  5. Unfortunately i don't think you have much of a case for a refund, but i may have found you an 'out'... As per the amenity description above PRICELINE indicates that this property is Pet Friendly, but i do not think it is. Start by calling the hotel directly based upon the phone number and ask if pets are allowed. If you get the answer that 'No pets allowed' then just say thank you (don't get into it with them that you have a reservation, etc, etc)... and then call PRICELINE telling that that you have a problem as you have a pet but contrary to the description provided by them this hotel does not allow pets. Good luck and let us know how it goes... then start a NEW TOPIC and we will help you with a replacement hotel.
  6. Sedona

    If you click the '4* Sedona' link above you have 3 bed choice options: Room Assigned At Check-In - Sleeps Two Adults - 1 Bed Requested. $123/night Room Assigned At Check-In - Sleeps Two Adults $123/night Room Assigned At Check-In - Sleeps Two Adults - 2 Beds Requested. $148/nite If your preference is for 2 beds i would change the default from the first option to the second option (for the same price) which would at least remove the 1 bed preference from your reservation and you could then call the hotel after your purchase and request a room with 2 beds (no guarantee the hotel will be able/willing to accommodate your room request). If you need (vs. want) 2 beds then you can choose the 3rd option, but note that it will cost you an extra $25/nite... so you have to decide how much this would be worth to you. 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.
  7. Las Vegas in July

    Oh wow! Price look great, we are waiting to see if my boyfriend gets approved for the days off and will be booking through this site. Thanks for the help. As for the Sedona we are ready to book right away as this trip is closer than the Las Vegas one.
  8. Welcome to BetterBidding! For this HOTWIRE hotel: 4* HOTWIRE Disney Springs for $98.00 Resort Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace Disney Springs(TM) Area would be my 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.

  12. Please copy/paste amenities from the EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com tool as it will ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set for each property, as well as better format the amenities and make your post easier to read. Using the above method and clicking the GREEN 'Full Amenity Set' button to get the full list of amenities i'm seeing... For the Paris hotel: 4* HOTWIRE North of Champs Elysées - Arc de Triomphe for $121.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Spa Childrens Activities Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> if this is what you're seeing, i'm not 100% certain but i believe the Le Meridien Etoile would be a likely outcome For Amsterdam: 4* HOTWIRE Sloterdijk Station - Erasmus Park - Spaarndammer for $115.00 Free Internet Shuttle Smoke Free Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet ==> best guess for this one would be the XO HOTELS PARK WEST, but if you are interested in this property it would be cheaper to purchase HERE (confirm your dates on the landing page after clicking the provided link) 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 click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  14. Good bidding strategy?

    Since you're looking for the best hotel within your $95/nite budget, think about the following scenario (as an example of why the above strategy is flawed): Two Hotels in the zone: 4 star = $80 3 star = $60 ==> you would bid for a 4* at $55 and get rejected, then lower to a 3.5* at $55 and are rejected, then lower to a 3* at $55 and are rejected you then try a 4* at $60 and are rejected, then a 3.5* and are rejected, then a 3* and are accepted... but a much higher rated hotel was available within your budget (but you never had a chance to win that one) You're also making this more complicated than it needs to be... If your true goal is the highest rated hotel within your budget you could bid as follows: At the 4.5* level you have TEN re-bid zones. At the 4* level you have SIX re-bid zones. At the 3.5* level you have THREE re-bid zones. If you're not familiar with re-bidding please read Priceline Re-Bidding Explained and feel free to ask questions and/or confirm your re-bid zones with the board before proceeding. ALSO NOTE that in your original post you indicated that there were SEVEN ZONES that you were interested in staying in, but in your most recent post you listed EIGHT zones (so the example below uses 8 zones): Select 4.5* Civic Center South, Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, JapanTown, Marina, South of Market, USE, USW Bid $70, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $73, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $78, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $80, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $83, if rejected add re-bid zone... 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 close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Select 4* USE, USW, Civic Center South, Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, JapanTown, Marina Bid $60, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $65, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $68, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $70, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $73, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $78, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE... Select 4* USE, USW, Civic Center South, Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, JapanTown, South of Market Bid $60, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $65, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $68, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $70, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $73, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $78, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE... Select 4* Civic Center South, Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, JapanTown, Marina, South of Market, USE, USW Bid $80, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $83, if rejected add re-bid zone... 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 Now at this point if the above is rejected, we can offer a strategy at the 3.5* level up to $95 or you can consider the following: 4* HOTWIRE Union Square West for $113.00 reduces to $102 when using the board's Hotwire Coupon (code also in my signature below) Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Room Accessible ==> The Marker San Francisco, a Joie de Vivre Hotel would be my best guess for this one, which get you into a very well reviewed 4 star property for just about $7/nite more than your previously failed bids (NOTE: there is also a resort fee at this property of about $30/nite, but you could just as easily land a hotel with a resort fee when bidding as well) So let's start with the above, either try the bidding strategy proposed or ask questions if you're unsure of anything (or would like to confirm your re-bid zones)... if all of the bidding fails you can then let us know if you'd like to go for the 4* Union Square West property above on HOTWIRE OR if you'd like us to continue onward with a 3.5* bidding strategy. Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board. Good luck and let us know how it goes or any additional questions we can answer.

  17. 4* Walt Disney World - Disney Springs (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $113/nite with: Fitness Center Business Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace Disney Springs Area is my best guess for this one, however what you asked for is: ...are you willing to pay more for a different property that offers Extra Magic Hours?
