  1. My guess is that this may have been the Crowne Plaza Northbrook.

    I'm very familiar with this area; I'd be happy to offer suggestions. How many people are in your party/how many rooms?

    Thank you for using the site's HOTWIRE or PRICELINE links to start your purchases and searches.

    Thanks for the offer Aaron. Taking my teenage daughter and some of her friends for a concert at the Rosemont on Saturday night June 2nd. In a perfect world I'd like the Aloft which has a nice vibe and is nearby but I'm not stuck on one area. We will also be going to Arlington Racetrack on Saturday afternoon so we're very flexible in terms of where we end up. Your thoughts are appreciated. Breakfast included would be a nice perk. Thanks again.

  2. Yes, this does happen from time to time... sometimes the user makes the first purchase and then when they go back for the second purchase the hotel is no longer shown... other times the same hotel is offered and they're able to pick-up the second room without any issues.

    There are a variety of reasons for this scenario, the first and most obvious is that the hotel only has one room available at the deeply discounted HOTWIRE rate (and in this scneario a 2nd room may not be available when trying to make the 2nd purchase). Another scenario may be that a hotel's own research shows that guests who purchase multiple rooms are more likely to leave the hotel as a group and therefore less likely to use in-house services such as an onsite restaurant, internet, room service, movies, etc, etc... therefore they may offer deep discounts only on solo room bookings since there is an increased chance they will make additional revenue from other services (whereas offering deep discounts on multiple rooms they may feel they're giving the room away cheap and won't see any additional revenue).

    If you'd like help trying to identify the property offered please let us know the details (star rating, city, zone, dates, room rate, amenities associated with the property) and we'll have a look.

    Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases.

    Let us know whatever you decide to do for this stay or if we can be of further help.

  3. Curious if anyone has ever seen this situation. I'm looking for a couple of rooms in Chicago for one night June 2nd. When I put in just one room I get offered a 3.5* hotel with 100% Hotwire recommendations (I think there are only two reviews) this hotel is not yet identified on this site. The problem is that when I put in two rooms the hotel is not offered. Can anyone advise why the hotel has this strategy? I'm thinking of buying one room and then going back and trying to buy another one but the obvious risks are a concern. Thanks for any insights you can offer.

    $59 per room per night

  4. I've got the 4* Hotel Mela @ $269 or the just opened 6 Columbus Circle for $302 (Both have REALLY small rooms and views are probably non existent) or the Embassy Suites in the financial district for $290 a night. All as back-ups. So i don't think I'm ready to bid $315 for an unknown. That is a really good price for te Affinia, very highly rated, thanks for the tip. If I bid for a HOTWIRE hotel I will certainly use the above mentioned link. Thanks again.
