  2. Congratulations on your success. Although the price had gone up, glad to see you're pleased with the deal and outcome. Our BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW can usually indicate which one it is. In the future you could see which ones are suggested by HOTWIRE and then compare to one chosen by BiddingHelper (and the Bidding Helper has tabs to both the 'regular' Hotwire page and the EASY VIEW, so can do all of the above all on the same page and with just one search). If you have any suggestions on how to streamline this process even further please let us know (you can send me a PM) and we will see what we can do about implementing. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. 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. Have a great trip!
  3. Good thoughts. NYOP was a great gig while it lasted. Priceline and Hotwire both need to have some decent savings to make it worth not doing a cancellable reservation somewhere else. Regarding your thought about using the phone as a baseline: I was working on a Hotwire purchase on and off, the last couple of days. I was waiting for an appointment and decided to bring Hotwire up on my phone, with data. And it was different. Most importantly, it told me the Mystery Deal was one of TWO not of THREE hotels, and it showed them to me. These bids were otherwise exactly the same except the method of opening Hotwire. I don't know if the Hotwire phone app would be yet somehow different again.
  4. Yes, thank you for closing this thread with your decision. 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.
  5. Yesterday
  6. We always use the amenities from our BiddingHelper.com tool as they are designed to work with our systems. Even though the hotel was as we predicted, glad to hear the refund went smoothly... if you need help with a replacement property feel free to start a NEW TOPIC. 2x
  7. Congratulations on your success... your first win! Great to see you received the hotel you wanted and are looking forward to your trip. If you've never stayed at the Palazzo before it's a treat,5 star and first class all the way. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great trip... and good luck in Vegas!
  8. If you read a few posts above, PRICELINE has reconfigured their page once again, we are looking to see if any viable options, but will take at least a few days of research/testing. You can subscribe to this thread (button on top right of page) as we will post a reply here if/when we are able to get it working again. I will add, as i did above, that recently bidding has only been beneficial for one nite stays and/or 2.5 star and below... for stays of 2+ nites and 3+ stars, our Priceline Coupon can bring the costs very close to the 'right' price when bidding (and gives you the added benefit of knowing some details about the hotel and/or figuring out the name beforehand). 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.
  9. We have updated our code, thank you for helping us discover (and fix) this issue, this HOTWIRE will no longer be associated with the Riviera. What is it exactly that you are looking for in a hotel for this trip, i gather you're seeking something that is on-site, but are you necessarily looking at the 3 star rated hotels only... what is your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes) for this stay for an on-site property? 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.
  10. Welcome to BetterBidding! Sorry to hear you didn't receive the hotel you were expecting, hopefully this will work out just as well for your needs. In the future feel free to ask the board for help before your purchase and we can usually figure out which one you may receive, or you can also use our BiddingHelper.com tool in order to research/identify hotels. 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. Enjoy your stay.
  11. Last week
  12. I would agree with Thereuare that you don't have to be right by Times Square to easily get to a show, etc., in a timely fashion. We took our family to New York several years ago. We stayed mid-town East and were happy with the location. Regarding two rooms: I presume you know that Priceline only guarantees beds for 2. You did not share details about your traveling plans. If you are a family of 4 and would normally share a room to save money, be aware that Hotwire WILL guarantee beds for up to four guests, but ONLY if you select 4 guests on your search. So again, if this is of interest to you, run a search on Hotwire for four guests to compare with the ones above.
  13. Congratulations on your success! Hope you're pleased with the outcome and this property will work well for your plans in the area this trip. Thank you for using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the Amsterdam Priceline Hotel List with the details for this hotel. Enjoy your stay.
  14. I'm not sure how large your conference is, but based upon Valentine's Day along, your budget is going to be difficult on an all-in basis. In fact PRICELINE EXPRESS doesn't have any 4 star hotels that are under $200/nite all-in. Have you had a look at the BiddingHelper.com HOTWIRE EASY VIEW as there are some 4 star properties there within your budget that maybe will be close enough to the Fairmont? 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. Sometimes when there are two hotels of the same star rating in the same zone PRICELINE / HOTWIRE will alternate showing one vs. the other (i'm sure it has to do with some testing 'behind the scenes' to see which converts better)... as i do remember i had to change my search yesterday to 3/7-3/8 in order to get this same offer to appear. Have a great trip.
  16. Welcome (officially) to BetterBidding... your first post after 10 years as a member! Sorry to hear you received a hotel that you didn't expect, but did you buy directly from the RevealHotels.com page? There are actually TWO 3.5 star hotels offered in this zone for your dates and both are priced at $59/nite, i'm guessing that you likely repeated the search at a different time and assumed it was the same hotel since it was priced at the same $59/nite? I'm fairly confident that the first one is indeed the Doubletree, and i'll speculate that you bought the second one which turned out to be the Sheraton. If you check your email confirmation does it show an Indoor Pool, as i don't believe the Sheraton Chalet would qualify to use the Indoor Pool amenity... guests can use the Indoor Pool at the Sheraton Plaza next door, but as this is not 'on-site' and requires a brief walk outside (and who wants to do while wet and in a bathing suit this time of year?). I think you would have a good argument to have HOTWIRE cancel this reservation if it doesn't work for your needs. Hopefully you can make this work for your needs, but if not and you do pursue trying to cancel the reservation, let us know how it goes on the basis of the hotel not having an Indoor Pool directly on-site. For your future purchases please remember to use the links directly from the board or on page from our search tool to avoid confusion between two hotels that may look alike. Enjoy your stay.
  17. No problem, we're happy to help! For this offer: 4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $255 Free internet Airport shuttle Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Golf nearby Children's activities ==> Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is my best guess for this one 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 we can be of further help.
  18. Did you cancel the trip for 1/4-1/8 or is this an additional trip? If you did travel at the beginning of the month please let us know what you ultimately decided for that trip. For your October travel plans: 4.5* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $429 Free internet Resort Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Golf nearby Spa services ==> Disney's Grand Floridian is our best guess for this one 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 we can be of further help.

  21. This is in reference to the last person who booked a hotel of this same star rating in the zone... it has nothing to do with the hotel that is currently being offered.

  24. Congratulations on your success! Hope you're happy with the results and this property will work well, and be convenient, for your plans in the area.

Once this button is used it disappears which is why you don't see it any more (as we just used it to edit the topic title to reflect your purchase).
