    WDW Hotel

    Thank you for your help. I can book a better price through Disney direct. I appreciate it.
  3. Welcome to BetterBidding! 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. For the hotels above: 4* Dupont Circle - Woodley Park (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $98/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> Washington Marriott Wardman Park is the best guess for this one 4.5* Capitol Hill (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $86/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center ==> best guess here would be the Kimpton George Hotel PRO TIP: use our BiddingHelper.com tool to research as besides enabling you to see both PRICELINE and HOTWIRE with just one search, there is more consistency among the amenities. For example, some of the amenities that are listed on the first page of the priceline search results (such as Handicapped Rooms/Facilities) are never mentioned on any other page... we list the amenities that are seen throughout. Any questions feel free to ask. 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. Good luck and let us know what you decide and how it goes.
  4. Congratulations on your success! Hope this property works well for your plans and you're happy with the outcome. Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this hotel and amenity set to the Houston Priceline Hotel List. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.

Please use our BiddingHelper.com tool and post the amenities from the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW and PRICELINE EXPRESS tabs there as they are more consistent with our hotel lists as well as providing other benefits (which i'll expand upon further below)... For the PRICELINE EXPRESS property: 4* Downtown - Pike Place - Waterfront - Stadiums (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $163/nite with: Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center ==> Silver Cloud Hotel - Seattle Stadium is my best guess for this one For the HOTWIRE offer: 4* HOTWIRE Downtown - Pike Place, Waterfront, & Stadiums for $152.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> best guess for this one would be the Edgewater Hotel Note that when using the EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com there is a GREEN 'What Hotel Is This?' button that will automatically guess based upon the four selections provided.

    Disneyland 4.5 *

    My guess is that you're probably not in the right ballpark price-wise, but if you want to give it a try... When bidding 4.5* in the Anaheim region you have 16 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. Select 4.5* Disneyland Bid $60, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $65, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $70, 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 add re-bid zone... Bid $98, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $100 NOTE that PRICELINE has been making it more difficult to location the Name Your Own Price bidding form on their website so we have set up the following page for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com Any questions feel free to ask. 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.

    Welcome to BetterBidding! When using the EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com tool you will: 1) see the full set of amenities (which can assist in hotel research/identification) 2) when HOTWIRE shows a 'Guaranteed to be 1 of 4' the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button will identify the hotel for you Using the method(s) above i'm seeing the following when searching for your dates: 4* HOTWIRE Center Strip - T- Mobile Arena for $97.00 Resort Pet Friendly Casino Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> best guess for this one would be the Park MGM Las Vegas 4* HOTWIRE Center Strip - T- Mobile Arena for $113.00 Casino Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> New York New York Hotel and Casino is my best guess here Do either of these work for your needs this trip?

  11. Thanks for a great website. Here's a tip for travelers to downtown Sacramento. If you get a stay at the Hyatt Downtown, Citizen, or Sheraton Grand on the weekend (after 4 p.m on Friday, must leave before 6 a.m Monday), you can park a few blocks away at: https://www.cityofsacramento.org/~/media/Corporate/Files/Public-Works/Publications/Parking/EastEnd-FAQ.pdf The price is $2. You will have to drop your bags at the hotel in advance or drag them a few blocks. This is a parking lot for State employees but opens to the public on the weekends. I used to work here so that's why I know about it. I feel it's safe and have left my car overnight but park at your own risk. Please check the latest information before your trip as I can't guarantee it will always allow overnight parking. You get a token upon entry that you use on exit. You can't beat the price!
  12. Nax, Welcome to BetterBidding! Please start a NEW TOPIC for your own trip and we will assist you there. In your post please also clarify if you're looking to Name Your Own Price on Priceline or if there is a specific PRICELINE EXPRESS deal that you're looking at. If the latter, please also include the full details of the offer (star rating, city, zone, room rate per nite, dates of your stay, and amenities associated with the offer) 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.

    WDA hotel help

    Welcome to BetterBidding! I'm not seeing any on-site Disney properties within your budget for your dates... what is the best price you're able to find thru conventional booking channels for an on-site property? If nothing available within your budget would you increase your budget or stay off-site? Is it the extra magic hours and transportation to/from the parks part of your desire to stay on-site? If so, would a Disney Springs property that offers these perks work for your plans or it has to be an on-site 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. Let us know the information above and we'll take it from there.

    Looking for 5* hotel on Vegas strip 2/1-2/4

    The best time to book is when you see a great deal, as it may not be there the next time you search, but i think you first have to determine what a great deal is... have you researched prices (use our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com); i'm seeing 5 star casino properties in the $300 area, so looking for a 50% discount over a weekend may be a bit of a reach given it's not ultra-slow season (if you're not aware you have a 50K person convention that ends the day before you arrive and some may stay a day later... and a 78K person convention the day after you leave and some may come early). If you're not looking for any 5 star hotel (casino, lively, etc) i think you're likely looking more in the $200 area than the $150 area. Nobody can say if prices will come down, or move higher, between now and your trip, but rates in Vegas more more quickly than any other place in the country, which is why when you do see a good deal you need to be ready to grab it. Our RateDrop service will monitor rates for your specific dates from both PRICELINE, HOTWIRE, as well as we 'regular retail rates' (if/when the regular rate at a hotel that you're interested in drops in price, it would be a good time to immediately do your search again to see if 'opaque' rates have dropped as well) 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 you'd like to proceed and we'll take it from there.
  20. Congratulations on your success! A great rate for this truly 5 star hotel! The Palazzo/Venetian are a favorite of mine as well, although i am looking to try out the Wynn/Encore at some point... we spent some time there on a trip last year and i was starting to warm-up to the feel of the place. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay... and good luck in Vegas!
  21. Congrats on your success. Definitely a great win for this Milwaukee 4*! Glad you are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
