  5. Hi Thereuare, For Crowne Plaza Hotel Clark and the Holiday Inn Edison, the rates are for 2 adults and 2 children. I was able to play with the dates by changing one day at a time. For instance if I put in the dates from 7/20-7/24 and the result showed 3.5* in Woodbridge-Edison, I tried again by changing the dates to 7/19-7/24 until the result stop showing the same star and area. Then I would change the date on the other end (7/24 to 7/25). I think it's not so easy if not impossible to do this with Priceline as you are required to change one of the three criteria (zone, star rating and dates). Stan

  9. Hi, I bidded up to $85 for 3* in Edison/Woodbridge area - not accepted. I selected Edison/Woodbridge, 3* , 7/13-7/26, start bid $65 - rejected selected North Brinswick (highest is 2*), 3*, 7/13-7/26, bid $70 - rejected selected Baskin Ridge (highest is 2.5*), 3*, 7/13-7/26, bid $80 - rejected changed date to 7/13 - 7/25, bid $85 - rejected. Hotwire has 3* in same area for $79 for 7/13-7/24 for 2 adults and 2 kids. Is Hotwire 3* rating the same as Priceline 3* rating? Am I correct that Priceline 3* has better hotels that Hotwire? What are the Hotwire's 3* hotels ? Any help with what I did in my bidding above would be apprciated. I only have through tonight to make my booking. I used Betterbidding link to get to Priceline and Hotwire. Thanks. Stan
  10. Hi, 2 adults and 2 children. For HOTWIRE, can I just put in 2 adults only just to get the 3.5* and then call the hotel and ask for 2 beds? Or do they normally give 2 double beds ? Is it strick for HOTWIRE when I select 2 adults, do the hotel only expect just 2 adults, and won't allow additional children? I know PRICELINE only ask how many rooms and not number of persons. The amenities for the 3* in New Brunswick are: fitness center, pool, restaurant, business center, laundry facility and High speed internet. Thanks, Stan
  11. Hi, I went back to Hotwire and took out 2 children. It does show 3.5* for $69 in Edison/woodbridge area. Can you tell why they charge more for 2 children under 12? Thanks. Stan
  12. Hi, Sorry I don't see it. I used Woodbridge for Jul 13 thru 26, and it shows 3* for $52 in New Brunswick. Do you know what hotel this is? Then I used Edison for the same dates, and it showed the same thing. The 3.5* is $146 in Edison - woodbridge area. I don't see any 3.5* for $69. Thanks. Stan
  13. Hi Thereuare, I went to HOTWIRE and I use Edison as location. I did not see 3 1/2* for $69. Which location did you use? Thanks again. Stan
  14. Hi, I think my max bid would be $80. Thanks. Stan
  15. Hi, What are the hotels available for 3* hotels in Woodbridge/Edison area and what amount should I start my bidding with? Will I have less chance to get a hotel if I bid for 14 consecutive days? Do I need to break it up? If so how many days at a time? I would like to stay from July 13 through July 27. Thanks. Stan
  16. I am not sure, but the hotel website shows the property is to the east of the airport. Thanks for adding the hotel rate to the title. I tried to make the correction but I could not. Stan

  21. Thereuare, I had trouble getting online using my laptop from the hotel. Sunday I went to a coffee shop where I could use the internet. I started my bid at $55, then raised it to $60. Both bids were rejected (Sheraton web site still showed $89 for the night). $60 was the highest I was willing to go considering the cool weather and the forecast for thunderstorm for Monday. I was glad I did not get the additional night. Stan
  22. Last night I started to bid but like I said the bid was blocked. If last night 's bid did not count, then the last time I bidded was 3/23 at 10pm. Stan
  23. Hi, I just want to restate what I wrote in my posting of March 21. The 2 nights (3/26 & 3/27) that I booked, were done using the hotel points. I only had enough points for 2 nights and I would like to add an additional night at the same hotel. Last night I tried to increase my bid to $50 (3*, Atlantic Beach) (tax & service charge :$13.65), but the bid was blocked. I was asked to pick a different star or different date before the bid can go through. This left me with no option since I can't change the date and I don't want to pick a star lower than 3 (I already chose the 2 available locations: Atlantic Beach and Moorehead the night of March 23) because I might get a different hotel in Morrehead. Any suggestion is appreciated. Thereuare, If the title or heading needs to be changed please do it for me since I don't have any way of doing it myself. Thanks. Stan
  24. Thanks for your response. First bid at $45 for 3* Atlantic Beach. Rejected. Second bid at $48 adding Morehead City. Rejected. I noticed at the Sheraton web site that the rate for that night has been reduced from $99 to $89. I will try again tomorrow. Stan
