Just wanted to clear up one thing... in my search for hotels in Paris, I noticed that the Melia Vendome Boutique Hotel is not in the zone listed on this list.

It is in Opera Quarter WEST, not Opera Quarter East. Reference the zone maps at priceline.com and Melia Vendome's location at Google Maps.

Priceline San Diego.



No boundary change, I don't think, just new zone names. The new names--MV East and West--are confusing and inaccurate, imo. On Priceline's map the zone now called MV-East is actually North Mission Valley and the zone called West is actually South Mission Valley. As drawn these zones should be called "North" and "South", not "East" and "West".

Hi - wanted to give you a heads up on the Sheraton East Hartford 100 E. River Dr.....this is on your list of priceline hotels...I personally have won this hotel thru priceline & this forum website. Unfortunately the have just changed the sign to Hartford Plaza Hotel which probably means Sheraton has sold off this property.....It's too bad as it is a great hotel that a lot of people report winning, as it is very clean & you almost always could win it for a very good price :)

For the 4* hotels in Nice, France, both an NH Nice and a Sofitel are listed.

The Sofitel should be crossed out. The NH Nice USED to be a Sofitel.

Apparently the property (before a Sofitel, now an NH) still participates in Priceline.

Hotwire zone change in San Diego.

The former SeaWorld-Mission Bay-Shelter Island zone is split into 1) Sea World-Mission Bay-Shelter Island (same name as before but with new smaller boundaries) and 2) Shelter Island-Point Loma.

Hotwire should remove "Shelter Island" from the first zone's name because it's misleading. Shelter Island now lies entirely within the new Shelter Island-Point Loma zone.

Sea World-Mission Bay-Shelter Island

4* Hilton Mission Bay

4* Hyatt Regency Mission Bay

4* Pacific Terrace Hotel

4* Paradise Point Resort and Spa

3.5* Catamaran Resort

3.5* Dana Inn and Marina

3.5* Hyatt Regency Islandia

Shelter Island-Point Loma

3.5* The Pearl

3* Best Western Island Palms

3* Holiday Inn Bayside

Thanks, Scott!

I use Hotwire in California a lot, so if there's a zone change in Cali I usually see it within days. Other states I don't follow as much unless I'm travelling there.

This winter I visited Florida for the first time in several years and I noticed some of the Florida hotel lists were outdated and I updated them. But I don't know if those Florida changes happened days before my visit or years. I just don't look at the Florida lists much.

Keeping the hotel lists current is an impossible, neverending task. As soon as we think we've got it right Hotwire and Priceline change something. :)
