  5. Congratulations on your success! Glad to hear that BetterBidding continues to be helpful to you... and more importantly for this particular stay that you landed a great deal at a hotel that works out PERFECTLY for your plans! 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 hopefully have fun at the coaching certification (if done right they can be educational and interesting... if done poorly half the time is spent looking at your watch trying to make the time move more quickly!)
  6. I have not been told that it is one per account (or maybe it's one per identical itinerary?), but that sounds like what that message is indicating, i would try again making sure that both: 1) using a different account (ie- if a spouse, child, or anyone else you may be traveling with has their own account/email set-up... or create one) 2) you're trying the purchase after clicking a HOTWIRE link from one of our sites (BetterBidding, BiddingHelper, RevealHotels, etc) Let us know if the above solves the problem. Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board.
  7. To confirm, your dates are Oct 12-18 (just clarifying given the non-US data format) and this is in the 'Center Strip - Grand Canal Shoppes' zone? If so, best guess for this one: 5* HOTWIRE Center Strip - Grand Canal Shoppes for $177 Free Parking Free Internet Resort Suite Casino Fitness Pool Restaurant Business ==> The Palazzo You usually narrow the field down to just one hotel using our sister site RevealHotels.com (which also confirms the above as the Palazzo... there is another 5 star offered in this zone that is revealed as the Venetian, should this one be of any interest) Please remember to start your purchases with the HOTWIRE links on the board. Let us know what you decide and how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  8. Please start by following-up your previous Maui Hotwire hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip. Please remember to follow-up your threads with your results/decisions as you receive them so that the information can best help others in a timely manner. For your NYC trip above, what is your desired star rating and expected budget? (per nite before fees/taxes) 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.
  9. Unfortunately there isn't much we can do on our end regarding the previous Hotwire Coupon not working on the first of your two purchases... HOTWIRE gives us the coupon to promote but all aspects of the purchase are done on their own website. You would probably have a better case if the coupon showed the discount and then you were charged a different amount, but as the coupon never 'took' and reflected a discount, they would likely say that you were charged correctly.
  10. I was just researching further for you when i saw that you had replied. Great to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and that it is more convenient for your plans this trip than your previous hotel you had reserved as a back-up. You should be confident in the hotels identified by RevealHotels.com, but of course we are always happy to look into hotels further for you (or if RevealHotels indicates that the hotel is not identified). Thank you for sharing your results with the board and helping us add this hotel to the San Francisco Hotwire Hotel List. Have a great trip!
  11. Congratulations on your success! Although it's possible that you could have gotten this for a few dollars less, i'm sure it would not have been too much less, and still a very nice deal... especially when compared to the $189/nite regular hotel rate thru traditional booking channels! 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.
  12. Is this a continuation of, or replacement dates, for your previous Hotwire New York hotel thread? If replacement dates please let us know and we will merge this thread with that one... if this is a continuation of that trip (and you're currently in NYC) please conclude that thread with whatever you decided to do 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. As for your trip above... If you provide the full details (location, star rating, zone, check-in, check-out, room rate per nite, amenities, etc.) for this hotel offer we should (in all likelihood) be able to narrow it down to which one is most likely. This should also provide a better idea of what the room situation is mostly going to be like at that specific property. Please provide the URL of the page that you're on that allows you to indicate the number of adults/children. 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.
  13. For this hotel offer: 3* Overland Park (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $67/nite with: Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Indoor Swimming Pool Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Free Internet in room Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> Courtyard by Marriott Kansas City Overland Park/Convention Center would be my best guess NOTE: if interested in this property use the link above so as to not confused with a different 3 star hotel offered for $68/nite but i'm unable to get the full details/description of that one... not sure if it's me or if an issue on PRICELINE's end since i experienced the same issue last week too Not sure how hold the children you're traveling with are, but if you could 'get away with' booking for 2adults/0children i'm also seeing what looks to be the aLoft Leawood for $87/nite, should that be of any interest (although i will also add that at this aLoft a room with a King bed is designated as maximum 2 guests). There are also plenty of hotels near the airport around this price point, but not sure if that will work for your needs or not. 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.
  14. What are the prices that you're currently seeing and what is it that you're hoping to pay? (this will help us better identify something that you would consider to be a 'deal') 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. Glad to see you found something that works for your needs. I believe i saw the Cobblestone hotel Harbor Creek as an opaque offer when researching yesterday... was this a PRICELINE / HOTWIRE purchase or was this a traditional booking? 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.

  17. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you're happy with the hotel and deal you received and that you were able to use the board's Hotwire Coupon. Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the details for this property in the Amsterdam Hotwire Hotel List. Enjoy your stay.
  18. My only issue with this guess is that from this Hawthorn Suites BY Wyndham Erie appears to be 2.5 star rated by Hotwire. ... have you seen this listed on HOTWIRE's website as a 3 star hotel? 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.
  19. For this offer: 5* The Strip - Northeast (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $109/nite with: Business Center Restaurant Airport Shuttle Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center ==> Venetian is my best guess PRICELINE has gotten much better at showing if there is a resort fee or not, but in the handful of situations where there is no resort fee shown but the hotel does in fact collect one, you will still need to pay it. I will add that if you're looking for a 5 star hotel on the strip (or just about any star rated hotel on the strip) you should expect to have to pay a resort fee as all of the hotels are charging one these days. 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. PS- please also follow-up your previous Priceline Las Vegas hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that leg of the 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!

  23. Sorry to hear you're not enjoying your stay at this property. I don't know much about this hotel in particular, but there is not much to see/do in this area and the hotel selection reflect it... most hotels in this neighborhood have seen better days! With the poor reviews (even from HOTWIRE customers) you may want to reach out to them regarding this one, let them know that it's overrated, and that you didn't get what was promised in terms of star rating/quality. You may get some HotDollars to use towards a future purchase, but in addition you will also increase the chances that this hotel gets downgraded to a lower star rated property. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this property to the New York City Hotwire Hotel List. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Hopefully you have an early departure and will be on your way quickly in the morning (after the free breakfast, of course)
  24. You're welcome! Hope you find RevealHotels.com as useful as all of our other tools and features.
  25. Sounds good, but as i mentioned, i can't vouch for it anymore since they have moved... maybe you'll give me the updated review. No matter if the pizza is better, worse, or unchanged... i'm sure you'll have a great trip!
