  5. Yesterday
  6. I just pulled the trigger on this one. Indeed it’s the Radisson NYC at the Wall Street. It was just under $200 a night including the tax and fees with the 5% off coupon “BBAUG19”. I figured it’s a decent price with good location. Thanks for the help! Now I need to look for a hotel in DC.
  7. Yes that’s the one I was asking about. The kids are 8 and 5. We’ve been there before but not the kids. This is a short getaway for them for the m ( school off for teacher training days). We’ll be sightseeing mainly and have friends recommended us to stay in Manhattan. Our budget is probably less than 300 a night including the fees and also location is very important, ie, safe and close to the subway.
  8. For this one: 5* South Beach - Central - Art Deco District (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $105/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Free Internet available Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Kimpton Angler's Hotel is my best guess Although more the exception than the rule, it wouldn't be the first time that we have seen a hotel offered/won thru PRICELINE when other channels did not show any availability. 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. Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  9. Please include the room description/amenities in your post as it makes sure that we are looking at and researching the same property. I assume this is the one you're referring to: 4* Downtown - Wall Street (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $166/nite with: Restaurant Free Internet available Free Internet Fitness Center ==> Radisson Hotel New York Wall Street is my best guess here How old are your children? Do you have reason to stay in the Downtown area or are you drawn to this one based upon price? Have you been to NYC before? What is your maximum budget? (per nite before fees/taxes) 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.
  10. Best guess for each: 5* The Strip - Northeast (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $238/nite with: Free Parking Airport Shuttle Fitness Center Pets Allowed Restaurant Free Internet available Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino ==> Palazzo 5* The Strip - Central West (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $239/nite with: Pets Allowed Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center ==> Bellagio 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.

  11. 5 Star Hotel - South Beach - Central - Art Deco District. I tend to believe it's the Kimpton Angler's Hotel, but there is no availability on their site, or on Priceline's and the price doesn't seem right. Do you know what other options? Sept 5-10, 2019 - $105/night Amenities: Free Internet Available Pets Allowed Outdoor Swimming Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Handicapped Rooms/Facilities Business Center Spa Free Internet Access Swimming Pool
  12. Need some help ID this hotel. Is this a good price? The price is for a single queen bed. The two twin bed is $10 higher. We will be traveling with two little kids. Not sure if they provide a roller bed or have a sofa bed available in the room. Is the 5% off coupon still good for the express deal? Thanks in advance.
  13. Got two Express deal options, looking to stay 9/19-9/23. Here are the descriptions: 5* Casino Hotel The Strip - Northeast $238/night Hotel Amenities Free Internet Available Free Parking Pets Allowed Outdoor Swimming Pool Airport Shuttle No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Fitness Center Handicapped Rooms/Facilities Casino Spa Restaurant Free Internet Access Swimming Pool 9+ Guest rating Says it will be one of Venetian, Palazzo, Wynn, or Encore 5* Casino Hotel The Strip - Central West $239/night Hotel Amenities Pets Allowed Outdoor Swimming Pool Fitness Center Handicapped Rooms/Facilities Casino Spa Restaurant Swimming Pool 8+ Guest rating Doesn't give a suggestion of which hotels it could be Please let me know if you can help here, thanks!
  14. Last week
  15. Complimentary Free breakfast Free internet Amenities Business center Fitness center Golf nearby Pet friendly Restaurant(s) Smoke-free rooms I had to book via phone because of the credit card issues.
  16. The hotels above were from HOTWIRE (identified using the 'REVEAL HOTELS' button inside the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab of BiddingHelper.com) We can suggest a strategy for you to follow-up for a 5* hotel via Priceline Bidding, but given the hotels and prices above, how high would you like us to go in terms of bid price? Also, if you have started to explore bidding already you may find that they have been moving/hiding the bidding page, so we have set up the following page/site for quick and easy access (which you can bookmark now if you do a fair amount of bidding from time-to-time): Bidding for Hotel Rooms.com Let us know your maximum bid price and we will suggest a strategy for you to follow.
  17. I have seen the One Farrer Hotel in HW searches as a the likely property via REVEAL. It is well rated (Trip Adv 2019 Travelers Choice), seems like decent location, and fairly inexpensive. A very good option it appears. But Grand Park Orchard may be in a better location. The Intercontinental is appealing at that price and a good location, as well as a TA Travelers Choice. Were those found on HW via BiddingHelper.com? Obviously going the PL route, I am ok with winning any hotel. Thus my "but... you know" comment 🙂 If I decide to book a specific hotel and take no chances, HW or PL, I'll be sure to use mapsandhotels.com
  18. Before bidding, few comments/questions: Thoughts on any of these properties for around the $100-$120 area: One Farrer Hotel (i don't know anything about this property but does get good reviews) Grand Park Orchard or in the $150-$160 range: InterContinental Singapore InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay .... or if you want to bid on PRICELINE are you OK winning any hotel in the zones above? 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. Let us know your thoughts and we'll take it from there.
  19. So now in this insanity. Tried to book a couple times. Got an error saying problem with my card but I check with the bank. They say they went through just fine so they call Hotwire and Hotwire says that the room sold out before I hit book and it will take a 5 days to release the holds. i now can’t book anything at all for 5 days because Hotwire offered me rooms they don’t have
  20. I've been playing around with the Bidding Helper to get some background on what appears to be a Country with not a lot of (updated?) data points. I'm looking to stay in the Colonial District, Orchard Rd, or Little India. PL itself shows 5* in those areas ~$200, so I figure bidding less than $100 probably won't get me anywhere. If HW is any indication, 5* seem to be in the $145 range, so maybe ~$120 isn't out of the question. I'd love to score a win for Hotel Fort Canning or Marriott Tang Plaza as they appear in the BB PL hotel list. But... you know. Any thoughts or advice are appreciated as always.
  21. It was working for me then suddenly started saying invalid. I called them on the phone and ravel won’t pop anymore now of course. They also told me it is for hotels over $200 a night and I had to repeatedly insist the fine print says $200 purchase (and mine was over $360)
  22. It's working for me (on desktop) as i just tried in 3 different browsers: $176.00 per night x 2 nights x 1 room $352.00 Tax recovery charges + fees $108.57 Promo Code -$28.16 Are you on desktop (what Operating System, browser and version) or mobile (what operating system and browser)?
  23. There is THIS 3.5* Long Island City hotel for $143/nite: Complimentary Free internet Amenities Business center, Fitness center, Pet friendly, Restaurant(s), Smoke-free rooms Accessibility In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom ==> best guess would be the Wyndham Gardne Long Island City ... and this 4 star Long Island City for $176 which i believe we agree is likely The Ravel Let us know whatever you decide and how it goes. 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.
  24. I can’t with Hotwire anymore. I’m going to find something as cheap as humanly possible and I’m going to book it and use up my hot dollars. If it doesn’t meet the promises I’m going to file a cc dispute. I will NEVER seek resolution through Hotwire again and anyone who does is mad
  25. Radisson Wall Street is even cheaper but no balcony or guaranteed view 😭
