  1. Sorry for the delay... I can't say for certain, but in my research I believe the Marriott Marquis is the best guess for this one. If you do move forward with this HOTWIRE offer, note that there is another 4 star hotel in this zone for the same price (believed to be the Hilton) so make sure you don't confuse the two if you're hoping for the Marriott.

  2. Welcome to BetterBidding! I have to run out but will have a look at this as soon as i return, about 2-3 hours; wanted to let you know that your post was read and will be responded to in about that timeframe.
  3. Congratulations on your DEAL, very nicely done and nice to see your research (of checking package deals too) pay off big time! Hope your luck is just as good in Vegas! Thanks for sharing your win with the board and for using our PRICELINE link for your purchase.
  4. Unfortunately with many of NYC hotels now charging resort fees, along with already high city/hotel tax, many of the above are $300+ on an all-in basis (not to mention that a few are already gone, although PRICELINE now shows more options than when i looked yesterday). Closest i'm seeing your price point is on PRICELINE EXPRESS: 4 star Downtown - Wall Street for $208/nite with: Restaurant Fitness Center Pets Allowed Handicapped Rooms/Facilities No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess for this one would be the Doubletree Hilton New York Downtown. Priceline does not show a resort fee for this property, so you're all-in price after our Priceline Coupon comes in at $256/nite Have you found anything of acceptable quality closer to your $200 budget?
  5. Rates are a bit high for this nite, but first my thoughts as to your best location to call 'home'... I would think about how you want to get to the venue... SUBWAY: it looks like an easy walk from the following subway lines F, G, D, N, R, W. In Manhattan all of these lines originate in Midtown. However, if you decide to take: TAXI / UBER: I would stay Downtown Manhattan as it's a about a 4 mile trip which should put a NYC yellow taxi at about $15 (give or take depending upon traffic) and an Uber/Lyft a little more or less depending if surge pricing is in effect at the time you need to travel. If you decide upon midtown i'm seeing the following which seem to be good deals (in regards to regular rates, nothing i'm seeing is outright 'cheap' for this nite): Hyatt Grand Central - business hotel and not the best of reviews lately, but at $195/nite it's the only thing i'm seeing under $200/nite Royalton Hotel - boutique / trendy with decent reviews at $229/nite Crown Plaza HY36 Midtown - $232/nite has the best reviewed of the 3 and centrally located If Downtown is an option and you're trying to stay below the prices above, HOTWIRE has what looks to be: The Wall Street Inn - i'm not familiar with this property, to me it looks like a 'historic property' (ie- not modern and perhaps could use a refresh) but the reviews are good and may be worth a 'roll of the dice' given the other options and this one only at $152/nite if you're trying to stay within a budget Hampton Inn Manhattan / Downtown-Financial District includes Breakfast for $189/nite W New York Downtown would be a 'fancy' option at $249/nite I also did have a very quick look at Brooklyn and rates there are even higher. Not sure of your budget so we can start with the above and fine tune / seek further from there. Thoughts on any of the above?
  6. How long of a trip are you taking? If you're only going to be in Brooklyn for the one event, why not stay in Manhattan and commute to Brooklyn for the one nite? (rather than, i'm assuming, staying Brooklyn and commuting multiple times to Manhattan for the 'other' nites of your trip... or is this just a short 1-2 nite stay?)
  7. While we often help users target the hotel they want, sometimes the help comes down to helping avoid the hotel they don't want. Let us know how you make out with PRICELINE EXPRESS or how we can be of further assistance. Good luck!
  8. Welcome Back to BetterBidding! I'm doubtful the hotel you're seeing above is The Muse, for this 4.5 star HOTWIRE property: Boutique hotel Fitness center Internet access Pet friendly Restaurant(s) Self-service laundry Smoke-free rooms Accessibility Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel ... best guess would be the W Times Square If you're looking for The Muse it appears to be this one from PRICELINE EXPRESS: 4.5 star Times Square hotel for $238/nite (confirm your dates on the landing page): Fitness Center Pets Allowed Handicapped Rooms/Facilities No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin y Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  9. Not sure how you were able to link your PRICELINE purchase in order to check-in and choose a room via the Hilton App, but regardless, the preferences you set via Hilton are always only a request... did you ask to switch rooms or if something further from the elevator was available? (maybe nothing else was available that met all 3 of your criteria, so the check-in agent figured this had '2 out of 3' and best suited your needs/requests. The parking sounds crazy... that is more than we typically see in NYC, Chicago, etc. Hope the family enjoyed the trip and all that the Niagara Falls area has to offer.
  10. The exact opposite... you can pretty much exclude GWL as a potential option since this property does not offer Free Breakfast while the PriceBreaker hotel shows Free Breakfast as an amenity. As long as the hotel is 1 of the 3 shown PRICELINE is providing what they promised (remember, it's not 'you pick one of these three' it is 'we will pick one of these three'). In case this helps make it clearer, and for anyone else following along: When PRICELINE shows 3 potential hotels for a PriceBreaker offer, priceline already knows which hotel it is going to be, the other 2 hotels are only added in order to create the 'opacity' of which hotel you will ultimately receive. This 'opacity' is what enables them to offer the given hotel at a price less than almost anywhere else. Thank you for closing this thread with your decision... have a great time with your family exploring the Niagara Falls area.
  11. I'm very familiar with NYC... what is your maximum budget (per nite before taxes/fees)? Any specific purpose for this trip or just general tourist type activities? Have you been to NYC before? Let us know the above and i'll see if there is something better that can meet your needs.
  12. For this 3 star $135/nite HOTWIRE hotel: Free internet Business center Fitness center Restaurant(s) Self-service laundry Smoke-free rooms Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible for visually impaired ==> Hotel Edison New York City would be the best guess here 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.
  13. I looked again this morning I got and I think I’m seeing this property now… $132/nite? Free internet Business center Fitness center Indoor pool(s) Pet friendly Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Self-service laundry Smoke-free rooms If so, I agree best guess for this HOTWIRE hotel would be the Courtyad Minneapolis Downtown. Let us know what you decide to do and how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  14. I’m not seeing this offer when searching for your dates above with the standard 1room/2adults/0children… are you searching for something other than the default rooms/adults/children? What is the room rate per nite? Or are you on a desktop (as I only have mobile access at the moment) 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.
  15. Welcome to BetterBidding! Few question/comments to clarify some of the above: What is your expected/maximum budget? (in USD) Since Great Wolf Lodge does not offer Free Breakfast, and the PriceBreaker hotel shows a Free Breakfast amenity, the PriceBreaker hotel is likely some other 3.5 star hotel in the zone and not the Great Wolf Lodge that you are looking for. Since you're trying to keep costs as low as possible, have you considered Sept 1-3, as that shows to be a little cheaper vs. including the Saturday nite. Also, i don't know the specific occupancy/children rules at GWL, or how they control access to the water park area, but this is a situation where you need to be careful booking an 'opaque' hotel with PRICELINE as they only guarantee double occupancy. While the risk of booking double occupancy at a 'standard' hotel and showing up at a hotel with a young child is somewhat low, it increases substantially at a property such as this (which offers a water park). I have not stayed at any Great Wolf Lodge properties but i have been to Kalahari (similar concept in the Poconos) and, iirc, access to the water park was restricted by wrist bands. If you book a room for double occupancy what if that only entitles you to two wrist bands to access the water park and they want an additional fee for the 3rd wrist band for your child? In this situation i think HOTWIRE would be a better option since their service allows you to search for up to quad occupancy, so there shouldn't be any additional occupancy charges if you include 2adults/1child in your search. This may ultimately be a moot point since the PriceBreaker hotel is not likely the hotel you're looking for. I am seeing what looks to be GWL on HOTWIRE: Sept 1-3 for $325 (USD before taxes/fees... and before our Hotwire Coupon) All terms of all of our Priceline Coupons are set by priceline. If you still want to use Priceline (even with the occupancy caveats above) you may be able to if you change your location to US and currency to USD. Do you encounter the same when trying our Hotwire Coupon? (i'm not sure if their terms are also confined to US or not) There is currently a known PriceBreaker issue where trying to purchase the hotel gives a 'You Just Missed It' message, and this happens both thru our site and on the PRICELINE site, but I haven't see the Captach issue in a very long time, it might help if, as per above, you change your location to US and currency to USD. OK, a fair amount for you to digest... let us know your thoughts / questions and how you'd like to proceed and we'll take it from there.

