  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks. I booked the room for $112. It is the Doubletree.
  3. Today
  4. Thank you. We decided to wait and see if anything else pops up.
  5. I need help identifying this hotel. It was $84 last night and I didn't buy so of course it went up to $149 this morning! On the app it says "BOOK SOON - Someone just got Hard Rock Hotel Cancun - All Inclusive!" If it's indeed the Hard Rock, we want it, but don't want to stay at the Marriott.

  7. 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.
  8. An awesome deal! Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board.
  9. 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.
  10. Last week
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.

  14. When i click that link i get the following message at the top of the search results: ... and in the search results below the message i see the $246/nite offer i listed above.
  15. Thanks, please remember to close your threads (and share your wins) so that the board remains well organized and most useful for everyone.
  16. 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.

  17. 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!
  18. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and that this property works out well for your plans. Thank you for sharing your win with the board.

  19. Congratulations on your success! Glad to hear this hotel will work well for your plans and that you're happy with the outcome. Looks like a very good deal and the refrigerator in the room is a big plus (as food/drink on the Strip in Vegas has been getting expensive) 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 good luck at the casinos.
  20. Congratulations on your success! I think this location works out extremely well for you and glad you were able to work out the right pricing.

  24. 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.

  25. Yes, but you could also include parts of Chelsea and/or Gramercy Park into this mix as well; but you should be able to reasonably identify most properties so if looking at these two other areas determine how close to a subway you will be. Using the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com tool and searching for 2rooms/3adults/2children i'm seeing the following: 4* HOTWIRE Midtown East for $107 Free internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center ==> Even Hotel Midtown East... newer hotel (and a newer hotel fitness inspired concept too) that has been getting decent reviews. The location is a bit far East, but if anyone in the family is into fitness it may be something to consider at this price point. 4* HOTWIRE Times Square for $127 Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access ==> Sheraton New York... fairly non-descript and impersonal (as it's mostly a business hotel and airline crew) but a great location just off of Times Square 4* HOTWIRE Empire State Building - Bryant Park for $129 Free internet Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center ==> Club Quarters Midtown... nothing fancy but a solid hotel that continues to get good reviews and an excellent location 4.5* HOTWIRE Midtown East for $130 Free internet Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Golf nearby Kitchenette Accessible for visually impaired ==> San Carlos Hotel... admittedly i don't know too much about this one but gets good reviews (although a little less central than the 2 above, but more central than the EVEN Hotel) 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's start with your thoughts on any of the above and we'll take it from there.

Using the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com tool to reveal hotels: 5* HOTWIRE Coconut Grove for $192 Free internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Spa services ==> Mr. C Coconut Grove is the best guess for this one Does this work for your plans this trip?

  28. Shouldn't be a problem... 95%+ of the time the hotel receives the confirmation almost instantly. In the other instances (less than 5% of the time) the reservation is faxed to the hotel, but this is an automated process that is all done electronically. Should you encounter any issues it should easily be resolved in less than 5 minutes with the hotel calling HOTWIRE with your confirmation number. Looking forward to hearing about, and helping with, your wins during your roadtrip.
