  1. The only thing i'm currently seeing near your $190 target is a 4* HOTWIRE MTE property with Restaurant, Fitness, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Tennis, Spa, but the amenities are too common for this area that i don't have any insight into narrowing down this property. I believe this 4.5* Lower East Side hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $217/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> is likely the Hotel Indigo Why not the St Giles The Court given that it would be convenient to the 7 Train to get to the US Open?

  2. Sorry to hear the hotel was unable to provide a restful night's sleep but glad to hear that PRICELINE was sympathetic to the situation and was able to refund the balance of the stay. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. When you have a moment can you please add this win to the board as a NEW TOPIC so that it will appear in the board's Priceline Maps and Priceline and Hotwire Calendar of Wins. Glad to see you found a good replacement that should suit your needs for the balance of your trip.
  3. Congratulations on your success! Nicely done! Hope you're happy with the results and looking forward to your trip. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Have a great stay!
  4. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List with the change in zone boundary for this location and the new amenity set for this property. Sorry to hear you're disappointed in the outcome, but the amenity set above has never been seen with the Park Lane, so not sure why you thought that was the likely outcome in this instance. Feel free to ask the board for help before your next opaque hotel purchase as we can often confirm (or negate) what you think you may be about to purchase and help you obtain a result that is more within your expectations. Also, for the future Note that the crossed out rate is an average price of hotels of this star rating in the zone for your dates, NOT necessarily the rate of the hotel currently being offered. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Hope you enjoy your stay and time in NYC.
  5. ??? Using the method above this is what i'm currently seeing at the 4* level in this zone for $343/nite when searching for your dates 2adults/1child (and note the offer may have changed since you included Free Internet above whereas the current offer i'm seeing below does not state this amenity): Resort Beachfront Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Spa Childrens Activities Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> if this is what you're seeing, i would agree with your guess of the Grand Wailea 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. Nobody can say if rates will come down, or move higher, between now and your trip, but i think the near $100/nite rate is an excellent deal for a 4* hotel in the city (especially when searching for quad occupancy) and already reflects the weekend timeframe (as noted, the next cheapest 4* hotel is nearly 50% more expensive) I will also add that thru the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW TAB (and the clicking the GREEN 'See All Amenities' next to this listing) i'm seeing a few more amenities then what you posted above: Free Internet Smoke Free Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> if this is what you're seeing i'd agree with the guess of the Hyatt being a likely candidate 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 if we can be of further help.
  7. Did you bid the complete strategy above up to $160/nite? If not, at what price did you stop? I'm not currently seeing any 4* hotel at $158/nite in the Union Square zone on HOTWIRE when searching for your dates, are you still seeing this one on your own search? 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. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see rates came down a bit for you and that you're happy with the hotel and deal you received. Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List with the new amenity set for this property. Enjoy your stay.
  9. I'm not seeing any 3.5* PRICELINE EXPRESS hotel offered for $85/nite in any zone within this area when searching for your dates... are you still seeing this offer on your own search? 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. Welcome to BetterBidding and congratulations on your success! Looks like a very nice deal for these dates with some good savings! Hope you're pleased with the outcome and this property will work well for your needs this trip. 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.
  11. Please conclude your previous Hotwire New Orleans and Midtown East New York City hotel threads with whatever you ended up doing for each of those trips, then reply here and we will 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. (and will also avoid any delays in having your future posts responded to) Also, are you searching using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool and clicking the GREEN 'See All Amenities' button next to the listing? (as this is the only way to confirm the complete amenity set associated with the current HOTWIRE offer) 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. For this 4* ESB hotel (confirm your dates on the landing page) with Restaurant and No-Smoking i would lean towards The Marcel At Gramercy Park as the more likely of the two. Does this work for your needs? If not, i'm very familiar with NYC and if you let us know more of what you're looking for in a hotel for this nite, and your maximum budget (before fees/taxes) we will try to see if there is anything else that meets 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 how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  13. The Homewood Suites by Hilton Eatontown (previously the Staybridge Suites) would be my 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.
  14. Congratulations on your success and thank you for closing this thread with your win. Please remember to follow-up your threads with your results/decisions as you receive them so that the information can best help others in a timely manner. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Hope you enjoyed your stay.
  15. As noted in your previous thread, i'm very familiar with NYC... if you let us know exactly what it is that you're looking for in a hotel for this stay, and your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes), we can pick out the best options that meet your needs for this trip. What is your objective in a hotel for this stay? What don't you like about the offers above (so we get a better sense of your likes/dislikes in hotels) 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.
