  1. Welcome to BetterBidding! Using the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com tool to reveal hotels: 5* HOTWIRE Coconut Grove for $192 Free internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Spa services ==> Mr. C Coconut Grove is the best guess for this one Does this work for your plans this trip?

  2. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you're happy with the results, which should be an expensive Valentine's Day weekend for all hotels. 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. Shouldn't be a problem... 95%+ of the time the hotel receives the confirmation almost instantly. In the other instances (less than 5% of the time) the reservation is faxed to the hotel, but this is an automated process that is all done electronically. Should you encounter any issues it should easily be resolved in less than 5 minutes with the hotel calling HOTWIRE with your confirmation number. Looking forward to hearing about, and helping with, your wins during your roadtrip.

  5. Thank you for closing this thread with your decision. The 1st two weeks of December are typically some of the busiest of the year as lots of tourists (especially from overseas) come to NYC to see the window displays and for for last minute holiday shopping. If making this trip in the future if you can delay your arrival until after 12/15 (or even better until after the weekend following 12/15) you should see substantially lower rates. Prices tend to stay low until a few days before New Year's Eve, after which time they tend to drop again and stay low throughout January and February (excluding the nites around Valentine's Day) 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.

Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay (and have fun at the parks!)
  7. This refers to the last person who bought a hotel of this star rating in the zone (and for dates that are different than your own)... it has nothing to do with the current offer. It's possible, although extremely rare. If it does happen, PRICELINE does have a Best Price Guarantee so you wouldn't necessarily be stuck with a bad deal as you should be able to, at the very least, get the price lowered/matched (and for Express Deals the price guarantee is actually 200% of the difference up until midnight the day before you travel).

  8. Welcome to BetterBidding! Using the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com tool: 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $288/nite with: Indoor or Outdoor Pool Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Disney's Beach Club Resort is our best guess for this one I'll add that there is a slight chance this is Disney Contemporary Resort, but i think the Beach Club is the most likely.

  9. Congratulations on your success! With a regular retail rate of over $200+ for this nite this looks to be an EXCELLENT win! Glad to see you scored big on this one, are happy with the results, and have this nite of your summer plans all set. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great stay (and Happy New Year to you as well 😉).
  10. Welcome to BetterBidding! Some thoughts: 4* The Strip - Central East (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $80/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center Casino Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Bally's Las Vegas, which although not the best hotel on the Strip (thus the 4 star rating) most of the standard rooms here have been recently renovated and it has a solid location in the middle of the strip. The casino (which you have to walk thru to get to your room) is still a bit smokey/dingy, but otherwise this is a pretty good value at this price, imo. 4.5* The Strip - Northwest (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $91/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center Casino Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> The Mirage which is 'classic' Vegas and has a beautiful pool area, if that is what is most important to you ONE OTHER OPTION is if you're willing to split your stay you could then stay at a 5 star hotel (Palazzo or Cosmopolitan) for about $100/nite for the first 2 nites of your stay, and then for the last 3 nites do something like Ballys ($115/nite) or Mirage ($118/nite)... to give you an average cost of about $110/nite (upside is that you get a really nice hotel like Palazzo/Cosmopolitan for part of your stay and still something 'very good' for the balance, as well as being able to try two different properties... downside is that you have to change hotels mid-trip) If you wanted to try Bidding for a Hotel Room (use this link for the easiest/quickest access to the bidding page) you could do so in an attempt to beat any of the prices above, but you then lose the ability to choose/guess as to which specific property it is that you will likely end up with.

  11. Sorry, my fault, i was looking at HOTWIRE... i DO see this property on the PRICELINE EXPRESS side: 4.5* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $236/nite with: Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Disney Swan would be my best guess for this one According to THIS PAGE priceline does associate an Airport Shuttle with the Swan.

  12. Welcome to BetterBidding! The only 4.5 star hotel i'm seeing in this zone for your dates is priced at $500+ per nite and does not show an Airport Shuttle amenity... are you still seeing the offer above on your own search and/or are you searching for something other than the default 1room/2adults/0children? 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. You're welcome. Let us know whatever you decide to do for this trip or how we can be of further help.
  14. Using the results from the BiddingHelper.com HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab: 4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $284 Free internet Airport shuttle Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Golf nearby Tennis nearby ==> yes, Beach Club is still my best guess for this one 3.5* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $172 Free parking Free internet Resort Airport shuttle Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) ==> Disney Port Orleans French Quarter is the 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.

