I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature).

If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 4 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates:

4* Huntington Beach for $155.00
Pet Friendly
Boutique
Near Beach
Smoke Free
Fitness
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Wheelchair Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==>  if this is what you're seeing, best guess would be the Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel

Yes and no. I don't like the resort fee but the proximity to the beach is a good thing. I think we might end up getting a room in OC to be near the event at Irvine Lake for two nights then another room in the LA area. Thanks for the help as always.

Ok,I have another one I'm looking at on HOTWIRE in Long Beach.

6/23-6/27 $125/nt

FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower

Any guesses here?Perhaps the Hyatt Centric? Sorry if I'm being a PITA.

Yes, the Hyatt Centric would be my best guess for the HOTWIRE offer above (and given the Hyatt Centric is selling for $345/nite for your dates this would be an incredible deal, imo)

Update,

 Decided to break things up as prices for Long Beach went way up since I last posted.Would have loved to stay at the Hyatt Centric but ended up getting The Duke

in Newport Beach for $119.40/nt using the BetterBidding PLE discount code.

 Seems to be a good price for this place and it's close to the event we are attending.I think next time I might bid on Costa Mesa as the Crowne Plaza seemed to be available in a PLE deal but I chose Newport Beach however we ended up near the airport not the beach.Still,the Duke is only about 15mins from the beach.

 Next year if I see the Hyatt Centric(or the other Hyatt in LB) for less than $150/nt I will jump on it.Next we'll be trying for Hollywood/Brentwood/Beverly Hills for the 25th to the 27th.

 

Once again thanks to this board for the help and the discount code.

Congratulations on your success!

Sorry to hear prices went up since you originally started this thread, but glad to see that you were able to get a good deal by SPLITTING YOUR PRICELINE BID.

 

Can you please add a reply to this thread confirming the room rate per nite (before fees/taxes) as well as (if you recall) the amenities that PRICELINE EXPRESS associated with the property and showed prior to your purchase.

Thank you for using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the Priceline Hotel List with the new name for this property (previously The Fairmont).

Enjoy this leg of your stay.
