  1. Glad to see you found something that works well for your plans. Not sure if you're visiting a current student or doing the 'prospective student' tour, but if the latter, good luck with that as our household has just gone thru the circuit... not just a waiting game for the college(s) to let us know! Thank you for closing this thread with your decision and using our BiddingHelper.com tool for your purchase. Have a great trip!
  2. Hi, sorry for the delay... BiddingHelper.com identifies this property as the Courtyard by Marriott Long Island MacArthur Airport (it's not instantly ID'd, but i get this result when clicking the 'CLICK FOR HOTEL NAME' button... do you see the same?) 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 what you decide and how it goes or how we can be of further help. PS- i'm somewhat familiar with this area (more so with the NYC metro area) but can probably answer any questions you may have if there is something in particular you're looking for in a hotel for this trip.
  3. Congratulations on your success! Looks like a nice, inexpensive, stay in Vegas. I was Downtown 3-4 months ago and stopped by Circa to check it out... that place is impressive and worth a stop (NOTE: 21+ and older only... no kids on property at all). While at Circa i also grabbed a sandwich at Joe Saginaw's which i also highly recommend (Saginaw is one of the partners of world famous Zingerman's in Ann Arbor). I'm partial to the Georgia Reuben but if you're into Pastrami or Corned Beef those are excellent too (at least that is what Zingermans is best known for). The sandwiches are not cheap, but they're HUGE... and just as delicious as they are large. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay... and good luck in Vegas!
  4. This has now been FIXED! I'm happy to report that the Hotel Lists are now complete and showing the complete list of hotels available. Thank you again for making us aware of the issue.
  5. Congratulations on your win and thank you for sharing it with the board! Posts on the board have been down substantially since Covid, but we have seen a small tick-up recently as things get back to 'normal' and people are beginning to travel again. However, i suspect that posts will not reach their pre-pandemic levels since we have released more self-service tools for users: HotelsRevealed, RevealHotels, and ExpressGuess. This surprised me too as i thought for certain we have seen hotels in this zone before (i have family in the area so i'm always keeping an active eye on the area). I took a deeper look and located a bug that is preventing some hotels from appearing in our Hotel Lists. Thank you for making us aware of the situation and we are currently working on finding a fix. Thanks again for sharing your win and have a great trip! PS- if you have a car, my favorite Cheesesteak place is outside of the city: Dalessandro's Steaks 600 Wendover St Philadelphia, PA 19128 ... since it's outside of center city you can almost always find easy parking on Wendover St in front of the park, but the downside is that this place is extremely popular, so expect a long line.
  6. Congratulations on your win! Hope you're pleased with the results and this hotel will be convenient for your plans while you're in the New Orleans. Thank you for sharing your hotel purchase with the board. 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. Have a great trip!
  7. Lmao0415, welcome to BetterBidding! Although the answer to your question will most likely be specific to the hotel you're staying at, some generalities can made... For the most part, if you're staying at a mid-tier level hotel that offers free breakfast (Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn Express, etc, etc) where breakfast is self-serve in a large room, the chances of having an issue is low. The 'risk' (for lack of a better word) increases if you're staying at a hotel that gives vouchers for breakfast, since you will likely only receive the number of vouchers for the number of registered guests. This is more typical at hotels where breakfast is table service with a waiter/waitress. Have you already purchased a hotel? If so, let us know which one you received (name and location) and we will be able to comment further... if you haven't yet made your purchase let us know the details of the hotel you're considering, we will have a look to research it and then comment accordingly. 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 we can be of further help.
  8. Congratulations on your success... and good to see that you're able to travel again! We're glad to hear you're finding our latest Hotels Revealed site useful; given the slowdown in travel we tried to use the time to develop new tools and make the entire hotel research process quicker and easier. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great trip!
  9. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received a great deal at the hotel you were hoping to land... we're happy to have been able to help. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great trip!

    Did you get that hotel offer to appear or find anything else of interest that works for your plans?
  11. If you don't need to be there over the weekend i'd focus on Sun-Thur nites (Friday departure is OK) if looking to save money. Good luck and let us know whatever you decide or how we can be of further help.
  12. Did you mean to say you don't have flexibility... or that leaving Sun 1/16 or Monday 1/7 is do-able? The Embarc Palm Desert does look to be available for 1/12-1/15 for $159 (plus taxes, resort fee, etc)... if you are flexible and can go from 1/11-1/14 the rate drops to $119/nite and is then within your budget even when considering the resort fee; it's the weekend nites that are going to increase the cost.
  13. Hi allybunnie, Happy New Year and good to see you around the board! There is no more NYOP Bidding on priceline, so your current options are: PRICELINE EXPRESS HOTWIRE PriceBreakers (new product from priceline, they show you 3 hotels and you're guaranteed to get one of the three) While travel has been curtailed over the last year, we have not been resting... we just released a bunch of new tools to assist users with researching the hotels from each service (i've listed each below but you can use the 'REVEAL HOTELS' drop down in the header at the top of the page to access in the future): RevealHotels (Hotwire) ExpressGuess (Priceline Express) 1of3Guarantee (PriceBreakers) You didn't mention your budget, but I am seeing: Embarc Palm Desert for $179/nite over the 3 nites... would this property work for your needs? (the price drops to $139/nite if you're able to stay Sun-Wed instead of Sat-Tues) Let us know how you make out with the site(s) above and how we can be of further help.

