  2. The Hotel Wailea for $379 sounds pretty good from Hotwire actually. If I were to *try* for that same hotel on Priceline do you think there is a chance of bidding below $379 (say in the $350 range) to get it? Since the Hotel Wailea is cheaper than the Four Seasons and there are only the two 5* on Priceline in Wailea, I'm guessing whatever successful bid would ultimately end up being the Hotel Wailea. I guess I can just try to bid and see what happens... Thanks again!

  4. I'm not sure how flexible you budget is (as i'm sure you have already learned this is an expensive time of year in NYC) but if you're wiling to go a little higher i would recommend this PRICELINE EXPRESS offer: 4.5* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $283/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> best guess for this one is the Crowne Plaza Hy36 Midtown Manhattan which is a fairly new hotel and has received excellent reviews. It is not in Times Square (which can be a good thing as it gets very crowded at times and can be difficult to walk on the sidewalk) but is an easy 10 minute walk away... so you get the convenience of being close to Times Square but not necessarily right in the heart of it. The Crowne Plaza Hy36 also has good subway access being 2 1/2 blocks from Penn Station.

  6. I'm seeing on PRICELINE EXPRESS (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the link below.) 4.5* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<<<--- CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $129 Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool >>>Best guess would be the Swan. It's not showing resort fee, but there have been some infrequent instances of listings not showing resort fee when there is one so if this is the Swan I would still expect a resort fee. Let us know what you decide or if we can be of any further assistance.

    Looking forDisney Hotel

    Some options that appear to meet your needs: 3* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $132/nite with: Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> likely the Disney's Art of Animation Resort... although slight chance of Disney's All-Star Movies Resort 3* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $124.00 Free Internet Resort Shuttle Smoke Free Pool Restaurant Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Childrens Activities ==> Disney's All-Star Movies Resort 3* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $133.80 Free Internet Shuttle Pool Restaurant Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Childrens Activities ==> Disney's Art of Animation Resort 3.5* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $171.00 Free Parking Free Internet Resort Shuttle Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Childrens Activities ==> Disney's Coronado Springs Resort Just a bit over your budget: 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $187/nite with: Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel 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.

    Help searching for a Toronto Hotel

    Please keep all posts for the same stay in the same thread. Once you win a hotel, use the 'ADD REPLY and REPORT WIN' button on the upper right corner of the page to edit the topic title to reflect your win and to provide the details of your purchase. This helps keep the board better organized by reducing the number of unresolved threads that don't have any follow-up or conclusion. Best guess/comments for each of the above: 3* HOTWIRE Downtown Toronto East for $128.00 Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Restaurant Laundry Hi-Speed Internet ==> from the Toronto Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for The Saint James Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member and would be my best guess for this one. This property is just off of Yonge St which is one of the main retail streets of Toronto. 4* Downtown Toronto North - Yorkville (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $164/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Kimpton Saint George Hotel which is a new property that has recently been renovated from a Holiday Inn. The location is directly on Bloor which is the other main retail street in Toronto Generally speaking (at least the 'feel' i got when i was in Toronto last year) was that Bloor was a bit more of the 'high end' retail shops whereas Yonge was a bit more day-to-day retail where the locals would run most of their errands. Other 'attractions' such as the Toronto Needle (CN Tower) and the Hockey Hall of Fame are a bit closer towards the water. Do either of the above work for your needs this trip? 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.
  11. Welcome to BetterBidding and congratulations on your success... an excellent deal for these dates and quad occupancy! Hope you're happy with the outcome and this property will work well for your plans this trip. For the future, don't try to use the distance to landmarks as a guide in trying to determine the underlying hotel as that information is relative to a centerpoint of the zone, not necessarily the distance to the specific hotel currently being offered. If you are hoping for a room with 2 Queen beds call the hotel and ask if this is what you can be assigned to. Note that at this property these rooms cost more than rooms with only 1 Queen bed, so If they say no, or that your room will be assigned at check-in, you can mention that you see the 2 Queen rooms sell for about $20/nite more than the one queen bedded rooms and ask if you can pay the extra $20/nite to upgrade (assuming it's worth the extra $20 per nite to you... or you can just hope that your request will be honored at check-in) Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the Boston Hotwire Hotel List with the new amenity set for this property. Enjoy your stay.
  12. Welcome to BetterBidding! For this PRICELINE EXPRESS offer: 3.5* Brentwood - Westwood (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $152/nite with: Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> i'd speculate that this is the Hotel Angeleno... i think the room type may be an error as 2 King beds in a hotel room would be a rarity and if it did exist, would not likely cost the same as the 1 Double listed below it What are your needs for this trip? 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.

  14. I assume then that you would extend the check-out, making your trip 9/14-9/19? If so the best deal by far, imo, would be: 5* HOTWIRE World Trade Center - Wall Street for $188.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Childrens Activities Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> this matches previous reports for the Conrad New York which is currently the #26 rated hotels in NYC. This hotel used to be an Embassy Suites (a long time ago, it is now up to the 5 standards of the Conrad brand) so the rooms are oversized given it was built as an Embassy Suites in mind. As well, you can search HOTWIRE for 2adults/1child so you are guaranteed accommodations for your whole family (again, shouldn't be an issue given the rooms were built as suites). Another perk is, as briefly mentioned in my previous post, there is a large park right next to the hotel (and along the Hudson River) and i'm sure things for your daughter to explore. The downside is that it is not the most centrally located being about a 15 minute subway ride to midtown... but the price (not much else is in this price range no matter what the star rating or location), the 5* rating, and it being one of the top rated hotels in NYC is worth the trade-off of the downtown location, imo. Using our BiddingHelper.com tool and looking in both the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW and PRICELINE EXPRESS tabs i filters to hotels that were 3* and higher and sorted by price... this 5 star property is the least expensive that is located inside of Manhattan and rated 3 stars or better. Your thoughts? 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. If you take the one above let us know how it goes or let us know how you'd like to proceed and we will take the next step.

    Disney hotel? Swan Aug 31-Sept 3

    4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $133/nite with: Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> likely the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel but you have the same issue with the bed types Do you see any PRICELINE EXPRESS hotels in this zone that offers two beds in the room (or some other room configuration that can accommodate 2a/2c) and is within your budget... or do see something thru HOTWIRE when searching for 2adults/2children?

    For this HOTWIRE hotel: 4* HOTWIRE Union Square East for $149.00 Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> from the Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for The Stanford Court San Francisco Hotel and would be my best guess for this one (also confirmed by the 'What Hotel Is This' feature in the EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com tool ) Does this work for your needs this trip?

    Bidding help please NYC Sept.

    You can still share (and support the board using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links so that we can be here for when you do need help) Nobody can say if rates will come down or move even higher between now and your arrival, but i will add that you are traveling at what is considered to be the start of peak season in NYC. If you do choose to wait you can use our RateDrop service to monitor rates and let you know if anything drops to within your price range. Let us know if / when you'd like to proceed and we'll take it from there.
