  4. Last week
  5. Correct, which is why i tried to clarify before proceeding. So you have the Villa Florence Hotel Hotel option above thru HOTWIRE, or you have this option from PRICELINE EXPRESS: 4* Union Square West (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $249/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> Hotel Adagio is our guess for this one. NOTE that all priceline reservations are for double occupancy, this this offer provides a 'Bed Choice' of 2 Queen Beds. Although technically your room is still booked for double occupancy, i don't know of anyone who has yet had an issue showing up with a 3rd/4th guests when a specific room type was booked and that room is designed to accommodate the number of guests in the group. Also, as priceline doesn't indicate that this property has a resort fee (whereas the HOTWIRE above does) the price difference between the two is not as much as it may appear at first glance. Thoughts on either of these? 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.

  7. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you got two nice deals for each leg of this trip and that you're all set and looking forward to your family vacation. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Have a great trip!
  8. Congratulations on your success... a very nice rate for NYC at any time of year! An excellent example of how rates can differ greatly, even from one day to the next, as this Sunday of a holiday weekend is inexpensive even though it is during peak season... try a midweek nite just a week later and i'm sure you'll see rates spike substantially higher. 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.
  9. I am able to get the details of this one now: 3.5* Downtown Detroit (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $106/nite with: Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> Detroit Marriott At The Renaissance Center or the Courtyard by Marriott Detroit Downtown would be my best guesses for this one. Given this property does not offer a pool, which the Courtyard has but the Renaissance does not, i would favor this one more likely being the Renaissance, but you should at least be prepared for either (although the Courtyard seems less likely than the Renaissance, imo) 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.
  10. True for the most part, although in NYC you want to try to go a little higher in star rating if you can (unless you're able to determine the likely hotel and you 'know' that it's a good one)... especially if you intend to BID for a hotel room since you then have no control/guess over the hotel within the zone that you may receive. Most NYC hotel rooms are small, but at the lower rating they tend to get even tinier, and at the non-chain hotels housekeeping and general upkeep can often be less than stellar. (i've stayed It depends how you define the 'best option'... it may be the most economical; but it's not going to be the most convenient. Here are some decent options and you can try to determine which you think would be 'best' based upon your needs/budget (of course you can feel free to ask questions about any of them and we will do our best to comment/advise accordingly): 3* HOTWIRE Red Hook - Brooklyn South for $112 Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Business ==> Days Inn by Wyndham Brooklyn Boro Park ... not my first choice as i don't think it will give you an 'city feel', but i included as it's the least expensive option (and you can also get a feel for what would be available at a lower price vs. if i didn't include this hotel). I don't know much about this area, but it's close to a subway station, although the commute to Times Square/Midtown would be about 55 minutes (that's a bit far to be considered convenient, imo... imagine staying by O'Hare and using the blue line to commute to Downtown). 4* HOTWIRE Long Island City for $168 Free Internet Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Business ==> The Paper Factory ... a short walk to a subway line that will have you into Midtown in about 20 minutes. Hotels gets good decent reviews.... but note that there is also a $23/nite resort fee at this hotel 4.5* HOTWIRE Long Island City for $184 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Business ==> Boro Hotel ... also close to a subway and about 20 minutes to midtown. This one has the best reviews out of any of the above, here there is a $19/nite resort fee so about a $12 difference between this one and the one above; you'll have to decide if that is money well spent or not in exchange for the higher star rating and better reviews. From PRICELINE EXPRESS... 3.5* Long Island City (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $170/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Free Internet in room Fitness Center ==> Wyndham Garden Long Island City .... no reported resort fee here so a little more affordable than the last two above, similar in terms of convenience Unfortunately anything in Manhattan that gets a better than 65% recommendation from previous guests is looking to be in the mid-$200's. Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board. Let us know your thoughts/questions and we'll take it from there.
