  1. I don't believe you previously asked for a link to NYOP, and therefore i didn't know to provide one. You had asked for a way to see threads pertaining to 'Fenton' which is the purpose of the link above. As priceline continues to move/hide the link to Name Your Own Price, we have set up the following page for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com We can't offer any suggestions for bid prices or strategies without knowing your travel dates, since prices differ from one nite to the next. For multiple reasons i prefer not to use the app.
  2. I'm not seeing the 2.5* when searching for your dates, i'm seeing this one: 2.5* Fort Lauderdale Downtown - Cruise Port - Convention Center (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $246/nite with: Free Breakfast Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Hampton Inn Fort Lauderdale/Downtown Las Olas and for a higher star rating for just $20 more: 3.5* Fort Lauderdale Downtown - Cruise Port - Convention Center (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $268/nite with: Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Crowne Plaza Hotel and Resort Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise The 2.5 star that i'm not seeing (if you are still seeing that one, can you click on it and get to the checkout page... and if so, are you using any filters to have this one appear?) might be the Fairfield Inn and Suites Fort Lauderdale Downtown/Las Olas, but i can't say with any degree of certainty without being able to see the offer on my own search.

  3. No, as the difference is that i was searching for 2 adults... in many areas searching for more than double occupancy will increase the price (and sometimes even cause different hotels to be offered, so important to include this information in your post to ensure we research the correct hotel). Based upon searching for 3adults/0children: 4* HOTWIRE Santa Barbara Beach for $149 Free internet Pet friendly Near beach Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center ==> Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara 3* HOTWIRE Santa Barbara Beach for $142 Free parking Free breakfast Free internet Near beach Pool(s) ==> Mason Beach Inn I now (when searching for 3 adults) see the same prices as you.

  4. GREAT... glad to hear you had a nice stay and that your friend was impressed! Often airport hotels get 'tired' quickly since there are so many single nite stays (7 different guests in 7 nites creates more wear and tear on a room than 1 guest for 7 nites) so it's nice to hear that this is a good one. We'll expect to see her around in the board in the future. Thanks for the follow-up!
  5. Hi, The prices are i'm seeing are higher than what you have listed... are you quoting rates in USD (as the prices below are in USD) and/or are you searching for something other than the default 1room/2adults/0children? For the first hotel: 4* HOTWIRE Santa Barbara Beach for $129 Free internet Pet friendly Near beach Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center ==> Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara For the second: 3* HOTWIRE Santa Barbara Beach for $133 Free parking Free breakfast Free internet Near beach Pool(s) ==> Santa Barbara Guest House When searching using our BiddingHelper.com tool you should be able to see each of these names by clicking the EASY VIEW tab and then hovering your mouse over the 'SEE MATCH from HOTEL LIST' button within each listing.

  6. For the 3.5* i'm seeing this one, which has the same amenities but is pried at $102/nite: 3.5* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $102 Free parking Free breakfast Free internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center ==> TownePlace Suites Orlando at FLAMINGO CROSSINGS Town Center/Western Entrance is the best guess here 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. I see them now... 3* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $258 Free internet Resort Airport shuttle Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Golf nearby Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired ==> Disney's All-Star Music Resort is my best guess for this one I'll be back in about an hour or so to have a look at the 3.5 star.

