  1. Welcome to the board and thank you for posting your winning bid! Graduation season can be tough in any college town/area!! Glad you got a roof over your head for the nite! Thanks again for sharing your results.
  2. I think the tip-off for this one is the tennis, but it is "tennis nearby" which could mean anything :) I looked on Expedia's property description for the Monte Carlo and they mention that they have "lighted tennis courts", so although it's just a guess, that would be my top choice if i had to choose. But again, their "nearby" could include just about any property in Vegas. I thought Bally's also based upon the tennis, but i would think Bally's would be more of a 4* hotel rather than a 4.5*. Paris is a good guess as well, but i would lean toward the Monte Carlo if i had to guess from the standpoint that they offer tennis on the premises.
  3. My fault re: the Hotwire amenities, i read your post too fast :) and i apologize. Unfortunately, there's just too many hotels in Times Square that fit the amenties listed). Even still, the Hotwire info is important from the standpoint that you now know NOT to bid over $105 (although the star ratings between Hotwire and Priceline are somewhat difference, at least you have a reference point). There are 3 ways you can do this: 1)To get the lowest price and potentially have to bid again in 72 hours if rejected: 4* MTW try a lowball bid of $75, if rejected use your free re-bid zone and raise bid to $88 If rejected wait 72 hours, proceed again with bids of $88 and then $93 2) For a greater likelihood of getting this 'done' and have a potential overbid of $5/nite 4* MTW try a lowball bid of $75, if rejected use your free re-bid zone and raise bid to $93 3) A little of both... 4* MTW bid $88 (the risk in this is that a lowball $75 bid would be accepted, which would result in an overbid) use your free re-bid zone and bid $93 The prices of $88 and $93 are taken from prior wins that we have seen, for the Hiltonand Westin, respectively. If you are unsure of how re-bid zones work, please ask. You can read about them here: Re-bidding before 72 hours and feel free to post with what you think your re-bidding zone is if you want to confirm it. Any questions regarding the above, feel free to ask. Let us know how it worked, if rejected, post that too and i'll post a follow-up strategy.
  4. For Hotwire assistance, please include the amenites as well (for an explanation of why, see this link: What might be the Hotwire hotel....) Do you have a zone preference? You can see a description of zones here: NYC Zone Descriptions I would assume that midtown east and midtown west would both be fine, but do you have a problem with either of these or want to include any others? I think you should be able to get an under $100 bid accepted, but when you update regarding the zones, i'll detail a bidding strategy for you. PS- don't forget to check out the restaurant link in the "NY Tips" section if you'd like discounts on some good restaurants (we have no affiliation with them, but i love some of their restaurants, and the discounts there make some higher-end meals more affordable)
  5. byeloe, I know Vegas pretty well, and might be able to assist if you include the amenities listed along with the hotel. The amenities are often a greater tip-off to the hotel than the star rating, as discussed here: What my be the Hotwire hotel...
  6. Some properties are willing to discount more than others, which probably takes into a variety of factors such as rent, operating costs, cash flow, etc. Hotels are in a sort of catch-22 in that they don't want to "give away the ranch", but they also collect NO REVENUE for an unused room. (similarly, we often see higher rated hotel on Hotwire sell for less than lower rated hotels in the same search) I've seen the Hyatt go for as low as $27 when they're website was showing $225! If you don't see the rates for the Hyatt increase dramatically i think you will ultimately be successful. If you really want to save the money, i would just continue bidding the Hyatt (by keeping your bids at $27 and re-bids at $30) until end of July/beginning of August, assuming your comfortable waiting that long and trying this bid every few days. In the meantime, it's always a good idea to book a fully cancellable back-up. Thanks for keeping us updated on your progress.
  7. The great thing about this board, is now we all have a good idea of where to start bidding for 3* in the future... sometimes we take information, sometimes we give information :) You got a great deal and cut your costs by about 1/2 compared to a traditional booking. Thanks for updating your post with the results, and have a good trip.
  8. The Venetian in Las Vegas is "known" to only offer their best rate to Priceline 7 days before check-in. This is NOT to say that Priceline doesn't have access to inventory more than 7 days before check-in, it's just to make you aware that it will likely take a higher bid than some of the other "winning bids" that are booked inside of 7 days.
