Hotwire Hotel: 3* Minneapolis (Downtown) Hilton Garden Inn Minneapolis Downtown

Just won this.   Total cost $158.14.  Am very pleased since I had booked this hotel with a AAA rate at a total cost of $284 so saving $126.  Won't get my free breakfast from Hilton Gold status or points, but even if we pay for breakfast, we're still way ahead.  Was pretty sure it was the Hilton Garden Inn since amenities matched precisely with ones listed here (only minor difference was wording of "internet access" vs. "hi-speed internet")  and undiscounted rate of $139 matched the one on Hotels.com.   Hotel had 95% approval rating and 4.5/5 rating also.    

Boutique, Restaurant, Pool, Indoor Pool, Fitness, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Laundry


Used the HOTWIRE link.   Haven't been using Hotwire or Priceline much since deals don't seem to be as good lately -- is it just my experience or is there any data on this?   I do try to use other links when I book hotels on their websites.  Have a couple more hotels to book so check HOTWIRE and PRICELINE for those.

Congratulations on your success!

Nice to see you received a nice deal for this trip and are pleased with the outcome.

The deals are still there (as evidenced by this purchase) but in general hotel rates have gone up over the last few years (along with the economy and increased business travel), so while deals are still available, the actual dollar cost per room may have gone up, along with 'regular' hotel rates.

Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase.

For your regular rate purchases you can research and use the links at our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com which provides an excellent interface (in my opinion ;) ) to get a feel for rates for your dates and how much more/less it would cost to go up/down in star rating OR to stay closer/further from your ideal location. Once you complete a search, use the filters on the left side of the page to show only the star rating and price range you're interested in.

Enjoy your upcoming stay and thanks again for posting.
