    Good to see you around the board, been awhile. What is your expected budget? (per nite before taxes/fees)? 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.
  6. There is no 'ideal' time... sometimes hotels are offered well in advance of check-in, other times close to arrival date. We have been seeing more Disney hotels than in years past, but i think the issue that you may encounter is having one of their suite rooms appear.

  9. 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.
  10. 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.

  14. 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)?

    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.

    Las Vegas Bidding Help

    Searching using our BiddingHelper.com tool and looking in the EASY VIEW tab: 5* HOTWIRE Center Strip - Fountains for $117.00 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 ==> best guess for this one would be the Vdara Using the EASY VIEW tab you can also click the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button inside of the offer which also suggests that this is the Vdara.

  17. 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.

    Bidding Issue on Priceline

    I do see the 'error page' when clicking the sign-in link, but try this... On the bidding page if you click REGISTER (instead of sign-in) the form that loads has inputs for you to log-in (and a separate additional button to open a new account)... does this sign-in page allow you to complete the sign-in process? For Priceline Bidding please use the form we have set-up at BiddingForHotelRooms.com

    First questions / things to think about... How long is your cruise? How much is parking for this length of time at the cruise port? What time do you expect to arrive to Miami (the day prior to your cruise)? What aspects of a hotel do you value... star rating, higher end finishes/furnishings, value, free breakfast, etc. Do you already have specific things in mind that you would like to see/do this day before your cruise? Will you also explore on embarkation day or is the gameplan to head to the port as early as possible to be one of the first on the ship? 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.

    I think you need to decide what it is that you are looking for and what you want from this one nite stay. If you need a 'Park and Go' package you're not going to get that from PRICELINE / HOTWIRE. As well, you can't compare a 3 star Hampton Inn to the 5* hotels offered above. You can determine what parking will cost you at the pier (or at a nearby location that offers parking without a hotel stay), add that on to the cost of a PRICELINE / HOTWIRE hotel, and determine your best deal (and 'best' deal may not only be determined by price... a 5* hotel that costs $20 more when factoring in parking may be worth more than a 3* hotel that includes parking). Your other option would be to look at the airport area where you can likely also find cheaper 'long term parking' at the airport and leave the car there while on your cruise.

    I assume this is the Priceline Express offer you're referring to: 5* Downtown - Port of Miami (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $133/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> best guess for this one would be the Kimpton EPIC Hotel The 'issue' (that is not an issue) for the offer above is that PRICELINE only guarantees double occupancy, so you could receive a room with only one bed (not sure if your 2 year old sleeps in a bed or crib) and not a place to sleep for your child. However, this is not necessarily an issue for the offer above since this offer shows a room choice fo 2 beds and also indicates that '2 children under 18 years stay free of charge when using existing beds'. The problem if you bid for a hotel is that you don't know what type of room you will receive (or maybe you get a different hotel than the one above that has a different policy for children). Depending how flexible you are 'adapting' to whatever the room configuration may be, this may be a lesser problem with a 2 year old vs. when your child is much older (as well as hotels having less of an issue with a 2 year old than when the child is mid-teen and taller than many adults). A second option would be this offer from HOTWIRE: 5* HOTWIRE Downtown - Port of Miami for $126.00 (this price offered by searching using our BiddingHelper.com tool and then looking in the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab) Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> the Kimpton EPIC Hotel would be my best guess for this one as well. This offer also qualifies for the $10 off coupon you see at the top of the page or in our Hotwire Coupon page. HOTWIRE does allow you to search for up to quad occupancy, but for this offer if you include one child the price does go up to $143/nite. (although HOTWIRE considered 'children' to be 2+ years old, so if your child looks closer to 2 years old vs. closer to 3 years old, you could potentially book for 2adults/0children, call the hotel after your booking to let them know you have an almost 2 year old who needs a crib/bed, and see what type of room you have been assigned. If any issues you can then call Hotwire and let them know that you didn't include the child because s/he is under 2 years old, and ask them to either resolve with the hotel or cancel the reservation). With all of the above noted, if you still would like to try bidding on priceline let us know your maximum bid price and we can suggest a strategy for you to follow.

Let us know how you'd like to proceed, or how it goes if you take one of the offers above, and we'll take it from there.
  22. ??? Using the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW tab and clicking the SEE ALL AMENITIES button this is what i'm seeing for the 3 star hotel priced (now) at $136/nite: 3* HOTWIRE Pensacola Beach and Gulf Breeze for $136.00 Free Parking Free Internet Resort Indoor Pool Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach Gulf Front 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.
  23. Congratulations on your success! Glad we would help and glad to see it was the on-site Disney property you were hoping for. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Have a great trip and fun at the parks.
  24. For this hotel offer: 3.5* HOTWIRE Playground Pier - Boardwalk for $86.00 Free Internet Near Beach Indoor Pool Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> The Claridge - a Radisson Hotel would be my best guess You can also ID this property by using our BiddingHelper.com tool and in the EASY VIEW tab click the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button which will offer a best guess. The absence of a 'Free Parking' amenity does not necessarily mean that there will be a parking charge (as the hotel may have just not listed it as one of their amenities), but most hotels in this area along the boardwalk do indeed charge for parking.

  25. I'm not seeing any 3* hotel in this zone priced at $144/nite... are you searching for something other than the default 1room/2adults/0children? If you search using our BiddingHelper.com tool and in the EASY VIEW tab click the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button, does it give an indication of the underlying hotel?
