  1. My guess for the Westminster property above would be the Dolphin House Serviced Apartments. 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.
  2. Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your win with the board, helping us add this property to the Hotwire Hotel List. Hope you're pleased with the hotel and deal you received and this property will work well for your needs this trip. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  3. It would be appreciated if you used our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com for your regular rate bookings (as it helps us keep this site running as a free resource for everyone) For the offers above 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 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 each of these listings, 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 each along with my best guess/comments: 5* North Scottsdale for $271.00 Resort Pet Friendly Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Fairmont Scottsdale Princess 5* North Scottsdale for $437.00 Free Internet Resort Pet Friendly Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia 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.
  4. Please start by following-up your previous Hotwire Chattanooga hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip... then reply here and we will have a look at the offer 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. 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.
  5. You can try using the CARS button of our sister site BiddingHelper.com... but one-way rentals are often difficult as PRICELINE only has bidding on a few select city pairs and the rental companies need to impose a one-way rental fee in order to make-up for the lost time the car (in your example) is not in Salt Lake City and/or the expense of getting the vehicle back to its 'home' lot. 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 back! 3* Disneyland - California Adventure - Anaheim for $85.00 Free Parking Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Smoke Free Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking ==> best guess for this property would be the Ramada Anaheim Maingate North 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.
  7. I have sent you a PM requesting some additional information so we can troubleshoot (as we have seen other NEW WINS posted to the board with any issues, and i have tested locally as well).
  8. The above is $100 before taxes/fees and has a 50% recommendation... i could maybe understand maybe considering this one if your needs were minimal and it was a very low price, but this one isn't even within your budget. Within your budget for your complete stay i'm seeing (confirm your dates on the landing pages of the provided links): 2.5* Tampa Airport West - Rocky Point for $59 Pets Allowed Free Parking Free Internet Free Breakfast Indoor or Outdoor Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> my guess would be the Extended Stay America - Tampa - Airport - Memorial Hwy. 2.5* Tampa Airport South - Westshore for $66 Pets Allowed Free Parking Free Internet Free Breakfast No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> likely the Extended Stay America - Tampa - Airport - Spruce Street Both of these also seem to be offered for your subset dates of 3/7-3/10... any interest in either of these for all or part 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.
  9. By creating different classifications within each zone it enables them to show more hotels at each star level... previously you would only see one hotel at each star level in each zone, but with the new classifications there are more offers for each search.
  10. Welcome to BetterBidding! How about any of the following: 4.5* Rockefeller Center for $197.00 Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> best guess would be the Warwick For each of the following confirm your dates on the landing page of the provided link: 4.5* Grand Central Terminal - UN for $215 Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Even Hotel New York - Midtown East 4.5* Empire State Building Area for $226 Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> The Kitano New York or the Gansevoort Park Avenue NYC Are any of the above 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.
  11. I will need about 45+ minutes to research the above so need to wait until have that much time in one chunk... please reply to this thread in 3 days if not already responded to. Thanks.
  12. I'm sorry we missed your post from 2/14. Usually we are very good about making sure all posts are replied to, but occasionally one does slip thru the cracks. (we usually say if your post is not replied to within 24 hours to give it a new reply so that it goes back into the queue to be reviewed) If this was a hotel that you wanted why didn't you take it when offered above? As you can see the offers (and prices) can change quickly, so you should be ready to commit if a good deal appears for your dates at a hotel you want. Ignore the "The last person got ___" information as it is relative to the last person who bought a hotel of this star rating in the zone, not necessarily having anything to do with the underlying hotel currently being offered (so the "last person got" property is a possibility since it is a hotel of that star rating in the zone, but is not really saying anything about the underlying hotel currently being offered to you) Given your plans... the museums and aquarium are in the southern part of 'downtown' (south of the river) where as most of the 'action' is in the northern part of 'downtown' (north of the river)... so i think you need to make some sort of decision if you're looking to be closer to the shopping, restaurants, nightlife, etc OR closer to the museums/aquarium that you are planning on visiting. This will also give AaronJB more information to go on to advise once he sees this thread. Although i will add that i am seeing this one (confirm your dates on the landing page of the link provided below): 4.5* Downtown - River North for $88 Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess here would be The James, which was also just recommended in another thread: This would put you in the heart of the city (it's just north of the River, so you can easily access things to the north as well as easily walk south to the Art Institute (about 20 minute walk... half that if you take the train or bus)... the Aquarium is further south and you would probably want to bus/taxi there unless you enjoy longer walks; as noted above, you have to make some choices as there won't be one location that is near everything you want to do If looking for a high-end steakhouse there are many to choose from but Gibson's is a Chicago classic (it was close to our hotel so we chose that one and enjoyed your meal)... for deep dish Chicago there is the original Uno's (first location), Due's (their second location), Lou Malnati's, Giordano's, and Gino's East which all are usually among those mentioned when discussing the 'best' Chicago deep dish. 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 in regards to location and/or your thoughts on The James above (or how it goes if you decide to take that offer)
  13. I don't have any personal experience with Montreal, but you can find the information you're looking for using our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com (which was designed exactly to answer the types of questions you have above)... 1) search '5 miles' from 'Montreal, Quebec, Canada' for your dates 2) on the left side of the page use the 'Search by Hotel Name' filter to enter the names of the hotels above one at a time (after you select the first you can then type the 2nd, 3rd, etc) 3) now that you have filtered the results to the 3 hotels above, you can click the marker on the map for each (or click the hotel name from the list) to open the info bubble for that property 4) near the bottom of the info window is a link to 'SEE NEARBY Restaurants, Coffee, Bars, etc.' which will show you the WalkScore for each property and what is nearby (Restaurants, Coffee Shops, Bars, Entertainment, Shopping, etc) 5) click BACK TO HOTEL MAP to repeat for each hotel Some quick observations/comments: -two hotels have a Walk Score of 99 and the other a Walk Score of 100, so i suspect you will be in the 'heart of the city' and have plenty to see and do in the immediate area regardless of which one you choose -the Sofitel and Omni are a block away from each other so little difference there in terms of location, the InterContinental closer to the waterfront -i don't know how often mass transportation is used in Montreal, but the Sofitel and Omni are close to subway line 1 and the IC close to subway line 2 -i would eat breakfast apart from the hotel as it's usually overpriced and expensive ($25-$30 USD/pp is not unusual) and you can get a better value, and find some local gems that will offer a better value (this is just my personal preference, if you love buffets and don't mind the high price tag, by all means eat at the hotel) So i would first figure out which places (restaurants, bars, attractions, etc) you want to visit and determine of one of the hotels above is closer than the others for most of what you want to do OR that offers easier subway access to most of what you want to do (you probably won't find one hotel that is near everything, so choose the one that is near most). The last comment is to keep in mind that the offers above could disappear at any time, so you really want to do your research sooner rather than later to increase the chances of the one you want still being there when you're ready to commit.

Let us know what you decide and how it goes or how we can be of further help.
  14. Congratulations on your success! While perhaps not your first choice of hotel in the zone, glad to see you're familiar with this property and pleased with this property for the price paid (less than half of the regular price of the Sofitel that you were hoping for) 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 fun in Chicago.
