    Miami beach

    I think I am ok with any 5 stars in mid beach. there is a hotel called COMO metropolitan, it is s 5 star hotel. I can see it on hot wire but not on price line. It is my least favourite from all the 5 stars hotels. If it doesn’t show on the 5 star search on price line, would it still be possible to get it when you bid?? I assume not??!!!!
  3. You can go to BiddingHelper.com, search for your dates, click the "Hotwire Easy View" tab to see listings for your dates and you can click the "What Hotel Is This?" button. While the $64 listing above is a bit over the $60 limit, the location is close to Disney Springs. Thank you for keeping us updated with what you decide or if we can be of any further assistance. 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.
  4. You can also monitor rates at the Couryard (and any other hotels within walking distance) using our free RateDrop service. You can also set an alert for 3.5 star hotels in this zone at a price low enough to make the commute/uber ride worthwhile. If a hotel in this zone hits that price, you'll get an email notification. 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 ultimately end up doing (even if it's keeping the hotel's wedding block rate)

    Miami, Brickell, 5 Star, February 21-23, 2019

    I don't have firsthand experience with either hotel nor what your plans are during this pre-cruise stay so difficult for me to say what is 'better' (NOTE: for the future we also run Pre Cruise Hotels... please let your fellow cruisers know) The rate at the Epic seems good vs. current prices, but so does the following which is just above the Brickell zone and closer to the port: 5* HOTWIRE Downtown - Port of Miami for $238.00 Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> JW Marriott Marquis Miami is my best guess for this one (and just as well reviewed as the Kimpton Epic, as per TA) If cost is a concern (it doesn't appear to be but i'm just trying to give you options): 5* HOTWIRE Downtown - Port of Miami for $181.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Near Beach Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet 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 ME Miami by Melia... $50/nite cheaper and still 5 star rated but reviews not as good 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 you ultimately decide to do (even if it's stick with your current reservation) or how it goes if you take one of the above OR how we can be of further help.

    Disney Resort 4/20/19-4/26/19

    Lucky4LeafClover, Welcome Back to BetterBidding! In the future please YOUR THREADS with whatever you decide to do for your trip (even if you don't end up using PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book a regular rate hotel, etc) as this helps keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone, as well as being a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your travel plans. As for your question above, sometimes HOTWIRE hotels (and PRICELINE EXPRESS too) will show a Bed Choice option which allows you choose the specific room class or configuration. If this is not shown, then the room is booked 'Run of House' meaning that it will be assigned at check-in based upon what is available; generally speaking you should expect a 'standard' room... upgrades can, and do, happen but it's not something that you should count on. Is the Animal Kingdom even showing thru HOTWIRE for your own dates of travel? If you need help with an upcoming trip please start a NEW TOPIC and include the details of your trip (dates, budget, acceptable zones, desired star rating, etc, etc) along with any hotel offers you want us to research. 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. Congratulations on your success! Nice to see you received a great deal at this centrally located property and are pleased with the outcome. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.

    4* Orlando FL (FEB 26 - MAR 1 2019)

    The 'problem' with NYOP is that you can't target the Visitana (or avoid any other hotel)... you have to be willing to accept any hotel in the zone at the star rating (or higher) that you bid. With our BiddingHelper.com tool it's easy to filter, sort, etc. Searching your dates and in the PRICELINE EXPRESS tab: -place checkmarks next to 'Intl. Drive - Convention Center - Sea World' and next to Universal Orlando Resort (select the 'ONLY' next to one of them and then check mark the other) -select 3.5 stars and higher top of offers click the PRICE link to sort the results by price ==> the above will show you all 3.5* and higher offers in these two zones, sorted by price, showing the least expensive option at the top: 3.5* Intl. Drive - Convention Center - Sea World (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $131/nite with: Free Parking Business Center Free Internet available Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center ==> Vista Cay Resort By Millenium is my guess here (although i'm assuming over your desired budget) You can 'play' with the above by adding/removing zones and easy see you're least expensive options (it loads very fast after the initial search) You can also do the same using the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab, and combine this with the current 10% off Hotwire Coupon (expires today) you may find something there of interest as well. PRO TIP: use the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button 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 let us know how we can be of further help.
  14. Happy to help. If the above aren't what you are looking for, what alternatives are you considering? Cheaper hotel + savings towards express pass? Let us know your thoughts and we would be happy to research other options in the area. 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.
  15. Congratulations on your success! Looks like a very nice deal for these dates and hopefully it will work well for your plans while in the area.

Enjoy your stay.

    5* North Strip 8/15/19-8/19/19

    For the HOTWIRE results below i searched using BiddingHelper.com and for 1room/2adults/2children (to get closer to your 'true' occupancy and to potentially not include 4adults which may increase the price... one you make a decision you can see if there is a price difference between 2adults/2children vs. 4adults). Your original request for the Palazzo appears to now be available for $175/nite (less 10% when using our Hotwire Coupon😞 5* HOTWIRE Center Strip - Grand Canal Shoppes for $157 (2 Queen room for $176/nite - 10%) Free Parking Resort Suite 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 ==> best guess for this hotel is the Palazzo I do believe the Park MGM is also available thru HOTWIRE but for a 2 Queen room (not necessarily a suite): 4* HOTWIRE Center Strip - T- Mobile Arena for $124.00 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 here is the Park MGM Priceline Express has this offer: 4* The Strip - Southwest (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $85/nite with: Restaurant Airport Shuttle Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center ==> this too i believe to be the Park MGM and one of the room types offers a 'suite' for $169/nite, however, it is not clear if this is the Nightingdale suite that you are referring to or some other type of suite (or if the 'standard' for this type of suite is 2 Queen beds, i would think that the standard for most suites is more typically 1King bed) Why not the interest in the Palazzo and/or Venetian... you're assured of 2 Queen beds (plus an extra couch), it is a higher rated hotel than the Park MGM (one of the top hotels in Vegas, imo), and exactly what you originally set out for and within your budget.

  18. There is a conference of Orthopaedic Surgeons from 3/12-3/16 with 32K attendees and the conference is at the Venetian.

    Fam of 5 Disney area this weekend?

    It looks like something is going to have to 'give'... either star rating, 1 room instead of 2, budget, or zone. Searching for your dates for 1room/2adults/2children the least expensive 4 star or better hotel in the Disney Springs or Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek zone is: 4* HOTWIRE Disney Springs for $168.00 Free Internet Resort Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Spa Childrens Activities Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress is best guess for this one As you can see two rooms at this price would put you over budget... i did give a quick look and based upon the room description it doesn't look like the standard rooms here have a pullout sofabed (if you decided you were wanting to try and 'sneak' all 5 of you in under one room). Is going down to the 3.5 star level an option? Any zones other than Disney Springs and Bonnet Creek an option? 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.

    Trying to get a Disney Hotel

    If you're looking to Name Your Own Price on priceline their form is getting harder to find as they continue to move/hide it, but we have set up the following page for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com However, as per AaronJB's comments above, if you're specifically looking for a Disney property this is property not the best option since there is no way to target a Disney property... HOTWIRE or PRICELINE EXPRESS would be your better bet. Does this work for your needs and budget?
