  1. Today
  2. I would set an alert at RateDrop for both the Omni and the Delta (or any other hotels that may be acceptable)... our systems will monitor rates at each of those hotels for your specific dates and should they drop in price at all you'll get an email notifying you of the price change. For now i would set the alerts at $318 and $408 respectively so that you're aware of any drop in price. I would also look for something nearby that is fully refundable. Using our other site, RefundableRates.com you can search within 1 mile of '555 E Canal St, Richmond, VA 23219' (the address of the Delta, but of course you can use any address you choose) in order to compare rates on a refundable basis (yes, rates will likely be a little higher than you can find elsewhere, but that is because of the refundable aspect... but the idea is really to just use this as a placeholder to make sure that rates don't only go higher from here and that you've at least locked in something at this point in time). Lastly, i'm not sure how big of an event the marathon is (my wife has run 3 so i've been a spectator at a few) but i assume it will be too crowded/hectic to take a taxi/uber/lyft to a hotel that is not exactly in the immediate vicinity, yet not as far as the airport... might be a good compromise between price and convenience. Keep us updated on your progress and let us know how we can be further help along the way... good luck with your training.

  5. It's all location - some friends and I are running the Richmond marathon/half marathon on November 16, so our first priority is proximity to the finish line/area on Brown's Island. Either the Omni or Delta Hotels Marriott are ideal for that reason (walkable to/from the start/finish), and also have a noon checkout which in prior years we've been able to extend to 1 (so plenty of time post-race to walk back and shower before driving home). They are $319 or $409, respectively, at "retail" rates so we were just hoping to possibly find them a little cheaper. If we can't, then it's just a question of whether we want to splurge for one of those two, or stay out by the airport somewhere cheap and drive downtown in the morning (which we've also done in prior years). The Graduate is over a mile from the finish line and has an 11am checkout, so while it's a good deal, given the longer walk and earlier check-out, it's just not feasible - we would just stay by the airport for like $100 less.

  19. Yesterday
  20. I'm not sure if you have a special casino rate (or some other membership-only rate), but from the Aria website for your dates i'm seeing $710 all-in vs. HOTWIRE's $590 all-in (both including taxes, fees, resort fees, etc).
  21. You're going to need more flexibility as $180 all-in just insn't realistic at current prices... so something is going to have to 'give' in regards to star rating, location, or budget. In about 5 minutes i can teach you to be an expert searcher and you'll see the battle (ie- prices) that you're up against... Using our BiddingHelper.com tool enter your search parameters (being sure to include 2adults/1child) and in the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab: 1) on the left side scroll to the star ratings and select only 4* and higher (if you're on a desktop just hover over the '4 stars' and you'll see a link 'and higher' which will select everything 4* and higher and UNselect anything less than 4 stars) 2) scroll to the top of the search results where it says: Sort by Zone | Star rating | Price --> click PRICE which will now sort all of the 4* and higher rated hotels by price 3) now start at the top of the listings and scroll until you start to see zones that are within Manhattan ... and give yourself a pat on the back, you're now an expert searcher The least expensive hotel within Manhattan would be this one: 4* HOTWIRE Madison Square Garden for $191.00 Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible While i do have a guess for the hotel above, that's not the point at the moment, the point is that by the time you add in taxes, fees, and the resort fee that this hotel charges (which is doing it's job of making the hotel look artificially cheaper than it really is) you're looking at nearly $290/nite. You can repeat the steps above to look at different date combinations and you may find a slight improvement, but you're not going to find anything that brings you down to the $180 all-in level... which brings us back to something is going to have to 'give'; so in regards to budget, location, star rating, quality... which are you more firm on and which do you have more flexibility? Of course if you find some date/price combination that we missed (or didn't appear earlier) we'd be happy to have a look and research/identify the hotel(s), but at the moment it looks like you're going to need to compromise in one or more aspects of your original criteria.

  26. He is 16 so does qualify as a child still. We could split our across 2 hotels if that might help stretch our budget. Plus we would definitely stay in other areas in Manhattan. My husband needs to go to meetings on the afternoon of the 19th and on the 20th September on 6th Avenue right across from the Warwick hotel. So ideally we would be near that location on the 19th and 20th. For the 21st and 22nd we would be much more flexible with location.
