  7. 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 HOTWIRE hotels above: 3* HOTWIRE Ka'anapali for $190.00 Free Internet Beachfront Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa ==> Kaanapali Beach Hotel 4* HOTWIRE Ka'anapali for $234.00 Free Internet Resort Pet Friendly Boutique Beachfront Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant ==> Westin Maui Although i'm curious why even the interest in the one above with a 75% recommendation when this one has a 90% recommendation, has a higher review rating, and is cheaper: 4* HOTWIRE Ka'anapali for $207.00 Free Parking Free Internet Near Beach Fitness Pool Restaurant Golf Spa ==> Honua Kai Resort my best guess here, should this be of any interest For the PRICELINE EXPRESS hotel i'm not currently seeing any 3.5* property offered in this zone when searching for your dates, are you still seeing this one on your own search? 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.

  8. Thanks for the additional info. Great, as resort fees are becoming more and more common in NYC, it's nice to see a hotel that still does not charge them. I'm very familiar with NYC, let me know if you need any help/advice in the area, one suggestion i will make that is a 10-15 minute walk from your hotel: Adrienne's Pizza Bar 54 Stone St ==> it's a restaurant (kid friendly), not a slice shop, fairly reasonably priced for NYC (except for beer, wine, and liquor which just like most places in NYC, quickly pads a check) considering the quality of ingredients. Stick with their square pizza as that is what they are most well known for. Let us know if you need any other suggestions or help planning your trip.
  9. Just want to further 'close' this thread to confirm that we have fixed the mobile link issue... should anyone have any further issue(s) with any board links please let us know. I'm rarely making purchases on a mobile/tablet so the only way for us to learn about any problems is from community feedback. Thanks again.

  11. Welcome 'officially' to BetterBidding! Unfortunately there is no magic formula as to when the 'right' time to make a purchase... our advice is to make the purchase when there is a hotel you want offered at a good price. Sometimes you will make the purchase and see the price drop further... other times you may wait and see the price increase (or worse, the hotel you want disappears entirely) Some factors to keep in mind that can effect the buy decision: -if it a good deal at current prices? No need to lock in a deal 9+ months in advance for a paltry $10/nite savings... but if your plans are firm and the savings are significant, then often better to lock in now ('a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush'). -how badly do you want the hotel that you think is currently being offered... if it disappears, or increases beyond your budget, how much worse (convenience, cost, etc) are the likely replacement options? -how much room is there for the price to drop vs. how much could it potentially increase, taking seasonal factors into consideration... for example, in Las Vegas (where rates tend to fluctuate more than any other city) if a 5 star hotel is offered at $110 it may have the possibility to drop another $10-$20 dollars but if the next move is higher is has the potential to increase $70-$90, which makes the risk/reward scenario less compelling and more reason to book sooner rather than later You're not going to 'win' by buying at the absolute lowest price each and every time, but If you follow the above key principals you should stay on the winning side of the equation and overall come out ahead in the long run. Some tools we have which can also help: RateDrop - will monitor PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE rates for your specific dates and the star rating/zone combinations you choose. If the price drops below your determined price, you'll receive an email letting you know of the rate drop RefundableRates.com - shows prices for hotels based upon very liberal refund-ability policies (usually fully refundable up until 1-3 days prior to arrival) so that if you're waiting (ie- hoping) for lower rates you can protect yourself by booking something today that you can live with, should a better deal come along with PRICELINE / HOTWIRE you simply cancel the refundable reservation BiddingHelper.com 'Good Price' button - using the 'Hotwire Easy View' and 'Priceline Express' tabs you can see regular retail rates of hotels of the same star rating in the zone, thus having a better idea of how the 'opaque hotel' offer compares to rates for an equivalent property As for your upcoming NYC trip, exactly which offer is it (star rating, price, amenities, etc) that you're currently considering in Long Island City?

  12. Sorry to hear that you had to cancel this trip... thank you for closing this thread with your decision. We look forward to helping with your upcoming NYC trip!
  13. They shouldn't if you include 2adults/2children in your search. If there was an issue i think you would win this argument with the hotel and/or HOTWIRE... but if you want to avoid the situation entirely just have one parent go to the desk at check-in while the other two wait someplace else in the lobby or start to wonder around the hotel. Also note that you can easily research/identify this property by using our BiddingHelper.com tool and in the EASY VIEW tab click the 'FIND MATCH in HOTEL LIST' where the Palazzo is listed for this property at a 100% match. 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.

  16. Can you please further reply to your Disney Swan hotel purchase indicated thru which service you purchased that hotel so we can edit the topic title accordingly, have it appear in the correct forum, and appear in our Priceline and Hotwire Calendar of Wins. For the trip above, what is your budget for this leg of your trip? If a Loews property that offers Express Passes does not appear within your budget, what is your gameplan (ie- stay at a non-Universal property, increase your budget, skip Universal this trip, etc)?

  19. Congratulations on your success! Hope you're happy with the outcome and looking forward to your trip. I've seen the casino amenity shown a few times when there was not actually one on-site, although usually it's when the hotel offers scheduled shuttle service to/from the casino, not sure if that is the case here or not (although even if it does offer this service, i think it's a very 'loose' definition of being able to list Casino as an amenity). Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this property to the Halifax Priceline Hotel List. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  20. Great, glad to see it all worked out... and appears to have been worth the effort as the regular rate at the hotel for this nite is nearly $300/nite!

  25. Welcome to BetterBIdding! I'm not seeing any 4 star hotel in the Times Square zone for $126/nite when searching for your dates... are you still seeing this on your own search? The least expensive 4* hotel in this zone that is priced at $133/nite, but it has very different amenities then what you have listed above. I'm very familiar with NYC, is there anything specific that you're looking for in a hotel for this stay and what is your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes)? Are you only willing to stay in the Times Square zone OR are other areas that are nearby while still be convenient also acceptable? 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.
