  2. My wife really wants the Venetian and I want to surprise her with it. Not sure if I should just take the deal and see if we’re lucky or book with the actual hotel and pay like $100 more. Venetian states that it has a resort fee of $45 per night. How come Hotwire states $51? Will we have to pay $51 in Vegas?

    Disney World in May

    Welcome to Betterbidding. What would be the factors (budget, etc) in terms of deciding 5 days or 7? For example: For 5/11-16 I'm seeing on PRICELINE EXPRESS (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the links below.) 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $211 Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center >>>Best guess would be the Dolphin 4.5* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $216 Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center >>>Best guess would be the Swan Let us know your thoughts on the above and we would be happy to research other periods during this time or all 7 days if you are interested in staying the full period. 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. I'm currently seeing rates at the Doubletree at $185/nite for your dates and a PRICELINE EXPRESS offer that i believe to be the Doubletree at $145/nite (less the BB 5% off Priceline Coupon): 3* Carson - Compton - Gardena (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $146/nite with: Pets Allowed Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Free Internet in room Fitness Center ==> best guess for this property would be the Doubletree Carson If you still do a lot of bidding on priceline and at times have trouble locating the bidding page (as they are constantly moving/hiding it) be aware that we have set up the following page which you can bookmark for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com. However, if you're trying to specifically target the Doubletree for this trip bidding is probably not recommended as there is no way to target (or avoid) a specific property when bidding on PRICELINE... a PRICELINE EXPRESS offer where you have a reasonable guess that it's the hotel you're hoping for would be a better 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. Let us know whatever you decide to do for this trip. PS- it would also be appreciated if you closed your previous threads: SeaTac Priceline Bidding and New York City Priceline hotel threads with whatever you ended up doing for each of those trips. Please remember to follow-up your threads with your wins/decisions as you make them (even if you don't ultimately use PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book direct, etc) as this help 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.
  13. Glad to see you ultimately found something that works for your needs this trip. ... and thank you for the compliments on the BiddingHelper.com tool, we appreciate it. Have a great trip and thank you for closing this thread with your decision.
  14. Congratulations on your success! Nice to see this hotel (with better reviews) re-appeared and you were able to grab it while it was offered... a nice deal! Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the San Francisco Hotwire Hotel List with the new amenity set for this property.

  16. Twinscandc, Welcome to Betterbidding. 😀 Rates and inventory can vary significantly depending on dates. Please let us know your dates of travel and desired budget per night and we would be happy to offer suggestions on how to proceed. Do note that PRICELINE bidding only guarantees 1 bed/double occupancy. PRICELINE EXPRESS (where you can look for listings with a bed choice option) or HOTWIRE (where you can indicate the amount of people in the party) are a good option if there are more than 2 people. 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.

    Number of guests?

    Keep in mind that most NYC hotels are going to charge more for more than double occupancy (especially if all guests are adults) and/or rooms with 2 beds. As in the example above, the price for 2 guests isn't that bad for this time of year, it's when increasing the occupancy that the prices go beyond what you're hoping to spend. I assume all guests are adults (and none are on the cusp that could still be considered a child/teenager)?

    4* - Lake Buena Vista - 3/22-3/23

    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* Disney Area - Lake Buena Vista (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $69 Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Free Internet in room >>>I'll also guess the Sheraton. Let us know 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.
  20. Congrats on your success. Really nice win for this W property, which is right by Navy Pier. I'd suggest trying to ask for a room on a higher floor - rooms either look towards the city or lake (upgrade) and a higher floor offers a better chance of a good view in either direction. Please let me know if you have any city questions. Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  21. Congrats on your success. Excellent win for this Fort Lauderdale property and glad you're satisfied with the result. Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Are you still working on something for your Pre-Cruise Hotel or have you made a decision yet for those dates? Have a great trip.

    Need Held ID'ing Hotel

    Good luck, but i wouldn't wait too long as these prices seem fairly low for a 5* hotel in Vegas (especially for the guessed Cosmopolitan)... they could disappear at any time.

  23. Thanks for the laugh! Searching PRICELINE EXPRESS (using the PRICELINE EXPRESS tab of our BiddingHelper.com as it makes the sort/filtering so much quicker) the only 4 star hotel in the Central Ka'anapali or South Ka'anapali zone that is under $232/nite is: 4* South Ka'anapali - Lahaina (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $232/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center ==> The Westin Maui Resort and Spa, Ka'anapali would be my best guess for this one (which does appear to have a very cool pool and a water slide), HOWEVER, there is no bed choice shown so no guarantees that you would be able to receive a King bed, as well as all PRICELINE reservations only guaranteed for double occupancy (after that, it's at the discretion of the hotel) If the occupancy is an issue you could alternately use HOTWIRE which allows you to search for up to quad occupancy and guarantees sleeping accommodations for everyone in your search. Searching for your dates and 1room/1adult/2children i'm seeing: 4* HOTWIRE Ka'anapali for $239.00 Free Internet Resort Pet Friendly Boutique Beachfront Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Childrens Activities ==> which from the Maui Hotwire Hotel List matches previous reports for The Westin Maui Resort and Spa, Ka'anapal, so this would be another way to play it although costing a few dollars more (but ensures no bedding/occupancy issues) 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 ID Chicago 3*

    I think there may be more amenities than you have included above. If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper tool and look in the EASY VIEW TAB then click he green "Full Amenities" button, do you see additional amenities beyond those listed above? I'm seeing: 3* HOTWIRE Millennium Park for $124.08 Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking ==> Best guess would be the Congress, which is something I definitely wouldn't recommend. 4* HOTWIRE Millennium Park for $147.00 Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> Best guess would be the Hyatt Regency on Wacker, which I think is a much better option than the Congress - both in terms of hotel AND location - for $23 more. 3.5* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile - Water Tower for $149.00 Pet Friendly Indoor Pool Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> Best guess would be the Hilton Suites. Would the potential Hyatt or Hilton be of interest? On PRICELINE EXPRESS (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the link below.) 3* Magnificent Mile -Gold Coast (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $120 Pets Allowed Fitness Center >>Best guess would be the Inn of Chicago. I'd rather recommend the potential Hyatt or Hilton Suites above. Additionally, PRICELINE EXPRESS only guarantees 1 bed/double occupancy unless bed choice is showing with the listing.
