    July 10-13

    I just updated the previous thread. We are willing to accept any star rating and no real maximum budget, we are just gathering information at this point and seeing our options. We will have two adults and three kids.
  6. Most who come to NYC pay a LOT for a hotel room, and when paying more they expect more, but they don't necessarily realize just how expensive NYC is (including hotel rooms). Given it is frequently the most they have ever spent on a hotel room (in any other city) they have high expectations, and are letdown when the room is one of the smallest they have ever stayed in. They may feel 'ripped off' but the reality is just that NYC is much more expensive, and rooms are much smaller, than in just about any other part of the country. At the 3 star level in NYC your friend should expect a basic and clean room. If there are serious problems then s/he can try to resolve with the hotel and/or call PRICELINE to get them involved, but any issues would need to be tangible as opposed to not liking the decor, the hotel being dated, etc. Now that you have found BetterBidding have your friend post here in the future or ask for help with your own trips. 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.

    Washington DC White House Area 5*

    I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature). If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 5 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates: 5* HOTWIRE White House for $175.00 Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> from the Washington DC Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Sofitel and that would be my best guess for this one This information is reference to the last person who bought a hotel of this star rating in the zone, not necessarily in reference to the underlying hotel that is currently being offered. So this does tell you that The Jefferson is now a 5 star option in this area, but does not give you any insight as to the underlying hotel for this offer. What is it that you're looking for in a hotel for this trip and what is your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes)?

  8. Congratulations on your success! Hope you're happy with the results and this hotel will be convenient for your plans this trip. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. A reminder that if you ever have trouble finding the bidding page for priceline (as they are constantly moving/hiding it) we have set up BiddingForHotelRooms.com so that the bidding form is always quickly and easily accessible. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Have a great stay.
  9. Last week
  10. Welcome to BetterBidding! (and a thank you to your co-worker for helping to spread the word! ) Some info to get you started... Free Breakfast is not an amenity that is found at 5 star hotels in the US (not that uncommon in Europe, but i can think of maybe 3-4 throughout the entire US that breakfast as a free amenity). If also considering HOTWIRE i'm seeing the following that seem to meet your criteria (i've included both HOTWIRE and PRICELINE EXPRESS, as HOTWIRE seems to have a bit more inventory/options at the moment, as well as we currently have a 10% off Hotwire Coupon (expires tomorrow)): (NOTE: HOTWIRE does not have a 'Union Square' zone but is generally covered by the Gramercy Park - Nomad - Flatiron zone) 4* SoHo - Tribeca (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $168/nite with: Restaurant Free Internet available Free Internet Fitness Center ==> Frederick hotel is my guess for this one 4* HOTWIRE Gramercy Park - Nomad - Flatiron for $172.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet ==> Life Hotel Nomad is my best guess here 4* HOTWIRE Gramercy Park - Nomad - Flatiron for $173.00 Free Internet Fitness Business Hi-Speed Internet Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Handicapped Parking ==> best guess for this one would be the Avalon Hotel 4.5* HOTWIRE Gramercy Park - Nomad - Flatiron for $177.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet ==> Redbury New York is likely for this one 4.5* HOTWIRE SoHo - Tribeca for $193.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet ==> Nomo Soho is likely outcome here 4* HOTWIRE SoHo - Tribeca for $209.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet ==> Smyth, a Thompson hotel is my guess for this one 4.5* HOTWIRE SoHo - Tribeca for $212.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet Wheelchair Accessible ==> Soho Grand is my best guess for this one I will add that if you're willing to stay outside of one of the areas above, i would consider this property: 4.5* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $192/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Free Internet in room Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> this is consistent with previous reports for the Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan which is a fairly new hotel (about 2 years old maybe) and has been getting excellent reviews. It is also 2 blocks from Penn Station for easy subway access to multiple subway lines So with the above noted, you can choose one of these (confirm with us first which one you would like to go for, since there are so many i didn't do our full 'checks / confirmation' for each one, but will do so if there is one in particular that you're interested in)... or you can try bidding on PRICELINE. If you'd like to try bidding on PRICELINE you won't be able to target/guess as to the hotel you may receive prior to your purchase. Also note that if you do want to move forward by bidding on priceline (vs. one of the PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE offers above) we can suggest a strategy for you to follow, but priceline is continuing to move/hide their bidding form, so we have set up the following page for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com 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 your thoughts as to how you'd like to proceed, or any questions you may have (as i'm very familiar with the NYC area), and we can take it from there.
  11. Congratulations on your success! Hope this works well for your plans for the nite and that you're looking forward to your stay at this well reviewed property. Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us add this hotel to the Fort Myers Hotwire Hotel List. Have a great trip.

    Hotel help

    For this property: 3.5* HOTWIRE Union Square West for $174.00 Free Internet Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> Hotel Vertigo would be my best guess (NOTE: you could also see this result by using the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW tab and clicking the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button next to the offer) I had seen this one earlier but didn't post it since it also has a $17 resort fee, which in addition to the $174/nite room rate, put you beyond your target $150/nite budget... although our current 10% Hotwire Coupon might help make this one within reach (or the previous hotel above a better value than it was before the currently available 10% off) 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 what you decide and how it goes or how we can be of further help.

    im new on this

    So let's take a different approach... why not the guessed Kimpton Epic hotel? What is missing from this property that would make this an ideal choice? I've stayed at this Hyatt many years ago and while it was a nice hotel, we enjoyed our stay (pre-cruise as well), and it served our needs well... but the pool area is not really anything special.
