Radisson Lexington hotel is now just the Lexington Hotel, according to an email I received from them.

What was Thirty/Thirty, and then LOLA, is now King & Grove.

Radisson Lexington hotel is now just the Lexington Hotel, according to an email I received from them.

Priceline is still listing this property as the Radisson Lexington so we'll update the hotel list once they reflect the new hotel name.

Thanks for the heads-up.

It looks like Hotwire has a new zone in New Orleans: "Midtown".

Boundaries are approximately I-10 to Canal, Broad to City Park Ave. This is an area with very few hotels; off the top of my head, I can only think of a 1* or 2* property called "Midtown Hotel New Orleans". Kayak finds 5 total, including a B&B and a hostel. I tried a few different dates and couldn't find any where that new zone is available...

Priceline has split Napa, CA into two separate zones:

Napa Downtown North

4* Marriott

4* Silverado Resort and Spa

3.5* River Terrace Inn

3.5* Embassy Suites (NOTE: This is upgraded from 3* per Priceline retail product)

3* Best Western Premier Ivy

Napa Downtown South

4* Meritage Resort and Spa

4* Vino Bello Resort

2.5* Hawthorne Inn and Suites

2* Wine Valley Lodge

Note: I cannot locate the 2* Travelodge on the Napa hotel list anywhere on the Internet, including the main Travelodge website. There is a Travelodge Napa Valley, however it is in the Fairfield area, not Napa proper.

We are finishing up some work on the back-end as well as some other projects, once that is completed we will update the hotel lists with the new zones and boundaries (there are a few areas which have been re-zoned recently)

In the meantime if you need help with an upcoming stay feel free to post and ask the board for help.

Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases.

Thanks, we have updated the Hotwire Hotel List accordingly.

If you have purchased this property please post the details of your win to the board so that we can 'officially' update the hotel list with new star rating, amenities, and name change and verify the property's continued participation with HOTWIRE.

Thanks.

Also Crowne Plaza SFO International Airport upgraded from 3* to 3.5* in SFO-Burlingame zone.

A few changes here in Memphis. The old Holiday Inn Select on Poplar in East Memphis is now the Marriott East Memphis. Next door, the old Park Place next door is now a Sheraton Four Points. Also, in Midtown, the French Quarter Suites has closed and the property is now vacant. Thanks very much for this stellar site!

Cleveland Downtown upgrades:

1. The former 3.5 star Crowne Plaza, being remodeled into a 4 star Westin, is now scheduled to open Spring 2014.

2. The Embassy Suites is now closed, being converted (back) into apartments. The building was built as an apartment building in the late 1960s, and a portion of it was converted to a hotel in the late 1990s. There is such a huge demand for apartments in Downtown Cleveland now--running a 98% occupancy rate--that it makes economic sense for the owner to return the use of the 240 suites to rental apartments.

Kindly update the Hotwire section too, please.

The Westin Providence has been sold and is now the Omni Providence.

Apparently Omni is trying to collect hotels that are associated with convention centers.
