Well I was tired of waiting and afraid that the price would only go up so I booked this hotel for $69. It did turn out to be Ballys which is fine for me. Location is good and rooms are larger. I did use the HOTWIRE link from this site. Thank you for all your help.
Thanks for the reply. Went back to look and the price has come down to $69. That's a good sign. The amenities are Casino, Fitness, Pool, Restaurant, Business center, High Speed internet, Golf nearby, and Tennis nearby.
I used HOTWIRE for a 4 star hotel in MTE for $139 and scored the Intercontinental The Barclay for this past Sat. night. It was on 48th St. between Park and Lex. I was very happy with this hotel. The room was not the largest but it had two double beds and was very comfortable. I would definately do this again. It is a non smoking hotel.
Need a post cruise room in Fort Lauderdale for 3/29 to 3/31. I saw a 2.5 star beach front hotel for $89. It has pool, resturant and business center. Any ideas what hotel this is? How bad could it be if it's on the beach, right?
Yes I tried Priceline several times. I bid up to $115 for MTW, MTE, UM-CPS 4* and 3*. I was trying to get the Park Central. That is going for less than $100 lately. I was rejected in all my bids. Then I went to Hotwire and saw MTE 4* for $116. Didnt bite right away. The next day I saw it again for $111 and I jumped on it. It turned out to be the Grand Hyatt which I thought it was. The reviews on this hotel have been very good lately. If you go back to last year the reviews are not so good. I think the renovations had alot to do with this. In any event, I am very happy with my purchase.
The Club Quarters is a small hotel on 45th between 5th and 6th. It is in a great location. It is a very clean and well kept hotel. The staff was great when I asked for a different room. The Loby was comfortable and pretty. The only downside is the size of the rooms. They were very small. There was one double bed so we asked for and received a rollaway cot. The bathroom was small but adaquate with all the amenities. The shower had good hot water. I got this room for $100 so I think I did alright. Oh yeah, one thing that I loved was that the windows opened so we could get fresh air. That is very important to me.
