is that you should be looking for. However, i will add that you may be looking for a 'needle in a haystack' as although these property have been won and reported to the board, they don't appear that often, usually only during times of very low occupancy. You may get lucky and it appears for some dates that you search for, but with so many other 4* hotels in this zone, and HOTWIRE only showing a handful of listings at each star level per zone, the chances of one of these specific hotels being offered is on the low side. Is it the on-site perks that you're looking for in hopes of landing the Swan/Dolphin or some other reason you're hoping to target this hotel? What are your needs for this trip, as i have stayed at the Hilton Bonnet Creek and it's a great property, imo. 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. Keep us updated on your progress or let us know how we can be of further help with this stay.
  12. NYC - Help

    There is no one area of NYC that is going to get you close to everything... it is too big of a city for that. Mostly what you want to look for is a location that is close to the subway (ideally multiple subway lines) so that you can use your hotel location as a 'launching pad' to begin your daily exploration of the city, as well as conveniently return during the day to freshen up, rest, drop off shopping bags accumulated during the day, etc. With the above noted, this is during high-season for NYC and you'll be surprised that $225 all-in doesn't go as far as you think. Currently the best bang for your buck would be this 4* Midtown East hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess for this property would be the W New York which is not in the center of it all, but is easily accessible to most everything... St Patrick's Cathedral about 5 minute walk away, Times Square a 10+ minute walk (or take the E or M subway which is 4 blocks away... the E train can also easily get them downtown by the World Trade Center), Chinatown/Little Italy can be reached by the 6 train just 2 blocks away) Let us know your thoughts on either of the above (or how it goes if you purchase one of them) and we'll take it from there. 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. A litlte higher in price is this 4* Rockefeller Center - Bryant Park hotel (again, confirm your dates on the landing page) for $174/nite with: Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> the Club Quarters Midtown would be my best guess for this one which would be very centrally located with just a 2 block walk to the heart of Times Square and multiple subway lines and stations within a 3-4 block radius
  13. Help identifying 4* hotel Orlando

    I see this one now... A new amenity set and downgrade (since it was last reported to the board) of the Hilton Bonnet Creek 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.
