  1. Today
  2. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see it worked out well and as expected (and that you like the new BiddingHelper.com feature!)... should be a very nice stay at this well reviewed hotel. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. The tide will continue to turn... at the beginning of every season my daughter has visions of grandeur and expects us to head to the playoffs which usually results in tears after our first loss, but i'm a bit more patient. Have a great trip and fun in London.
  3. Love the new feature! It worked. I just made my first Hotwire HotDeal booking and got Park City London for 6 nights @$700 (with the 10% discount). Thank you so much! Sorry about your football team .Have a great weekend.
  4. Which day(s) do you need... just the nite of Nov 27 or something different/longer than just this one nite. A few other questions as well: 1) you do realize that although you may get (very) lucky and get a room that faces the parade, there is no way to guarantee that this would be the case (and not something that you should expect) 2) given #1, if you ultimately intend to watch on the sidewalk but just want to be close to the parade route, is something that is 1-2 blocks off of the route acceptable or do you need to be directly on the parade route? I did have a quick look at rates for just 11/27 and prices are surprisingly relatively affordable given that this is usually a very expensive nite, but i was mostly looking at 4.5*-5* that would be near the parade route and not necessarily directly on it.

  5. Better to narrow the likely outcome down to 1 instead of 3: 1) Search using our BiddingHelper.com tool 2) in the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab hover your mouse over the 'FIND MATCH in HOTEL LIST' button 3) the best guess for the hotel will be given at the top of the top of the box that opens (along with 'regular rate' hotel information for hotels of the same star rating in the zone as well as hotels that have previously been reported to the board in this zone)... this is a new feature that we are quite proud of (although being a Michigan fan the last few years we sometimes have to grasp at straws to find something to be proud of ) So the short answer is that the $122 for what appears to be the Parkcity London. Also available (you can check using the same method as above or ask questions if you're unsure) which i don't think were offered yesterday when we had searched: Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington for $97/nite (reviews not as good as the Parkcity but i mention since it's about $25 cheaper) or 4* HOTWIRE Westminster Bridge - London Eye - Vauxhall for $114 Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Business ==> Marlin Aparthotel Waterloo As well, for today only, there is a Hotwire Coupon for 10% off.

Let us know what you decide and how it goes or how we can be of further help.
  6. THanks for explanation thereuare. I am seeing The ParkCity London for $155 for entire stay or could be 1 of 3 in the HotDeal for $122. Was it in the HotDeal where you saw it for $122/night?
  7. I'm searching on Hotwire and Priceline.
  8. Hello All Seeking help to find a 4.5* or 5* on the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade route/ Central Park South zone in NYC. Budget is $300-350 each night including taxes. Thank you, Melissa 😃
  9. Yesterday
  10. Even through traditional booking channels, it looks like on-site availability is low and prices are high... not a good combination for 'choosing' the hotel you want at a deeply discounted price. What looks to be the Dolphin is offered for just $133/nite: 4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $133 Resort Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Given how high rates are elsewhere maybe you can make this work for your needs at this price, but other than this, do you see any options (even through more traditional booking channels) that meet your needs and budget?

  11. With HOTWIRE there is no bidding... you pay the (discounted) price that the hotel is being offered at; it's just like PRICELINE EXPRESS (if you have used that side of Priceline's service) The 'problem' is that you can't necessarily use the HOTWIRE rate to choose your bidding amount since: 1) the HOTWIRE hotel may not have the same star rating on PRICELINE 2) the HOTWIRE hotel may not be in the same zone on PRICELINE 3) the HOTWIRE hotel may not be available through PRICELINE ... few other 'in-depth' reasons too but the three above should be enough to explain some of the challenges. So you can use the HOTWIRE price to determine a maximum bid (since any higher you might be better off just taking the HOTWIRE offer) but you can't necessarily rely on being able to undercut it by bidding. As well, you probably wouldn't want to bid on Hotwire in this situation (even if they did offer this service) since you apparently like the Mercure better than the Russel Court, and since these are both 4 star hotels that are in the same zone, there would be no way to target the Mercure while avoiding the Russel Court. However, also to add, i'm no longer seeing the Mercure offered when searching for your complete stay... although i am now seeing The Parkcity London (in the Kensington - Shepherds Bush - Westfield London zone) for $122/nite which gets good reviews should this also work for your needs.

  12. no. I did not. I would stay at another Disney hotel but at a lower price of 150 or less. We stayed at Bonnet Creek in Sept for 50 plus resort fees. I was hoping for a Disney property excluding the dolphin and swan.
  13. Congratulations on your success! Nice to see you were able to get something very affordable for this nite and that this satisfies your needs while in the area. Thank you for using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping add add this hotel and amenity set to the Indianapolis Priceline Express Hotel List. Enjoy your stay.
  14. No deal. Do I try again later increasing my budget? I've never used Hotwire, but given there is 4* for $119, does that indicate i won't get it for much less? As always, thanks for your help and have a good day.
  15. Not the best bargain, but great for a one night stay. After taxes and fees the total is $76.67. Amenities are Free breakfast, free parking, pool, gym, free internet, no smoking, handicapped accessible, pets allowed and shuttle. Used the board PRICELINE link as always.
  16. Last week
  17. I'm not sore sure $100 is going to do it (since the lower price is seen on HOTWIRE and you're currently bidding on priceline), but to give it a try: When bidding 4 stars in the London area you have currently have SIX re-bid zones available. If you're not familiar with re-bidding, see Priceline Re-Bidding Explained... Select 4* The City, Westminster, Kensington, Mayfair Bid $85, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $88, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $90, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $93, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $95, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $98, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $100 I would first try your complete set of dates, then if rejected try: 12/10-12/15 12/11-12/16 12/10-12/14 12/12-12/16 12/10-12/13 12/13-12/16 Any questions feel free to ask. 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 let us know how it goes.
  18. I can split up the entire stay (Tues 12/10- Mon 12/16) in any combination. Mercure looks good, so i guess that can be my fallback if bidding isn't successful. I would like to lower my bid to be $100 Thanks again.
  19. To confirm, your trip is really for 6 nites (12/10-12/16) but you're willing to split into two separate purchases? If the above is accurate is 12/10-12/14 and 12/14-12/16 the only way that you're willing to split, or would any combination of dates work? (ie- would 12/10-12/13 and 12/13-12/16 also be acceptable..... or 12/12-12/16) Also, for your complete stay, HOTWIRE has what appears to be: Russel Court Hotel (mixed reviews) for $95/nite Mercure London Kensington Hotel for $119/nite ==> would either of these be acceptable and cause you to lower your maximum bid price? 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. Please confirm the information above and we'll take it from there. PS- if you haven't bid on priceline in awhile note that they have been moving/hiding the bidding page, if you're having trouble locating it, we have set up the following site for quick and easy access to the bidding side of priceline: BiddingForHotelRooms.com
  20. Looking for help on NYOP Priceline. Zones The City, Westminster, Kensington, Mayfair. Budget is $125. Happy to break up my week stay (12/10-12/16). THanks.
  21. You don't mention what it is that you're looking for in a hotel for this trip so i can't really comment how this fits your plans for this trip.. What are your plans while in the area this stay... do you prefer to be near one specific park? A resort-like setting important? A nice pool? Budget? What made you choose this offer when there are others that are higher rated and less expensive (especially when including Bonnet Creek as an option and when considering HOTWIRE too)? Are your travel plans for this date firm?
