  6. Unsuccessful on priceline bids. Checked out Hotwire again and saw that the Downtown West property was no longer available. Booked the Entertainment District property with the same amenities listed above, and as predicted, was the Westin Grand Vancouver for $156/night using the HOTWIRE link. Thank you!
  7. I bid up to $125 in both zones separately. At this point, I am open to the least expensive 4* in either zone and would be willing to raise the max bid if necessary.

  20. The Omni might be too far from where I wanted to be, but I'll keep it in mind as a back up in case things don't work out. I think I'd like to try bidding separately for a 3.5* in the Downtown Disney area with a max of $100. I'm having second thoughts about booking a resort and paying the associated fees if I'm not planning on spending a lot of time within the resort.
  21. If it's the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, I think that will fit our needs. What do I need to do to book.
