Awsome forum! From the ammenities I could tell looking at the hotel list exactly what hotel it was before booking it.

Hotel website was $255 no refund rate, priceline $199, hotwire $192. When I clicked to buy on hotwire, I entered info + credit card number. Finally on the last click, it denied me because room was "no longer available". Sounded like a bait and switch. Same thing happened on the $199 priceline (published) page.

30 minutes later, the same room showed up on hotwire for $153. Done! Funny, hotel website and priceline rates did not change. Score, $40*2 additional savings!

I'm happy, I'd call that 40% off published rate, with no guess work involved! Now, I hope they dont treat hotwire guests as second class guests...

Congrats on your success and thank you for the compliments on Betterbidding. :)

Fantastic deal for this property! It's not too unusual for HOTWIRE listings to run out of inventory before being removed ("no longer available" message) , but I think this may have been an instance of an adjustment to inventory and you lucked out with the new price. Either way, certainly a great price for this Affinia property.

Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's HOTWIRE link.

Enjoy your stay.

Hotwire ammenities match the ammenities list on this site:

Fitness Center, Restuarant, Business Center, High Speed Internet, SPA

Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is the day before my trip, and the hotel website is now $148/night, less than my Hotwire price a couple weeks ago! Thought I was being clever... Oh well, at least I locked in the lower price weeks ago. I just hope they dont discriminate against hotwire customers.

Thank you for the follow-up. Sorry to hear that the price has dropped a bit, but I think you managed to get close to the likely floor (and thankfully got a better deal than the original $192 you saw.)
