  2. This hotel needs to be added to your list. Frankly, I'm surprised to see Super 8 be a 2.5 * hotel, but perhaps they've improved since I last stayed at one. It has a 95% approval rate, so hopefully it will be nice :)
  3. Free Parking, Pet Friendly, Fitness Center, Pools, Restaurants, Business Center, Self Service Laundry, Internet Accessibility Are the amenities. Still the same dates.
  4. I'm looking for a room, possibly from 9/28 to 10/1. There's a 3.5 * hotel in Fountain Hills, but it says Pet friendly and the one on the hotel list is NOT pet friendly. Ideas?
  5. Bid up from 50, was told I could get it for 62, so came back today and bid 60 and was successful. There is a resort fee attached, but as of yet I am not sure what that amount is.
  6. Hmm, it's an interesting way to look at it I guess, but to me the value is lost if the transaction takes so long that the deal disappears while I'm trying to figure out what it is. Since it has, this is now a moot point.
  7. Hmm....ok. So, in the past, I have asked questions and then gone on to purchase using the links you provide so that you can be sure to get something for the service you provide. But I can't recall ever having to come here to do the initial searches, and then click on both links to PRICELINE AND HOTWIRE even though I'm only interested in one of them and I already have the information at hand? (those are the both links I see) even though I already have the information that I was asking about. Has the procedure changed in this way? I'm a little confused.
  8. I'm looking at a room next weekend in North scotsdale that has the following amentiies: Resort Pet friendly Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Self service laundry Internet access Golf Nearby The only hotel listed is the Orange Tree Golf Resort, but that property does not appear to be pet friendly. Any guesses?
  9. This is the Holiday Inn Express, which is not even listed on the list, so it's another to add to the list! Sadly, I was gambling that it would be the La Quinta, as listed in that zone. Now I have to eat this because they don't allow pets, but that's what I get for gambling that it would be La Quinta! Thanks!

  12. Ok, so I went ahead and booked via Hotwire, and it was indeed the Intercontinental. Interestingly, I was about to purchase this for 164, when I noticed I had left it as 2 adults only. It usually doesn't usually matter with such a small child, but I went back and decided to input 2 adults and one child to make sure it wasn't going to drastically change the prices I got. Lo and behold it was now 159! Thought that was kind of funny! Oh and not sure where to best put this, but this is a pretty cool site I found that might help other travellers with their parking while in Boston: http://boston.bestparking.com/index.php#1
  13. Yeah, as I mentioned in my original post, I am really tempted to just HOTWIRE the Intercontinental (or Langham as the case might be) and be done with it. (I have ALWAYS had a good experience at Intercontinentals, so that's a strong pull.) But, my budget conscious side has kept me from going that route yet, in the event that I can get something slightly cheaper on PRICELINE. So far, that seems like it's not going to be the case for this trip, though. I also like that if I go the HOTWIRE route, I can make sure the property has a pool. While not imperitive, pools are a nice option when travelling with a child! I'll continue to weigh my options I guess and see how things develop. The HOTWIRE price is already 5 dollars more now than it was the other day, so I probably don't want to stall for too much longer! Thanks again for your assistance!
  14. Thereuare, Yes, it might. I had considered that area, though I wasn't sure about some of the reviews combined with whether or not it would be in the area we most wanted to be in. I might give it a try, just to see. Also, I noticed that the Omni House reservation was made way back in February....so perhaps I'm not likely to get that hotel now anyway.... Perhaps that zone would be safe to bid after all. Ah the thrill of the gamble! Thanks for your help!
  15. Thereuare, I bid all the zones without a 4 star, and bid both waterfront locations that did have 4 stars. The hotel is the Omni Parker House, which the calender of wins shows as having been won for that weekend.
  16. It looks like I'm going to be needing a hotel room in Boston, on Memorial weekend. I notice that there is a 4* win that weekend for a great $86, but when I read reviews, people stress that rooms are small and that it seems most, if not all priceline people receive a double bed. This room will need to accomodate 2 adults and a 3 year old, so a double bed will not really fit that bill. I have bid all the way up to $125 before I ran out of free rebids, but I did NOT include the quincy/financial area because I am afraid to win that hotel, if it really won't fit our needs. If I go much higher, I will likley just switch to Hotwire and get the Intercontinental, because they are awesome, but it's currently listing at 163 and I'd rather stay closer to 100. Right now I've been concentrating on the waterfront areas, since I saw a couple of people had some luck there on the friday night. Anyway, just posting on the offchance anyone has any great ideas of how to finagle this, without ending up with a tiny double bed.
  17. Yeah, I wasn't that surprised since pretty much all resorts do it, but just wanted to let other know if they use my win as a guide. Btw, I did use the PRICELINE link to start that bid, does it not show that?
  18. Was surprised to win Scottsdale Resort And Conference Center for $65 a night. It is also important to note that they charge a fairly steep $19 resort fee on top of that, though. Decribing what the fee goes for, from their website: For your convenience, a daily resort fee of $19.00 is added to your room account and includes the following resort services: wireless internet access, fitness center fees, overnight parking, lobby coffee bar (6am - 10am,) complimentary printing of boarding passes, unlimited local and 800 telephone calls, newspaper delivered Monday through Saturday, incoming facsimiles, 1 hour tennis court time including racquet and tennis ball rental, 2 hour resort bicycle rental and postage for postcards and letters. All reservations are subject to room tax.
  19. I bid from 65 up and finally won a room at the Hotel Monaco for 2/2 through 2/4 for $75 Total with Taxes, 180.44.
  20. I just bid for and received one night at the Marriot Pinnacle in Vancouver for $62.
  21. I just won one night for $80 at the Sheraton downtown. (with all the taxes and fees it is closer to $100, fyi)
