  1. The HOT DEAL I booked for 12/11 was listed as a 4*. 
  2. I tried to bid for a 5* in Wailea-Makena for $319, got rejected. Added Kihea at $339 and got rejected.  Then I read somewhere that resorts are considered higher than 5* so if you add areas you may end up with a resort in an area you don't want.   SoI got cold feet and ...   I chose the Hotwire "Secret Hot Rate" deal for a 5*, assuming it was the Four Seasons for $376/night.  Amenities listed were pet-friendly, fitness center, internet access, pools, business center, tennis nearby, spa services. It did end up being the Four Seasons.  Total for 7 nights was $2632 + 479.02 taxes and fees = $3111.02.  Priceline and Hotwire listed price was $489. I hope this includes the resort fees, but I have no idea.    
  3. I am interested in bidding for a 5 star hotel in Wailea, Maui area.  I believe there is only one hotel, the Four Seasons.  On Hotwire it looks like I can get a 5* for $381/night in the Wailea-Makena area "Secret Rate Hotels". Do you believe this is the Four Seasons? Is there any way to know what the additional fees are (the real price?). The dates are 1/23-1/30.  I was thinking of naming my own price (through Priceline). I think I understand the rebidding process, but I'm not sure if there are any "rebidding zones".  Thank you.
  4. The hotel was for the night of 12/11 (I booked it 12/10).   Ended up being a great stay - they upgraded us to a bigger room with a mini kitchen!!
  5. I was looking for a hotel in mid-town East, I was booking tonight for 12/11.  There was a HOT DEAL for a 4 star in this area for $189.  With tax it was approx $239, and it was the Residence Inn on 48th between Lex and Third.
  6. I was in a rush today ... First bid $70 for a 3.5 star hotel in Zone 7, Valley Forge.  It wasn't accepted, so I rebid for 3 star hotel at $80.  I ended up at Valley Forge Casino Resort - Casino Tower.  With all the hotels in this area I never even thought I would end up here.  It's okay... but next time I'll stick with the 3.5 star hotels.  With tax about $95.
  7. Originally bid $70 for Dupont Circle Area. Rebid at $93 and got Washington Marriott Wardman Park.
  8. Used "PRICELINE EXPRESS deals". Made reservation on 1/25. Price was $74, additional taxes and fees were $19, so total was $94.
  9. Used "express deals", 3 stars, King of Prussia. This was great hotel with HUGE room. Really about the size of a suite. Big living room area with l-shaped couch, and king sized bed. Would easily accommodate a family of 4.
  10. Used PRICELINE EXPRESS deals, 2.5 stars for Allentown, PA. Made reservation on 1/20.
  11. Made these reservations on morning of 2/15. I bought two rooms because we had two teenagers with us and we weren't sure if we would get two doubles or a king. Good thing because hotel was nearly sold out due to volleyball convention and they only had king rooms left!
