  1. Welcome to BetterBidding! It's never easy to know with any high degree of certainty if it's better to book now or if rates will come down closer to check-in date. The push that would imply higher rates is that this is peak season in NYC... the pull that might suggest lower rates is that travel is currently slowing on account of coronavirus. I think you can find the best of both worlds with this offer from Hotwire: 4.5* HOTWIRE Rockefeller Center for $175 Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility ==> Warwick New York This is a well reviewed hotel with a location just north of Times Square. This makes it very easy to walk to Times Square without having the crowds of Times Square itself right outside your hotel door each time you leave/enter the building. As well, there are multiple subway stations and lines within a few block walk in any direction that can easily take you just about anywhere in the city you want to go. We currently have a Hotwire Coupon that takes 7% off which brings this to $245/nite on an all-in basis, just $5 over your target budget. This is a 'clear winner' in my option vs. the other offers (from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE)... there are other hotels that are acceptable that can save you $20/nite, but relatively speaking in think the Warwick is worth the extra $20 as it should give you everything you're seeking. Does this one work for your needs?

Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  2. Unfortunately nobody can say if rates will go down, move higher, or the offer disappears entirely over the next few months. Hotel pricing uses a forecasting model so it's likely that current pricing is already factoring in some level of weakness. So the question is whether fear is at it's peak right now and things will not be as bad as hoteliers think (and rates will move higher) or will travel slow to a trickle and things will get worse (and rates move lower). If anyone really knew if things are at their worst right now and will improve vs. if things will deteriorate further from here, there would be better ways to profit from it than just the savings on this hotel room ... but unfortunately nobody knows what to expect in the nearterm (and thus the wild swings of the stock market last week). Wish i had a more concrete answer for you, but at the moment nobody can say with a high degree of certainty.
  3. You're welcome... hopefully you can make it work as the reviews look AWESOME! Here is a link for the same hotel but for 2 rooms (if you need links for more than 2 rooms let me know, otherwise if each person booking on their own can all use the same link above) Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  4. Congratulations on your success! Glad we were able to assist and that you received the hotel you were hoping for. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  5. 5* Playa Mujeres (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $352/nite with: Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Free Internet I agree with this guess.

