  1. Looks like a very nice deal for this stay, although sorry to hear this wasn't the style of hotel you were hoping for. Unfortunately 'boutique' is one of that amenities that is difficult to define. While a traditional definition is a small hotel (with small rooms) and personalized service, i think the definition has become broader over time and is now often applied to hotels that offer big fluffy duvets, high thread count sheets, and/or a modern style/decor (ie- the best example of this that i can think of is the 'W' hotel chains... many are quite large, but they can also still be classified as 'boutique' given the overall feel/experience that the provide). If the Le Meridien is not a hotel that you're happy with at this price then i would give HOTWIRE a call letting them know that this isn't the type of hotel that you were expecting based upon their 'boutique' designation and see what they are willing to do (think ahead of time of what you want from them... are you seeking a full refund, a discount off of this stay OR 'hot dollars' (their gift card currency) to use off of a future purchase, etc) Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us add the new amenity set for this property to the Hotwire Hotel List. If you do decide to pursue the 'boutique' designation with HOTWIRE let us know their response and if any resolution that is offered or that you could agree upon. Enjoy your stay.
  2. 5* North Strip - Grand Canal Shoppes for $148.00 Free Parking Resort Suite Casino Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> from the Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Palazzo so this would be my best guess for this one. tt You may also want to consider the following (confirm your dates on the landing page of the provided link below): 5* The Strip - Northeast for $150 Restaurant Airport Shuttle Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess here would be the Palazzo (and cheaper on an all-in basis than the one 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.
  3. Welcome to BetterBidding! What would you be your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes) for one of these properties? (it will be much easier for us to try to locate what we believe may be one of these properties than to research and type responses for each of the 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.
  4. 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. (so is not really a very meaningful bit of information, imo) The "Last person got __" information is relative to the last person who bought a hotel of this star rating in the zone, not necessarily in relation to the specific hotel currently being offered. If you'd like help for an upcoming trip please post the details of your stay / hotel offers (star rating, city, zone, room rate per nite, dates of your stay, and the amenities associated with the offer) and we will try to assist and help you land a more satisfactory outcome. 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- if you haven't seen it yet, check out our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE?? feature next to each offer in the EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com, as it sounds like it's something that you already try to use in your research, but we have put it all in one place for you to make it easy.
  5. Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your results with the board. I believe there were likely 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. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature). 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! Enjoy your stay.
  6. When clicking the GREEN 'See All Amenities' button next to this offer in the EASY VIEW tab i assume you're seeing: 5* Mid-Beach for $267.00 Pet Friendly Near Beach Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa ==> if this is what you're seeing, i don't have a guess for this property, but why take a chance on a HOTWIRE offer that has such a low 2.5/5.0 TA rating? What would appear to be a much better value, imo, would be this offer (confirm your dates on the landing page): 4.5* Mid-Miami Beach for $111 Pets Allowed Business Center Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess here would be the The Confidante - in the Unbound Collection by Hyatt Would this one work for your needs 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.

  8. Best guess/comments for each: Area: Castello - Sant'Elena Price: $94 p/ night Star: 4* ==> Best Western Premier Hotel Sant' Elena Area: San Marco - Dorsoduro Full Amenities: Free Internet, Internet access Price: $92 p/ night Star: 4* ==> this property is 40% recommended by previous guests, would this be a realistic likely option (when the hotel above is similarly priced and star rated but has a 4.5/5.0 TA rating? Area: Cannaregio Price: $129 p/ night Star: 4* ==> Hotel Ca' Vendramin di Santa Fosca 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.
