  4. So for this hotel: 4.5* HOTWIRE Downtown - Coal Harbour, Convention Center, & Stanley Park for $157 Resort Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Golf nearby ==> i agree with your guess of the Pan Pacific If you're not, be aware that our BiddingHelper.com tool will identify just about any HOTWIRE or PRICELINE EXPRESS offers... just do your search at Bidding Helper, click the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW or PRICELINE EXPRESS tab, and then hover your mouse over the 'SEE MATCH from HOTEL LIST' button. Back to your bed situation... Some HOTWIRE (and PRICELINE EXPRESS) hotels will show a Bed Choice option where you can choose the room configuration that you want. Unfortunately this property does not show a room choice, which means that the actual room will be assigned at check-in based upon availability. When no room choice is assigned you can usually call the hotel ahead of time and request the room type that you want. Most hotels will note this request on your reservation and will do what they can to accommodate... a few hotels will indicate that they can't make any changes to the reservation or that a room can't be determined until check-in (often in this situation i may just say 'thank you' and call back in 2-3 days and hope for a different front desk person to answer the phone... i also try to call when i assume they won't be too busy; never at 11am check-out time or 3-4pm check-in time so that the person on the phone may be willing to take a little extra time vs. if they have a line of people waiting in front of them. If this too fails, i then may do a little homework, find the email address of the hotel manager, and send an email indicating that i'm looking forward to my stay, it's a special occasion, and make my bed type known). One thing in your favor at this property is that the hotel charges the same for rooms with 1 King bed vs. rooms with 2 beds. In some areas (such as Las Vegas) hotels charge more for rooms with 2 beds, and therefore if that is the room type you are seeking, it may become a little more difficult since you're not just making a bedding request, but seeking the more expensive room type. Lastly, the Pan Pacific Vancouver is selling for about $223 for your nite above, so the question also becomes is the ~$65 savings worth the chance that you may or may not get the room configuration that you want. If a 2 bedded room was $150 would it be acceptable? at $125? at $100? Typically at some point the possibility of not getting the room type you want becomes worthwhile in exchange for the amount of the savings. Do you have an amount in mind where staying right near the cruise pier becomes worthwhile even if you were to only receive a room with two beds... or is a room with two beds a deal breaker at any price? If this is a deal breaker, what is your budget for a room this trip for a one bedded room?

  5. October 6th, 2020 for one night. $157 plus fees/taxes for a total of $201.74
  6. Welcome to BetterBidding! Let us first have a look at the offer (we will confirm that we agree with your guess of the Pan Pacific) and we'll then be able to investigate what your bedding options may be. So we can research this for you, what are the dates of your stay and the room rate for the hotel offer you're looking at?

  7. No mention of beds for 4.5 star deal, don't want to end up with 2 doubles I'm considering booking a "hot rate", which I believe will end up being the Pan Pacific, which is great because we are cruising from Canada Place. The price listed is considerably less than I've seen elsewhere, but there is no mention of room time. I don't want to end up with two doubles when I check in. I noticed in the terms that it says only the rate is guaranteed, not the room type or beds. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  8. Last week
  9. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you scored BIG!!! with this one and that you're looking forward to your trip. A very nice deal and we're happy to hear that the new features of the BiddingHelper.com tool are being well received. Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us keep the Chicago Hotwire Hotel List current and up-to-date. Have a great stay.
  10. Congratulations on your success! Looks like a nice deal... thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add the amenity set for this property to the Denver Priceline Express Hotel List. To confirm, this is showing as 4.5 star in your confirmation email, as i'm currently seeing the Westin Downtown listed as 4 stars by Priceline (if you're seeing at 4.5 star we will mark it as such, assuming that it was a recent upgrade and it is taking a little while for the new rating to be reflected on the 'retail' side of their service) Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  11. Free internet, Pet friendly, Indoor pool(s), Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Spa services I knew there were only two River North 5* hotels, but one of them is the Trump and I really wanted to avoid it -- and they often show exactly the same amenities. Fortunately the BiddingHelper.com predicted the Langham, and then showed me an 'actual photo', so I was totally confident. (That would have been an extremely expensive mistake!) This is an absolutely amazing deal. I stayed one time at the Langham, and I think it is the best hotel I have ever stayed in, anywhere. But I'd never be able to afford it at rack price! (And I even got Bed Choice!)