  6. Do note that this latest one does not include a Shuttle (which you previously listed as a want/need): 3.5* HOTWIRE Central Harrisburg for $83.31 Free internet Indoor pool(s) Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Golf nearby ==> Crowne Plaza Hotel Harrisburg - Hershey Some others that seem to fit your budget and include a Shuttle: 3.5* Harrisburg (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $68/nite with: Free Parking Pets Allowed Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Sheraton Hotel Harrisburg Hershey (i know this was the original hotel you asked about but this one is a few dollars less so i listed just in case budget was a major factor in your decision) 3.5* Harrisburg West (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $53/nite with: Free Parking Pets Allowed Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Radisson Hotel Harrisburg 3* Harrisburg (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $62/nite with: Free Parking Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Holiday Inn Middletown - Harrisburg Area All of the above were researched with the new feature of our BiddingHelper tool: 1) search at BiddingHelper.com 2) click the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW or PRICELINE EXPRESS tab 3) hover your mouse/click the 'FIND MATCH from HOTEL LIST' button ==> most hotels should be identified with our best guess 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. You're welcome. Let us know how else we can help or how you decide to proceed and we'll take it from there.
  8. So searching for MAY 15-17 is going to be a bit more troublesome due to your weekend dates. Searching for 1room/4adults on HOTWIRE the least expensive 4 star hotel is Tropicana at $153/nite (before taxes/fees) so you can figure that is going to be closer to $200 all-in. So something is going to have to 'give'... either star rating, location, or budget. Dropping to 3*/3.5* doesn't really help much as most hotels on the strip are 4 star or higher (i did have a look and dropping star rating doesn't really help you much). Usually there is some 'outlier' that offers a pretty good deal and just not seeing it for these dates, so i dug a little deeper and i see that there is a 37K person convention that starts on May 17... most attendees will arrive (at least) the nite before and that is probably contributing to the high rates we're seeing for your dates. I assume you're locked into these nites, and if it's possible to reschedule would any Sun-Thur nites be an option, as will likely save you at least half. 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. PS- and i apoligize again if i got your hopes up on the earlier dates when i was accidentally searching for March
  9. Sorry about that, I just double checked the dates and i was searching March 15-17.... now i see that it's May and these are weekend dates budget will be more difficult. Give me 5-10 minutes to search for the new (correct) dates and i'll reply to this thread.
  10. Few things to keep in mind: -in Vegas many hotels charge extra for rooms with 2 Queen beds (vs. 1King) so as far as 'room only' cost you may not save that much (or anything) if you're including 4adults in your search (which also presents an issue for using PRICELINE since they only guarantee double occupancy) -most hotels charge resort fees that range from $40-$55/nite so that could be a factor when considering 2 rooms vs. 1 room since your resort fees are going to double (although see the Linq option mentioned below) So these are your best options, imo, along with our best guess for each: Searching 1room/4adults: 5* HOTWIRE Center Strip - Grand Canal Shoppes for $92 Free parking Free internet Resort Suite Casino Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center ==> Palazzo... all-in (after taxes, resort fees, etc, etc) you're about $330 (although our Hotwire Coupon takes $10 off so really about $320) and worth extending your budget, imo, for this truly 5 star hotel Searching 2rooms/4adults: 4* HOTWIRE Center Strip - High Roller Promenade for $29 Pet friendly Boutique hotel Casino Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Spa services ==> The Linq which comes to about $301 all-in (including resort fee for both rooms) You could also do 1room/4adults at the Linq for about $250, but if you don't typically (or ever) get to stay at a 5 star hotel i would spend the extra money for the Palazzo. Not only do you get to experience a 'true' 5 star hotel, but the rooms here are oversized which be much more comfortable for 4guests vs. a 'standard' hotel room. Your thoughts on the above? 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. EDIT TO ADD: we will keep all posts for this trip in this thread. If you ultimately use PRICELINE (which i don't recommend for your situation based upon the occupancy issue i mentioned above) we can move the entire thread to that section of the board.
  11. Welcome to BetterBidding! Few things to clarify in order to get started... Are you looking for one room for the four of you or two separate rooms? You're not going to find any 'on-strip' hotels that have a free breakfast (if that is what you were referring to). Almost all casino hotels on the strip have buffets, but they are not included in the room rate and are additional. Using a ballpark number breakfast is usually about $8-12/per person, lunch $14-$22/per person, dinner really depends upon what is offer and can be anywhere from $14-$45 (the higher end having things like shrimp, crab legs, etc.) First and foremost let us know regarding the occupancy (1room/4guests vs. 2rooms/2guests each) and we'll be able to take it from there. 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.
  12. Yes, please continue this thread. Is there anything in particular you are looking for in a hotel for this trip? What is your maximum budget?

  13. For this offer: 3.5* HOTWIRE Central Harrisburg for $74 Free parking Free internet Pet friendly Indoor pool(s) Airport shuttle Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) ==> Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel is the best guess 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. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you found a work around to avoid the hotels in the zone that you don't want while targeting the one that you do want. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Enjoy the rest of your stay.
  15. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you figured out which hotel this would be and that you're happy with the deal.

  16. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for but sorry to hear the hotel did not 'do the right thing' by giving you a room to accommodate the number of guests on your reservation. For now we will give them the benefit of the doubt that it was an oversight and they would have changed your room if you had brought it to their attention. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us update this hotel in the Kansas City Hotwire Hotel List. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Hope your kids at least got to use the pool and enjoyed it!
  17. New Buffalo, MI is not a very popular area as far as people who use the forum, so the odds of finding any meaningful information in a calendar of wins from somebody who is traveling there on/around the same dates as yours is very slim. Please post in the Michigan Priceline hotel forum along with the dates of your stay and any other details that may be important (desired star rating, budget, etc) and we will take it from there. 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. Thanks!
  18. Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your win with the board. I will have a look as to why the Ottawa hotels are not appearing in the Canada Hotwire Hotel List, thank you for letting us know (as i do see hotels in this area in the database). If you're not using it, do check out the recent updates to our BiddingHelper tool, as this hotel (and most others) is easily identified. Simply do a search at BiddingHelper.com, click the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab (or the PRICELINE EXPRESS tab), and the hover your mouse/click on the blue 'FIND MATCH' button. Glad to see you're happy with the results of this one as it looks like a great deal and BIG DISCOUNT to regular rates. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.

  22. If you recall, can you please close your previous Hotwire Scottsdale hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip.
