  1. Congratulations on your success! Glad to hear the new RevealHotels.com tool was helpful to you and that the hotel you were hoping for was offered for your dates... please help spread the word about this new feature. This should prove to be super convenient given this will be a continuation of your previous nites. If you let the property know at check-in that you have a separate reservation for additional nites there is a chance you may not even need to change rooms (usually with a hotel it's not a problem, but with this being a timeshare, it will depend upon who actually owns the unit you're assigned to)s Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great trip!
  2. Didn't HOTWIRE have the $104 (previously) and $115 (now): 4* HOTWIRE Disney Springs for $115 Free Internet Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Golf Tennis Blind Accessible ==> B Resort & Spa in the Disney Springs Resort Area If you're looking for additional options that are on-site or include Disney perks i'm also seeing: Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista for $93/nite Best Western for $106/nite ... if either of these work better for your plans. 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.
  3. Welcome to BetterBIdding! Found this offer: 3.5* HOTWIRE Universal Orlando Resort for $198.73 Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant ==> Universal's Aventura Hotel This property, as well as most other Hotwire hotels, can be easily identified with our latest development, RevealHotels.com I assume the property above works for your needs? 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.
  4. I'm not currently seeing any HOTWIRE (or PRICELINE EXPRESS) offers for on-site Disney properties at $150 or under. As far as i know The B Resort does offer Disney perks, so is the objective to find additional options that are similarly priced which also offer the same Disney benefits... or is there something about the B Resort that you don't like that you're looking to improve upon? (other than price) Would you go over your $150 budget for something on-site? If so, what would be the maximum for an on-site property? 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.
  5. Please start by following-up your previous Seattle Priceline hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip. Please remember to follow-up your threads with your wins/decisions as you make them (even if you don't ultimately use PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book direct, etc) as this help keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone... as well as being a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your travel plans. Thanks. For the hotel above: 4* HOTWIRE Fisherman's Wharf for $121 Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible ==> Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf would be my best guess for this one You can easily identify this hotel, or just about any other Hotwire property, using our latest tool: RevealHotels.com Does this work for your needs this trip? If not, let us know more about what you're looking for and your maximum budget, and we will try to help you find something that meets your criteria. I will add that what appears to be the highly rated Argonaut Hotel is available for about $25/nite more than the listing above, and would be a BIG jump in rating/quality.

  6. Congratulations on your success... a very nice deal, and as you point out, any savings can go towards making your commute/travel throughout the trip a bit easier. I'm not local to the Chicago area, but as far as i know travel at 8pm will not be an issue (i'm assuming on the Blue Line which is what takes you from O'Hare to the 'downtown' area... once downtown you may need an additional transfer). If you do decide to take a taxi i'm sure they will have one (ie- a small SUV, minivan, or one with a large trunk) that can handle your luggage and accommodate you... if you decide to Uber/Lyft there are options for a larger vehicle and i would opt for that since many of the 'standard' vehicles are of the smaller economy type and 4 people with 4 pieces of luggage would more than likely be a bit tight. Taxi/Uber pick up passengers (and their luggage) at the airport all of the time, so they should be prepared to accommodate families of 4 (or even 5) plus luggage. To add, i highly recommend any location of Lou Malnati's for an excellent rendition of Chicago Deep Dish. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your bidding. Have a great trip! EDIT TO ADD: i don't use Uber that much, but i just checked on my mobile, they have a class of service called 'UberXL' which accommodates up to 6 passengers, so a vehicle such as this should easily accommodate 4 people with luggage (they also offer UberSUV but this is substantially more expensive than UberXL and i suspect that 'XL' should meet your needs unless all 4 piece of luggage are extremely oversized)
  7. I helped a relative get a hotel in Chicago during Lalapalooza this past year, he was not going for that event, but planned a trip that 'just so happened' to be during the event. There is no telling if prices this year will move in a similar fashion as they did last year, but prices remained high but came a little lower about 2 weeks before the trip (he ultimately paid about low $200's, so even though prices dropped a bit they were still well about the $99 price of this offer). However, that is cutting it very close unless you have a reasonable back-up plan (and even more difficult if this is part of an otherwise bigger trip, where there are other moving parts/itineraries involved). Anyway, with the above noted, for this one: 4* Magnificent Mile - Gold Coast (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $99/nite with: Free Internet Available Pets Allowed No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Fitness Center Handicapped Rooms/Facilities Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Access ==> best guess would indeed be The Ambassador If you do choose to wait, i would book something thru RefundableRates.com that would be refundable up until a few days before your arrival, at least this way you are protected from rates moving substantially higher from here (or if hotels begin to sell-out for the event)... and can also take advantage of any lower prices that come along (although sub-$100 may be difficult to beat) 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 and congratulations on your success! Glad to see you're happy with the win and looking forward to your stay at this property. Unfortunately 'resort fees' are becoming more and more common these days, but at least they apply equally to all customers, not just those who have received a discounted rate.

