  1. 4* New York City (Grand Central) The Iroquois

    Congrats on your success. Glad you were able to get in on this deal as I can only guess it was a price mistake, as $53 for a 4* isn't seen even in the slowest time of year. Beyond that, the lowest price on the hotel website for these dates is $332 - $53 is certainly a ridiculous discount off full price. Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  2. I'd agree that these are prices you should jump on ASAP as these are highly, highly unusual rates. You don't see these kind of rates even at the absolute slowest point of year. My guess is that these rates will not last or they are a mistake and will be corrected sooner than later. Either way, I'd take advantage. Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.
  3. Congrats on your success. Excellent win for this property and hope you are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  4. 5* New York City (Upper East Side) The Mark

    Insane deal for this property! Hope you are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for letting us know about this new HOTWIRE property so that we can update the site's Hotwire Hotel List. If you look under the trip information in your HOTWIRE account, do you see any additional amenities beyond the ones noted above? Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. While not the $121, this is still an insanely good deal. There have been a couple of instances this afternoon of highly unusual prices turning up in searches and this is another one. I'm seeing a regular rate on the hotel's website of $628 a night for these dates.... Enjoy your stay.
  5. Stunning deal, with the lowest price on the hotel's website for these dates at $442. Glad you acted quickly and were able to take advantage of a very unusually good deal. Enjoy your stay.
  6. Welcome to Betterbidding. If you go to BiddingHelper.com, then search for your dates, then click "Hotwire Easy View", then click "Full Amenities", you will see the complete list of amenities associated with a listing. There are two listings where the price seems extraordinarily low for the season: prices in US$, you may see a slightly different rate. $55 4* Grand Central Boutique, Restaurant, Fitness, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business -- This is a possible match for Iroquois, which has been seen with this amenity set previously. This is a "has to be a mistake"-level low price, as $55 for a 4* isn't seen in the middle of January, much less May. $122 5* Central Park South Restaurant, Fitness, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business -- This is a possible match for 1 Central Park. Again, $122 is extremely unusual for a 5* in NYC in general - especially in a busy season. I'm also seeing a 5* in the Upper East Side zone for $106 w/Free Internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, 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 -- but this listing has not yet been ID'd/reported to the board. If either of these are of interest, I'd take them ASAP. Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.
  7. Congrats on your success. Excellent win for this property and hope you are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for letting us know about this new PRICELINE EXPRESS listing so that we can update the site's Priceline Hotel List. Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  8. I do like Wrigley from the standpoint of the historic nature of the field and the area - it's a great area with a lot of restaurants. In other words, if you get there early (which I'd recommend), it's a nice area and there are things to do. The Red Line's really the only way to get there and as a result, closer to the game it does get crowded so I'd try to head up there a bit early. I do like the Wendella boat tours, but the Chicago Architecture Foundation tour (they leave from the opposite sides of the Michigan Ave bridge) is another perfectly fine option. There are also water taxis, which don't provide a guided tour, but are way cheaper. You can take the water taxi to Chinatown. Navy Pier is in the process of being renovated and it's getting a little better but it's still very much a tourist trap. Michigan Ave is popular but I generally have the philosophy that a lot of it can be found elsewhere for cheaper. There are resale shops throughout the neighborhoods that are a treasure hunt where you can find things cheaper, including the high-end Luxury Garage Sale (http://www.yelp.com/biz/luxury-garage-sale-chicago) in Old Town. I'd rather suggest the River North area for restaurants or browsing through the Lincoln Park area. If one was in the mood for a very, very long walk, there's actually a lengthy walk that goes from the North side through Lincoln Park, past the Zoo and Old Town and all the way back to Michigan Ave. The Old Town area is also right near Lincoln Park/LP Zoo and includes famed theater Second City, as well as stops like the Spice House (http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-spice-house-chicago, even if you don't get anything, it's a feast for the senses just walking in.) LP Zoo is also free and well worth a look. If you do decide to go to a museum, Art Institute is pretty remarkable, both in terms of their collection and the fact that the place is architecturally gorgeous. Let me know if you have any questions at all.

  13. 3* Vancouver (North) The Lonsdale Quay Hotel

    Congrats on your success. Great deal for this property and glad you are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  14. Congrats on your success. Very nice win for this property and glad you are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay. Also: "My only concern with guessing it's the Viceroy is that it shows a 65% approval on Hotwire customer reviews. On the Hotwire website it shows 85% customer reviews. Does this mean it may not be the Viceroy? Thanks so much looking to book it today!" If you are looking on the regular rate side of the service, that is powered by Expedia. Different customers/review %. There is nothing to check the current HOTWIRE review % against, unfortunately.
  15. Congrats on your success. Great win for this property and I think you made an excellent choice - this is certainly a centrally located hotel. Wildberry (http://www.yelp.com/biz/wildberry-pancakes-and-cafe-chicago-2) is a breakfast option a couple blocks away, Wow Bao (http://wowbao.com/) is nearby and kinda fun. There's also a Giordanos for pizza right by the hotel at 130 E Randolph. Let me know if you need recommendations (let me know likes/dislikes) and if you have any city questions. Thank you for sharing your win and for usnig the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
