  1. Since HOTWIRE charges more fees than PRICELINE, it helped to use the $25 off coupon: Amenities Airport shuttleBusiness centerFitness centerGolf nearbyInternet accessPet friendlyPool(s)Restaurant(s)Smoke-free rooms
  2. Was listed in PE at $93 with 7 out of 10 rating: Pets Allowed Free Parking Restaurant Airport Shuttle Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Bid $88 at Priceline, rejected, came back saying I could rebid for $102 [why would I when PE was at 93??] - rebid at $90 by adding Tempe North [knowing all their 3.5* were a lot more], and got it.
  3. Was on PE for $88, underbid to $83 and got it. Previously got the Sheraton with the same amenities - but it should be noted their Fitness center is under construction until the end of March [?] - so they just have something temporary set up on the 2nd floor. Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  4. From research here/TripAdvisor it seemed highly likely to be the Wyndham. It's a great deal, but I partly took it because it says it had Airport Shuttle, as it's a long ways from the airport. Turns out the shuttle costs $75/person each way! And clearly HOTWIRE doesn't show any possibility of extra cost for that until AFTER you get the confirmation back, and then only when you click on the amenity it says "an additional charge may apply." HIGHLY DECEPTIVE! What - are the other amenities like the beach, fitness center, pool, and smoke-free rooms also "an additional charge"?? Also - the next day, the price went down another $3 - which shows that sometimes waiting improves the price, not making it worse. Here were the amenities listed on the initial display: Complimentary Free Internet Amenities Airport shuttleBeachfront hotelFitness centerOceanfront hotelPool(s)ResortRestaurant(s)Smoke-free rooms Here's what came back with the confirmation: Resort Free Internet Beachfront hotel Oceanfront hotel Airport shuttle Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Golf nearby Tennis nearby Spa services Children's activities
  5. Based on PRICELINE EXPRESS, it seemed highly likely I'd get the Sheraton - which posted at PE at $84 [then when you click it said $85]. Tried $79 - $5 less than the PE $84, which usually works, but refused - so added other non-4* areas and rebid to $81 and got it. It should be noted that HOTWIRE appeared to have the same for $85, however their fees are higher so it made more sense to use PRICELINE. Pets Allowed Business Center Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  6. It said "New to Hotwire" but then once you click it said the last person got the Kona Kai - so that plus the amenities along with the specific resort fee of $18 made it a sure thing, and a good rate for the time. It had reviews as 4.5 and 90% Free Internet Resort Pet friendly Near beach Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Golf 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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)
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Believed PRICELINE EXPRESS 3.5* was this hotel, so underbid that by $5
  15. 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
