  2. Help ID Hotels in Oslo

    Oh, sorry for the late reply. I was too busy prior to the trip, preparing the materials for the workshop. My institution ended up booking the hotels for me, one of the travel agents that they used was able to get 6 nights of hotels at a somewhat lower rate. But as usual, thanks a lot for all your helps.
  3. Today
  4. I would basically stay at any moderate or deluxe Disney hotel if I get a good price. I just don't know how to set the Hotwire/Priceline parameters to find them. And I don't know if I am too far out. I am a bit lost ;)
  5. Did this end up being the Omni Parker House?
  6. Does not include the $28 hotel fee or taxes, so the rate is really $130 per night. Booking date: June 17, 2018 Check-in: Fri, Jun 22 - 04:00pm Check-out: Mon, Jun 25 - 12:00pm Room: 1 room (1 king bed) | 2 adults Nights: 3 nights Amenities: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access Accessibility: Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower
  7. Tried bidding at $25 but failed. Was on the road with little time so moved over to Express Deals, Ended up just booking with the regular priceline offer was slightly less than booking with Express Deals. Offer Price:$31.64/night Number of rooms:1 Room Number of nights:1 Night Room Subtotal:$31.64 Taxes & Fees:$9.13 Total Charged:$40.77 I've stayed at this property a number of times, and always bid to obtain the best deal. The front desk told me they changed hands six months ago. Began bidding following the link on Better Bidding.
  8. So looking at dates July 15-16, 2018 and come across the area above.

  12. Offer Price: $99.00/night Number of rooms: 1 Room Number of nights: 2 Nights Room Subtotal: $198.00 Taxes & Fees: $44.52 Total Charged: $242.52 This was about $25 cheaper than the next category up (3.5 stars) for those dates. It's possible this location could have gone for less, but probably not a whole lot less.
  13. Kept going up in increments, accepted at $80USD. Thanks for the help
  14. I've decided that I'm willing to pay to stay in the Mayfair/Soho area. Three options: PRICELINE EXPRESS Deals Hotwire (never booked through them) PL name your price. I've done this quite often but haven't done it internationally. I would only bid for 5 star using my free bid areas. The lowest price on PL is $314 for a 5 star. I thought about starting at $220 and working up from there. Out of the three options, which do you recommend? My highest is $275 per night. TIA!
  15. Congrats on your success. Excellent win for this property which just opened recently (https://www.cntraveler.com/story/inside-the-new-line-austin-hotel). Hope you are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List with this new HOTWIRE listing.

  16. NYC (Columbia University)

    Please start by fixing your email address associated with the board by clicking your name on the top right corner of the board and then choosing ACCOUNT SETTINGS (you'll then start to receive the requested notifications when replies are made to this thread and the emails won't be bouncing back to us) So you don't really need to stay next to Columbia University... what i think you really need is easy access to Columbia University? Your least expensive option would be: 4* HOTWIRE Madison Square Garden for $134.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> best guess here would be The New Yorker A Wyndham Hotel. The property gets mixed reviews but would be convenient since it's across the street from Penn Station where you can catch the 1 train to Columbia Another option: 4* Times Square - Theatre District (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $164/nite with: Fitness Center ==> The Manhattan at Times Square is my best guess here, with the 1 train being less than 2 blocks away You didn't mention budget so if you are willing to go a little higher than those above you can get into some really nice hotels which i'd recommend either of the following: 4* HOTWIRE Madison Square Garden for $185.00 (doesn't list any resort fee so really not that much more than either of the above... may actually be cheaper than the Manhattan at Times Square on an all-in basis) Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet ==> EVEN Hotel Times Square South is the best guess here... about a 4-5 block to the 1 train subway station (about 2-3 blocks can be done entirely underground if it happens to be raining) and the hotel gets incredible reviews with it currently rated the #14 best reviewed hotel in the city 4.5* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $194/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan which is a fairly new hotel, also right by Penn Station for easy subway access, and currently the #19 best reviewed hotel in NYC Any of the above work for your needs?

  17. Hotwire Hotel

    I'm seeing on HOTWIRE: 4* HOTWIRE Union Square West for $177.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> Best guess would be the Clift 4* HOTWIRE Union Square West for $189.00 Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Blind Accessible Travel Accessible Bathroom Accessible ==> Best guess would be the Tilden Let us know what you decide or if we can be of any further assistance.

  24. Last week
  25. Are your dates confirmed? What are you looking for in terms of hotel, as the Swan would be a more deluxe experience than 3* properties (and is also currently priced for less per nite). Also, with HOTWIRE the % discount isn't the underlying hotel, it's an average at that star rating for those dates. Additionally, in terms of trying to look for the biggest discount, a hotel may be 50% off but it may also not be the hotel experience you're looking for. I'm seeing for 9/28-30: 3* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $139.00 Free Internet Resort Shuttle Pool Restaurant Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Childrens Activities ==> Best guess would be the Pop Century Resort. Please keep us updated on what you decide. 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.
  26. 3*, Austin Tx - Downtown, 9/28-10/1 >145

    I don't think you can bid on PRICELINE since you're not willing to accept a hotel anywhere within the boundaries of any of predefined zone boundaries. Closest options i think are: 2.5* HOTWIRE Downtown Austin - Town Lake - Capitol for $108.00 Free Parking Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Kitchenette Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> best guess would be the Extended Stay America Austin - Downtown - Town Lake which is just south of the river 4* HOTWIRE Downtown Austin - Town Lake - Capitol for $174.00 Pet Friendly Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> Omni Austin Hotel which seems to hit all of your location criteria, but you'll need to decide if the slightly higher cost is worth it to have an actual hotel (link to Omni to see location) Also a little over your budget (but perhaps the included breakfast would make this worthwhile, also don't forget about the extra 5% off using the board Priceline Coupon): 3* Downtown Austin (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $197/nite with: Free Breakfast Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> best guess here would be the Hyatt House Austin/Downtown which also seems to be an excellent fit for your location criteria 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.

  28. Help to identify

    2x I'm seeing a different amenity set for the 2* property: 2* HOTWIRE Carlisle for $46.42 Free Parking Hi-Speed Internet ==> Travelodge by Wyndham Carlisle is my guess for this 2 amenity set property or for a few more dollars you could consider this 2.5* in the same zone: 2.5* HOTWIRE Carlisle for $54.00 Free Parking Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> Days Inn by Wyndham Carlisle South is my guess here 2.5* HOTWIRE Enola for $87.17 Free Parking Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Fitness Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet ==> Quality Inn Enola - Harrisburg 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.
  29. Help to identify

    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 WHAT HOTEL IS THIS and IS THIS A GOOD PRICE features). 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 2.5 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates: 2.5* HOTWIRE Secaucus - Meadowlands for $80.00 Free Parking Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Laundry Hi-Speed Internet ==> best guess for this one would be the Red Roof Inn Plus+ Secaucus - Meadowlands - Nyc 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 this doesn't work for your needs this trip let us know your maximum budget as i'm very familiar with this area)
