  1. Please follow-up your previous Priceline Toronto hotel thread with whatever you decide or your current thoughts for that trip. 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. For the offers above I believe for some 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. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature). 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 what i'm seeing for each: 4* HOTWIRE Downtown - Pike Place, Stadiums, Financial District for $98.00 Free Internet Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet ==> from the Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Silver Cloud Stadium and that would be our best guess for this one 4* HOTWIRE Downtown - Convention Center & Capitol Hill for $91.00 Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Renaissance Seattle Hotel is my best guess for this one 4.5* Downtown - Pike Place, Stadiums, Financial District for $108.00 Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Business Hi-Speed Internet Spa Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> Kimpton Hotel Monaco Seattle 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.

  13. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. When bidding on PRICELINE the star rating you select is the minimum that you're willing to accept... so in the situation above your 2.5* bid was upgraded to a 3.5* property. You don't say if your status with SPG would ordinarily entitle you to an upgrade to the club floor, but if you don't have any status with them (ie- Gold / Platinum) i would think your chances of being upgraded are low, if you have elite status then you have a chance, but regardless you should ask at check-in and perhaps hand your loyalty card to them along with your credit card and ID (typically asking if there is any chance of an upgrade to the club level as you hand over your credit card and ID) 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. Enjoy your stay.
  14. For a minivan i would start at $50, if rejected then try again using the following increments: $53, $55, $58, $60 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.
  15. Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your win with the board. To confirm, you actually used PRICELINE EXPRESS for this win?
