  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

  8. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and this works well for your plans on this expensive nite for hotels almost everywhere. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay, and Happy Valentine's Day.
  9. 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. 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. Please follow-up your threads whatever you decide to do for this trip (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. Lastly, if you decide to forgo PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, note that our current Priceline Coupon also works on pre-paid 'regular rate' hotels as well.
  10. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and this property will suit your needs for this trip. 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... and maybe a cheesesteak (or two!)

  12. 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. We took are of this for you, but in the future there should be a GREEN button on the top right and/or bottom left of the page 'ADD REPLY and REPORT WIN'... this will give you a form to use to report the hotel win as well as add any details of your purchases in a reply. 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). Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  13. An awesome deal! Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board.
  14. Welcome to BetterBidding! I'm local to the area so feel free to ask any other questions you may have, but some thoughts/suggestions: You don't really need (or perhaps want to) stay as close as possible to Times Square as you will likely spend far less time there than you think... what you really want, imo, is a midtown hotel that is close to a subway station (and ideally with multiple subway lines at that station). This way you can easily get to Times Square as well as most other places in the city that you intend to visit. With the above noted, in addition to the Parker New York which you have found, i'm seeing the following: 4* HOTWIRE Madison Square Garden for $158 Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel ==> Stewart Hotel... used to be the Affinia Manhattan up until a few years ago at which point it was renovated and became the Stewart. Not the fanciest hotel in NYC, but recent reviews are solid, it's a bit easier on your budget, and the location is excellent (right across the street from Penn Station so multiple subway lines to get you just about anywhere you need to go) and is also walk-able to Times Square. 4.5* Midtown East (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $189/nite with: Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> San Carlos Hotel... a bit less convenient than the one above but reviews are excellent. The location is certainly do-able, but do keep in mind you're giving up a little in terms of location for the quality of hotel. 4.5* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $200/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Crowne Plaza HY36... another hotel with excellent reviews, around the same price as the Parker and San Carlos, so another one to consider. Fairly new hotel (about 2-3 years old) that has a great location (2 blocks from Penn Station and less than a 10 minute walk to Times Square) and as i mentioned, gets terrific reviews. 5* HOTWIRE Times Square for $179 Free internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired ==> InterContinental Times Square... good location if trying to be close to Times Square and want to say you were at a '5 star' hotel, but i think some of the other hotels above (Crowne Plaza HY36) offer a better value 4* HOTWIRE Midtown East for $138 Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom ==> Doubletree Metropolitan... a little to far east to be considered ideal, but still do-able. The hotel is clean but otherwise a bit tired and 'meh', but the price is pretty good if budget is your primary concern. Any of the above of interest? 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 your thoughts (or how it goes if you take one of the above) and we'll take it from there.
  15. Congratulations on your success... looks like a nice, inexpensive, deal for the nite. Nice to see you were able to figure this one out before purchase and it was the hotel you were expecting (for the future our the BiddingHelper.com's new feature in the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab can do the work for you ) Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  16. GREAT... congratulations on your success! Nice to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and that you're happy with the results. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay and have fun at the parks!
  17. You can easily ID these hotels with the newest feature from our BiddingHelper tool... 1) search at BiddingHelper.com 2) click the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab 3) hover your mouse (or click if on mobile device) the 'FIND MATCH from HOTEL LIST' Using this method for each of the above: 4* HOTWIRE Midtown East for $162 Free internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center ==> Even Hotels New York Midtown East 4* HOTWIRE Midtown East for $173.03 Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Business center Internet access ==> Doubletree Metropolitan New York... although earlier on a previous search i did see the Affinia 50 offered for around this same price, so if the Doubletree or Affinia 50 are of interest, be sure to let us know before moving forward so we can see if we can get the Affinia 50 to re-appear and highlight the difference between the two hotels to ensure you get the one you're hoping for Is the Shelburne the only hotel you're willing to stay at for this trip or are you open to other options? If you're open to other hotels, let us know what you liked most about the Shelburne, and what your needs are for this trip, so we can help find something that best meets your goals.

  18. Thanks, please remember to close your threads (and share your wins) so that the board remains well organized and most useful for everyone.
  19. No, as the difference is that i was searching for 2 adults... in many areas searching for more than double occupancy will increase the price (and sometimes even cause different hotels to be offered, so important to include this information in your post to ensure we research the correct hotel). Based upon searching for 3adults/0children: 4* HOTWIRE Santa Barbara Beach for $149 Free internet Pet friendly Near beach Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center ==> Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara 3* HOTWIRE Santa Barbara Beach for $142 Free parking Free breakfast Free internet Near beach Pool(s) ==> Mason Beach Inn I now (when searching for 3 adults) see the same prices as you.

  20. GREAT... glad to hear you had a nice stay and that your friend was impressed! Often airport hotels get 'tired' quickly since there are so many single nite stays (7 different guests in 7 nites creates more wear and tear on a room than 1 guest for 7 nites) so it's nice to hear that this is a good one. We'll expect to see her around in the board in the future. Thanks for the follow-up!

  22. Congratulations on your success! Glad to hear this hotel will work well for your plans and that you're happy with the outcome.

  26. I agree that this is likely to be the Crowne Plaza: 4.5* HOTWIRE Commerce - Citadel Shopping Outlets - Bell Gardens for $96 Free parking Free internet Casino Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Spa services You could also consider this one which i also believe to be the Crowne Plaza 4.5* Commerce Casino - Cudahy - Pico Rivera (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $92/nite with: Free Parking Fitness Center Business Center Casino Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool As far as your question regarding to take one of the above or wait, unfortunately there is really no way to know, but some things to consider: -if this hotel disappears entirely how many other options do you have around this same price? (when taking into consideration the convenience of this hotel for your plans, parking fees at other hotels, etc) -given the regular rate at this hotel for your dates is $189/nite i would lean more towards taking the 50% discount and be happy with it, not trying to hold out for even more, as 50% savings is still a very nice deal (although if, as per my first point, i'd be more willing to roll the dice and hope for the best if there were multiple other hotels that could work just as well for my plans should this offer disappear entirely... but it sounds like this hotel works very well for your plans and is the one you really want/need) 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.