  9. Glad it worked out for you!! If you'd be so kind, could you post your "win" in the Hotwire thread? I will then add a link to this thread which directly connects to your Hotwire results. I guess this is an instance where Hotwire was able to beat Priceline, and an example of why it's important to check both services. I would guess that Priceline would have required a $75 or $83 bid to be successful (if at all), which are other "levels" of accepted bids. Bottom line is that you got what you wanted, and for that i'm thankful. It's also an incredible rate over the $300/nite they're asking! Have a great trip (although i know for you, it couldn't get here soon enough :) ) CLICK HERE to see the post that resulted on Hotwire
  10. This list is NOT a complete list of all hotels that Priceline offers in this area, it is ONLY a compilation of hotels that have already been reported on this forum. Hotels are added/removed by Priceline all the time, and star ratings can change at ANY time. As well, the geographic boundaries of an area are subject to change, so it is always a good idea to look at the Priceline map before purchasing. DO NOT USE THIS LIST to determine what areas to add when attempting to bid again within the 24 hour window (CLICK HERE for information on how to add cities in order to bid again). In light of the above, you MAY get a hotel that is NOT on this list, or get a hotel on this list but at a star level you didn't expect (if the star rating has changed). Lastly, this board (and its members) are here to assist you, if you have a question or are unsure of something, please ask before purchasing (since Priceline stipulates NO cancellations/refunds)! However, by using this board you agree that you do so at your own risk! (in other words, NO WHINING allowed!!)

  11. Yes, as i type this, Miramar only offers 2* and 2.5* hotels, so if you're bidding 3* in the Downtown area it is considered a re-bid zone. I forgot to mention also, that you should be aware (although it's not necessarily a bad thing) that you could be upgraded to a 4* hotel in the area (neither the ES or Marriott Marina); although i think for this zone, and higher than usual occupancy, $63 isn't likely high enough to get upgraded to 4*. Anyone reading this in the future, hotels are added at any time, so be sure to check for yourself (or ask if you are unsure) if the above zone is still a re-bid zone.
  12. I checked rates at the ES website and rooms for your nite are going for $300/nite! (usual rate is ~$200), so that could explain the availability issue. I even called the hotel to double check the rate, and it is indeed $300. The reservation agent didn't know of any "event" in town that weekend, but did say that availability is a little lower than usual for a date a few months away. Based upon my experiences, the next "level" for an accepted bid is at $75, so i dont think that $62 would be accepted (although it doesn't hurt to try!). If it were me, I would probably try $63 just to "see" if it worked, and if rejected i would go with the $67/nite 3.5* suite via Hotwire thinking that it is indeed the Embassy Suites being offered (assuming that is within the budget that you wanted to spend). You should CHECK HERE first to make certain the amenities are the same. BTW, i notice you said that your stay is for 3 nites, but 10/30-11/1 is only 2 nites, just want to make sure you have the correct number of nites or dates for your stay. Let us know what you decided to do and the results, i'm anxious to see how this one turns out. Of course, any questions, feel free to ask.
  13. Good for you!! I like to see people "zing" companies that deserve it (and in this case, i believe Hotwire deserves it... charging a such a higher rate for a "blind" purchase than the traditional booking services). I did a search for a one nite stay in the summer for a mid-week nite (the slowest time in Vegas) and did indeed show a 5* hotel at $185 (which i suspect is the Venetian, and i also suspect high for this nite), so i think they probably just pulled it only for the nights that you had booked. When you say that the best you could do in comparison would be with Priceline within 7 days of check-in, are you saying that the Venetian only releases inventory to Priceline within 7 days of check-in? (that would be good info to know if that is indeed the case) The 4.5* hotel could be almost anything, but i know Vegas pretty well and might have a better guess if you supplied the amenities. Congratulations on your "refund check"... that took some guts, so Vegas better watch out when you come to town! :)
  14. Is $30 your maximum bid? (if it is, it's ok, but just want to know for guidance purposes) If you're not successful at $27, i don't think you'd be successful at $30. If the Hyatt isn't available for your dates, the next lowest accepted bid i've seen in the area (which wasn't an over-bid) is $40. Since you have 2 re-bids in this zone (which if you don't understand i'd be more than happy to explain to you in more detail via email or IM) i usually recommend bidding $27, $35, $40. Based upon my explanation above, i usually don't expect the $35 bid to yield any accepted results, but i throw it in "just in case" something has been added to the area or one of the hotels have lowered their Priceline rates (as jumping from $27 to $40 is a big step up). Since your dates are far enough away, i would guess that the Hyatt has not yet released any inventory to Priceline (this can change at any time) and you can keep trying at $27 for the next few weeks. If you'd rather just "get it done", then i suspect a $40 bid may be necessary and likely land you the Sheraton. Lastly, i did some research and found a $140 rate for the Hyatt for that nite. This doesn't change the strategy at all because it's still within the range of a typically accepted $27 bid, but didn't know where you saw the $100 rate. Any questions, feel free to follow up. Please keep us updated.
