  1. Amenities: Remote control TV w/ premium channels Telephone w/ voicemail Radio Alarm Clock Iron and ironing board Hairdryer Business services 24 hour front desk Full Service Restaurant Room service Bellman Concierge Fitness center access In addition: walk literally across street to great shopping (Fashion Island) & great chain food (PF Changs & El Torrito) - walk 1,300 yards to the marina at Newport Beach and world famous Balboa Island - an excellent nearby restaurant recommendation is Sabatinos, 251 Shipyard Way, Newport Beach, CA (homemade spicy Italian sausage a must!!!) :) DON'T GIVE UP - I BID PRICELINE FOR SEVERAL WEEKS AT HIGHER BIDS BEFORE WINNING THIS ONE - summer is a very busy season around Surf City but hotel rooms are added as time goes forward and it's well worth the effort - even more so considering seasonal lodging rates are $250-$300 per room per night.
  2. If you like an ocean view and mild hills consider riding south on Pacific Coast Highway - PCH 1 - head to Corona Del Mar then Laguna Beach then Dana Point and back to your hotel in Newport Beach - end at Sabatino's (near Lido Aisle) for a cold beverage an the absolute best homemade fresh spicy Italian sausage in the world! :)
  3. Tremendous Hotwire win for very respected, serviced & maintained lodging 15 min drive from SJO airport - 15 min drive to San Jose Central - Spaniard ownership/property managment team - stayed there 2 years ago for the 2nd time in 15 years - staff young, intelligent and serviced with excellence for the most part - rooms were tight square footage wise - lively local music, dance and casino makes up for it though - hotel used to have scheduled bus service and promos to their sister property Playa Tambor in Guanacaste - not sure if it still runs or combo discounts avail but I highly reccomend both properties. Amenities: Casino - Fitness Center - Pool(s) - Restaurant(s) - Business Center - Tennis Nearby Happy Hunting! :)
  4. Just won same hotel on PRICELINE for $85 a night (before taxes/fees): 4/9 thru 4/12. This after multiple failed attempts to obtain Resort Marriott Diamond Head those dates. That said, having lived on Oahu we're very happy with the 4* Hawaii Prince. Central Waikiki beachfront marina location with very friendly staff, lots of local culture, awesome sunset views and a short 5-10 min walk to fantastic shopping and restuarants.
  5. Turned out to be Pineta Palace for $471 total -- I'm not happy considering the noise comments and questions regarding whether it's really a 4* :) :)
  6. 4-star hotel in Rome Northwest This hotel features the following amenities: Complimentary Breakfast Restaurant(s) :)
  7. Thanks TP. I was thinking the same about Red Lion but noticed once again that the star rating was incorrect on Hotwire (3.5 vs. 3.0) -- I was hoping it was The Davenport since amenities matched but that hotel truly is a 4* I'm going to pass on the Red Lion and the DT for my upcoming Spokane trip. Thanks again.

  9. This travel product is still ranked #1, or at the top, on several review sites and used to run $400-$500 just a short while back. Garmin GPS products also seem to have a strong third-party following which allows numerous international maps to be purchased and uploaded onto this device making it nice for traveling abroad.

  10. This isn't the greatest deal in the world but given that I've been bidding unsuccessfully on PRICELINE for (4) weeks now on a minivan for this summer's family trip back to the Midwest and the lowest advertised price has been $99 a day I'm going to be happy with what I received. :) Costs: $53 daily x (3) days = $159 + $43.75 taxes/fees = $202.75 TOTAL

  13. Here's a decent direct buy via Hotels.com and I also noticed that PRICELINE.com has this same price as a direct buy on their website too. The Marriott ($209 + taxes/fees) and Intercontinental ($180 + taxes/fees) have always been "the" places to stay in San Jose but over the years they've nearly doubled their prices (both use to be $100 per night consistently). I've been to the The Barcelo San Jose Palacio before and it's one of three 4* hotels in San Jose, Costa Rica (actually only ranked 3.5* by Hotels.com) and it's a great place to stay with large clean rooms and a nice pool. Here's what I paid: $117 per night for (4) nights = $468 + $76.72 in taxes/fees = $544.72 TOTAL Now with the money saved my fam and I will skip the hotel food and enjoy the finer restaurants in town! :)
  14. Per your request, here's the following (11) amenities Hotwire listed before I place my bid: -Resort -Beachfront -Casino -Fitness Center -Pool(s) -Restaurant(s) -Business Center -Laundry Facilities -High-speed Internet Access -Tennis Nearby -Children's Activity Program Hope this helps. Thnx.
  15. Just secured (2) rooms today on Hotwire at the Flamingo Beach Resort for (7) people to lodge 7/14/2008 - 7/17/2008. $59 per room, per night for (2) rooms for (3) nights total $415 ($354 plus taxes/fees of $61.12). :) I've stayed at this exact resort before and it's a very nice, well maintained smaller beachfront resort within 45 minutes of LIR airport and 20 minutes of the popular Playa Tamarindo and Playa Grande if you like to surf. This is a great place to start, or end, your vacation if you fly in and out of LIR in Liberia, Costa Rica. Here's the amenities which are drastically under described by Hotwire, forgive the fluff as this is the resort's description: :) * 120 guest rooms and suites, comfortable, air-conditioned, and well-appointed * Blue Flag ecological Flamingo Beach, ideal for swimming, surfing, snorkeling and sunset cruises * Abundant water sports, ranging from scuba diving to deep-sea fishing * Full-service tour desk, offering canopy tours, volcano expeditions, nature tours, and more * Onsite dining, serving everything from elegant, international cuisine to casual poolside dining * 4,195 square feet of event space, with flexible indoor and outdoor venues * High-speed Internet access * Guest privileges at two nearby championship golf courses, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and Mike Young, respectively * Onsite casino, featuring slot machines, roulette, and poker from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. * Expansive swimming pool, with pool volleyball, a swim-up bar, and leisure lounging * Fitness center, featuring modern equipment, sauna, changing rooms and showers * Beauty salon, offering spa services, including facials and therapeutic massages * Souvenir shop selling local mementos and last-minute items * Snorkeling and dive shop, a convenient place for underwater adventure supplies - THIS DIVE CREW IS PREFERRED BY MANY IN TAMARINDO * Children's center and covered pool, an indoor / outdoor playroom adjacent to the pool * Gaming area, providing hours of entertainment, including complimentary billiards and air hockey * Outdoor tennis court, lit for nighttime play * Room service, serving in-room dining from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
