  1. Congratulations on your success... looks like a nice deal and some good savings! Thank you for sharing your PRICELINE win with the board. Have a good trip!
  2. Congratulations on your success! (and thanks for the compliments on the site ) Glad to see you received the hotel guessed and that you're happy with the outcome. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great trip!
  3. Sorry to hear you received this unwanted 'upgrade'... PRICELINE EXPRESS may be a better option in this zone if you're able to determine the offer is something other than this one. Thank you for sharing your win and experience with the board. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Hope your future stays are more enjoyable and up to the star assigned rating.
  4. Best guess for this one would be the Little Boy Blue Motel. Again, you want to stick with hotels that are higher rated, higher percent recommended, and higher than a 3.0 TA rating. For the 2.5* Anaheim-Convention Center HOTWIRE offer, if you searching using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool and click the GREEN 'See All Amenities' button, do you see the following: Complimentary Breakfast Smoke Free Fitness Pool Business Room Accessible ==> if so best guess here would be the Comfort Inn and Suites Anaheim 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.
  5. Best guess for this HOTWIRE offer would be the Hilton Waikiki Beach, but i'm unable to confirm with a higher degree of confidence as i'm not able to find this hotel within the search results when i am searching for your dates... are you searching for something other than the default 1room/2adults/0children OR is that price not in USD? 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! Please repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, then list (you can copy/paste using the provided link) the amenities, including any accessible amenities, that are associated with this property and we will have a look. 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. 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 upper 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. I was going to suggest that we start over with the information directly above but i'm only see 1 out of 4 of the hotels above when i search for your dates... are you sure the zones you have listed are correct and that the dates searched are correct? Better yet... what exactly is is that you would like in a hotel for this trip and what is your maximum budget? 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.
  8. Welcome to BetterBidding! Best guess for this 4* Chicago Loop - Grant Park hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $136/nite would be the Hilton Chicago (NOTE there is also a 'No Smoking' amenity associated with this property if you click thru on the offer) Does this work for your needs this trip? If not, and you'd rather bid, please let us know: -are you willing to pay more for a 4.5* vs.a 4* OR if the goal the least expensive 4* or better for this stay -what would be your maximum bid ... we will then 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. Let us know how it goes (if you take the offer above) or how we can be of further help.
  9. I don't see any 2* hotel offered for $114/nite... what is the actual name of the zone as per HOTWIRE? What didn't meet your needs with the previously guessed Holiday Inn And Suites Anaheim? That property gets good reviews, is close to Disneyland as requested, and for $7 more per nite gets you a full star rating higher than the one above (and if cleanliness is a priority i'd suggest seeking out hotels that are higher rated than 2 stars... some 2* properties may very well be very clean, and a higher rated hotel does not ensure perfection, but you have a better chance of a hotel where the housekeeping is better trained and more likely to provide a better experience, 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.
  10. I may be seeing a different hotel for the first one, are you by chance searching for something other than the default 1room/2adults/0children? Here is what i'm seeing for each: 4* at $179/nite with: Boutique, Restaurant, Fitness, Smoke Free, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Roll-in Shower, Pet Friendly ==> guess for this one would be The Boxer (NOTE that this differs from the amenity set for the hotel you listed above, so that may be a different property if you're still seeing the amenities above) 4* at $168/nite with: Boutique, Restaurant, Fitness, Smoke Free, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Laundry, Spa, Roll-in Shower, Pet Friendly ==> best guess for this one would be The Onyx I will add that i'm also seeing the Omni Boston Parker House for $202/nite as well as the very highly reviewed Boston Harbor Hotel for $216/nite should either of these be 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 your thoughts and how you'd like to proceed and we'll take it from there.
  11. Welcome to BetterBidding! These are two different hotels... the "Last person got ___" information is relative to the last person who bought a hotel at this star rating in the zone, not necessarily in relation to the underlying hotel currently being offered. Since these are both 4* hotels, and in the same zone, that is why they are showing the same 'Last person got ...' information. However, I believe there are likely 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? Other than The Boxer are there any hotels you're hoping to avoid? Any hotels you're hoping to target? 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. Thanks for the follow-up! We have add this to the topic title so this will now appear in the Priceline and Hotwire Calendar of Wins. Glad to hear you had a great stay and this worked out well for your needs.
  13. Congratulations on your success! Hope this hotel works well for your needs and that you're pleased with the results. While the savings are not huge in dollar terms, this is still about a 20% discount to a conventionally booked room, which isn't too bad. Thank you for using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us add this property to the Priceline Express Hotel List. Enjoy your stay.
  14. Best guess this 3.5* Japan Town - Civic Center North hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) with the amenities above would be The Kimpton Buchanan... it's definitely not the Holiday Inn Golden Gate (if this is the one you were referring to on Van Ness) If you bid on PRICELINE you have to be willing to accept any hotel in the zone at the star rating (or higher) that you bid... so how do you avoid the Holiday Inn if bidding? 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.
  15. Welcome to BetterBidding! Nobody can say if rates will come down, or move higher, over the next 5 days... it all depends on how actual new reservations/cancellations come in relative to expected new reservations/cancellations. (more reservations/fewer cancellations then prices rise, and vice-versa). However, this close to arrival hotels already have a very good idea of their occupancy levels and they can't effect demand very much by lowering/raising prices (since most travelers already have their rooms booked and most potential guests can't just pick-up and travel on 2 days notice because the hotel price went down by $xx dollars) You're already bidding the 'main' tourist zones so adding another zones will likely put you in less central of an area. My guess is that you're likely looking at about $165-175 for a 3* hotel or $175-$185 for a 3.5* hotel. Assuming you're willing to increase your budget a bit, is the higher rated 3.5* hotel worth an extra $10-$20/nite to you?
