      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

Hi,

 

Great site, I've used your advice to book my stay in NYC last summer (although I don't see the post, but I did click thru your links). I am looking at booking my stay in Maui this summer. 

 

Dates: Aug. 29-Sept. 7

 

I would like your advice, I am thinking of breaking up the stay in 2 resorts (Aug 29th -3rd & 3-7th) at different resorts to experience more. This will be for our honeymoon so I'd like the 1st stay at a 4* and 2nd stay to be at a 4.5-5* (I don't mind the area - Kanapali or Walea wherever the nicer hotel and best deal is!)

 

So far the best pricing I've found is this (I compared with Hotwire rates for similar properties):

 

South Ka'anapali - Lahaina Rated 8.0 out of 10 (or higher) $194 / night (plus $182 mandatory resort fees total for 5 nights)

Pets Allowed

Restaurant

Airport Shuttle

Indoor or Outdoor Pool

Fitness Center

No Smoking Rooms/Facilities

 

My guess - Westin? 

 

Do you have a suggestion for the 3-7th? Would I do better for a 4.5* or 5* rate with Hotwire? Or does Priceline make the most sense? Thanks again for all the work you guys do!

Sorry for the change in plans but I'd like to book the first set of hotels.

 

So far here is what I am looking at:

 

4.5-Star Hotel 

Wailea - Makena Area

Rated 9.0/10

Business Center

Restaurant

Indoor or Outdoor Pool

Fitness Center

No Smoking Rooms/Facilities

 

$282

 

Im hoping this is the Fairmont, or would it be the Grand Walea? If it is the Fairmont I'd like to book tonight. 

 

Thanks!

Business Center
Restaurant

>>>When I search on the PRICELINE website, I'm seeing this listing with an 8+ rating. Guess would be the Grand Wailea.


Would this possibility be of interest or are you only looking for the Fairmont?

Sorry last question before I book. Priceline does not accept Amex credit cards but I know Hotwire does. I am seeing a slighly more expensive deal on Hotwire for a 4.5* (details below). Do you think this is also the Grand Wailea resort? If it is the Fairmont or Andaz I inclined to booking it on Hotwire and pay the increased rate but wanted you input before I book.

 

Hotwire:

$307 - Wailea - Makena

(85% recommended)

FULL AMENITIES: Resort, Beachfront hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby

I think there may be more amenities than you have included above. If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper tool and look in the EASY VIEW TAB, then click the green "Full Amenities" button next to the listing, do you see additional amenities beyond those listed above?

 

I'm seeing on HOTWIRE:

 

4.5* HOTWIRE Wailea - Makena for $307.00
Resort
Beachfront
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
Childrens Activities
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==>  Best guess would be the Grand Wailea.
