    Keep in mind that if you bid on PRICELINE the hotel you receive the first nite may not be the same hotel you receive for the subsequent nite(s).   Is the idea of SPLITTING YOUR PRICELINE BID to take a guess as to what you will receive for the longer purchase, a cheaper hotel since you're arriving so late, staying closer to the airport, etc... why do you hope to gain by making one purchase for the first nite and then a second purchase for the balance of your 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.
  2. Have you made a decision for your second leg yet, since as you can see from your search experience in both threads, the offers can change quickly... what you like in the other thread may not be offered if you're simply 'watching' it for now (and then it's back to the drawing board) The first is not the Vista Cay... and i'm doubtful the second is the Embassy Suites, but HOTWIRE is down for me at the moment so i'm not able to investigate further as to which i think these may be.... please bump this thread in a few hours when hopefully HOTWIRE will be back up and running.   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.  
  3. Yes, the hotel offers can often change very quickly. Have you already made a firm decision to split your stay?  Have you yet made a commitment for the second leg of your trip?   I haven't research all of the hotels above yet, but assuming your guesses are correct, which would be your first and second choices?   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.
  4. Free internet,  free parking, children's activities, resort, golf nearby, business center, restaurant(s), spa services.      Additional amenities: Fitness center, near beach, pool(s), self-service laundry Used better bidding HOTWIRE link                            
  5. Can i ask what dates you're searching for, as i just searched for 2/14-2/15 and see the following amentiies in the EASY VIEW tab for the 2* hotel offered at this price: Pool, Complimentary Breakfast, Free Internet, Business, Kitchenette, Laundry, Free Parking, Room Accessible   Is this a different property than the one you purchased, as this offer has the same 2.5/5.0 TA rating as the Rodeway Inn?   Thanks!
  6. Congratulations on your success! Nicely done!  Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and saved a bit of money as well. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this property to the Priceline Hotel List. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  7. Help in Yucatan

    The Priceline and Hotwire Hotel Lists are updated any time new information is reported to the board and we don't see that much activity in this area.   If there are any PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE offers we can often take an educated guess as to what it is that is being offered, but this can be a time consuming process, so please wait until your plans are firm and you're committed to this trip before having us do the research (as well, hotel inventory can change very quickly, so hotels that are currently offered may not be the ones available once your plans are firm and you're ready to move forward)   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.
  8. 4 star in Toronto airport east Help

    If not are there any offers of interest in PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE that show a Shuttle amenity 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. Let us know what you ultimately decide or how we can be of further help.
  9. ID for Union Square hotels

    Please start by following-up your previous Hotwire San Francisco hotel thread with whatever you 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. (and will also avoid a delay in having your future posts responded to)   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.  
  10. Welcome to BetterBidding!   If this was a PRICELINE or HOTWIRE purchase can you please post your win to the board as a NEW TOPIC so that others will be aware of the win for these dates and it will appear in the Priceline and Hotwire Calendar of Wins.   Best guess for both the HOTWIRE and PRICELINE EXPRESS offers above would be the Hilton San Francisco Financial District (so take whichever is cheaper or the one that gives you the bed choice option you would like)   Note that fewer and fewer hotels in the United States are built with balconies.  You may get some properties that have them if they took over and converted a building that was originally built with a balcony, but few are built from the ground up with balconies (i'm assuming due to liability reasons)   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 with this leg of your trip.  
  11. Welcome to BetterBidding!   Few comments/questions... Is the Hotel Zephyr the only hotel you're willing to accept for this trip or are you willing to accept other properties? What is your maximum budget (per nite before taxes/fees) for this stay... are you willing to pay $200+ per nite this trip? Thru the following link you can book the Hotel Zephyr (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $211/nite, so if this is the hotel you really want, what is the point of researching the $200+ per nite hotels above? The 'retail' side of HOTWIRE is powered by Expedia and the star ratings shown on the retail side is not necessarily the same as what is shown on the 'opsque' side of HOTWIRE.   I'm not currently seeing the 4* hotel you list above at $131/nite, but i think i'm seeing the same property listed at $167/nite.  If we're seeing the same property (are you still seeing this listed at $131/nite??) my guess for this one would be the Hotel Zephyr, and i'm fairly confident it's not the Best Western.   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 based upon the above and we'll take it from there.
  12. Congratulations on your success! (and thanks for the compliments on the site too!) Glad to hear this property will work well for your needs and that you find it to be a good value at this price. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay and have fun with Mickey!
  13. 20/04 - 24/04 Washington DC Hotel

    Great... we will have a fresh look at everything when you bump/reply to those threads.   As per above, we don't even know if the offers previously discussed are still available which has a domino effect of derailing all the planning for the other legs of your stay.   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.
  14. 20/04 - 24/04 Washington DC Hotel

    Hotel inventory often changes very quickly, so what is currently offered may not be what is available once you're ready to move forward and commit to a purchase (or the rate may have changed no longer making it a viable option)   Any hotels researched now, or a bidding strategy based upon current rates, may not necessarily be valid when you're ready to book.   Let us know once you're ready to move forward with your purchase(s) and we'll be happy to look at whatever is available for your trip(s) at that time.   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.    
  15. I don't have firsthand experience with either... both get good reviews, but the reviews for the Metropolitan by COMO are better.   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.
