  1. In the future when referring to other threads it's better if you post the BB link where the other offer is mentioned rather than the PRICELINE EXPRESS offer. (as this will let us know how long ago the information you're referring to was posted/researched) Sometimes PRICELINE EXPRESS will give a detailed room description, sometimes a generic one, and sometimes none at all. This is currently the 5* hotel i'm seeing (confirm your dates on the landing page): 5* Mayfair - Soho for $194 Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ... the Waldorf London Hilton would still be my 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. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
  2. There is a map button that when clicked gives a pop-up window showing the zone on a map. but you would need to click each zone individually to find the area that you're looking for (could be cumbersome, especially for cities that you're not familiar with). What i recommend (and how i do it) is search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... you can see all of zones and boundaries in the PRICELINE TAB, then go to the EXPRESS TAB to select the zones you want and/or look for specific offers. Besides zone, you can also easily filter the results by star rating and/or use the price slider to only see hotels that are within your price range) Hope that helps.
  3. A new/update amenity set for the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek would be my best guess for this one... although an outside chance of the Wyndham Grand. 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 stay or how we can be of further help.
  4. Does this replace your previous Hotwire hotel request for the previous nite OR is this an additional nite that you need? Have you made any decision for the previous nite or canceled/changed your plans for that nite and no longer need a room? Please update/close your previous thread and then reply here... we will then have a look at your post above (and/or merge with your previous thread accordingly based upon your reply) 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. Thanks.
  5. The DC hotel market is very much driven by events taking place in the city (whether they be business conventions, congress/senate meetings, political protests, etc) and currently rates are high for these dates, with conventionally booked rooms starting at over $200+ per nite. If the Capitol Hill zone is acceptable i think you can get something in the $125 area... if not, and only the zones above are acceptable, at current rates i think you're likely looking at about $130-$150 for something in the Georgetown-Foggy Bottom zone (although a 4* here can likely be had for the upper end of this range). If your budget is firm and you don't mind changing hotels, is SPLITTING YOUR PRICELINE BID an option? (i haven't yet looked to see if this will help or not) 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 will advise accordingly.
  6. Please follow-up your previous Hotwire Destin and Toronto hotel threads with whatever you ended up doing for each of those trips, 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. Also, I believe 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. 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. Thanks.
  7. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received a nice deal at the hotel you were hoping for and that this property works well for your family's needs. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us confirm the new amenity set for this property in the Priceline Express Hotel List. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  8. Congratulations on your success! Hope you're happy with the hotel and deal you received and are looking forward to your arrival later today. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this property to the Hotwire Hotel List for this area.

  9. Both MGM and Caesar properties now charge for parking, so that eliminates about 90% of the strip properties if Free Parking is a must have (as opposed to a want). Is it better to save $75 on a really nice hotel room and pay $25 for parking... or save $15 on a hotel that you don't like as much but that includes free parking? When will your plans/dates be firm, as the hotels that are currently available may not be the ones that are offered once you're ready to move forward with a 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.
  10. gemo5566, The first post indicates that this was a PRICELINE EXPRESS offer. When bidding on PRICELINE there is no way to avoid the Trump, so if that is the goal, you'll need to use PRICELINE EXPRESS and/or HOTWIRE. This purchase may have been made a few days ago and only posted yesterday... or could have been only one or two rooms available at this price, and once that inventory was consumed the next best deal for a 5* hotel in the zone is shown (which currently is the $135/nite hotel). 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. Let us know whatever you decide to do for this trip (even if you don't use PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book thru conventional booking channels, etc) as this helps keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone, as well as a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your stay. If you decide to book a regular rate property it would be appreciated if you used our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com. Good luck!
