  1. Sorry, its for 2/18 - 2/19. Its currently listed for $165.
  2. Any ideas? It is not listed on the hotel list.. Restaurant, Pool, Fitness, Spa, High-speed Internet, Golf nearby, Tennis, Business. Listed in Downtown - Harbor Island
  3. After 24 hours, I still had no confirmation, so I called their customer service number. The agent was really nice, she called me back within an hour and told me my reservation was confirmed @ the Monte Carlo. I can't wait to hit the tables! Thanks for all the help once again! =)
  4. thereuare>> I used your link and ended up booking 2 rooms at the Monte Carlo, for a grand total of $109. Last I checked, I have been assigned a reservation number, so should I assume that I got it? Thanks for all the help you guys, this forum is great !!
  5. Thanks for the help! It seems like I have plenty of choice for these dates, so I'm going to decide very carefully. $39 for the Luxor is a very tempting deal, thanks for letting me in on that. However, I've already stayed there on 2 occasions, and wouldn't mind paying a bit more for something different. Thereyouare >> I notice you mentioned the Monte Carlo for less than $50. Where did you access this rate?
  6. Sorry, its for one night on Dec 16-17. Its going for only $31 !!
  7. Any idea which hotel this is? Selected amenities include: Casino, Restaurant(s), Pool(s), Fitness Center, Spa Services, Golf Nearby.
  8. Can someone please explain to me the double the difference guarantee? Hotwire offered me the rate of $162 for both nights, but I found that Orbitz offered $100 for the first night and $111 for the second night. Hotwire took the average of both nights ($105.50) and refunded me double the difference, 4 * $56.50 = $226. That all works out fine for me but I was expecting a little more. Somewhere on this forum I read that Hotwire took the first (lowest) of a competing rate and refunded based on that rate, not on the average. Which is why in my case, I was expecting a refund of $162-$100=$62. That brings it to a total of 4 * $62 = $248. So why did Hotwire take the average instead?
  9. 4* on the strip but is NOT a customer favorite, matches the amenites of both NYNY and TI, do I assume that it is NYNY ? Dates are 5/20 - 5/22.
  10. The 4.5* hotel in question IS the Le Meridien. The Park Hyatt is a customer favorite and the Westin Century Plaza has a spa.
  11. Thereuare: I ended up booking the Beverly Hilton via Priceline at $85 a night. I am 99% sure that the hotel offered at Hotwire is the Hilton Checkers now. Reading the latest customer favorite review shows this: "I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was very cozy and comfortable, was extremely clean and very "spa" like, very luxurious. I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel for the price I received and only wished I had more time to partake of the hotel facilities, particularly the spa." Also, a previous review said something about the rooms having bathrobes, something Wilshire Grand does not offer. My 2 cents worth.
  12. I didn't select this hotel in the end. But just for the record, I am 85% sure it is the Hilton Checkers. 10% it is the Marriott, 5% it is Wilshire Grand. The 'customer favorite' link seems to suggest so. Go for it.
  13. thereuare, thanks so much for helping me with the hotel eliminations! I can pretty much strike out the Marriott Downtown because it has a full business centre. Which leaves the Wilshire Grand, and that hotel in my opinion, is NOT 4.5*. What makes it more frustrating for me is that Hotwire labels this hotel a 'customer favorite'.. I am considering taking the risk because I think the Hilton Checkers warrants it. We'll see .. I guess..
  14. This is a pretty lastminute bid: Sat 11/22 - Sun 11/23 4.5* Downtown LA - $77 Icons shown on Hotwire: Restaurant, Pool, Fitness Hilton Checkers on Hotwire vacation package: Restaurant, Pool, Fitness, Spa
  15. Hotwire shows a 4.5* in Downtown LA for $77 and I was just about to snap it up (I thought it was the Hilton Checkers) when I realized the amenity icons do not match the ones found in Hotwire's 'vacation packages' - it is short of one 'spa' icon. Does anyone have any idea which other hotel in downtown LA warrants a 4.5* rating other than the Hilton Checkers?