  8. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and that this property works out well 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 this leg of your trip.
  9. Welcome to BetterBidding! Not sure if i'm seeing the same results or not, so we can replicate your search, can you confirm if you're searching for something other than the default 1room/2adults/0children (from your screen name i'm thinking we may not be searching for the same number of rooms/adults/children)... we'll then have a closer look at each of these offers. 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. Congratulations on your success! Glad to hear this hotel will work well for your plans and that you're happy with the outcome. Looks like a very good deal and the refrigerator in the room is a big plus (as food/drink on the Strip in Vegas has been getting expensive) 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 at the casinos.
  11. Here is a LINK to all posts on the board that include the word 'Fenton', but keep in mind that the prices you see may have little to do with what is available/needed for your own dates. Let us know the dates of your stay and we will suggest a bidding strategy for you to follow. Also, if you're able, please follow-up your previous Hotwire Mexico thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip (even if you canceled the tip, didn't use PRICELINE /HOTWIRE, booked a regular rate hotel, 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.
  12. Congratulations on your success! I think this location works out extremely well for you and glad you were able to work out the right pricing. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your time in NYC and whichever shows you ultimately decide to see.
  13. We can't deep link directly to HOTWIRE deals (their link structure does not make it possible) Search using BiddingHelper.com and rollover the FIND MATCH from HOTEL TO LIST button to find the deal and ensure its the same property.
  14. When i click that think i get this message: If you click the link above (or the hotel details page after clicking the link in the search results) do you get the booking page... or a message similar to what i have posted? Do you see this offer a NEW PRICELINE EXPRESS search and, if so, are you able to click thru to get to the booking page?
  15. What is it that you are looking for in a hotel for this trip and what is your maximum budget? Do you have to stick with the Rittenhouse Square zone or was price the attraction to the one 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.
  16. Sticking with Thur-Mon... April 2-6: I know it's not in the right area, but the reviews are too good and the price (relative to other options) to not consider: 4.5* Lower East Side - Chinatown (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $136/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Hotel 50 Bowery .... but your trip and you know how much you can/can't make the location work, i just get excited when i see such consistently good reviews 4* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $165/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Even Hotel Times Square South... a little over your budget, but you get the benefits discussed previously of the 'Even Hotel' brand but with a much better location that i think meets all of your needs (and excellent reviews) 4* HOTWIRE Midtown East for $126.21 Free internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Business center ==> Fifty NYC 4* HOTWIRE Times Square for $129 Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access ==> Sheraton New York... business and airline crew hotel, so a bit impersonal, but location-wise may be perfect? April 9-13: 4* HOTWIRE Times Square for $139 Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access ==> Sheraton New York (if this is an option is it worth $10/nite to be a week later in the month?) April 16-20: 4* HOTWIRE Midtown East for $144 Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Business center Internet access ==> Fifty NYC April 23-27: nothing very interesting, imo Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board. Thoughts on any of the above?
  17. Not necessarily... but i didn't see any 4 star hotels in this zone when searching for your dates, do you still see this listing on a current PRICELINE EXPRESS search? 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.
  18. No problem... For this offer: 3.5* HOTWIRE Center City West - Rittenhouse Square for $82 Free internet Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Accessible for visually impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility ==> Philadelphia 201 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. Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  19. I assume you're actually looking at this offer from HOTWIRE (and not PRICELINE): 4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $238 Resort Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Golf nearby Spa services ==> best guess for this one is Walt Disney World Dolphin 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. Congratulations on your success! A great deal for this 'true' 5 star property... glad you're happy with the results. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay, and GOOD LUCK in Vegas!
  21. Please let us know the dates of your stay and we will have a look at this offer. 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.
  22. Thank you for closing this thread with your decision. Remember that our Priceline Coupon currently works for 'retail rates' too so it's an easy way to save an additional 5% off. Have a great trip and fun in NYC!
  23. Typically not, you let them know at check-in that you have a separate, but continuous, reservation for an additional nite and they block the room off for you for that additional nite. You may (depending upon the hotel's reservation system) need to show-up at some point in the day on 'switch' day to have them officially check you out and then check you in again, but rarely to you need change rooms (although it's certainly possible you would need to if the hotel was nearly full and the way other guests' extended stays were working out relative to available rooms) Yeah, the few times i have tried to use Amtrak promotions it never seemed to reflect the discount, and their system is pretty archaic that it was frustrating.
  24. The Club Quarters Grand Central was for April 16-20 (i made a mistake on the dates when i posted above, i've since edited)... most of the others that are available 4/17-4/21 disappear or price goes higher... is there a specific one that you see for 4/17 arrival that you would be wanting for 4/16 arrival? We could see if it's offered for 4/17-4/20 and again for the solo nite of 4/16-4/17 (essentially giving you the dates you want but splitting it between two purchases) Which hotel(s) above seemed attractive to you at these prices?
