  1. If you see “free breakfast” in the list of amenities, stay away! This property is vastly overrated (by Expedia and its affiliates), no better than a Motel 6 except with musty rooms. Realistically, one star or maximum two. Hotwire no bargain either — final price with fees equal or higher than walk-up rate. No airport shuttle either (property is a few blocks from Jamaica Station). Very disappointed. Other listed amenities: free parking, free internet, bed choice.
  2. Complimentary: Free Internet Amenities: Airport shuttleBusiness centerFitness centerPet friendlyPool(s)Restaurant(s)Smoke-free rooms. $130 all in.
  3. Amenities: Free Internet (in Room) Spa Shuttle Non-Smoking Gym Restaurant Handicap Accessible Business Center $204 all in: a decent deal, but no significant savings. Was hoping for Hilton or Sheraton. Tried bidding up to $145, but kept getting counteroffers of $174.
  4. $149.97 after taxes and junk fees. Bid $99 on PL, got a counter for $127. Went to PLEx w/o rebidding. amenities: Free InternetFree ParkingFree BreakfastAirport Shuttle Business CenterFitness CenterNon Smoking
  5. Free Internet Business Center Fitness Center Non Smoking Restaurant Swimming Pool bid at $49 and $54. After that, used the 5% Priceline Coupon for PRICELINE EXPRESS deals.
  6. Complimentary Free InternetFree parking Amenities Business centerFitness centerPool(s)Restaurant(s)Smoke-free roomsSpa services Excellent property and price for long airport layover. Former Moevenpick, though I read a bit tired. Final price $64.94
  7. Final cost $76. (Hotwire showed what I believe is the same property for $66 base). I've stayed before when it was the Moevenpick. Very convenient to airport for long layover. I read that it could stand renovation, but very satisfaction property and price for my purpose.
  8. Amenities: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry,Internet access Accessibility: Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom
  9. €60 after fees (does not include $8 city tax collected at hotel). Excellent price for a very good property for non-weekend stay. Was not posted as available until almost midnight prior to check-in. Already on hotel list, usual amenities. Giveaway to identity is the "90% recommend" (most 4 star hotels in central Brussels on HW and PL are older properties with spottier results) Amenities Free Internet Pet friendly Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry
  10. final price $67.63, but does not include resort fee disclosed by HOTWIRE of $8.73/pp amenities: Free Internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access
  11. Did my research, got expected property. PRICELINE had for $55 so I bid $50 and was accepted.
  12. w/ the fees, final price was w/in $10 of booking directly. However, as a result of prior poor experience w/ Hot.wire I had $50 credit (Hotdollars) to burn. Free Internet Airport shuttle Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Accessibility Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Accessible parking Roll-in shower
  13. Disputed the charge with credit card (Fidelity Amex, administered by Citicard), who would do NOTHING for me, citing that I had checked in rather than walk away. I then filed a complaint w/ BBB of San Francisco. Hotwire immediately offered me a $25 credit for misrating + another $25 credit for condition of property. They also advised that they had re-rated property from 3.5 stars to 2 stars. I accepted the offer.
  14. This property is rated 2 stars by Expe.dia and can be booked directly for $20 cheaper than the Hot.wire rate. It might be 2 stars, were it not in deplorable condition. It has a 2.4 (out of 5) customer rating, and that is as a 2 star. The hotel rates itself as 2 stars. Based on this misclassification, I asked Hotwire for a refund. They refused, claiming that they start with the Expedia rating and adjust based on customer feedback. So much for Hotwire customer service. This is outright fraud. I am now disputing the charge on my credit card.
  15. Deira - Dubai Airport (DXB) area Hotel Amenities Free parking Fitness center Pool(s) Business center Internet access
  16. Was hoping for a better property. Not well-reviewed on Tripadvisor. With the added fees, actually more expensive than booking directly. Warning: do not choose 3.5* hotel in this zone.
  17. Rather disappointed in this "win." This property not on previous 3.5 star list, and I would consider this a 3 star property max.
  18. Full list of amenities: Free Parking Free Internet Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Self service laundry Internet access Tennis Nearby
  19. A clue to identifying this property is amenity "free internet" (as opposed to "internet access") Low price probably reflects that stay is during Ramadan. oops, forgot to use BB link.
  20. Not displeased, but hoped to do better. Final price was same as direct booking prepaid rate.
  21. Rejected @ $68. Was hoping for / expected Country Inn because of better breakfast, but this property acceptable. Total for 3 night wknd stay $248. PRICELINE EXPRESS deal for 3* was $260. Regular wknd rate $104 +$11 tax
  22. Rejected at $18. Mid-size for $21 also rejected. Very good value for overpriced market.
  23. Amenities: Suite Airport Shuttle Complimentary Breakfast Fitness CenterPool(s )Restaurant(s) Business Center Laundry Facilities (self-service) looks like this property has been upgraded from 3*. Fairly easy to guess from first word in amenities.
  24. amenities: Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) High-Speed Internet Access
