  1. Today
  2. Thanks, we have updated the Chicago Priceline Hotel List accordingly to reflect this new star rating... thanks for reporting your win and helping to make the change.
  3. This hotel charges the same for rooms with 2 Bed vs. 1 King, so it is likely that if you ask at check-in and this room type is available they will likely be willing to switch. However, based upon current rates occupancy seems to be high for this nite and having a look at the Sheraton website i don't see any 'standard' king rooms available (only King rooms are in a Suite)... so it certainly pays to ask, but keep in mind that the hotel may simply not have any king rooms available. On a positive site the 2 bed rooms i'm seeing for your dates are over $450/nite for this nite... so an excellent deal! Have a great trip!
  4. Yesterday
  5. I’ll do that. Not that I’m that bothered but it seems to be a 2 double room and would prefer a king. Not too important though as I land at 7 and will most likely go to bed by the time I arrive and leave early in the morning so won’t care too much!
  6. Congrats on your success. Good deal for this Sheraton property! I'd ask at check-in if there's any way you could get a room facing South to get a river view. Thank you using the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List for Chicago Enjoy your stay.
  7. Should be good - thank you FYI - on my itinerary this is down as a 5*
  8. Congrats on your success. Terrific win for this newer Gold Coast property! Great location and nice Lou Malnati's a couple of doors away. Please let me know if you have any city questions. Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  9. Was surprised to get this one! This was a Name Your Price deal. And this is in £ just to be clear I was trying for the day before but I noticed the prices for the day before were particularly expensive and as I was travelling light and alone (i.e no kids and in particular no wife!!) I didn't mind splitting up my hotel stays. When I was trying for both nights I think I got to £150 and Priceline came back with a offer of increasing my bid to £316 ($410) which I politely declined. So I thought I'd try just for the night on the 23/10 and I was happy to accept a 4.5* which I had selected. I got up to £150 ($195) and it got accepted but also took me to a 5* which was the Viceroy which looks v nice. I realise there is always the chance of getting a higher * than you chose but as I was going up in small increments I didn't expect a 5* anyhow thought it may be of use to someone
  10. Thanks to this board (I clicked through the links) I was able to work out from the amenities what this hotel was likely to be - for some odd reason the 22 and 23 were really expensive, particularly the 22 (I have a Priceline Name Your Price for the 23 to report next) - everywhere was SO expensive but this deal on Hotwire seemed pretty good and I was able to find a post with your best guess with the amenities (It isn't in the main list of hotels). Thank you Amenities Business center Fitness center Golf nearby Indoor pool(s) Internet access Pet friendly Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Smoke-free rooms
  11. Hi MichaelEg, Yes, it's entirely possible that HOTWIRE (or even PRICELINE EXPRESS) shows a 'Room Choice' on the search results page but then no room option(s) are given during the checkout page. I'm not sure of the logistics 'behind the scenes', but we have seen this frequently. If there is a specific offer that you're looking at, or would like help with your trip (i'm very familiar with NYC), feel free to start a NEW TOPIC and we would be happy to assist you there. 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.
  12. At the start site it shows "bed choice available". But during the booking process it is not possible. Is that right?
  13. Last week
  14. Congratulations on your success... and glad to hear you like the new Reveal Hotels! Not sure why HOTWIRE had an issue with processing your transaction but glad to see that it finally went thru and you're now set for this initial nite of your trip. Did you also purchase the other nites of your stay (at the Encore?) or did you not yet move forward for that part of the stay? If still looking, did you want to also consider the Center Strip area since that is where you will be the first nite, or did you only want to stay in the North Strip area for the balance? Thank you for sharing your win with the board and using the board links for your purchase(s). Enjoy this leg of your stay.
  15. Ok I tried for another 45 minutes and got the Cosmopolitan Nov. 10th one night $62 . Great deal. Thanks for informing of this. I had never used Hotwire before and didn't know about your reveal hotels link. Thank you very much. I will go thru my email to try to find info on the Denver and Cleveland hotels and update this site accordingly.
  16. Looks like now Cosmo gone, but I wish it had informed me of such before I wasted 2 1/2hours on the site. I refreshed and it showed deal still there. Kept putting credit card and it kept throwing me out Oh well. If you come across another such deal pls advise. Thank you.
  17. I found the link to the Hotwire Cosmo hotel. I've been trying to book for two hours and it won't go thru. I tried on my computer and cell phone. It keeps giving me an error message. I've tried to sign in on Hotwire on computer and won't let me but will allow on my phone. I have gone thru your site. The payment /card is good,so I don't know what is the problem. I refreshed and the deal is still valid. I'm going to try again. Thanks.
  18. Thank you. I thought that since hotels in same general area changing would be less of a hassle. But I hear Cosmopolitan is nice and would like to stay there for that one night. I have never used Hotwire and not sure where to find the Cosmo hotel on the site for the price you listed. Yes, I am getting in late because next day flight was too early and was able to change at less costs. Was going to stay at Tuscany for $27 (1st night) plus of course resort fee but decided to try to stay at a 5* for entire trip. As far as those other two hotels, I'll check my email as that was a long time ago. Sorry I didn't update.
  19. Please follow-up your previous Denver Airport Priceline hotel and Hotwire Cleveland Airport hotel threads with whatever you ended up doing for each of those trips. Please remember to follow-up your threads with your wins/decisions as you make them (even if you don't ultimately use PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book direct, etc) as this help keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone... as well as being a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your travel plans. For the hotels above: 5* The Strip - Northeast (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $136/nite with: Free Parking Fitness Center Casino Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Encore At Wynn Las Vegas For the Solo Sunday nite: 5* The Strip - Northeast (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $92/nite with: Free Parking Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Business Center Casino Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino Splitting the stay as you have would look to be the least expensive combination, but you have to decide if the price difference is worth needing to change rooms (or if you really need a 5 star hotel for the first nite depending upon how early/late you arrive, how much you'll be in the room, how much you want to be in this part of the strip (and close to the hotel for the remaining nites of your stay)). For example, if your sole objective is price, you could even do this for the Sunday arrival: 5* HOTWIRE Center Strip - Fountains for $61 Free Parking Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Casino Fitness Pool Restaurant Business ==> from our new tool/sister site, RevealHotels.com, best guess for this one would be the Cosmopolitan 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.
  20. I don't think any of the above are necessarily going to guarantee you a city view. Finding a hotel that you want and that shows a specific room type (ie- 'city view' ) that you're hoping for is going to be a difficult feat... most hotels are not going to be that descriptive nor are they necessarily going to disclose/label their most sought after rooms at a deep discount. You may get lucky, and it does happen, but you're really holding out for the needle in the haystack. Sometimes you can upgrade to the type of room you want just by asking, or sometimes with an additional upgrade fee... but this is HIGHLY 'your mileage may vary'; so much depends upon what is available at the time you check-in, mood of the front desk clerk, hotel policy, occupancy levels, etc. etc. At check-in you could ask if a room with a view is available, and if the answer is 'no', you could then ask 'what about for an additional fee could i upgrade to a room with a view?' Such a room may not be available, or the front desk clerk may not want to go thru the keystrokes to re-assign your room, or you may be given a price for the upgrade (which you can then still try negotiating lower). Bottomline is that the opaque providers offer a deep discount in exchange for being flexible, so unless you're able to find a room that specifically offers a city view, and you would be disappointed if you end up in a standard room, you may have to 'pay up' for the room type you want at regular retail rates (at which point i will also add that our current Priceline Coupon is valid for PRICELINE EXPRESS as well as and 'retail' rates where you pay in advance.

