  1. Good price for the property/location. Once clicked thru, it indicated last person got this property so confidence was high. Total $93.11 including "resort fee" Free breakfast, Free Internet, Smoke-free rooms, Business center, Internet access
  2. Saw PE had it for $54, bid $50 and got it: Free Parking Business Center Airport Shuttle Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  3. PRICELINE EXPRESS had it for $64, so I bid $59 and got it. Amenities: Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  4. PRICELINE EXPRESS listed it as $189, bid $181 and accepted at Priceline. Showed 8 out of 10 rating. Will add amenities later. Lowest price listed at other sites $431
  5. Ammenities: Free parking, Free Internet, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Spa services 9.5 rating out of 10. Base rate was $113, king guarantee took it to 133, when in fact the hotel charges the same for 2 queens as 1 king. Hotel direct was $179, but with lower fees of course. If the hotel hadn't been predicted, and almost guaranteed by spa services & tripadvisor reviews, it wouldn't have been much of a deal as there are other offers direct.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. Was on PRICELINE EXPRESS 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.

  9. 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
  10. 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.

  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
