  3. Thanks for the tip, I've updated the amenities!
  4. Need to be relatively certain that I'm booking the Westin as I already have rooms booked there through work and I'm getting the following. What's the likelihood this is the Westin? Thanks for your help!! 3/16-3/19 4* Las Vegas North Strip $62/nt Resort Fee: $19.95 75% Recommended FULL AMENITIES: Free Parking, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Casino, Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Internet access, Golf Nearby, Spa Services, Accessible for the blind, Accessible for the deaf, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Handicapped parking, Roll-in shower
  5. Looks like the amenities changed, I was expecting the Hilton or the Intercontinental Amenities: Restaurant, Fitness, Hi-Speed Internet, Business
  6. Bid USE + USW $82 rejected. Rebid $89 accepted.
  7. Initial Bid: $77 Added Airport: $82 Added Nellis: $92 Added UNLV: $102 Accepted
  8. I'm not totally thrilled with this one. The hotel looks nice, but in retrospect I think I went too high. You can book a room on the hotel's website for $120/nt. Sanlitun is the only area to offer a 5* so that gives you 3 re-bid zones for Beijing. US Starting Bid: 5* Sanlitun $72 Add Zone: $77 Add Zone: $82 Add Zone: $87 Rejected Switched to www.priceline.com.sg SG Starting Bid: $92/S$150 $97/S$160 $103/S$170 $106/S$175 $109/S$180 $112/S$185 ACCEPTED
  9. Had to use www.priceline.com.sg for this one, the US site doesn't offer bidding on Macau. I knew the Holiday Inn was the likely bet and on ichotels.com, they had the rate listed as HK504/$64 per night. SG$ Starting Bid: $42/S$70 $46/S$75 $49/S$80 $52/S$85 ACCEPTED
  10. Pretty sure I would get the Sheraton on this one. spg.com has it at HK1150/$149 per night. Note that you don't want to use Central Kowloon as a re-bid zone. West HK has JW Marriot as a 5* as well, but I didn't mind if they gave me that. I started on the US Priceline site: US Starting Bid: $62 Add West HK: $67 Add East HK: $72 Switched over to priceline.com.sg for free re-bids SG Starting Bid: $77/S$127 $82/S$135 $90/S$148 $97/S$160 $103/S$170 $109/S$180 $115/S$190 $121/S$200 FAILED decided to go back to the US site and got it on my first try back: US: $122 ACCEPTED
  11. Thanks for the tip, I thought they might be the same, both sites look identical. Does anybody have any idea if they use the same inventory as the US site? I'm just wondering if you might get a better deal using the SG and HK sites particularly for Asia. I did notice there are more asian destinations to choose from. For example you can bid Guangzhou, which is not available on the US site.
  12. Just got back from my stay at the Radisson Hill country Resort. It was very nice. The hotel is very new and the service was excellent. Everyone very friendly and accomodating. Great location for Sea World, and about a 7min drive to downtown. Would definately stay there again.
  13. Yes they called it a 4* in the Central bid zone.
  14. I decided to try www.priceline.com.sg since they allow free rebids for only S$5 increase in price. Zurich, Switzerland 2/14/05 - 2/15/05 Zone: 4* Downtown I bid S$70 (US$42) Rejected I bid S$87 (US$52) Rejected I bid S$103 (US$62) Rejected I bid S$120 (US$72) Rejected I bid S$136 (US$82) Rejected I bid S$153 (US$92) Accepted They gave me the Hilton in Glattbrug near the Airport! I immediately emailed them explaining that there was no way this hotel could be considered downtown. They replied in 24 hrs saying that I was correct and a computer error caused this to happen. They offered me a discounted price and to refund the S$16 processing fee. I wrote them back and said I wouldn't stay there at any price since it's Valenties Day and I'm only there for one night. They offered me the Intercontinental downtown for S$186/nt (US$112) and waived the S$16 processing fee. I accepted that. Overall, I think using priceline Singapore is good a good option, since you get the free rebids, the customer service was quite good. Just make sure you have a couple of days to rectify a problem or a backup plan if something goes awry. Priceline Hong Kong www.priceline.com.hk is another option I plan to try for a China trip I have coming up, I'll post my results.
  15. I need a room in a 5* in Milan on February 12, 2005. I've seen posts for the Le Meridien Gallia for $125. I've been bidding and re bidding the last couple of weeks starting at $100 and I'm up to $150 now. Am I bidding too early? Would it be better to wait a month or two? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  16. West is the only are with Resorts, so this one was pretty easy. I started at $47, rejected added zone and bid $52, rejected added zone and bid $56, rejected added zone and bid $59, rejected added zone and bid $62, accepted I was hoping for the Hyatt Resort, but the Radisson will do nicely especially for the price!
  17. We actually did try the happy hour at Brasa and loved it! Thanks! I highly recommend the Hummus plate.
  18. No time to rebid, so it might be a little high, but I wanted to make sure we got a 4* downtown. Still not bad, the best rate I could find elsewhere was $165/nt on Orbitz.
  19. Bid - $26 for Luxury, SUV, Convertible all declined First bid for Mid-Size at $17 was accepted. I probably should have started lower, but I had no time for a re-bid on this one.
  20. When I arrived at the National counter, they allowed me to upgrade my Minivan (See my previous post) to an SUV for $6 extra, $36 total. I previously bid $35 unsucsessfully for an SUV. That leads me to beleive that $36 was the lowest price for the SUV. Guess it doesn't hurt to ask if you want a different type of car at the lowest priceline cost.
  21. No dice on this one, not even a counter offer. Found a good deal on the Sofitel Hyland for $85 a night on placestostay.com. I think I'll settle for that one and live to bid priceline another day.
  22. The Sheraton is a great place to stay in HK, and a great location. Be sure to visit the Lounge on the top floor, best view in Hong Kong. Well, with one exception, the restrooms in the Felix Restaraunt in the top of the Peninsula Hotel next door!
  23. Thanks for the welcome! Great forum, keep up the good work!
