I'm looking for a hotel in the houston medical center area, and I'm finding indications that the Medical Center Holiday Inn is now "Wyndam Houston Medical Center Hotel and Suites." Same hotel, different name. I wasn't sure where to post this to provide that info. I hope this is helpful!

The Baltimore Priceline zones have changed

The there is no longer an Inner Harbor-Downtown zone by itself. BWI is now separated (see below).

Here are the zones now:


BWI East

Baltimore East

Baltimore Stadiums

Baltimore West


Glen Burnie

Harbor East-Fells Point

Inner Harbor-Camden Yards

Mt Vernon

Owings Mills

University Area

This can help narrow down hotels

Betterbidding currently has:




Glen Burnie

Inner Harbor-Downtown

Mt Vernon

Owings Mills

University Area

I made a mistake a couple of times bidding Inner Harbor-Camden Yards due to this recent switch (I didn't get it). I wanted Harbor East-Fells Point, unlike before.

The Renaissance, for instance, is now part of just Downtown.

Any word of updates to this on the site?

New Priceline NYOP zone for Washington DC - "Capitol Hill South" which appears to be a split off of the Capitol Hill - Convention Center zone. Everything south of Independence Avenue is in the new zone, which would include these hotels:

3* L'Enfant Plaza Hotel

3* Holiday Inn Capitol

3* Residence Inn Capitol Hill

3* Capitol Skyline Hotel

3* Courtyard by Marriott Washington Capitol Hill / Navy Yard

I noticed on the Hotwire list of hotels it still shows Holiday Inn on the Beach. I don’t believe this win is now possible as the property is now being called Destin Sands Beach Resort. They were originally going to reopen around Memorial Day, but that has been delayed until Spring 2014. Major renovations happening!! Sounds like it will be fabulous but I am sad it will no longer be an affordable Holiday Inn!!
