  1. 1/30/10 $70

    $70.00 Winning Bid

    $16.85 Fees + Taxes

    $86.85 Total

    Opening bid $45 added the many free re-bid zones including one zone that also had resorts (zone 4)

    Jumped from $65 -rejected to $70-accepted based on historical winning bids. Internet price was listed between $189-$249.

    I understand this resort also will add parking and resort fees for approx. $30 extra upon arrival.

    1.5 miles from Disney maingate.

    Thanks BetterBidding, this forum always helps me get a great deal!

  2. 1st Bid....4* NMA $40 rejected

    2nd Bid...4* NMA and Loop $45 accepted.

    Although the Loop has 4*'s either location was ok with me but I was hoping to get the Hyatt! I would have started higher but as there have been several postings lately for $45 at the Hyatt - I thought I would try even lower just for kicks. Chicago in January, I wonder why this us a deal? ...brrrrr!

    www.betterbidding.com saves me $$ again!! thanks!

  3. Just wanted to post that this hotel FAR exceeded our expectations. The hotel is only about 4 years old, beautifully decorated and spotless. The rooms were very large and comfortable and the hotel is in a good location. They honored our requests.

    *This is a little after the fact - so please delete this post if it is inappropriate*

    Thanks again to this site for helping us with an affordable vacation.

  4. We are back, and I wanted to note that this property was fantastic. When we called to request a non-smoking room, my husband mentioned we were coming to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, which was true :) When we arrived they bumped us into a suite which included a huge sitting room and fantastic view! The property was newly renovated and nicely decorated. A great deal.

  5. I truly appreciate your responses and would love any recommendations for must try restaurants/coffee shops. This is my 2nd time to NY, I am traveling with my mom, aunt and my friend - all first timers. All of us love finding a place with fantastic food - regardless of the atmosphere. Also looking for a place to relax for a while after evening shows - something mellow where we can talk and people watch, maybe get dessert (within close proximity to the theaters). I don't know how you keep up with all of these posts!!! So any suggestions are appreciated.

    One thing I wanted to mention about the Westin: When I called to request a non-smoking room they were very friendly but indicated that because the room was purchased on priceline.com NO requests would be allowed into their "system". This is the first time I have run into this using priceline. It might be a new Westin policy because I found other posts indicating that specific requests were honored at this NY Westin.

  6. Bid $160 4* rejected, re-bid $170 accepted

    Your Offer Price: $170.00

    Number of Rooms: 1

    Number of Nights: 2

    Subtotal: $340.00

    Taxes & Service Fees: $58.45

    Total Charges: $398.45

    I have been attempting to book a room in this area for about a month with rejections up to $200 for 4* (MTW). Today hotwire.com had 4.5* for $209 for my dates. Given the description, it appeared to be this same hotel, so I thought I would try priceline.com (thru www.savingsbarn.com) first and am happy I did, given my winning bid. Thanks again to this site, I rely on the advice written here everytime I bid!

  7. I need 10/28 (thursday) - 10/30 (saturday). I have been playing around with bids for the last two weeks with hopes of getting something in the theater district for around $150. I have bid up to $160 for 4* and 3* in MTW, and up to $150 for 4* in central park and MTE. I have pretty much used up all of my bidding options today :) I am really familiar with the free zone rebidding practices and so forth - just surprised (and happy) to see a lower winning bid.

    Should I just chill out until the room blocks are released? When typically are they released (4 weeks prior?) I guess I am just too excited about my trip!
