  1. It would appear from this board there only two 4* hotels in the Downtown area, the Monaco and Renaissance. I started my bid at $75 and added two other areas at $85 and was accepted at $95. Had bid same amounts on 8/18/13 and was denied. I am happy with my win. Used the above PRICELINE link to bid.
  2. I checked MY ACCOUNT and it does list Tennis nearby, however Tennis did not show as an amenitie on the original booking screen. Self-parking at Avia is $16. I always use the above links to shop and book.
  3. Got Avia Savannah for three nights at $111, total price $391.63. Amenities: Botique, Smoke Free, Fitness Center, Pools, Restaurant, Business Center,High Speed Intenet & Golf nearby. Trip Advisor rating 4.5/5. After reviewing this board, I was fairly sure it was Avia because Avia is the only 4* listed as a Botique. Thanks for your help.
  4. This works great. Do you have to become a Club member for $49.99 a year in order to book a hotel on Last Min. Travel?
  5. Yes, this property has a Hi-Speed Internet icon, sorry I missed that. The property was very nice but the corner room I was given was very small and no place to put your luggage. They claimed they only have one room per floor with two beds. At check in I was given a card for 25% off food in the restaurant as long as it was charged to the room. Vallet parking was $36 but I parked in a structure directly across the street for $28.
  6. Se San Diego looks like a brand new luxury hotel with web site rates of $229/night. Amenities: Boutique Hotel, Smoke Free Rooms, Pool(s), Restaurants(s), fitness center, business center & SPA. I quessed this was the Se because the only other 4.5* hotel listed on HOTWIRE was the Andaz (Ivy) which did not list a spa. The $119 rate is great as I am staying tomorrow night. Used the above HOTWIRE link to book.
  7. First bid of $48 accepted. Only staying one night. I expected to get Crowne Plaza or Radisson as I had not seen anyone get Marriott LAX for a while. Used above PRICELINE link to bid.
  8. First bid accepted at $79 for two nights, total charges $191.32. I have stayed at Parc 55 before and like this property. Used the above PRICELINE link.
  9. Accepted $42 on first bid. What I expected after reviewing this board. Used above PRICELINE link.
  10. Hotwire shows non-smoking, continental breakfast & internet. Trip Advisor rating 4 out of 5. I could not find any 2 1/2 * listed for this area. Maybe I should try Japantown area?
  11. I decided to bid on PRICELINE and used the above link. I am now only staying two nights 6/12 and 6/13/09. I got the 4* Westin Seattle Downtown Pike Place for $95 per night plus taxes & fees of $37.24 for a total of $227.24. I first bid $85, then bid $92 and finally $95 which was accepted. I am happy with this location and I am not taking a car so I will not have to pay for parking. I appreciate all the help I get from this Board. Thanks to all the posters.
  12. HOTWIRE is showing a 3* for $79 with amenities smoke free, business center, fitness, restaurant and internet. I am quessing this is the Red Lion on 5th which is where I would like to stay. However I don't find that anyone has gotten the Red Lion on 5th on Hotwire recently. There is also a 3 1/2* for $93 which shows smoke free which I think is the Renaissance. Maybe I should just bid on PRICELINE. What do you think?
  13. I believe the Nike Women's Marathon takes place in San Francisco on 10/19/2008 and this event is attended by thousands of women from around the country. I have been in San Francisco on this week-end the past two years and the event planners reserve so many hotels it is hard to get a room at a good rate. I don't know if this effects the dates you want.
  14. The amenities listed for the Sheraton (Greater Downtown) Denver are: fitness center, restaurants, laundry facilities, pools, business center, internet & GOLF nearby. I believe none of the other 3 1/2* Denver hotels list golf nearby. This is a great location near the 16th Street pedestrian mall & the convention center.
  15. I originally bid on Pric.eline for a 4* downtown Denver hotel with no luck going from $69 up to $95 with free bids. So I went to HOTWIRE and they listed the Sheraton (formerly the Adam's Mark) for $69 per night. I knew it was the Sheraton as the amenties listed golf nearby. Best price for this hotel on their web site is $179 per night. I used the above PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links for bidding.
  16. First bid of $100 accepted for a 4* downtown at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter. Staying one night on 7/9/2008. Price listed on Hilton & other web sites at $269 for same night. Used above PRICELINE link. Total price $120.99. Happy with selection.
  17. Originally bid for a Resort in all desert areas up to $82. Rebid for a 3* in Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells and $75 offer accepted. Would have preferred Embassy Suites in Palm Desert but La Quinta OK. Includes breakfast and I don't believe there is a resort fee add on. Price $75 + tax & fee $16.72. There was a 4* listed at Palm Springs Airport but system did not have a place to bid on a 4*.
  18. Yes, I have a back up to stay at Parc 55. When I checked Quickbook the Argent was no longer showing up at the rate you got. Thank you for all your help. Hopefully I will have better luck next time.
  19. I tried again for a 4* in both USW & USE & Boutique going up to $170 with no luck. Changed to 3* in same areas & bid $150 but still rejected. I thought I might get 3* Marriott Courtyard downtown as it showed up on lastminute.com for $199. Can I rebid in 24 hours or should I just give up because all rooms are booked?
  20. I am new at this. I bid USW $88 & rejected. Added USE & re-bid $96 & rejected. Added Boutique & re-bid $105 & rejected. I wanted to get Parc 55 or Marriott. I think there is a marthon going on that week-end. Should I go to Hotwire or wait & start over? I am willing to go to $125.
