  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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?

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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

  13. Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your win with the board, helping us confirm this property for the Priceline Express Hotel List.

  14. 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)
  15. You're welcome! Hope you find RevealHotels.com as useful as all of our other tools and features.
  16. 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!
  17. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received a great deal for this stay... a substantial upgrade to the hotels you were originally considering for not really much more in price. 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. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and that you're happy with the results! (and that you were able to use the new Hotwire Coupon ) As you're heading back from the city one nite, if you're looking for a late nite 'snack' stay on the N or W train to the Broadway stop (don't confuse with Manhattan's Broadway, this is in Astoria/Queens) this place has one of the best square slices around (other pizza/food there is 'ok', but the square slices are what shine... and if you're just ordering slices you need to sit at the 'pizzeria area' on the left rather than the 'restaurant' area on the right: Sac's Place 3511 35th Ave (or you could make it an expensive lunch by ordering a whole square pie OR pair with some salads/appetizers/entrees for a casual dinner) EDIT TO ADD: i just learned that they closed this location and moved to 'Kaufman Astoria Studios'... but i can't vouch if things are the same at the new location, apparently no slices at the new location (for the time being) and they have left their coal over at the old location, so tough call to make... i'll have to try to do some 'research' next time i'm out that way Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  19. Correct, which is why i tried to clarify before proceeding. So you have the Villa Florence Hotel Hotel option above thru HOTWIRE, or you have this option from PRICELINE EXPRESS: 4* Union Square West (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $249/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> Hotel Adagio is our guess for this one. NOTE that all priceline reservations are for double occupancy, this this offer provides a 'Bed Choice' of 2 Queen Beds. Although technically your room is still booked for double occupancy, i don't know of anyone who has yet had an issue showing up with a 3rd/4th guests when a specific room type was booked and that room is designed to accommodate the number of guests in the group. Also, as priceline doesn't indicate that this property has a resort fee (whereas the HOTWIRE above does) the price difference between the two is not as much as it may appear at first glance. Thoughts on either of these? 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. Welcome to BetterBidding! Are you searching for 2 rooms? (as HOTWIRE only allows you to search for up to quad occupancy per room) If not, are you just hoping for the best that the room will be able to accommodate 5 guests? Let us know the above and we'll move forward from there, as our suggestions will differ based upon the number of rooms/guests that you're looking for in order to accommodate 5 people. 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- to answer your question regarding the hotel above: 4* HOTWIRE Union Square East for $203 Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> Villa Florence Hotel Hotel is the best guess for this one
  21. New hotels can/are added all the time, some hotels are removed, as well as the star rating of exiting hotels being upgraded/downgraded. As well, remember that when bidding on Priceline the star rating you choose is the minimum that you're willing to accept, so an upgrade to a higher rated hotel is also always a possibility as well. However, if you're not yet ready to commit at this point in time i wouldn't get too wrapped up in trying to figure out the results based upon what is showing today, as a LOT can potentially happen/change between now and when you're plans are firm. 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 if/when your plans are firm and you're ready to move forward.
  22. Welcome (officially) to BetterBidding! Glad to see you scored a nice deal at the hotel you were hoping for and that you find the board information helpful. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your bidding. Have a great stay!
  23. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you got two nice deals for each leg of this trip and that you're all set and looking forward to your family vacation. 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 trip!
  24. Congratulations on your success... a very nice rate for NYC at any time of year! An excellent example of how rates can differ greatly, even from one day to the next, as this Sunday of a holiday weekend is inexpensive even though it is during peak season... try a midweek nite just a week later and i'm sure you'll see rates spike substantially higher. 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.
  25. I am able to get the details of this one now: 3.5* Downtown Detroit (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $106/nite with: Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> Detroit Marriott At The Renaissance Center or the Courtyard by Marriott Detroit Downtown would be my best guesses for this one. Given this property does not offer a pool, which the Courtyard has but the Renaissance does not, i would favor this one more likely being the Renaissance, but you should at least be prepared for either (although the Courtyard seems less likely than the Renaissance, imo) 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.
