    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

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

BWI East

Baltimore East

Baltimore Stadiums

Baltimore West

Downtown

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:

BWI

Stadiums

West

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?

Just a heads up, but I believe hot Springs under the "Pinned Hotwire Hotel List - "A" States" belongs in Arkansas and not Arizona. Hope this helps.

Should be all fixed now... thanks for letting us know.

I have also updated the Hotel Indigo to the new hotel name, Hotel Bollero.

Thanks again.

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!!

In your post please include the star rating, city, zone, hotel name, room rate per nite, dates of your stay and amenities shown before your purchase... you can still view all of this information by going to HOTWIRE and clicking the MY ACCOUNT link near the top right of their home page.

Thanks!