  15. Fortunately this is a fairly inexpensive (by NYC standards) time of year in NYC. First glance what looks interesting to me: 4.5* Lower East Side - Chinatown (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $78/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Hotel 50 Bowery, with the board Priceline Coupon brings this in under your $120 all-in price and the best bang for your buck, imo. It's not the most centrally located hotel, but you have lots of subway choices within a few blocks in either direction and what you give up in central location you gain in terms of 'hotel quality' (taking into consideration star rating, reviews, etc) If you're trying to stay more to the lower end of your budget: 3.5* Long Island City (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $47/nite with: Business Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Hotel Vetir 3* Times Square - Theatre District (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $73/nite with: Pets Allowed Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Mayfair NYC 4* Downtown - Wall Street (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $76/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Doubletree NYC Downtown There are a handful of Hilton Garden Inn and/or Springhill Suite type properties offered as well in between the low/high prices above, but figured i'd first see your thoughts regarding the guessed Hotel 50 Bowery vs. the other properties to see if paying near the top end of your budget is worth it for a better experience. 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 your thoughts and we'll take it from there. PS- i'm not a big theater person but i did see Hamilton (my wife won lottery tickets after submitting her email every day for 3 years).... it was a GREAT show; you'll love it!
  16. Assuming you're looking at NYC, that's my neck of the woods, so let us know the details of your trip and we'll try to help however we can.
  17. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you're familiar with this hotel and it's one of your favorites in the area... sounds like a win-win! Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us update the Fort Worth Priceline Express Hotel List. . Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay and return visit to this property.
  18. Yup, thank you for the additional info. If PRICELINE sent you a survey after your stay you may want to mention in it that there was no Free Breakfast, as that is the only way that typically are made aware that there is an incorrect amenity (and even then it takes them awhile to remove it) Thanks again.
  19. Merry Xmas/Happy New Year... and congratulations on your success! Glad to hear you were able to get this one reserved early (one less thing to think about) and that the BiddingHelper.com was helpful with your purchase. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great trip!
  20. Yes, it's certainly possible, we have seen many instances where the hotel received is not listed in the 'regular rate' hotels seen on the search. There are never any guarantees, as we can't see the name of the hotel either , but i'm fairly confident in my guess (if you see other threads on the board you''ll see if we're less confident we will either indicate as such or not make a guess at all).

  21. Welcome to BetterBidding! Best guess for this offer: 4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $283 Free internet Airport shuttle Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Golf nearby Tennis nearby ==> Disney's Beach Club Resort All HOTWIRE reservations are for 'standard' rooms unless otherwise noted (ie- sometimes a 'Bed Choice' is offered and you can select a specific room type). As well, sometimes you can upgrade at check-in for an additional fee, but this can't be guaranteed as it's largely based upon occupancy levels at the property... if Club Level and/or upgraded rooms are sold-out (or every low availability) they may not be offered at any additional price.

  22. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you found an offer that works for your needs and budget, and that you're happy with the results. It doesn't matter to us if you purchased one of the previous offers or not, more important that you found the right hotel for you for this trip. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay and have a Happy Holiday!
  23. They are making the Name Your Own Price harder to find, so we have set up BiddingForHotelRooms.com for the quickest/easiest way to access the bidding page. It has always been important to 'know your prices' to determine a maximum bid, as sometimes a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal (or HOTWIRE offer) can be cheaper than raising your bid further. Our BiddingHelper.com tool is essential (and the reason for creating it) to know your prices thru Priceline/Hotwire with just one search. As well, it has recently been expanded to automatically match the hotel offers with our hotel lists and previous research. If you haven't tried it yet give it a try: 1) search using BiddingHelper.com 2) click the PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE EASY VIEW 3) hover your mouse over (or click if on mobile device) the 'FIND MATCH from HOTEL LIST' button Did you take the 4 star PRICELINE EXPRESS deal or were you not willing to pay any higher than $110? If you went for it what did you get?

  24. NICE!!! Glad to hear of the upgrade option and that you're enjoying your stay.
  25. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see this was the hotel you were hoping for, and even more important, that is has a Indoor Pool. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