  15. OK, you have a few scenarios that you can play out. Keep in mind that you could always get the Marriott Marina which i hear is a fine hotel itself(or some other newly added hotel). If you absolutely want the Embassy Suites, you may want to consider Hotwire which shows a 3.5* with the Suite icon (believed by past history to be the Embassy Suites) for $67/nite. If you'd rather try to get something cheaper and "risk" getting the Marriott Marina (or some other newly added hotel) then.... My guess is that it will take a bid of $57, as there have been hotels won in late-Oct and mid-Nov at this rate. However, since you have one re-bid zone available, you can try to low-ball it at first if you desire, if so: Bid 3* at $51, if rejected (likely) then... Add your re-bid zone and bid $57 If you have any questions regarding any of the above (like what your re-bid zone is), feel free to ask. As i always offer as well, i can make myself available to "walk you thru the process" via Instant Messenger (AOL or Yahoo) so that i can explain each screen to you as you bid on your own computer OR just answer any questions you have along the way. If there are no add'l questions, let us know if you plan on going the Hotwire or Priceline route, and how you make out.
  16. GREAT!! Glad we were of help. Thanks for posting your results, enjoy your cruise!

  20. Not at all... this should be do-able :) The Downtown area is the closest to the pier. The 2 "low bid accepting" hotels in the Downtown Miami area are the Hyatt and the Sheraton. The Hyatt often goes for as low as a $27 winning bid, while the Sheraton often goes for $40 (both are 3* and get very good reviews). When bidding 3* in Downtown Miami, you have 2 re-bid zones. If you're not familiar with re-bid zones, i recommend you read this: Re-bidding Explained I would start by bidding $27 and if rejected, re-bid using $35, if rejected, re-bid at $40. I personally wouldn't go above the $40 mark at this point since these 2 hotels can usually be had for the above rates, so if rejected i would just try again in a week or so. I did check the Hyatt and their current rate implies that you have a decent chance at success. If you need 2 rooms, make sure you select 2 rooms when you start the bidding process. If you're new to Priceline, i'd be happy to "walk u thru the process" and be available via IM (Yahoo or AOL) to "talk to you live" in case you have any questions along the way. Let me know how you make out, or if you'd like me to talk you through the process.
  21. MY fault.... been staring at the screen too looonng! Didn't see the demarkation of Priceline and Hotwire. Thanks for clarifying.
  22. If you click the Priceline logo at the top of the screen, you can put each city into the box and you'll see what hotel levels are offered. As of this writing, Marathon has 1* and 2* hotels, Islamorada has 2* and 2.5* hotels. We haven't had any reported wins in this area yet, so hard to guess what hotels they may actually be. I looked at Expedia and Orbitz for Islamorada and the only chains that i recognized was the Hampton Inn and Days Inn (although Priceline can use smaller independent hotels as well), but i would GUESS that both of these hotels are offered in this zone (as well as some others). You may also want to try Hotwire which has an Islamorada zone, although they showed no availability for the random date i entered. If/when you're ready to bid, supply the dates and i'll try to come up with a bidding strategy for you.
  23. Thanks for posting!! That's a great deal for South Beach. It would be great if you could also post taxes (WHY POST TAXES?) and and dates of your stay. I have personally stayed at this hotel, and you can read my review in the Hotel Review section at the bottom of the main page. (a LINK for the lazy) I'd be unimpressed if i was paying their rates thru conventional means, but at $85 it's a great deal. I hear a lot of basketball stars and some famous music people stay here when they are in town (although i didn't see any). FYI- this hotel charges a resort fee of <i think> $10/day Have a great trip, and thanks again for posting.
  24. Thanks for the follow-up!! Just to clarify, all of these hotels are in the (Sunrise - Weston - Plantation) zone? I'm usually not this much of a pain in the a$$, but i'm happy to get some new Hotwire listings, and i want to get it correct. Thanks again.
  25. Thanks for posting and welcome to the board! Do you happen to remember the star ratings for the above hotels (possibly?) and the amenities listed before you bought (not likely). If you have any of this info, please post it and i'll add these hotels to the "Hotel List by City" for the area. Thanks again for taking the time to post your prior wins.
