  3. Thank you for sharing your results with the board. Not sure if you didn't like either of the hotels above, but each was offered for substantially less than $160, so not sure why you continued to raise your bid over the price of the ones above. Be sure to use our BiddingHelper.com for your future bidding, as it: 1) will offer a guess as to the PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE hotel being offered for 2) shows regular rate prices of hotels of the same star rating in the zone, thereby determining if the PRICELINE EXPRESS / HOTWIRE offer is a good deal or not, and makes it easy to know what your maximum bid for a hotel of this star rating in the zone should be 3) has a priceline bidding form 'ready to go' if you decide not to go with the PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE offers Hopefully once you got PRICELINE on the phone it was easy enough to have them refund the difference and that you ultimately had a fun time in NYC! 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. Feel free to ask for a strategy before bidding in the future as i'm sure we could have prevented this overbid.
  4. I started bidding at $130 and it was accepted at $160. With taxes, fees, and "resort" fee all in would have been $236. Then I looked at the hotel's actual website, which gave me a base fee of $130. I spent 50 minutes on the phone to get them to refund the difference per the Best Price Guarantee. This is the second time I've found a cheaper price on my own and had to call to get the difference, and I've only done Priceline about 10x.

  8. Using the newly discovered BiddingHelper.com site, I saw that the Conrad of was going on Hotwire and PLE for about $320 total for the 2 nights. So, I started my bidding to total about 10% less. I probably coulda/shoulda started even lower. I have learned this hotel is undergoing a major renovation project. Hopefully, I can slide a couple Jacksons to the check-in person and get a nice little upgrade if occupancy is low. Grand total is $286.62 with taxes/fees.

  10.

  11. Hello! We'd like to get a nice hotel for the night in the West End, Midlothian or Midlothian South (Priceline) area, last 2 which have 3.5* as the highest rating, which is preferred but 3* can work if there just isn't anything. Would like to stay for $75 a night (before fees, taxes) if possible. We are driving in, so we'd like the amenity of free parking. Not sure if we should get a Name Your Own Price, Express deal, or Hotwire deal. If NYOP, please give a bidding strategy? They seem to be moving away from this though... Please advise. Thank you!

For this offer: 3* HOTWIRE Mississauga for $46 Free Parking Free Internet Indoor Pool Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business ==> Courtyard by Marriott Toronto Mississauga/West would be the best guess 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.

  15. Yes, I'm finding the same on HOTWIRE. Thanks again for checking.
  16. I'm not really seeing anything that is close to $100/nite, there is this 3 star: 3* HOTWIRE Flamingos - Bucerias - La Cruz de Huanacaxtle for $29 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Pool Restaurant ==> Bungallows Princess is the best guess for this one I don't know anything about this property, but after this one, prices jump to the $150-$175 range.

  17. Whether to bid or go with a PRICELINE EXPRESS property depends how flexible you are... if you're willing to accept any hotel in the zone at the star rating (or higher) that you choose vs. being able to guess/target the specific hotel that you will receive. Is there a reason you mention the two hotels above, as i think there are better options available (especially when also considering HOTWIRE). For example: 4* HOTWIRE Midtown East for $105 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business ==> Even Hotel Midtown East 4* HOTWIRE Times Square for $120 Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible ==> Hilton Times Square Thoughts on either of these properties and how they will work for your plans?

Let us know what you decide or how we can be of further help.
  18. Budget is $150-200 anywhere in Manhattan or Brooklyn. Express deal is giving me $180 for Hudson and SoHo 54 which seems pretty good. Since there seem to be a decent number of 3* and up for under $200 I'm wondering if I can get a higher star category if I bid the same price. I have to bring a car so I'm preparing to spend $60 for an overnight parking garage, just figured I'll find one on my own nearby.
  19. Earlier
  20. I was hoping to find something close to the beach with a pool and near Bucerias for around $100 a night. It doesn't need to be an all-inclusive but that might be a nice option if the price is right. Some of the resorts recently had bad reviews (customers fighting, vomiting in pools, etc) so I'd like to avoid those.
  21. Happy to help.🙂 Is there something specific that you're looking for and/or what is your target budget? Is this the only area you're considering staying or are you looking for an all-inclusive property and it does not matter too much what zone (or even if a different location?) 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.

  26. It was the Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour. Thanks for your help!
  27. Certainly plenty of time between now and your trip for something else to come up or a lower price to be found. We have just added a new 'instant ID' feature to BiddingHelper.com which should make it easy for you to keep on top of what hotels are being offered. After your BiddingHelper.com search: 1) click the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW or PRICELINE EXPRESS tab 2) hover your mouse over the 'FIND MATCH in HOTEL LIST' button (or click if on a mobile device) 3) the best guess for this hotel will be shown (or if not ID'd a button to have RevealHotels.com research the property) This new system above is not only easier to use, but it's also more extensive as it includes hotels that we have researched (and are confident in the ID) but have not yet been reported to the board. 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 and keep us updated on your progress or how we can be of further help.
