Goin' to L.A. for playoff basketball in a few days... I want to stay within walking distance of Staples. Ideally, I want to stay at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, but I don't want to pay $180 per night. What does that leave me with? I just checked HOTWIRE, and it doesn't show ANYTHING for downtown L.A. Why? On PRICELINE, I'm getting only 4 hotels between 3-4 stars. The Westin, Hilton Checkers, Millenium and Kyoto. Location-wise, I'm fine with all of them. Price-wise, they range from $206-$382. What are the chances I can get something under $100? I remember when the Priceline and Hotwire Calendar of Wins would show 6-7 wins per night. Now? Barely one per night. What's up with that? Because of this, I'm having a hard time gauging prices. I'll be happy with any of these under $100, but do they fall in that range? I remember in the past they have. Secondly, if I can't get anything in that range... I think I'd rather get the W in Hollywood. Doesn't that go for $100 for the most part? Priceline shows $339 for that night... is that typical? Is it typical for the retail price on Priceline to be $339, and people still get it for $100 or so? Thanks.
