  1. I tried bidding, started at $21 Strip SW, added Central E $23, then Central West at $24, all denied. Just went with the PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal with the 5% off coupon available here on BB. I used the PRICELINE link from BB, and here are the amenities. Thank You Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  2. NICO, You can call Hotwire, and they will take your transaction over the phone. One time I had no power for my computer, and needed a hotel. I called Hotwire and the agent read each available hotel and the amenities to me over the phone. I took the first 90% approval property, it was great, half off retail too
  3. Thank you for the followup Kyle. I was reminded of your issue while reading some hotel reviews for the Excalibur. Someone that posted a review a few days ago had their reservation to Red Rock changed to the Excalibur on very short notice due to 'overbooking.' I'm so happy that HOTWIRE gave you a heads up and gave you a nice hotel too
  4. Looking at the PRICELINE EXPRESS Deals, it appears you have 3 different strip properties that can work. 3 star SW $74, 3.5 SW $87, and 3.5 Center East $95. I would guess they are Excalibur, Luxor and Ballys. Depending on which star category and location you liked best, bidding would use different strategies. Afterall you don't want to end up with Circus Circus , Stratosphere, Palace Station etc... with poor choice of rebid zones. The simplest least expensive would be start at $65 3 star SW, if denied add Central East, then Central west as rebid zones maybe 68, then 71? Similar strategy if going after 3.5 SW with 78 and 82?. Going after the 3.5 Center East leaves you with just Center West as a rebid zone $85 then 88? If you want to be near your friends, try for Excal and Ballys. Luxor looks close but its a pain to get to MGM quickly. Excal might be the quickest, but if you are Ballys, then you are closer to the center which is where most want to hang out edit- If you bid on PRICELINE, it doesn't mean you will get one of the PRICELINE EXPRESS deal hotels.
  5. There are lots of good deals on these dates. Luxor and Excalibur were 39/40 on PE, so figure those were 36ish bidding. Cosmo was $85, Trop was 55, Monte Carlo was 43. I didn't want to get stuck with a bad room at Monte Carlo with the construction, otherwise I would have grabbed that Anyways, Hard Rock was an unlocked PE deal for me, at $24. Started at $20, declined added Center Strip at $21 and accepted
  6. $126 for a weekend, is a very good deal. Ive stayed there twice through HOTWIRE since Doubletree upgraded the property. Its a nice as any other 4 star, just a low action casino. Ask for a Paradise Tower Strip view when you check in. They seem to be available because they are generally 2 Queen bed rooms, and people often want a King when checking in. If you don't mind the Queen beds, the view is great
  7. Bump, in case your request was missed by the experts btw-I'm not seeing that 4.5 property now, but another for $205. The Boutique description you saw would indicate the possibility of the Cromwell, as its been previously shown as a Boutique Hotel in its description per the Hotwire hotel list that you can look up on this site
  8. Its $214 now, and I would guess Wynn. The only other 9+ North Strip with a Casino is Palazzo
  9. That hotel came up on a recent search of mine, I thought it was the Howard Johnson Anaheim/Fullerton Conference Center. But just a guess
  10. I received the Doubletree Hotel Santa Ana/Orange County Airport on 201 East MacArthur Blvd, it looks to be in the same Hutton Centre Business area as the Club
  11. Started Bidding for a 2.5 star at $66 in Dana Point declined, added Laguna, then Newport and won for $70 Thank You I use BB PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links for all my purchases
  12. While Pelican Hill looked good, I ended up going with a Hotwire 11/5-7 3.5 star John Wayne Airport for $78 won- Doubletree Hotel Orange County Airport (85% approval) Complimentary Free Internet Amenities Airport shuttle Business center Fitness center Pool(s )Restaurant(s)
  13. Yes, that's the amenity set I'm seeing thru BiddingHelper.com Free Internet, Resort, Fitness center, Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Spa services, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking
  14. 2 people 2 nights 11/6-8 Newport Beach Fashion Island $195/nt Complimentary Free Internet Amenities Business cente rFitness center Golf nearby Resort Spa services Accessibility Accessible path of trave lIn-room accessibility $30 Resort fee 4.5 TA rating 1000-1500 reviews Is this Pelican Hill?
  15. PRICELINE EXPRESS Deals were 5 star strip South $86. 4 star South Strip $59, and near strip East for $41 I took a shot at 5 star strip South(Vdara) starting at $70 up to $76 by 1s using the numerous rebidding zones for a 5 star, all declined then 4 star North strip(Linq) starting at $40 up to $46, 2 rebids using South Strip and Lake both declined then 4 star East starting at $35 accepted at $38 using South strip North Strip and lake I used BB PRICELINE links for my searches and purchase. I am delighted with my purchase but was somewhat annoyed with some outrageous Priceline counteroffers. I was counteroffered with properties that weren't anywhere close to my bidding areas with higher than market prices, like $200-300?