  21. Can you please help me identify this 5* hotel northeast strip. Express deals show the following for 3 nights Nov. 11-14, 2019, $136: 5* , parking,fitness, casino, restaurant, no smoking, pool. A few days ago it was $116 a night. I didn't act fast enough. Snooze you loose. Thank you, and also 5* $92 Nov 10-11,2019, northeast strip, fitness, shuttle, busi ctr., casino, restaurant, no smoking, pool. I'm thinking about coming in a day early. I think it would be cheaper to make the 3 night and then get the one night at $92. What do you think. Thanks for your help.
  22. Looks like none of these would translate to city view, right? As far as Kimpton describes their rooms. hoteleventi.com/hotels-in-manhattan/nyc-boutique-hotel-rooms/ $209/night Room Assigned At Check-In - Sleeps Two Adults $217/night King Bed $237/night Standard Room $251/night King Bed - Accessible Room $251/night Deluxe Room
  23. Kimpton looks very promising. For 2 nights, $529 for Standard King or $603 for Deluxe Room including 5% promo code is the only remaining decision I think. Will do some more research on the rooms.
  24. Happy to help! Let us know if/how we can help further... or if you want us to have a second look/confirmation at any property before you move forward with a purchase. 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. Good luck!
  25. Thanks, yeah $300 / night was the budget I had in mind. Those all look interesting and great feedback, thanks for putting it together. I will do some more research and let you know where I end up.
  26. Welcome to BetterBidding! Based upon your reference to the Quin, i am assuming your budget is $300 per nite (vs. total for the entire stay). Note that from what i have read there is currently construction/refurbishing going on at that property. If you're open to other ideas some things i see as interesting (with our best guess following each): 5* Central Park South (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $189/nite with: Free Breakfast Pets Allowed Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> InterContinental Times Square 5* Chelsea Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $237/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Kimpton Eventi 5* HOTWIRE Empire State Building - Bryant Park for $285 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant ==> Refinery Hotel New York If you don't necessarily have to have a 5 star hotel you could also consider either of the following, both of which generally receive excellent reviews: 4.5* Empire State Building Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $214/nite with: Pets Allowed Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Archer Hotel New York 4.5* Rockefeller Center - Bryant Park (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $231/nite with: Free Breakfast Pets Allowed Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Park Terrace Hotel on Bryant Park Any of the above of interest? I'm very familiar with NYC so ask any questions that you may have which can help you make a decision.

  27. Hi Guys, Looking at 2 nights in NY, budget probably $300 or so. King bed, double occupancy. 2 adults just looking to be close to bars and restaurants around midtown. We are fairly flexible on location in Manhattan but the idea of a 5 star near Central Park South is appealing. Hotwire Easy View Deal at $258 - which looks like Quin Central park (I assume it has to be to match 3,550 reviews 🙂) - seems like a pretty good deal. Has there been much forum feedback on this or similar 5* deals? Cheers, Dave ETA - probably should have posted this in hotwire forum but flexible between either HW or priceline

  29. Thank you very much for your help! So we better invest the money for the cab than taking public transportation and have to change the lines with the luggage. After our stay at Chicago we rent a car at hertz. Midway would have a choiceline, but at 9.30 am it may take some time with uber or the orange line. Do you know a good hertz station in Chicago? With the reviews it's difficult as satisfied customers rarely write a review. Best wishes, Christian
