  1. The Scottsdale Plaza Resort was excellent! The assistant general manager immediately sent me a letter that stated he would waive the charges. Hotwire responded a few days later and reversed everything. Thank you!
  2. Thanks! I will let you know.
  3. Hello friends, On February 17 2020, I bid (by using your link) a hotel on Hot Wire. I won the exact hotel your helper thought it would be - The Scotsdale Plaza Resort. The trip is for the end of April and I don't feel we should travel. But... more than the flying and hotel part is the fact that many restaurants, stores and attractions may not be open. I'd rather not take that chance. I cannot find good info regarding if Hotwire will refund my money and cancel the reservation due to Corona. It seems every other place is. Any info or suggestions? Thank you so much!
  4. Resort, Free internet, Boutique hotel, Indoor pool(s), Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Spa services It is the Little America. I used your link to find out the hotel prior to selecting the hotel. It was a match. Thanks for your help! Btw.... bidding 150 for the only 5 star in SLC was not accepted.
  5. That's a very good point. I didn't think of that. I am going to try once for the 5 star and then I will use PRICELINE EXPRESS. I will let you know what I get. Thanks
  6. Hello again! I am looking for a deal in Salt Lake City on December 27 for one night. I live here so I have been able to figure out a few of the Priceline Express and Hotwire listings Hotwire: $71 - Little America $66- Radisson $64 Crystal Inn 231 is Grand America. PL: 214- is Grand America 62 - Radisson Do you think I could do a little better by bidding? I skipped the properties around those prices that may include Hampton Inn. I don't want to stay there. Grand America would be great but not near that cost. Little America is the smallest motel type room. The Radisson doesn't have a bed type to choose. Or it's a queen and a King is preferred. All those places are ok unless I can do better. Better is always better! :) For this stay... 3.5 star up, Salt Lake City - Downtown - Temple- University, December 27 -28, Must have an indoor pool, please. Thank you
  7. I will be making reservations through Priceline for the Huntington Beach Hotel. Thank you, again, for your help.
  8. I would really like it to be under 200 a night. 150 would be super! Thanks
  9. Hi again, I am looking for a place in Huntington Beach from Friday 8/30 - Monday 9/2. This may be a difficult one. I really need to be walking distance to the pier and to Main Street. So, 10-15 minutes or so. The closer the better. (I was looking at Huntington Beach Inn and that area) I am not picky on stars only cleanliness. Any suggestions? Priceline or Hotwire. Thank you!
  10. I won't be wearing Padre's colors so hopefully it will be just the right amount of adventure! Thanks, again.
  11. I think Urban Boutique Hotel looks excellent! Thank you. How do I know that I won't get a room with a full bed?
  12. Hello again! I am looking to stay in San Diego on August 23 and 24, departing on the 25th. I would like to be close (15-20 minute walk or less than 10 minute drive) to Petco park, if possible. However, my main objective is cost savings. I am flexible with stars. I would like to be above 2.5 if possible...unless a low star is a good clean hotel. I am not concerned with amenities - a pool would be a bonus but is not needed. I know this is a long shot but... as close to $100 - $125 is my ideal rate. Suggestions? Thoughts? Thank you!
  13. AaronJB, Thank you. My budget would be 125 - 175. The $135 rate at the Residence Inn pleasently surprised me. I am going to look at the two hotels you have listed. If I recall, the Loews looked quite nice.
  14. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Route 1 in Saugus. I used a government rate as I am eligible for that.
  15. I am eligible for the government rate and used that.

  17. Hello again! I am looking to stay in San Diego from July 1 to July 5. Yup, I know it is a difficult time of year to get a deal. I am wanting to stay beach front/ bay area / marina area /gaslamp area. Also, Coronado Island would be great. It would have to be close to the water or on Coronado. I would prefer a 3.5 star and up. Maybe a 3 star. Currently I have: Marriott Gaslamp Residence Inn at 135 Marriott Bay at 167 Hilton Bay at 167 Hard Rock at 165 (this was great until I found out they have resort fees which I hate andit makes the room 110 more than the others.) The Residence Inn may be a great property with great services. What do you think? I would use Priceline or Hotwire. Thank you!
  18. With your advice.... I told Priceline that a hotel at 7.7/10 is not acceptable. They said they would talk to their travel partners and call me back. They did not call me back. In fact, they sent me a confirmation e-mail for the original property. I called them and was told my request for the same review rating would not be honored. They offered a full refund plus 20%. I was able to use the 20% as a credit or cash back. I choose cash back and used HOTWIRE for my stay in San Francisco. It worked out very nicely.
  19. Priceline contact me saying that Hotel Zelos is booked and that they must move my hotel to the Sir Francis Drake Hotel Union Square. The Sir Drake gets mixed reviews and a lot of the customers have some serious complaints. And it is rumored as haunted... as stupid as it sounds it doesn't make me want to jump at the chance to stay there. Any advice?
  20. I went with the 4 star south of market and you were correct - Hotel Zelos! Thank you so much for your help.
  21. The first link - 4 star Union Square West... Could that be a hotel other than Serrano? It looks like Priceline lists hotels that have resort fees and they do not list fees for this deal.
  22. I went with the Holiday Inn Express on Route 1 in Saugus. They had a rate pop up that was in the $80 range. Thanks for your help.