  14. Thank you for closing this thread with your decision. Don't forget to check PRICELINE 'regular rates' too as they often have promotions that offer food/beverage credit, extra amenities, etc. Hope you had an enjoyable (and profitable) stay.
  15. Congratulations on your success! At almost half off this looks to be an excellent deal for these dates. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add the amenity set for this property to the San Francisco Hotwire Hotel List. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  16. I assume this is the one in the Montego Bay Oceanfront zone? If so, for this one: 4* Montego Bay Oceanfront (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $199/nite with: Free Parking Free Breakfast Fitness Center Restaurant Free Internet available Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Free Internet in room ==> Sunscape Cove Montego Bay Resort and Spa - All Inclusive would be my 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.

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.
  18. I'm not seeing any 3 star hotels offered in this zone when searching HOTWIRE for your dates. To confirm, you are searching Sat October 5 - Sunday Oct 6?' If you still see this offer, are you searching for more than one room or for something other than the default 2adults/0children? Are you able to click thru on the offer and get to the booking page? 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: maybe it's 4 star rated?
  19. Best guess for the HOTWIRE property above would be the Sunscape Cove Montego Bay. 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.

  20. JaeLy, Welcome to BetterBidding! For this offer: 4* Downtown Nashville (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $296/nite with: Pets Allowed Restaurant Free Internet available Free Internet Fitness Center ==> 21c Museum Hotel Nashville would also be my best guess for this one I don't believe this is the Renaissance as it has different amenities then LizzyLee's priceline express win, as well as the fact that the Renaissance does not allow pets, whereas the offer above indicates Pets Allowed . 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.
  21. This is most likely not the Renaissance since this listing includes a 'Pets Allowed' amenity but the Renaissance does not allow pets. We need more information in order to look into this property (and why we asked the OP for more details so we could replicate their search) but unfortunately they have not yet responded. 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.
  22. Welcome to BetterBidding and congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received a great deal for this stay and are pleased with the results. If the 2 Queen bed room is not ideal for your situation, you can always ask at check-in for a different room configuration, most hotels are happy to accommodate as long as there is availability (and you're at the same 'room class'... you may want the presidential suite but they're not likely going to give you that, even if available ) 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 stay... and have fun spending the savings elsewhere!
  23. Welcome back! Best guess/comments for each: 4.5* Broadway at the Beach - Grande Dunes (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $81/nite with: Free Parking Restaurant Indoor Swimming Pool Free Internet available Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center ==> Marina Inn at Grande Dunes 4* HOTWIRE North Myrtle Beach - Ocean Front for $127 Free Parking Free Internet Beachfront Oceanfront BR1 Kitchen Indoor Pool Smoke Free A/C ==> North Beach Plantation 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.

  25. My suggestion(s): 4.5* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $262/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Free Internet in room Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> Crowne Plaza HY36... good location, walk-able to both Times Square and the Javitz Center (about 10 minutes to each), new hotel (about 2-3 years old), and is very well reviewed 4.5* HOTWIRE Times Square for $289 Free Internet Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Wheelchair Accessible ==> The Time New York... i know a little less about this one, but it does get very good reviews and i have included since it's directly in the Times Square zone, although this would require a short cab ride or mass transit to the Javitz Center (or a 25 minute walk) Do either of the above work for your needs this trip?
