  1. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received a nice deal for this stay and are pleased with the outcome. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add the amenity set for this property to the Priceline Express Hotel List. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  2. At current rates i don't think you're going to see anything near the $100/nite level for your dates, but you can probably be in the $140-$160 area for a 3.5* hotel if you're flexible on zone(s)... is the Lower East Side zone acceptable? If so, which others? What is the date of the $100 Doubletree win? 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. Is SPLITTING YOUR PRICELINE BID an option?
  4. Right, the festival is bringing in higher than usual demand which in turn is causing higher than usual prices... so previous winning bids on other dates are not really applicable in this situation. I had you go to MAPS and HOTELS.com to get an overview of pricing to see that $75 (or even $100) is not likely realistic based upon current prices. Let us know how you'd like to proceed, or whatever you do end up doing for this trip, and we'll go 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.

  6. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add another hotel to the Hotwire Hotel List. Hope you're pleased with the hotel and deal you received. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy this leg of your trip.
  7. Congratulations on your success! Hope you're pleased with the outcome (looks like a very limited number of hotels in the area) and that this will work well for your needs this trip. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this property to the Hotwire Hotel List. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  8. Given that the Super 8 is sold-out for this nite, and the very high prices i'm seeing at hotels that are available in the city, i assume there is some event taking place during this nite? (the Toronto Urban Roots Festival perhaps?) Using our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com (use the filters on the left side of the page and zoom in on the map)... what is the best rate you're able to find for a hotel that meets your needs in this area? 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. Congratulations on your success and hank you for sharing your results with the board, helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List with the new star rating for this property. I believe there may have been more amenities than you listed in your post, which would not have been seen unless you searched using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. Can you please add a reply to this thread confirming the full list of amenities associated with this property (including any accessible amenities)... you can still view this information by going to HOTWIRE and clicking the MY ACCOUNT link near the top right of their home page. 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, and have a great trip!
  10. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you're pleased with the outcome and looking forward to your arrival later today. 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.
  11. If you're seeing this 5* Chelsea hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) with the amenities above for $155/nite... best guess for this one would be the Kimpton Hotle Eventi. 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.
  12. The issue is that PRICELINE only guarantees double occupancy, after that it's at the discretion of the hotel, and the property may not be able (or willing) to accommodate your request for a room with two beds; this is less of a risk in a city like Orlando that is accustomed to catering to families and they have a high percentage of rooms that can accommodate quad occupancy vs. a city like NYC where space is at a premium, rooms are typically smaller than you will find in most other locations throughout the country, and rooms with 2 beds are often considered an upgrade (and cost more) than a 'standard' room with only one bed. HOTWIRE allows you to search for up to quad occupancy and guarantees accommodations for everyone that you include in your search, but as per above, searching for more than double occupancy (in NYC) will often increase the price vs. when searching for only double occupancy. You can decide how much risk you're willing to accept (ie- booking for only double occupancy but showing up with four guests), but if looking to ensure accommodations for everyone in your family i think you're likely looking at the $285+ range for something at the 4* level. 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 and how you'd like to proceed and we'll take it from there.
  13. Are you searching for something other than the default 1room/2adults/0chldren as i'm not seeing the 4* offer above when searching for your dates. I'm seeing this 4* hotel offered at $185/nite with: Boutique, Restaurant, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Laundry, Blind Accessible, Deaf Accessible, Travel Accessible ==> this amenity set has previously been see with the Radisson Blu Edwardian Berkshire Hotel so that would be my best guess here The only 3* i'm seeing in this zone for your dates is priced at $239/nite. I'm also seeing this 4.5* Mayfair - Soho hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $184/nite with: Restaurant, Free Internet, No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> the Sanctum Soho Hotel would be my guess here if this works 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 for this trip and how it goes or how we can be of further help.
  14. Welcome to BetterBidding! With so few amenities (and so many hotels in this area) i'm not certain of the offer above, but a guess would be the Residenza Montecitorio. However, why this property?? For $2 more per nite why not the 4* that has the same amenities (Free Internet, Airport shuttle, Internet access)... i don't have a guess for this property, but generally speaking an extra $2 is worth the full jump in star rating. What are your needs for this stay and your maximum budget? (per nite before fees/taxes) 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. Welcome to BetterBidding! I'm not certain of this property... a guess would be the Rodeway Inn Estes Park, but i'm not sure. What about this 3* Estes Park hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $67/nite with: Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> my guess here would be the Rocky Mountain Park Inn Does this 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.
