Please assist with identifying these hotels. Have decided to take my son and niece to San Diego, will go to Legoland for a day, Zoo, SeaWorld and Coronado Island. All of the area's seem acceptable for what we are trying to do but definitely want to try to figure out the hotels and then will might try to name my own price, but want to find out my Max using these options.

Welcome to BetterBidding!

 

I believe there are likely more amenities for some of these properties 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 each of these listings, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above?

To confirm, these dates are correct... a 24 nite trip?

If you decide to bid on PRICELINE how do you ensure that you'll receive a room that can accommodate 2adults/2children (since all PRICELINE reservations are only guaranteed for double occupancy)?  As well, note that when bidding on PRICELINE you may not necessarily receive the same hotels as above (which are from HOTWIRE) since each service may have slightly different zone boundaries, may rate the same hotel differently, or a host of other factors that can effect the outcome.

 

Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.

 

Let us know the information above and we'll take it from there.

Oh that is wrong I meant to put travel dates of 8/3 - 8/7. 

I am fine with not getting same hotels on Name Your Own Price, I just meant to establish a limit  for my bidding before I would just go with a HotWire hotel. Unless we find a great deal and like a hotel, there definitely is value to having idea of what you are getting.

I guess there is always a first time, but I have never had an issue at the 4 Star hotels name your own price with getting double beds and checking in with 2 children, but definitely will keep that in mind. 

 

I will definitely use the site links to purchase Thank You

I ran it again, using the easy view

I'm not seeing a 4* in Seaport for $135 and change when searching for 2 adults and 2 children for these dates. I am seeing:

I'm not seeing the 3* for $112 in Little Italy. Are you searching for 2 adults and 2 children when you are seeing the 4* Seaport for $135 and change and the $112 Little Italy? If you search for 2 adults you will often get some different results vs 2 adults and 2 children searches.

Oh you were right I didn't have the children in that search and the $112 Little Italy doesn't come up with the children listed. The Westin and Hotel Republic may be good options, I just need to check parking costs and resorts fees.  I will update if I purchase through HOTWIRE

I was stalking prices and finally found a deal I liked, it was a PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal. 

Listed as a 4 Star Hotel  in Gaslamp Quarter South - Convention Center with a 9+ rating @ $144/night.

Amenities: Bed Choice, Business Center, Fitness Center, Non Smoking, Pets Allowed, Restaurant and Swimming Pool

There was no resort fee figured it would be the Omni and I was correct. 

Did use the board PRICELINE link and the 5% Priceline Coupon and came out to $663.44 for the 4 nights. 

 

Very happy with this property and pricing, as I was able to select 2 double beds.  Since I am traveling with my mother-in-law, son and niece I could not risk naming my own price and not getting double beds. Canceled my backup of the Hotel Republic booked through my work travel site.  They only had King beds available and I would have been sleeping on cot for 4 days, it was only $20 more so not a big savings, but the Omni is nicer, has a pool and my back is thankful.
