  1. Please start by following-up your previous Priceline NYC hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip, then reply here and we will have a look at your post 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. Also, 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) 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? 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. Best guess/comments for each: 4* Hotel 119 per night ==> Grand Sierra 3* 103 per night ==> Best Western Airport Plaza Hotel You may also want to consider (confirm your dates on the landing page of any links provided below): 4* Reno Central - Airport (RNO) for $114 Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Airport Shuttle Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center ==> Grand Sierra Resort And Casino 3* Reno Central - Airport (RNO) for $91 Pets Allowed Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Best Western Airport Plaza Hotel 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 how we can be of further help. Good luck!
  3. Every company determines their own booking fees. Both PRICELINE and HOTWIRE don't charge any booking fees on 'regular rate' bookings (as this enables them to be competitive with other booking sites)... but both do charge a booking fee on the 'opaque' side of their service (which is more specialized, and therefore less competition, so they are able to charge a fee for this side of their service). Sometimes is costs money to save money.
  4. chobo2, Just in case the OP does see / reply to your post... Free Breakfast is not a standard amenity at Courtyard properties so i would not expect breakfast to be included. I would research beforehand, as being Portland, there are likely some really cool, local, breakfasts spots. Enjoy your stay.
  5. Another job well done! Glad to see you're pleased with the hotel and deal you received and this property will be convenient for your plans this trip. Thanks again for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board for your searches/purchases. Have a great trip!
  6. Congratulations on your success! Nicely planned out and executed. Glad to see you're happy with the results and looking forward to your trip. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  7. My best guess/comments for each: 5* Center strip - fountains for $ 211,00 ==> Vdara (or slight chance it's the Jet Luxury at the Vdara) and 5* Center strip - fountains for $ 214,00 ==> from the Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Aria so that would be my best guess here If you are willing to pay the prices above you could also consider this offer which would come out to be slightly cheaper than either of the above (confirm your dates on the landing page): 5* Las Vegas Strip South for $204 Pets Allowed Business Center Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> my best guess would be the Vdara Hotel and Spa at City Center Las Vegas 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 how we can be of further help.
  8. If you do decide to stay in LIC i would sooner recommend splitting your stay with the first half of your trip in LIC and then the second half of your trip within Manhattan. While LIC does often offer a cheaper alternative to Manhattan, you do lose quite a bit of the 'NYC vibe' which is part of what makes NYC so special. From LIC most people would commute to Manhattan via the subway (rather than Uber or Lyft) as it runs frequently, is reliable, relatively inexpensive, and no traffic to worry about. You should be able to get something within your budget regardless if you decide to spend all of the stay in Manhattan vs. splitting the trip, it more so comes down to what type of experience it is that you're looking for and if the savings of staying in LIC are worthwhile (in exchange for the 'pulse' of Manhattan) 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 once your plans are firm and you're ready to book and we will begin to look to see what is available for your dates.

  12. bclayton, Sorry this one didn't work out as expected. To confirm, this was a PRICELINE EXPRESS purchase? (or HOTWIRE?) Assuming PRICELINE EXPRESS, when you clicked the link above did you get a message that the hotel was no longer available and you could choose from the other offers on the page OR did it take you directly to the purchase page but with a different price? (or did you do a new search and clicked the $96 offer from the results page?) Thanks.
  13. Congratulations on your success! Looks like a nice deal for the NYE holiday since i'm sure the city will be quite busy over these nites. 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... and have a Happy New Year!
  14. We can't see the hotel names either, so while i can't be 100% certain that the hotel above is the Treasure Island... i am sure it is not SLS; as the current HOTWIRE offer has a 4.0 Tripadvisor rating, where the user review rating of the SLS is less than this. If it did turn out to be the SLS you would have good reason to request a refund from HOTWIRE since the hotel received does not match the user review rating as to what was shown prior to your purchase. 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. Confirm your dates on the landing page, but i do believe the best guess for the following would be the MGM Grand: 4* Las Vegas Strip South for $91 Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Rooms are generally booked 'run of house' meaning that they are assigned at check-in. You can make whatever requests you'd like at check-in, but whether the hotel is able/willing to honor your request (or whether it's a complimentary upgrade or requires an additional fee) depends on a lot of factors including: hotel occupancy levels, what rooms are available at the time of check-in, price difference between the room type you've been assigned and the room class you want, mood of the front desk clerk, etc. 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.
