  1. Thanks -- used alternative lodging option (a free one -- my sister).
  2. For 6/23-25: 3 1/2 * $94/night Free internet, Boutique hotelBusiness centerFitness centerIndoor pool(s)Pool(s)Restaurant(s)Self-service laundry. The Madison being called "boutique"? 4* Resort, $87/night Free parking, Business centerFitness centerIndoor pool(s)Internet accessPet friendlyPool(s)ResortRestaurant(s). Am guessing that this is the Westminster being called a resort, but not sure. That would be stretching "resort," IMO
  3. Amenities: Free Parking, Free Breakfast, Free Internet, pet friendly, fitness center, pool(s), business center, Internet access.
  4. Ugh. This property (originally a Holiday Inn, stylistically looks like late 70s/early 80s vintage) is undoubtedly the worst 3 1/2 star property since I started using PRICELINE and HOTWIRE. Old, dirty public areas, mold on walls, leaking ceilings, and (per other folks) a gross pool and an awful restaurant. No bed bugs; good wifi and TV -- and that's about the end of the positives. I knew this property was possible when bidding, so I can't gripe -- but I can say you should avoid bidding in this zone if possible to avoid this place. (Note: I got this property bidding at 2 1/2 stars. Again, I knew it was possible going in, knowing the rule that you can always get a property with a higher star rating than your bid.)
  5. Princeton South or Trenton North would fit the zone better, IMO, but it's Priceline's sandbox and they get to name it. (In fact, the hotel name is misleading as well -- the hotel is across the street from the Trenton airport. This is the same property previously known, and listed in your hotel list, as the Courtyard By Marriott Ewing Hopewell, which was a more accurate name.) That said, happy with the deal -- I knew that this hotel was a distinct possibility going in.
  6. Thanks much.. I am going to try another option, as I am not an ESA fan.
  7. Help identify? Princeton North - Plainsboro 2 1/2 star. $53. 4/29 thru 5/1. Pet friendly, Suite, free parking, free internet, free breakfast, kitchenette.
  8. Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Internet access.
  9. After gradually increasing bidding and adding zones (this was a good one for that -- there were 6 zones that were fully acceptable at 2.5 stars). Used your PRICELINE link as always.
  10. Please note that this zone is now Fort Lee-Edgewater; Hackensack is in Hackensack - Paramus - Ridgefield Park zone. Amenities: Free parking, indoor pool, pool, business center, accessible path, accessible bathroom, free internet, fitness center, restaurant, internet access, in-room accessibility, accessible parking. Used your HOTWIRE link and got an extra $15 off.
  11. Same hotel (I'm 99% sure) would have been $80 as a PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal. Direct rate via IHG $126. However, the review situation is REALLY odd. PL shows as an 8+, but there are an unusual number of scathing reviews on TripAdvisor and Google, and HIE locations don't usually get trashed in reviews. And looking at Google Maps, it seems this is a conversion from a rather pitiful looking property called the Gold Coast Inn. So there are some concerns here.
  12. Wasn't able to get the pizza -- the work obligation canceled so I ended up having dinner with friends at their place. Many thanks, though. Maybe next time.
  13. First time I ever saw a listing like this: "Secaucus-Meadowlands area new to hotwire hotel" -- that is how it was listed on the Hotwire search page. $152.22 for 2 nights with fees. Amenities (and this was all of them): Free parking, free breakfast, fitness center, business center, wheelchair accessible. Used your HOTWIRE link as always.
  14. A bit odd that Staten Island is in New Jersey, but hey. :) (Apparently SI is its own zone in Priceline; tried there first but all bids failed.) Amenities: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Fitness center, Business center, Internet access (the last being redundantly redundant).
  15. Zone name (Mashantucket) does not match those in BB hotel list; assume might replace North Stonington in Mystic - New London? Free parking, free internet, casino, indoor pool, fitness, pool, business, internet, spa, accessible path, in-room accessibility, accessible bathroom, accessible parking.
