  1. Underbid PE by $5 as usual and got it. Currently the only 4.5* hotel in Milwaukee, so you know what you're getting. A great deal, as it was half what their own nonrefundable rate was. Pets Allowed Business Center Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  2. The location option specified DFW South, and Comfort Suites as the only option - so I selected that. Yes - the address is 4940 W Airport Freeway.
  3. Started out bid at $59, but rejected - seems every time it will undercut PE price by $5, that's it. Rating 7.0 Free Parking Business Center Airport Shuttle Free Internet Free Breakfast Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  4. I'm listing this as Hotwire, when in fact I did it via Expedia Secret Rate [which owns Hotwire] as the amenities/star/reviews [1000-1500 4* average reviews at TripAdvisor] were the same in both, but Expedia was $77 vs Hotwire $82. While a good rate, the standard rooms are incredibly small, with just a fullsize bed. Hotel is also listed now as 3.5*, although in the hotel lists here it shows Harbor Court as just 3* Complimentary Free Internet Amenities Business centerFitness centerPet friendlyRestaurant(s)Smoke-free rooms
  5. Price with the higher Hotwire taxes/fees was actually more than the AAA rate [or any other discount] if done direct. Hotel doesn't have very good reviews - so I wouldn't advise booking via Hotwire for this in the future. Complimentary Free breakfastFree InternetFree parking Amenities Business centerFitness centerPet friendlyPool(s)
  6. Under bid the $97 Priceline Express for what I believe is the same, and got it. Amenities listed: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Listed rate was $175, but Kimpton direct at a Last Minute Deal for $115, and since they have fewer taxes/fees, it wasn't a big savings - but still good, but you don't get a bed choice via Priceline.
  7. Underbid PRICELINE EXPRESS $55 for 4* Downtown, thought I'd get the V [The V was available via HOTWIRE for $56] but got the Saguaro. Apparently in need of updating more than the V, but still a good deal.
  8. Believed PRICELINE EXPRESS 3.5* was this hotel, so underbid that by $5
  9. At long last - a bargain at a hotel that had $234 as it's lowest price on Tripadvisor. Based on the 2000+ reviews, 95% approval and indoor pool, it appeared it would be the Hilton and it was: FULL AMENITIES: Indoor pool(s), Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Spa services, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower
  10. Was listed on PRICELINE EXPRESS for $60, tried bidding $50, rejected, then accepted at $55. Very clean room, accommodating and friendly front desk. Mount Vernon, VA Rated 9.0 out of 10 (or higher) Pets Allowed Free Parking Business Center Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  11. While rate was good [vs $99 on AAA/senior rate online], and it predicted this hotel when clicked on, the front desk person [who claimed to be the only person on duty during the day - with no manager available] said the booking came thru as a "king accessible" and that she couldn't change to a 2 bed room, even though they considered them the same rate type without approval from Expedia. Which is utter nonsense - as if Expedia owns the local hotel. Most of the time when called in advance hotels are happy to accommodate bed types if they have them available, as this hotel said they had.

  12. Started bid at $50, rejected, added 3*, rejected, $55, rejected. added Laurel, $58 accepted. Believe same hotel with PRICELINE EXPRESS is $63. Amenities: Pets Allowed Free Parking Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Apparently they allow pets by floor - so if you don't have one, make sure you request a no-pet floor.
  13. Complimentary Free breakfastFree InternetFree parking Amenities Business centerFitness center 80% recommended This is the King of Prussia property, not the nearby Valley Forge one. Hotel starting rennovation, but no rooms completed yet. Comfortable beds. Ask for quieter side away from Turnpike.
  14. Tried to bid 95 for 4*, $85 for adding 3.5*, then went to Express to get it. A new property - looks like a good deal, they posted these amenities in advance: Free Internet (in Room) Pool Non-Smoking Gym Restaurant Business Center It also showed 8/10 rating.
  15. Complimentary Free breakfastFree Internet Amenities Pet friendlySelf-service laundry 80% Recommended There are 3 Extended Stay Americas in the same area - University Drive is one of the "recently rennovated" ones [and not specifically listed as an option here] - make sure you select the one with the highest recommendation vs the same stars/price for the other that is only 20% recommended.
