  1. Thanks for replying. I had been reading for different neighbourhood. I guess I did not make my point clear, is there any areas other than Civic Centre would be considered sketchy/dangerous/unsafe, especially in the evening. That was indeed what I meant by Michigan Avenue/Water Tower Place, unlike the Loop, which pretty much a ghost town filled with houseless people after business hour. I have not seen much discussion on this, evening safety is of big concern as we do not drive and have heard that downtowns in US cities can be very dangerous (probably because of misperception) in the evening and sections of Chicago do give me that feel.

    By the way, would USD 100 be a reasonable starting bid price for a 3* hotel in Nob Hill or Union Square?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  2. Thanks for the information, especially on the hotel ratings between the two websites.

    I intend giving Priceline a try as the hotels listed on Hotwire seem to be on the much higher end (than what I usually paid for trips in the past). (The bus system in Vancouver and Richmond are both excellent. Any hotel in downtown core will be close to a bus line, that say as long as I do not get a hotel on Granville Island or City Hall area. I can work through it on city buses, especially I do not have much luggage on my way home, in the case if an airport hotel does not provide shuttle.)

    Please advice a strategy (and starting price) for bidding.


  3. I am new to Priceline and would appreciate any advices. Currently looking for 1 nights in Vancouver on 2-3 April, close to Vancouver Airport (I am en route back to school (in Chicago) after vacation at home (Asia), and shall have MANY luggages). I prefer something like 3 or 3.5 star (as long as I do not get Comfort Inn Airport) or above. I wonder if USD 85 per night (obviously the cheaper I could get the better) a good starting point to bid. Can I safely assume that airport area hotels WILL provide complementary shuttle? (I have to be at the airport at 5.30 am for early morning departure on 3 April.)


  4. Thanks thereuare for responding. I assumed Hotwire and Priceline have the same hotel ratings -- bought a 3 star hotel at the airport on Hotwire last summer and ended up with Comfort Inn with totally inacceptable service.

    My absolute maximum budget per night is USD 85 - 90, I prefer 3.5 star hotels or up. However, since hotels in Vancouver are more expensive than Toronto (seems to me as so), I would take 3 star hotels if necessary. For the 20-21 Mar stay, I would rather stay close to the airport, although anything in downtown core will also works. (Is it safe to assume all 3 star hotel around airport will provide complementary shuttle?) I am on my way flying home, and Air Canada does not provide hotel accomodation for overnight connections. I do not have much luggage on my way home, a downtown hotel will work as long as it is close to bus routes.

    Any advice will be appreciated. Can I post two stay simultaneously or I have to do so one-by-one? Thanks.


  5. I am new to Priceline and would appreciate any advices. Currently looking for 2 nights in Vancouver (20-21 Mar and 2-3 Apr), with the Mar. one in airport or downtown, and the Apr. one in airport. I prefer something like 3 or 3.5 star (as long as I do not get Comfort Inn Airport) or above. I wonder if USD 85 per night (obviously the cheaper I could get the better) a good starting point to bid. If anyone would suggest a bidding strategy, I greatly appreciate.