  13. Thank you very much! We will take a cab especially as it will be about 2am german time when we leave the airport (Munich is 7 hours in front of Chicago) and we all will be very tired. So it`s more comfortable and I hope at about 7pm the traffic will be okay. Have a nice day, Christian
  14. Congratulations on your success! Nice to see you're happy with the win... $70 savings on a $99 purchase seems like a pretty good discount, imo. We're happy to hear you like the new feature(s) at BiddingHelper.com and it was helpful with your purchase! Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  15. Our trip is far in the future, but I wanted to have the first hotels booked, even in this area, where there are not so many hotels. I thought that maybe in August it could get full soon in Door County. Not really a big bargain, but it saved nearly 70 $ compared to a booking through Best Western directly. We booked two Queen bed rooms, so it was slighty more expensive than the room with double beds. Including taxes and after a Hotwire Coupon discount code sent by email it was 216 USD for 1 night and two rooms. The amenities are: Free Breakfast Free Internet Free Parking Pet Friendly Indoor Pool Spa Non-Smoking Handicap Accessible Thank you for the help on your website. Your BiddingHelper.com identified the hotel perfectly. Greetings from cold Munich, Germany Christian
  16. NicoleFnJane, Thanks for the info! AMBERW, As i'm sure you're finding out, or were already aware, historically this is one of the most expensive weekends in NYC. What are your needs from a hotel for this nite and 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.
  17. I highly don’t recommend Queens County Inn & Suites personally. A friend stayed there in September and moved twice before going to another hotel. i highly recommend the Ravel in the area or literally any of the 4 stars in LIC. The Wingate is brand new too
  18. We have recently added a new feature to the BiddingHelper.com which should easily identify this, as well as most other, hotels... 1) search with the BiddingHelper.com 2) click the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW or PRICELINE EXPRESS tab 3) hover your mouse over (or click) the 'SEE MATCH from HOTEL LIST' Using the method above: 3* Long Island City (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $120/nite with: Free Breakfast Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Queens County Inn and Suites Long Island City is the best guess for this one 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. AWESOME! Glad to hear it went as well as you expected and you have a great time. Thanks for the follow-up!
  21. Thanks for the wishes- The Pyongchang gold winning US Sled Hockey team was in town for a training camp, so we got to meet them, which was really cool, and we got to watch some of the Delco Phantoms ( Phillies AHL affiliate ) training camp in the adjoining arena. Plus, I learned a lot and had an excellent hotel stay. Thanks again!
  22. GREAT NEWS! Glad to see you resolved the issue above and received the hotel you were hoping for... we're happy to have been able to help. Thank you for sharing your win with the board.

  24. For the link you posted if i click it i see Bonnet Creek. If i RIGHT click and open in private browsing mode i see Maingate West (so under specific conditions i am able to replicate your issue). HOWEVER, for the link i posted i see Bonnet Creek no matter if i open the link 'regular' or in private mode. I suspect a glitch in their system since even when i do see the 'Maingate West' it also indicates 'Someone recently got the Hilton Orlando-Bonnet Creek Resort' which is a hotel in the Bonnet Creek zone (not the Maingate West zone). Are you searching using incognito mode and/or private browsing? If so, i would start over clicking the link in provided above in 'regular' mode and see if you continue to see Maingate West or if you now see Bonnet Creek. If you're trying to target a hotel in the Bonnet Creek zone i would not proceed with a purchase unless the purchase page indicated this zone (and to be on the safe side i would also take a screen shot of the booking page as it will make it easier to plead your case should there be an issue) 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 if you're ultimately able to get the page to appear as Bonnet Creek when browser is in 'regular' mode. Also, have you tried a different browser as well?
  25. That links takes me to the booking page (the page after clicking BOOK) and also shows me 'Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek Area'. You're seeing Maingate West when clicking the link above?
