  1. 5* Las Vegas (Strip North) The Venetian

    Congratulations on your success! While perhaps a little more than you originally had wanted to pay (or that you had seen earlier) glad to see you received one of the hotels that you were hoping for and are looking forward to your arrival. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  2. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see it was the hotel guessed and that you're pleased with the outcome. I know a little bit about this area if you have any questions. 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.
  3. Montego Bay

    Thank you for closing this thread with your decision. If you purchased a PRICELINE or HOTWIRE hotel for Cancun can you please share your win with the board in a reply to this thread... if not, it would be appreciated if you booked your 'regular' hotel purchases thru our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com. Have a great trip.
  4. We may be talking about two different trips as your previous thread was for a stay from Sept 24-Oct 4 of last year. For the HOTWIRE offer above, are you still see this one on a current HOTWIRE search and are you including 2adults/1child in the search... as i'm not seeing any 4* hotel in this zone around $75/nite when searching for your dates and 2adults/1child. 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.
  5. 2 weeks in NYC - Best strategy?

    You could get a noisy hotel downtown... or you could get a quiet hotel in midtown. You know just how light of a sleeper you better then we do, but street traffic in NYC is substantially less in the wee hours of the nite vs. during the day, so personally i wouldn't make that as part of the decision. With the above noted, i don't think you will hear much vehicular traffic at most hotels, if you do hear noise it will more likely be sirens (police, ambulance, fire, etc)... and this could happen just about anywhere in the city. If most of your activities are in midtown keep in mind that downtown would be a bit less convenient, so ultimately it comes down to what is more important to you for this 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. Let us know what you decide or how you'd like to proceed and we'll advise accordingly.
  6. Bos Logan Car Bid

    Changing the Car Class does count as a change that will let you bid again immediately. 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!

    So with demand high, available inventory low, and the best available rate at $43... why would a rental company want to sell a rental at less than half the prevailing rate. If you go to the 'Priceline Retail' of the CARS section of BiddingHelper.com, you can enter a $35 at the top of the rental box and on the next page see the total. You can then hit the BACK button on your browser and adjust the bid price up/down to determine how high you can go in order to beat your current back-up reservation. Looks to be it's about a $43 bid (assuming your rental is for 5 calendar days and your pick-up/drop-off times don't put you into a sixth rental day). So if you confirm the number is $43, it becomes a question of how much savings you would need in order to make an 'opaque' rental (where you don't choose the rental company and the reservation is non-refundable) worthwhile. For some they need at least 'x' percent savings... for others if they can save $1 total they would take the cheaper opaque purchase. 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 whatever you decide to do for this rental or how we can be of further help.
  8. 3* Plymouth MA

    Thank you for closing this thread with your decision. If you didn't, please remember to use our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com for your regular rate bookings. Have a good trip.
  9. 3.5* in Los Angeles: El Segundo-Manhattan Beach

    Please start by following-up your previous Hotwire Key West hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip, then reply here and we'll have a look at your post 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. As for the property above, I believe there are likely more amenities then what you have posted 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? 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.
  10. New Orleans

    Welcome to BetterBidding! 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 the 4 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates (you can ultimately purchase using the Hotwire tab of BiddingHelper.com as the easy view will typically not the show the bed type, but you can use the easy view tab to see the full amenity set, then purchase the same listing thru the 'regular' Hotwire tab): Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible ==> if this is what you're seeing, my best guess for this property would be the Royal Sonesta New Orleans 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.
  11. Bos Logan Car Bid

    With many Boston residents not owning cars, and looking to get away for the long holiday weekend, i suspect that rates are high for this rental period. Using the CARS radio button of our BiddingHelper.com tool, what is the best rate you're able to find (per day before fees/taxes) for a rental during this timeframe? 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. PS- please remember to conclude your Priceline Plymouth hotel thread with whatever you ultimately decided to do for that trip (even if your decision is to keep your back-up reservation)
  12. Welcome to BetterBidding! When posting please include the amenities that PRICELINE EXPRESS associates with the property. It his the 3.5* Ediston - New Brunswick - East Brunswick hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) you're seeing with: Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> if this is what you're seeing, the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick would be my best guess for this one 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.
  13. Thanks for the follow-up! When you get a minute can you please post this win to the board in the Priceline - Pennsylvania section of the board. I'm confident you will enjoy them both... glad to see you're partaking of what the city has to offer! Enjoy the rest of your trip!
