  1. FULL AMENITIES: Free parking, Resort, Casino, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Spa services, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower
  2. Went back and looked. It just had those 6 listed. It does have the following accessibility details: accessibility for visually impaired Accessible bathroom Accessible path of travel
  3. This choice gave me a choice of beds as I needed to make sure we had 2, which in SF is sometimes a challenge. Listed amenities: Free internet, Pet Friendly, Boutique hotel, Restaurant(s) internet access, fitness center
  4. Was 98% sure this was the property being offered thanks to other threads whereby BetterBidding staff had suggested it was likely, but no previous wins were reported. The description and amenties (especially the bed choices) lined up so I was able to save about 15-20%. Free parking Free Internet Beachfront hotel airport shuttle Fitness Center Restaurant(s) Pool(s) Self service laundry Internet Access Golf Nearby Tennis Nearby Spa Services
  5. Unfortunately I cannot retrieve this info as I booked it without signing into HOTWIRE, as it was for my daughter and I used her credit card.
  6. Last minute deal: Free breakfast Free parking Free Internet Pet friendly Fitness center Pool(s) Business center Self-service laundry Northwest Austin zone
  7. amenities: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Indoor pool(s), Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Accessible for visually impaired
  8. Started with a 3-star bid around $95 and rebid just adding a zone at a time (3 of 4 have 2.5 and 3 star hotels). No luck up to $115 final bid. Closed browser window and restarted process from betterbidding link again and repeated said strategy above using 2.5*. 4th and final bid was accepted increasing $5 each time.

  10. That's the full list of amenities. Also, "last person got ......" was a clue and thats all I meant to imply Since no condo of any rating had ever been reported here as a win, and then I saw that the last winner with that rating won this property, that's a good clue. I saw it had 100% appoval on only a few reviews. Went to Trip Advisor and saw similiar high satisfaction rating including a complaint from someone who stated they booked it thru hotwire..... So while it wasn't guarranteed, I had a good clue given above. In the worst case I was prepared to take a deal others have raved about, whatever condo property it was. The reason I was focused on this property? I want a view from my room. A "beachfront hotel" is no guarrantee of a view. However this property states on their own webpage that every room has an ocean view.
  11. this one came up and so did a little message stating the last person who bought got "littlr creek cove". no previous wins reported but my research stated it shouuld be good so I went for it. Amenities: Free parking Free Internet Beachfront hotel (website states all units have an ocean view. Full kitchen Internet access Golf nearby Used BB HOTWIRE link as always.
  12. Free parking Free Internet Pet friendly Airport shuttle Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access $66. Saw what I believe to be same offer on PRICELINE EXPRESS deals for $62 but didn't show user ratings. Hotwire showed 85%, Needed airport shuttle and all airport area hotels were offered >$100 so this looks great.
  13. linked to PRICELINE from this sight. Didn't bother with a comprehensive bid strategy because I didn't have a lot of time. Started with one of the Midtown areas and $165. Added MSG area at $172. Then added another area at $177. Finally added Empire State Bldg area at $185. Won.
  14. Used the above link for HOTWIRE. This was for 3 people, not 2 even though there will be two adults. I wanted to increase the odds of having 2 beds rather than 1 king (which from their website is an option). The rate for 2 was about $9 cheaper than rate paid.
