    Bidding Issue on Priceline

    This is how I did the bidding while the problem is still on going. Bid as usual without sign-in, go to your mytrip page on separate tab/window and check if the bid was successful. If not , repeat as usual and recheck mytrip information. Make sure to refresh the page to make sure that all bids are noted. If the bid was accepted, it will show on the mytrip. Hope this helps
  3. Amenities: Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby Thank you again BB. LA area rates seem to be high the weekend of May 3 but we were able to find this deal using your Quick Quote feature!

    Bidding Issue on Priceline

    I gave up and booked a couple of stays using HOTWIRE. If Priceline can't be bothered to fix an obvious problem, I'll take my business elsewhere.
  5. My question is; historically how far from ETA is the best time to try to nab a Disney property? The link was to a 70% off bonnet Creek hotel, and I wonder if savings will dwindle as the date approaches. I'm wondering as well if it is a pipe dream to expect to even get a Disney property for that time frame. Didn't mean to be pushy, safe travels.
  6. I'm traveling this holiday weekend so there may be a delay in our usual speedy responses, and we are trying to first respond to stays that are imminent (so stays that are 6+ months away are likely to have a longer delay). HOTWIRE links to specific hotel offers expire about 30 minutes after the search, so if you click the link above you will see that it does not show any hotel information, and why we post the full details (star rating, zone, dates, amenities, room rate per nite, etc) of the hotel offer rather than just a link to it. What does the hotel at the link above show... is it a hotel that is one week from arrival OR is it a hotel the actual dates you need (or something else)? What specifically are you asking about the property offered above... would this same property be offered, will the prices be similar, etc? 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. Welcome to BetterBidding! I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature). If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 4 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates: 4* HOTWIRE Universal Orlando Resort for $360.16 Free Internet Resort Pet Friendly Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Childrens Activities Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Loews Royal Pacific Resort would be my best guess for this one 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. Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.

    Virginia Beach oceanfront - 2.5* $105/night Some significant amenities Bar Restaurant Pets allowed Outdoor pool Free breakfast I'm thinking either the Sheraton or the Wyndham, but it may be one off brand. I want to take my dog, so nailing it down is important to confirm that pets are allowed. Thanks. Hint: Your 2.5-Star Express Deal will be one of these hotels! The Oceanfront Inn Ocean Suites Comfort Inn & Suites Oceanfront (P.S. None of these hotels are pet friendly based on their websites)
  14. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and are looking forward to your trip. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us confirm this property for the Santa Fe Priceline Express Hotel List.

    Bidding Issue on Priceline

    FWIW, NYOP is working in Priceline app (Android). Browser NYOP is still out of service
  16. Thanks for the response thereuare. I should have been more clear. I feel like I could find great deals for that time frame throughout the year, but what I'm really trying to do is score a disney resort, specifically a value family suite, because I feel the discounted room will fall more into my budget of $200-$250, as those rooms are $330 right now. So I guess if you know historically, how far out is the best time for disney resorts? Of course I do know by the very nature of hotwire it's a crapshoot so we will be happy regardless. I have a family of 6, 4 children 2 small children so really any 4 person room will suffice, as the little ones have a portable bunk bed. https://www.hotwire.com/hotels/details/MzAwMDg0NzM3NjU6MzAwMDg1MzQzNjg4OQ-- This is an example of one I just found. I know it's not a disney but I wonder if I should expect these even up to 1 week out? Thanks again
  17. Welcome to BetterBidding! The best time to book would be whenever you see a good deal at a property that works well and fits your needs; especially since you're looking for something specific. How many adults/children do you need accommodations for? What is your expected budget (per nite before fees/taxes)? 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. Let us know the information above and we'll take it from there.

    So let's take a different approach... why not the guessed Kimpton Epic hotel? What is missing from this property that would make this an ideal choice? I've stayed at this Hyatt many years ago and while it was a nice hotel, we enjoyed our stay (pre-cruise as well), and it served our needs well... but the pool area is not really anything special.

  20. Hello World Nov 30th - Dec 8th or possibly the following week for a value resort family suite Disney World onsite? For instance Lion king family suite, etc. I will be traveling regardless during that time but one the next week too. I am okay with not scoring a disney resort, but it will be an added bonus. If I dont score a disney resort, I will reserve it from here. Anyone have a good idea of my chances for that time frame? Its the week after thanksgiving so should be slower. Is T-6 out the best time to look? Thanks!

  22. 5-star Boutique Hotel in Center Strip - Fountains area of Las Vegas Check in 8/23-8/25 $117 per night Amenities: Boutique hotel Business center Fitness center Internet access Pet friendly Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Smoke-free rooms Suite Thank you!
  23. For each of the above: 5* HOTWIRE Center Strip - Fountains for $82.00 Free Parking Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Casino Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> The Cosmopolitan would be my best guess for this one 5* HOTWIRE Center Strip - Fountains for $107.00 Pet Friendly Suite Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Kitchenette Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> agree with the Vdara 5* HOTWIRE Center Strip - Fountains for $108.00 Resort Pet Friendly Casino Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Bellagio is my best guess here As far as the resort fees, sometimes they are listed as just the resort fee amount, sometimes the resort fee including taxes, and sometimes they are not updated as quickly as the resort fee at the hotel changes, so the amount shown by HOTWIRE has typically always been a little different then the actual amount charged by the hotel.

    Disney Hotel 5/24-5/27

    Happy to help! If you are okay with the Disney Springs area, I'd be happy to research offers in that area, as well. I'm seeing on HOTWIRE, for example (5/24-27) 4* HOTWIRE Disney Springs for $148.00 Free Internet Resort Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Spa Childrens Activities Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Best guess would be the Hyatt Grand Cypress 3.5* HOTWIRE Disney Springs for $118.00 Suite Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Doubletree Suites Orlando Disney Springs There is a definite risk that rates go higher closer to the stay given the time period, but if you want to wait, you can use our ratedrop.com free service to monitor rates and also, you can reply to this post and we'd be happy to research and see if inventory/pricing at Disney properties has changed between now and the stay. Thank you for keeping us updated and let us know if you have any additional questions.

    I think it really becomes what you want from the hotel experience and how much you are going to use the amenities. Additionally, how far do you want to go from the port? I still think that this listing on PRICELINE EXPRESS is a great option (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the link below.) 5* Downtown - Port of Miami (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $133 Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool >>>Best guess would be the Kimpton Epic The Kimpton gets fantastic reviews (4.5/5 on tripadvisor) and has a pool. At the 4* level, I'm seeing on HOTWIRE: 4* HOTWIRE Downtown - Port of Miami for $96.00 Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> Best guess would be the Hyatt If you want to consider other areas, how far are you interested in staying away from the port?