    I'm not seeing this offer (which would not be uncommon for PriceBreaker hotels from one search to the next, as well as showing different 'alternative' hotels from the actual underlying property). May i suggest you try to find this same offer via a search at 1of3Guarantee.com ... from there click the blue button and you'll see the name of the underlying hotel. As well, many of the PriceBreaker offers look alike, so using the site linked above will avoid any confusion of us researching a different offer and ensure you're purchasing the hotel you want. Let us know if you have any issues with 1of3Guarantee.com and how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  15. You're welcome. Let us know what you ultimately decide for this trip or how we can be of further help. 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.
  16. There is no more bidding on PRICELINE, your options are: PRICELINE EXPRESS HOTWIRE PriceBreakers (new product from Priceline) For the first two you can search at BiddingHelper.com and use the 'Research' tabs (Priceline or Hotwire respectively) and for the latter you can use our newly launched 1 of 3 Guarantee for help with the underlying hotel name) I'm very familiar with this area if you need help with any of the planning or choosing between two different hotels. Also, to confirm, is your topic title correct and this is a 23 nite stay?
  17. Congratulations on your win! Hope you're pleased with the outcome and this property will work well for your plans this trip. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay and good luck in Vegas!
  18. Hi For this offer: 5* The Strip - Northeast (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $137/nite USD with: Casino Free Internet Free Parking Indoor or Outdoor Pool Airport Shuttle Restaurant Fitness Center Handicapped Rooms/Facilities No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> The Palazzo would be our best guess Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board. Good luck and let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  19. A really nice deal... CONGRATS! It used to be that car rental deals offered some, but not huge savings... but with the recent spike in rental car prices there can certainly be big discounts available. This is great since 'for the most part' car rentals are somewhat of a commodity product; there is usually little difference when comparing Alamo vs. National vs. Budget, where as there can be a big difference between a Hyatt vs. Hilton vs. Marriott. Thanks for sharing your win and have a great time in Vegas! PS- on a recent Vegas trip I visited the Pinball Hall of Fame which was a nice way to spend an hour or so off-strip and away from the casinos (at for someone like myself who spent a large part of my teen years in arcades) and even more worthwhile if you have a car and not paying for the taxi fare to/from. We also stopped by 'container park' which had a very cool vibe and a nice place to relax outdoors with a cocktail (again, taxi fare adds up so nice to do if you have a car (and a designated driver!)). Lastly, we also made an impromptu visit to the Neon Museum which was expensive for what it was and a bit of a letdown.
  20. Congratulations on your success! Glad you received the hotel you were hoping for and were able to take advantage of our Priceline Coupon... should make for a great pre-holiday getaway! Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. We're happy to have been able to help. Have a great trip and enjoy Chicago (please have a piece of deep dish for me!)
  21. This is the one we believe is the Royal Sonesta Chicago River North: 4.5* Downtown - River North (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $113/nite with: Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool 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 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.
  22. Some ideas that i'm currently seeing: Swissotel $112/nite InterContinental Mag Mile $114/nite Club Quarters Central Loop $96/nite Kinzie Hotel $107/nite Central Loop Hotel $108/nite Chicago Marriott Downtown Mag Mile $112/nite Hyatt Regency $113/nite Royal Sonesta $113/nite The Godfrey Hotel Chicago $139/nite Hyatt Centric $146/nite Anything above jump off the page?

  23. You're welcome, always happy to help! If you need additional help with this stay please continue this existing thread (as well as let us know whatever you decide to do for this trip, even if not PRICELINE / HOTWIRE) Is there a specific hotel that you're looking for and/or budget? We could have a closer look to help you find something that you're looking for, as well as give us an opportunity to try out some of the tools we have been working on behind the scenes and hoping to launch in the future.
  24. OK, the 'quick and easy' would be thru PRICELINE EXPRESS: 4* Downtown Long Beach (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $139/nite :: Indoor or Outdoor Pool Restaurant Fitness Center Pets Allowed Handicapped Rooms/Facilities No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Renaissance by Marriott Long Beach or 4* Downtown Long Beach (again, confirm your dates on the landing page) for $155/nite: Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Restaurant Fitness Center Pets Allowed Handicapped Rooms/Facilities No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Hyatt Centric The Pike Long Beach The HOTWIRE one we continue to reference (at $109) should be the Renaissance if you see the '2 Double Beds' offered as one of the bed types offered. The Hyatt Centric will cost (at least) $20+ more per nite, but i can try to kludge that one together if you're interested and willing to pay the extra over the Renaissance. 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 what you decide and how it goes or how we can be of further help.
  25. From my research earlier, it came down to the Renaissance or the Hyatt Centric, which i believe both use this same amenity set. From the room choices of the $109/nite hotel (i am now seeing the $109/nite rate on HOTWIRE) one of the choices is '2 Double Beds' which is consistent with the Renaissance (asfaik the Hyatt Centric has '2 Queen Beds'). Beware of the one that only indicates 'Hotel Chooses Bed Type' as that is a toss-up as to which one this may be (or something entirely different... i haven't dug deeper on that one). As i've been researching your stay I am seeing the Hyatt Centric offered on some searches (typically with a King Bed or Studio Suite option, which is consistent with this property)... is there one of these that you're hoping to target (or avoid)? What hotel is it that you're hoping for this trip? Would either (or neither) the Renaissance or Hyatt Centric be acceptable? If you let us know what you're seeking we can try to play around a bit to find you the one you're hoping for (and supply a link or slightly different search parameter to have it appear for you). Do you need a specific room/bed configuration? Lastly, is PRICELINE EXPRESS an option as i see both of these properties offered there as well?
