  1. Please post to the board is US Dollars so that rates are consistent and not subject to interpretation based upon future currency fluctuations. For this 4* Mitte - Alexanderplatz - TV Tower for $71 (confirm your dates on the landing page) Business Center Free Internet No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> my best guess would be The Weinmeister Berlin-Mitte Does this work for your needs? If not, and you prefer to try bidding on PRICELINE, which zone(s) do you want to include in your bidding and what would be your maximum bid? 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. If no bed choice is shown by HOTWIRE (or PRICELINE EXPRESS) then the room type will be assigned by the hotel... HOTWIRE guarantees sleeping accommodations for everyone that you include in your search. Did you need a specific room type/configuration for this stay? Will you be more than double occupancy? 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. Researching hotels can be a time consuming process, so please don't ask for hotel ID's until you're ready to book, as the hotels available 5+ months ago (or even 5 days ago) may not be the ones that are offered once you're ready to commit and make your purchase. Guesses/comments for the hotels above (confirm all dates on the landing pages): 4* Central Park South for $240 Business Center Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> no guess 4.5* Central Park South for $301 Pets Allowed Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Warwick New York 4.5* Rockefeller Center - Bryant Park for $261 Pets Allowed Business Center Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> The Royalton 4.5* Times Square - Theatre District for $292 Pets Allowed Restaurant Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> The Muse Do any of the above work for your needs? 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.
  4. Thank you for closing this thread with your decision. 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. Have a great trip.
  5. Yes, both the Holiday Inn Lower East Side and the Wyndham Garden Chinatown have been seen with this amenity set, so that would remain out best guess for the HOTWIRE offer 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. Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  6. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, a few comments: 1) at the moment our BiddingHelper.com shows a 2.5* hotel in this zone for $63/nite, which is nearly a 40% discount to prevailing rates available to the general public (ie- non-military rates), which sort of negates your larger theory above (although not to say the savings were not there at the time you had booked, perhaps just unlucky in regards to what was available at that moment) 2) Smaller hotel markets have less competition and hotels don't need to discount as much, so in smaller or rural areas where there are not many hotels, you may not see as much of a discount as in other larger cities (such as NYC, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc) where the savings can still be quite substantial. So in one area the discounts may have dried up a bit, there are other locations where there are still very deep and substantial savings to be had 3) some hotel markets have gotten stronger over the last few years, so in many instances occupancy rates are up and hotels are not willing to discount as deeply as they may have years ago. In these instances, revenue models have also improved (with the increased processing power that computers have today vs. 10-15 years ago) so hotels are now able to better analyze data and adjust rates more frequently to maximize their revenues. 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. Welcome to BetterBidding! You can start with our Priceline and Hotwire Calendar of Wins to see if there have been any wins reported to the board for these dates. Note that the Hudson Hotel is a 4* rated hotel in the Central Park South zone, which while well located, has notoriously small rooms (even by NYC standards)... would this be an acceptable outcome? Lastly, i will add that at current prices i think you're likely looking in the $170-$200 area for a 4* or better in one of the zones above, i also have found the following: 4.5* Central Park South hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $178/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center ==> best guess here would be the Le Parker Meridien New York which would seem to be a good deal given the higher star rating and a nice discount vs. a conventionally booked room here Does the PRICELINE EXPRESS offer linked above work for your needs or do you prefer to try bidding on PRICELINE? If bidding, so we don't suggest a strategy that goes higher than you're willing to pay, let us know your maximum bid, as well as if we should include/exclude the CPS zone, and we'll take it from there. 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. If you are interested in The Godfrey i believe it is also this 4* Boston Common listing (confirm your dates on the landing page) which would be a buck cheaper on an all-in basis: Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities 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 which service you use or how we can be of further help.
  9. Caesars would be my guess for this one... not likely The Mirage since they (along with all other MGM properties) now charge for parking. 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.
  10. 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. 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 the full list of amenities i'm seeing for each: 4* at $163/nite with: Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Wheelchair Accessible ==> best guess for this one would be the DoubleTree by Hilton New York City - Financial District 4.5* for $191/nite with: Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> the W Hotel Downtown would be my guess here 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. Good luck!
  11. Are you ready to book this trip now... what didn't you like about any of the previous hotels researched/guessed 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.
  12. Welcome to BetterBidding! Using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool, HOTWIRE has a 4* hotel in the Chelsea zone fro $179/nite with: Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Fitness Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> best guess for this one would be the Hotel Indigo Chelsea New York Does this work for your needs this trip or did you want to try bidding on PRICELINE (possibly a slightly lower price but no ability to guess the hotel that you may receive)? 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. Not sure of your needs for this stay, but how about the 4.5* Empire State Building HOTWIRE offer fro $224/nite with: Boutique Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Childrens Activities Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> best guess for this one would be The Kitano, which gets good reviews Does this work well for your plans this trip?

  15. Welcome to BetterBidding! For this 5* Chelsea hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) with the amenity set above, my guess would be the Kimpton Hotel Eventi. In the Lower East Side i'm also seeing what looks to be the Hotel Indigo Lower East Side New York for $263/nite should this be of any interest.
