Thank you for those guesses. I had decided the Millenium is probably correct.  I had hoping for that Hilton Garden Inn or Residence Inn but neither seem likely.

 

I studied Priceline for this zone and don't think the common wins look interesting to me.  I will let you know if I bid Hotwire or not, and how it turns out.

What were you hoping for with the 4* HOTWIRE option?

What is it that you like about the HGI and/or Residence Inn (reviews, larger room, breakfast, etc)?

 

What is your maximum budget for this trip? (per nite before fees/taxes)

I ended up getting the University Inn at Duke elsewhere.  I decided I wanted that particular hotel's location.
