  2. Thanks for the great sleuthing - much to my chagrin, I got sidetracked with family sports event viewing today and missed the cut off for cancelling my HI res without penalty - so there I'll be this time, which is fine, I stayed there once before and it suit the bill. Yes, I found your support page, which is great with links to all of the major travel sites - very helpful and makes BB a one stop website :) Kudos to you all for the great work you do - it's much appreciated.

  3. I've got a back up (which can be cancelled by tomorrow) at a decent rate for a Holiday Inn on West 31st street, but am still looking at some of the offerings via your HOTWIRE link and am intrigued by a couple. Any ideas what these might be? They're within my budget.

  7. It's not exactly downtown per se, but it'll do for our needs and a short stay. Won the Silver Cloud Stadium 9/12-9/14. Started bids using your PRICELINE link at $90 and added $5 increments until got Silver Cloud Stadium for $140. I'm a huge baseball fan and it's directly across from Safeco Field - although the Mariners won't be in town then (which is probably why I got it :) ) Claims to be close to the light rail which is good.

  8. I patiently worked my way through the entire suggested bid scheme (thank you for that!) but with no success. It's easier when I know I have a friend's couch as a back up. When I got to the $185 bid though, I got an offer asking me to increase my bid by $74 to $259 and there would be a 'very good' chance that a bid of that amount would be accepted. Needless to say I declined. Continued on up through $198 with no luck. I'll give it a couple of more tries before I relegate myself to the couch :)

  9. Hi - I was wondering if you would be able to propose a bidding strategy for a stay in NYC from 6/8-12? I'm interested in a 4* in MTE,ESB,Chelsea,MTW,CPS or MSG and would like to give a go for max room rate of $190 plus fees. I know it's a tough time, so I may end up bringing it down to 3.5* or 3*. Thanks very much!

  10. Thanks. You're right - there seem to have been quite a few changes recently, even just in NYC judging from my current search. For instance, in addition to what you mention about the 5* in ESB, they now seem to offer 4 1/2* AND 5* options in the CPS, Downtown, MTE, TSQ and UES zones. I think I remember seeing a 5* option on TSQ a while ago, but the rest of the zones on the 5* list are all a first time appearance for me. I wonder if these are new properties or if Pricleine is re-rating a bunch of existing properites suddenly? The only 5* on the BB list in Manhattan that I could see was for the Waldorf Towers. And I saw no 4 1/2* properties listed on the BB list for NYC. I'd be curious to find out what these properties are - but only curious up to a certain price :)

  11. I have stayed at the Verve in LIC and it's a very clean, well run property, close to the elevated and 'regular' subway lines and a short ride to Manhattan. The neighborhood seemed to be safe BUT it's semi industrial/residential and parts of it are somewhat desolate at night which might be a bit disconcerting. If it's your first trip to New York and you want to experience a lot of the things you mention in your first post, I'd try to get a place in Manhattan for the convenience and the first time experience of the city. When you're an old timer like me, you can save a few bucks by staying in Manhattan 'adjacent' :D

  12. Don't know if this was proper place to post (please feel free to delete or move if not) - but the hotel was very nice. However, if there were such a thing as a 3.75* hotel, I think I'd give it that as opposed to 4*. Compared to the other 4* hotels I've stayed at in NYC it's just slightly below, overall. Great staff, wonderful old NY feeling to lobby, rooms on the small side.
