    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

Hello,

Could you tell me what kind of room I might expect if I'm looking for something for 3 people in NYC? For example, might I wind up with a room with one bed + rollaway? Or will I typically get a room with 2 queens or a king/queen + sofa bed?

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to Betterbidding.

If you use PRICELINE, you will likely get 1 bed. If you use HOTWIRE and indicate more than 2 people (if you are indicating 3 adults, I'd indicate 3 + 1 child), you should get 2 beds, 1 + sofa or 1 + rollaway. There is no way to guarantee exact bedding.

Please provide the details of your trip if you would like assistance with your stay (date/s, budget, desired zones, etc.)

Thank you for using the board's HOTWIRE or PRICELINE links to start your purchases and searches.

I am in the same situation, looking in Manhattan a room for 3 people.

But I want the Murray East Hill Suites because I know it has a kitchenette or kitchen.

My dates are July 2 - July 16 2014

What do you recommend me to get that hotel and the best price?

I also know I want 1 bedroom not the studio with 2 beds

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Betterbidding.

The issue with PRICELINE and HOTWIRE is that the trade-off for the discounts that both services provide is that you do not choose the hotel (PRICELINE bidding) and are only offered one hotel per star rating per area (PRICELINE Express, HOTWIRE). Both services require flexibility and there is no guarantee that you will get a particular hotel via PRICELINE bidding or that it will even be offered as an option or that it has discount inventory at all for your date/s.

You also, with few exceptions, are not given the choice of room. Both services guarantee a regular/non-upgraded room.

If you are flexible in terms of hotel and room, please start a NEW TOPIC and post the exact details of your stay (date/s, desired budget, acceptable zones, how many in your party and any other details.)
