  1. Followed your advice and simply tried again later (using Bidding Helper)... Success! This search repaid a little extra time for me. I think the Omni Riverfront is significantly better than the similarly-priced alternatives, and quite a bit cheaper than anything as good I could have bought. For the final record, the amenities shown on my purchase: Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Internet access Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower Thanks again, guys!
  2. Hm, I tried to book this one (that looks like the Omni Riverfront), but when I hit "Confirm Payment" I get "We couldn't process your request". Does that mean HOTWIRE ran out of inventory? I see a FQ/Mississippi 4* for $143 too. The amenities are: Pet friendly, Casino, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower So the Casino means it pretty much has to be Harrahs. It costs more but I think I might pay it if I really can't get the $116 likely-Omni-Waterfront.
  3. Hi, I'll be in New Orleans May 13-16. I'd take any of these areas: French Q/Miss., French Q/Bourb., Warehouse, Superdome. Searching for a 4*, two people, there's a large bunch of possibilities and I don't know what to choose. I guess I'd like to grab one of the ones that's around $100. Does anyone spot any particularly good value there? FQ/Bourbon $99 Free Internet, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower FQ/Miss. $116 Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower Downtown Superdome $101 Free Internet, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby Warehouse $95 Free Internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Internet access, Golf nearby, In-room accessibility, Roll-in shower I also see three in the Central Business District, which I think has been carved out of the Warehouse, Superdome, and maybe FQ/Miss regions. Could one of those be the Intercontinental or the Omni? Thanks for this; I'm usually more focused in my questions, but the area is so small and the inventory is so large I can't narrow it down.
  4. The Priceline Express deal that Thereuare linked to was indeed the Blackstone Renaissance. (So I guess this thread should be moved to the Priceline side.) Booked it through that link, of course. PRICELINE EXPRESS named the zone "Loop-Grant Park" (not "-Millennium Park"). The listed amenities were: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Handicap Accessible Thanks for the advice!
  5. Great. Yeah, the Blackstone seems like the best deal. No reason to go elsewhere to save four dollars. I'll check with my son, then I'll book something and close the thread.
  6. Both of those suggestions (the likely Blackstone and the Hilton booked transparent) sound like good options to me. I hadn't tried the MAPS and HOTELS.com tool before, either, so that's useful. Thanks! I'll wait to see what Aaron thinks and then book something in the next 24 hours.
  7. My 21-year old son is going to a concert at the Adler on the evening of Feb. 11th and I'd like to book him a room for that night. First question: is the Loop the right area to look in? I figure there should be better deals there than in the livelier sections and he won't care much about other nightlife since the concert will go late. (On the other hand he wouldn't mind walking a little to Millennium Park, etc.) Second: do you see any particularly good deals? I was thinking 4*, but there's a 4.5* for $93 listed for that night in the Loop. I don't see any 4.5* hotels in the Loop/Theater hotel listings. When I click your "Full Amenities" button here's the list I get: Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Internet access, Spa services Basically just looking for the best value approximately 4* and fairly close to the Adler that night. Oh -- and a 21-year old will have no trouble, right? Thanks, guys!
  8. Yep, the $100 HOTWIRE was indeed the Sofitel. Even though you weren't sure, it seemed smart to pick that one, since it was cheaper and you thought it was more likely to be the one I preferred. Thanks! I think I got a great deal. Booked through your site's HOTWIRE link, of course.
  9. Hi Guys, Looking at a couple of 4.5* hotels in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, for the nights of Feb 19 and 20. For $100, Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Children's activities, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower. For $110, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower I figure one is the Palomar and the other *probably* the Sofitel. Is the one with Children's Activities the Palomar? (I'd take either of those, but I would *slightly* prefer the Sofitel -- I guess I'd prefer it enough to pay the extra $10.) Thanks!
  10. For some reason the price dropped to $145 when I clicked 'buy'; it was listed at $146 before I clicked. FULL AMENITIES: Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Spa services, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower This was the hotel I wanted, so even though you guys only had a guess, since it matched my guess I decided to go for it. Pretty nice price for a 5*, and it's very well reviewed and is in a great neighborhood. (Of course, I did the search and the purchase with your HOTWIRE links.)
  11. 5* Manchester City Centre Northeast $146 FULL AMENITIES: Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Spa services, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower I know it's a long shot, but does anyone happen to have an educated guess at this one?
  12. Just FYI: several of the Copley/Back Bay hotels are a lot closer to Fenway Park than the EnVision is. The Sheraton and Hilton are about 15 minutes, the Westin Copley Pl. and the Marriott are about 20 minutes walking. The EnVision is quite a lot further and its neighborhood is probably not what you're looking for. You're right that the Commonwealth would be perfect but during baseball season they don't have a lot of unsold inventory! Good luck.
  13. Hi, I'm kind of a local. Brookline would be a very easy T ride into downtown and you could even walk to some parts if the weather holds up, but I think it's going to be very expensive. Natick is quite a bit further, and you'd have to take the commuter rail (which is like Chicago's Metra). I would definitely not recommend staying in Worcester. That would be a much longer trip: about two hours including the commuter train and then a T ride. If you're willing to stay over an hour away, then I would seriously consider staying in Providence, Rhode Island instead -- that's a bit over an hour by train, and it's a nicer city. (Well, I suppose it's a matter of taste, but I'm pretty sure most people would say so.) You could also try Peabody and Danvers. I think you're running into the figure skating event, by the way, that's why prices are so astronomical.
  14. I was recently in the same situation. The Langham is in the Downtown-River-North region, and its amenities are almost the ones you list, but I believe your listing is the Trump. The Smoke-free Rooms amenity seems to distinguish them. I got the Trump. It was fine -- I mean, it was very nice, a genuine 5* hotel -- but I wanted the Langham.
