  1. You're comparing the 3 star Hotel Edison New York City to the 4* (and higher) hotels originally requested above. I think you have to decide if what you really want is the cheapest priced hotel possible... or if there is some value in a higher rated/better reviewed property for a little bit more. For example, while a 2* hotel at $150 with mediocre reviews may be a cheap price and a decent deal... a 4* hotel at $175 with excellent reviews would almost certainly be a better value. Regardless, it sounds like no matter what deal you find right now you would like to wait a week, so let us know once you're ready to move forward and we will see what is available at that point in time. 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.
  2. Have you yet made any decision for your Riviera Maya or Cancun hotel stays? Please post a follow-up there with your decision or current thoughts for each of those trips, then reply here and we will have a look at the 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. Thanks.
  3. At this time I don't see anything offered for your dates that would look to be the Sheraton. Let us know what you ultimately decide, and if you book this property thru conventional booking channels it would be appreciated if you did so thru our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com.
  4. ??? ??? 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. Thank you for closing this thread with your decision. 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. 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. I believe at least some of the offers above have 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. (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). If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to each of these listings, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Also, the above would require quite a bit of time to research, as i'm very familiar with NYC, let us know exactly what it is that you're looking for in a hotel for this trip, and your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes) and we will try to pick out the best offers that meet your criteria 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.
  7. Let us know once you're ready to bid as we will have a look at current rates at that time... no sense in researching prices for a bidding strategy at this time since rates could move higher/lower in the next few days, making any current strategy potentially too high or too low. You can bid using the PRICELINE tab at BiddingHelper.com or by clicking this PRICELINE link. Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board.
  8. Welcome to BetterBidding! When requesting hotel in addition to the information above please also include the full amenity set that is associated with the property. Assuming this is the offer you're referring to (confirm your dates on the landing page of the provided link): 4* Times Square - Theatre District for $209 Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess for this offer would be the Millennium Broadway New York Times Square Does this 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. Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.

  13. Welcome (officially) to BetterBidding... we've been waiting for your first post! Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your results with the board. Can you please confirm the address of the Extended Stay property that you received, as i see the Extended Stay America Huntsville-Us Space and Rocket Center is currently 2.5* rated by HOTWIRE, so i'm assuming you won a different one at the reported 2 star 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. THANKS!
