Research on HOTWIRE Hot Deals for 3 nights total:

HW 3.5 Boutique  FP, FI, for $56  (total $182.61 after $30 off, and this page suggests the last hotel was the Crown Plaza)
HW 2.5  FP FB FI for $166
HW 4 FP for $193 after $30 off

Chose 3.5* in zone 12 (Galleria)

Bid 38, decline, suggest free rebid 47

Add 6 Bid 39
Add 5 Bid 40
Add 2 Bid 41
Add 3 Bid 42, bid accepted, total price for 3 nights:  $155.52


Self-parking fee = $9 per day brings total to $182.52


Normal hotel price would be $94 per night.


So, it would have been close to the HOTWIRE hot deal with free parking.  I'm fed up with these hotels charging incessant amounts for parking, I think in areas where there are a mix of hotels, it's best to go with a known hot deal so you know how much your parking costs will be.

Thank you for sharing your win with the board.


While i dislike resort and parking fees just as much as anyone else, in some areas you just can't avoid it.  Where there are a mix of hotels that charge lots of extra and where there are others that do not, PRICELINE EXPRESS and/or HOTWIRE can be better options as you are better able to know about any resort fees beforehand and/or you can filter the results by the 'Free Parking' amenity.


Even with the parking charge at this hotel, you're still all-in lower than the all-in rate thru HOTWIRE, and very much lower than a conventionally booked room.
