  2. Hello BB family! Please help us ID this HOTWIRE hotel 3* $84 a night 5/25/14 One night for 2 adults 95% recommended Trip Advisor 4 out of 5 Free Parking Free Breakfast Free Internet Indoor Pools Airport shuttle Fitness Center Pools Business Center Thank you,
  3. I'm hoping that by August some of the remodeling will be done. As for parking if we get in soon enough, we might be able to park under Boston Common for about $30 on the weekend. It's 4 blocks away, but I can drop the fam at the hotel and park. Thanks everyone - I'm a big fan of this site.
  4. Finally won a bid for Courtyard Boston Downtown (Theatre District) for $110 on Priceline. The great savings will be offset by insane parking costs of $40 a night. From reviews I'm worried about the size of the rooms and negative reviews about remodeling. I was really trying to get Medford / Somerville, but had to rebid and add zones. I didn't figure I'd get anything downtown for this cheap so I added it - now I'm stuck. Oh well.
  5. Thanks - my criteria is 3 star or better. Within 20 minutes of TD Banknorth Garden. Must be close to a T stop. Under $200 including Parking. Either Free or paid but under $200 a night. I'll try your suggestion, check comments on TripAdvisor. Thanks!

  11. That seems right. All the options for lodging down there makes me dizzy! Does this seem like a good deal for this type of property?

  17. Hello I'm back to close out this thread with what we decided. I've been to NYC dozens of times. On another trip I'd give Jersey City a try. But bringing older people down to NYC for the first time, in the winter, convenience was #1. So we opted for the more expensive Long Island City (10 minutes to Midtown on the subway). Using the betterbidding links, we couldn't get a win in from PRICELINE up to $190 a night - didn't try higher. I did get the Hotel Verve for $154 (King rm), and $195 (2 doubles room) including breakfast and free cancellation. I'm happy with how it ended up - thanks for the research and help BB!
  18. That's good to know - I had heard from someone on TripAdvisor that it was a 2 block walk to the bus? Our plan is a full day in the city, probably returning to the hotel after a show (11-12 pm). I do know the risks with Priceline and I've only gotten burned once at Niagara Falls. I figured if it's a 3 * hotel on LI our odds are pretty good that they will have a room with 2 double beds (we only need one of the two rooms to have this). Let me ask this: I've already bid up to $180 on Priceline and been rejected. Added all the Manhattan Zones obviously. Do you see any reason for that to change or become more available at LIC? Or should I just move on to the NJ location? Thanks!
  19. Good idea - so let me clarify a bit What we need: Dec 7 - 9 for touristy trips into the city. 2 rooms, for a total of 4 adults and 2 children (12 and 6). Hoping for a 3* in Long Island City near subway. We're driving in and parking. I'd be thrilled to get the Holiday Inn Manhattan View. We are traveling in 1 vehicle from New England. My preference is a 3* in LI city for a max of $180 a night (not incl parking, taxes etc). If I cannot get into LIC I'd consider Jersey City on Hotwire, but the transportation doesn't appear to be as smooth. Walking 2 blocks to a bus, transfering to PATH train, then more subway transfers in NYC. Thanks again Better Bidding! I'm very comfortable with MTA, not so much with PATH and NJ busses.
  20. Just to follow up... I've been bidding on PRICELINE for a 3* in Long Island City and I've had no luck bidding from $120 up to $180. Will let people know what we finally win with..
  21. Right - that's why I prefer HOTWIRE. But most of the reviews I've read have mentioned good sized rooms. One of our rooms could have a single king or queen, but the other would need 2 beds.
  22. I love the site - but I'm still not 100% sure how to use it to it's fullest. Here's what we want to do: What we need: Dec 7 - 9 for touristy trips into the city. 2 rooms, for a total of 4 adults and 2 children (12 and 6). 3* in Long Island City near subway. We're driving in and parking. I'd be thrilled to get the Holiday Inn Manhattan View ( as others have won) but I need some bidding help. I typically use HOTWIRE, but everything I've read here points to the 3* hotel they feature being in Maspeth. Please advise,
  23. Thanks - that looks like a good one, but we may lean toward Long Island City for easier/quicker access to NYC. From what I can see your 2 options are ferry for $9 ea way or bus stop 2 blocks away, 40 minute ride to midtown.
