  3. PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal 3* Dulles- Chantilly $103. This hotel might need to be added to the PRICELINE EXPRESS deals. Just booked the express deal and got it. Thanks.
  4. 80% Recommended - Good. Amenities: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Pool(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby Total cost including taxes and fees is $78.12. This is for an employee's one night so I'm okay with it. Thought I would get Holiday Inn Express which I think would have been better.

  6. The walk to the Clark/Lake Blue Line is definitely a quick/straightforward scroll and this is a great, central location. I'd agree that if possible best not to rent a car until after the hotel stay - if you're parking in the Millennium Park lots, that's around $40, but if you're parking at the hotel that can be higher than $70. If your brother lives near a Metra station, perhaps that might also be an option, but in any case I wouldn't rent a car to drive downtown. I'm very familiar with the Chicago area and happy to answer any hotel (or city) questions.

Thank you for using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us add the amenity set for this hotel to the Orlando Priceline Express Hotel List. Enjoy your stay.

  9. Welcome to BetterBidding! Taking mass transit from O'Hare to 'Downtown' is relatively easy, probably about 50-60 minutes. Unless heading towards O'Hare is in the opposite direction of your brother's place i would suggest picking up the rental car on Thursday afternoon/evening after your stay (if your brother's place is in the opposite direction of O'Hare then it becomes a more difficult decision, but still may be better to take mass transit). By picking up the rental car after your hotel stay you not only save on parking, but also save paying for an additional rental day, and will likely be able to take advantage of weekend rates if you are picking up the vehicle after 12:00 noon on Thursday. In regards to the hotel you're referencing above: 4.5* HOTWIRE Theater District - Loop for $103.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> best guess for this one would be Virgin Hotels Chicago Assuming our research above is correct, the Blue Line is a 5 minute walk from this hotel which is the subway line that you would take to/from O'Hare. Does this work for your needs?

Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  10. I am traveling with my wife and looking for a one night stay in Chicago. Prefer Theater District / Loop area . Check in Dec 5. On HotWire I am seeing a 4.5 star Hotel with the following amenities: Restaurant, Fitness, Smoke Free, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Golf, Pet Friendly. My guess is its the Kimpton Gray Hotel but the Golf amenity is adding a bit of uncertainty. What do you think? Also I will be arriving at O'hare and getting a rental car at some point since I will be traveling out to my brothers for the weekend. What are the options for ground transportation from the airport to the hotel? Or should I just bite the bullet and pay for overnight parking? Thanks for you help.

  16. You got that right! Looking at the hotel's own website, the best deal for a room (with Senior Discount) is $51 room rate $7 tax $38 "resort fee" Total: $96 ... making Priceline Express about a 33% discount!
  17. Congratulations on your success! Hope this property works well for your needs in the area this trip and that you're pleased with the outcome. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and enabling us to add this hotel to the Utah Priceline Express Hotel List.

  18. Congratulations on your success for this leg of your stay. At least you got a discount on the room, as you could have just as easily (as the majority of guests who stay at this hotel) could be paying $47/nite room rate for these same dates and still have the $34/nite to pay on top of that... when looking at the alternative paying a room rate less than the resort fee is not such a bad situation to be in (since it is indicative that you received a great deal on the room) This is true in many locations, but especially in the Las Vegas area where hotel demand (and prices) are driven by conferences, conventions, and other special events. I was researching a trip recently where the hotel's regular rate for the first 2 nites was about $140/nite... the 3rd nite, when a big conference started, the hotel rate for the same $140 hotel jumped to $675/nite!!! Not sure of your plans while in Vegas, but do try to catch a sporting event at the Westgate's Sports Book which is the largest sportsbook in the world. Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases. Have a great trip... and good luck in Vegas!
  19. Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your win with the board, helping us add the amenity set for this property to the Las Vegas Priceline Express Hotel List. Unfortunately 'resort fees' are a trend in Las Vegas (and in many other cities throughout the country) that appears here to stay for the time being. However, just to clarify for anyone else that is following along, these fees are charged directly by the hotel regardless of how you book. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  20. Thanks for the follow-up and additional information. Nearby your hotel i recommend this place for breakfast one morning (one of the best bagels in the city, imo): Ess-A-Bagel 831 3rd Ave (east side of Third Ave between 50th and 51st streets) Let me know if you have any questions about the city that we can assist with. Have a great stay!

    Need NYC Advice for 9/26

    FYI, the UN is in session this week and i suspect the reason for the unusually high rates you're seeing for this nite. Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.
  22. Total price: $93 This hotel is offered by name by Priceline for about $20 more than the Express Deal. Amenities: Free Internet Access Free Parking Free Breakfast Pets Allowed Swimming Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Fitness Center Business Center Note: Springdale is a few miles down the road. This zone is described by Priceline as "Hurricane (La Verkin)".
  23. In this instance, the "mandatory fee" of $34 is a LOT more than the advertised price of $21. The total came to $63. Amenities: Free Parking Swimming Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Fitness Center Casino Restaurant NOTE: this was for a Wednesday night. It seems the price for the preceding Monday was $67 (plus all the fees). This was cheaper than my Monday night deal in Henderson for a lesser stars (3.5 vs 4) property. It seems the different dates make a big difference.
  24. For rooms in Las Vegas, Priceline advertises some really low prices ... as low as $17 for a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal. But there's a catch: almost every hotel adds a "mandatory fee", which can be more than the so-called "price". So this $36 room is actually a $61 room (plus another $12 taxes and fees) for a total of $73. Amenities: Swimming Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Fitness Center Casino Restaurant
  25. Thank you! It's a great service you provide. We are very much looking forward to our trip. It ended up being closer to $280 a night with fees, but still less than $120 cheaper than other discount websites. Yes, the following were also listed in my hotwire account: Accessibility: Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom In your bidding helper: Restaurant, Fitness, Smoke Free, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Laundry, Golf, Childrens Activities, Deaf Accessible, Travel Accessible, Room Accessible, Bathroom Accessible, Wheelchair Accessible, Pet Friendly The giveaway was the golf nearby and the children's activities.
