  1. The Swan has a resort fee of $31.50. Resort fees are fairly common in Orlando and more and more hotels are charging for parking. Full price bookings are charged the same resort fee and optional fees on top of regular rate. Regular rate for the Swan for these dates on Expedia is $246, so a pretty fantastic savings.

    WDW resort 12/21-12/22

    If BiddingHelper.com shows no guaranteed hotels that does not necessarily mean a Disney property. On PRICELINE EXPRESS, I'm seeing (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the links below.) 3* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $88 Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool >>>Best guess would be Disney's Pop Century Resort. 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $74 Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool >>>Best guess would be the Hilton Bonnet Creek. For the HOTWIRE listings: I think there may be more amenities than you have included above. If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper tool and look in the EASY VIEW TAB then click the green "Full Amenities" button, do you see additional amenities beyond those listed above? If so, please confirm the full amenity set and we would be happy to take a look. Additionally, are you searching for more than 2 adults? Results may vary depending on the amount of people indicated. Let us know more about what you are looking for (Disney property/a particular Disney property?) and your desired budget per night and we can also research listings and offer suggestions based on what you are looking for.

  3. Sorry to hear that the result is a disappointment. The hotel does get pretty good tripadvisor reviews, so while location isn't optimal hopefully the hotel itself is satisfactory. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List with this new HOTWIRE property. Please use the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  4. Congrats on your success. Definitely an awesome win for this Disney property! Glad you are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.

  6. Congrats on your success. Excellent win! Glad you were able to get a good deal on a Disney property. Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  7. If there is a resort fee then that is almost always noted during checkout as an additional fee. Only on very rare occasions is there a fee that isn't shown. As for parking and other optional fees, that is not disclosed but can be researched. Many hotels do charge for parking in Orlando. Bed choice is sometimes shown as an option on PRICELINE EXPRESS listings and if 2 beds is one of the options then 2 beds is guaranteed. Otherwise, bed choice is not guaranteed - you have to contact the hotel after booking and the hotel may say yes or no. If you have 3 adults, then searching on HOTWIRE for 3 adults should result in bedding (2 beds, 1 + rollaway or 1 + sofa) for the amount of people in the party. In terms of hotel, are you looking for something in particular - particular amenities/area, a specific hotel? Let us know more about what you are looking for and we can also research and offer suggestions based on that.

  12. Congrats on your success. Fantastic deal for Christmas Eve, especially considering the additional value of breakfast and evening reception. Superb location, as well.

I'm also seeing: 4.5* Downtown Chicago - Millennium Park (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $91 Pets Allowed Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities >>>Best guess would be the Kimpton Monaco, which is a few blocks from the Virgin so not much difference in location. This is the slow season so there's a lot of very nice options around this price range - are you only looking to be in this part of the city?

    Chicago - West Loop - 3.5 *

    If this night has to be near Ogilvie, I'd recommend this: 4.5* Chicago Loop - Grant Park (please confirm that the correct date of travel is showing on the detail page after clicking this link) for $85 Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities >>>Best guess would be the Kimpton Gray Article on the restoration: https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/ct-gray-hotel-kamin-0831-20160830-column.html Nicer hotel than the Crowne Plaza for not much more (and a great deal vs the Grey's regular rate), plus about the same distance (0.5mi), just East of Ogilvie instead of West. Kimpton wine social hour at night, as well. There's also a French market under Ogilvie: https://frenchmarketchicago.com/ Thanks for keeping us updated on what you decide and very happy to help with the additional stay on the 21st.
