  11. We stayed here for a couple of nights for the proximity to downtown and the JFK museum. This hotel is big and hosts many conventions and events. There was a line during our check-in, we had to wait. That was not a big deal but the front desk was in such a hurry to check everyone in that it felt very impersonal and more like we were in a conveyor line. Definitely not the same Hyatt we experienced elsewhere. The location was hard to find when driving by car because it is at the intersection of several major highways in downtown Dallas. You have to navigate through some off ramps and on ramps if you are getting off one of the highway exits. Luckily we had a Garmin GPS and that helped tremendously. This hotel is part of the Reunion Tower and Arena complex. It looks modern on the outside but the room's were a little dated circa the 1980's. It reminds me of the Hotel Pennsylvania in NYC. The bathroom was small, old manual thermostat, old clunky 27" TV, old carpeting, and the gym had old equipment w/o AC. We had a Priceline reservation, they might have given us a dated room but I have a feeling all the rooms are the same. There is a big parking lot on the premise of the hotel but they restrict it for valet parking only at an unreasonable price of $20/day. We saved money by parking a block away (albeit down a small incline) at Reunion Blvd West for $10/day or less if you park by the hour. It's called Ace Parking which is directly to the left of the hotel. There is an attendant there 24/7, no in/out access but you don't have to deal with the busy valet. We were there when they honored Ross Perot one night and the hotel was more crowded and the valet was a giant mess. It looked like midtown Manhattan gridlock, we were glad we did self-parking. The Reunion Tower and restaurant is closed until at least Dec 08 for renovations. If you get a good deal for this place, it's not bad because of the location but otherwise I would stay elsewhere. Pro's: Location (within walking distance to JFK museum and the West End area) Con's: Dated rooms Impersonal staff Old equipment at Gym Ripoff for Valet Hard to find by car without GPS

  14. Whatever you do, don't bid on 3* for Downtown Vancouver because you might end up getting the Plaza 500 Hotel on PL. It's neither a 3* hotel nor in Downtown Vancouver. I've complained to PL about it to no avail. :)
  15. Started bidding at $75, and added $5 every 24-hr interval. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: US$110.00 Subtotal: US$330.00 Taxes & Service Fees: US$54.34 Total Charges: US$384.34
  16. Sorry, Cancun is the correct location. And when I click on My Account -> Hotel - See Details, I only see those 8 amenities listed in the pop up window. Bid was placed a couple of days ago so I don't remember if there were more.
  17. Wouldn't be able to get this great deal without the help and tips from this site. My wife and I were planning to stay at an all-inclusive resort but with the price we saved, we can dine out at a nice place every night. Listed as 4.5* on Hotwire but 4* everywhere else, doesn't bother us at all. 1 room(s) @ PricePerNight:$76.00 per night x NumberOfNights:5 night(s) SubTotal:$380.00 Tax recovery charge and fees:$51.50 Total $431.50 Amenities Include: Resort, Beachfront, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Tennis Nearby, Spa Services, Children's Activity Program

Thanks for any help.

  20. Just came back from a 2 night stay. Paid $90/night on Priceline for a 3* hotel in the downtown area, neither was this hotel a 3* hotel nor was it in downtown Vancouver. I would avoid bidding for a 3* hotel on PL just so I don't end up here. I would pay more to stay in a 2* hotel. This hotel is due for a major renovation like Cambie Street outside. The rooms are very outdated, cheap beds, ancient thermostat with manual/ancient A/C unit, cheap lighting, tiny elevators, tight corridors, and hot/humid hallways due to no central air. If you have a car, you'll drive 20 mins to reach downtown. If you're walking, good luck. Also if you have a car, do not park in their $20 per day parking lot. There are plenty of meter parking 1 or 2 blocks away from the hotel that allows you to park for free after 8 or 9 pm. Granted you move your car or pay the meter before 8 or 9 am the next morning. Pro: Only stayed 2 nights The White Spot and Safeway supermarket across the street Proximity to Cambie Street & Broadway w/Plenty of shops and restaurants Cons: Overpriced parking 2 elevators for a 18 floor hotel Old rooms Small bathroom Cheap beds Old A/C unit No central A/C And Nowhere near downtown