  16. To add to the above, if this hotel is of interest, i'm also seeing THIS HOTEL (confirm your dates on the landing page) on Priceline : 3 Stars Downtown Dallas Free Breakfast Free Internet Fitness Center Pets Allowed Handicapped Rooms/Facilities No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> i believe this one would also be the SpringHill Suites Downtown/West End... but would be a little cheaper when using our current Priceline Coupon
  17. Hi I believe this is the same HOTWIRE hotel you posted above but i'm seeing it at $104/nite: Free breakfast Free internet Business center Fitness center Pool(s) Self-service laundry Smoke-free rooms Suite ==> Springhill Suites by Marriott Dallas West End would be my best guess for this one (to confirm it's the same property you're seeing does it also show a 4.1/5.0 'Very Good' rating?)

I'm seeing this 4.5* HOTWIRE hotel in the Millennium Park zone which i believe is the one you're referring to above, but it's priced at $154: Boutique hotel Business center Fitness center Internet access Pet friendly Self-service laundry Smoke-free rooms Accessibility Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible for visually impaired ==> Fairmont Chicago at Millennium Park is our best guess for this one If you want to confirm this is the same hotel you're referencing you can repeat your search at BiddingHelper.com and look in the 'Hotwire Research' tab... each hotel in the search results should be identified right there so it's easy to make sure you're choosing the 'right' hotel.
