  1. Booked using HOTWIRE link and 5% Hotwire Coupon. Got Hotel Chicago Downtown as expected. Thanks for all your help.
  2. Thank you thereuare and AaronJB both for your responses. I picked Hotel Chicago Downtown, Autograph Collection due to its location. The amenity list has changed so I'd like to confirm before booking: 4-star Hotel in River North area Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility. $72. 1 Room, 2 Adults, 1 Child Tue, Jul 02 - Thu, Jul 04 One question, it listed bed choice but I was not given bed selection. Should I expect the possibility of double occupancy even with Hotwire? Thanks again.

  4. I decided that walking distance to metro and choice of bed type are very important, which cannot be guaranteed with PL or HW, I ended up booking directly with Butterfly Hotel in Causeway Bay using the special discount for $100/ night tax included. Thanks for your help.
  5. Hi I am using Priceline LINK for Express Deal to Hong Kong from 3/31-4/6 for 3 rooms. 1. 5*- East Hong Kong Island-$119: Pool, Restaurant, Fitness, Airport Shuttle, Free Internet, Business Center. I researched but couldn't locate a 5* hotel in East Hong Kong Island, unless PL recently upgraded a Hotel in the area? The closest one I found is The Park Lane Hong Kong which is 4* on tripadvisor but listed as a 5* according to hotel's web site. Its regular rate is $199/night duering the listed dates 2. 4*-Kowloon Jordan- $118 Pool, Restaurant, Fitness, Airport Shuttle, Free Internet Eaton or Novotel on Nathan? Thanks
  6. 4* Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central Taipa/Coloane (Cotai Strip) - Macau Intl Airport MFM area Amenities: Smoke-free rooms Pool(s) Business center Internet access Accessibility: In-room accessibility Accessible parking Using HotWire link and $20 off coupon to off set some fee. Saving of $40 for 2 nights compared to regular booking sites.
  7. $79 for 1 night 3/27 using Hotwire LINK and Coupon WINTER20 to bring to cost of 3 rooms down to $274 after tax and fee. I was not sure if it's Crowne Plaze before purchasing since the amenities didn't have "Boutique hotel". Thanks for all the help I got from this board. Hotel Amenities: Airport shuttle Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Accessibility Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible parking Roll-in shower
  8. Sorry, I just went back to look for amenities but the deal is no longer there.
  9. I went ahead and bid 3 rooms 4* , 2 night, 4/1-4/3 starting at $65, $68, $71, $74 using all free bid zones, all bids were rejected. Ended up using Priceline.Express deal 5% off and got Inn at Laurel Point for $76/night ($80-5%) using Bidding.Helper Link. I tried to edit thread title to reflect my winning but was not able to do that. Thanks
  10. I bid $70 last night and was rejected, I didn't bid anymore because having additional zones really caught me by surprise. By the way, I did not see any 4* available in Priceline.Express last night, it's $89 4* this morning and now $81 with 5%. What should I do? Thanks
  11. I saw somewhere here that Victoria, BC only has 1 free bidding zone for 4* as I tried to bid 2 nights 4/1-4/3 couple nights ago but last night I saw 3 free bidding zones. Do you see the same thing?
  12. Have been bidding off and on in the past few weeks, always started at $65 and stopped at $71. The Hot.wire price has been fluctuating between 78-82 and Priceline.Express has been $82-$92. So I decided to started at $65 and went up by $2, got the hotel at $75 using the PRICELINE link from this site.
  13. Booked using HOTWIRE link for 3/29-4/02/13 4* Dupont Circle National Zoo, 95% guests recommended and got Omni Shoreham as expected. I did my own research using betterbidding so I just want to come back to post my result as a token of my appreciation for the site. Thanks Amenities include: Smoke Free Rooms Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center High-Speed Internet Access Spa Services Accessible for the deaf Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking
  14. Booked 3 rooms 3/3-3/5 $51/night using HOTWIRE link. Only three amenities listed: Pool, Business Center, Internet. Took a chance because it was 95% recommended by Hotwire users. I am very excited because this hotel got really good reviews from tripadvisor. Thanks for all the useful info I got from this board. I just wonder why Hotwire does not list all amenities that I saw from hotel's web site such as shuttle, pool and breakfast buffet? Does that mean I don't have access to those amenities?
  15. We have decided against going to Vancouver from Seattle for just one day after our cruise. Thanks
  16. Hi Yellowdog, I went back and added the response per your request. Sorry, I did not mean to ignore the request. As you can tell I have not logged-in for a long time after my last post so by the time I logged back on recently, I thought it was such an old news. I will make a habit of logging in when I am in here just in case I have a PM. Thanks for your help.
  17. Amenities: Smoke Free Rooms, Spa, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, High-speed Internet Access. I added amenities per forum monitor's request. I checked some recent posts regarding Sheraton Center, it seems that Sheraton Center does not have spa icon any more?
  18. I am trying to get 2 rooms. Please help identify the followings for 1 night 5/30-5/31: 2* North Vancouver-$49 Amenities: Pool, Tennis nearby. 3* North Vancouver-$73 Amenities: Boutique hotel, ocean front, fitness, restaurant, laundry, high speed internet. Thanks for your help.
  19. I am trying to book 9/11-9/13. Arlington Heights - Elk Grove area. 2.5* Amenities: Suite, complementary breakfast, fitness, kitchenette. My guess is Jameson Suites but previous report showed only breakfast and fitness. Thanks
  20. I am starting a new post per our forum monitor (thereuare)'s request. This is a continuation of Hotwire Toronto Sheraton thread. Thank you, I won't have to switch hotel any more.
  21. Thanks again. My Priceline instinct had me go back to look at several hotels' web sites around Sheraton for Thursday and the price is really high compared to the next two nights. I booked Super 8 in China Town, a basic and clean hotel which got good ratings from Trip Advisors for $59 for Thursday as my back up plan. I have until 4 p.m. of my arrival day to cancel. I will continue to keep an eye on Sheraton until then and I will report in a new thread. Thanks so much for your help. It's been exciting and educating for me as I learn something new. Life is crazy....Something happened as I was finishing this post...........Please see my new Toronto Sheraton :)
  22. I just booked 2 nights for $66/nite 3/27-3/29 at Sheraton Center Hotel using the HOTWIRE link. Thanks for the advise. Should I wait few more days to see if Sheraton comes up again?
  23. Yes I am trying to stay closer to $65 area. I can get Cambridge Suites Hotel now for $88 and Westin Harbour for around $55 (with a little bit of work but I kinda don't want to stay out there). I will make my decision in the next 2-3 days. Thanks for your help.
  24. No I don't have a strict budget. I like Sheraton because of its location, quality and price plus it connects to the PATH. We like to walk around at night w/ the baby so Westin Harbour could be a bit out and somewhat isolated (according to some comments on trip advisors). I am fairly experienced with priceline but I decided to go with hotwire this time (my first) because East and West zones are separate so the risk of getting something far from the center is far less than Priceline. I will continue to keep an eye on these hotels in the next couple of days. I appreciate any advice from you. Thanks for your help.
