    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:

Hoping to get another fantastic hotel in this price range.  A hotel around Penn Station would be best so I can walk to my hotel when I arrive via train.  It's not a deal breaker though.

 

What do you suggest?

 

TIA

Please start by following-up your previous London Priceline hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip.  Please remember to follow-up your threads with your wins/decisions as you make them (even if you don't ultimately use PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book direct, etc) as this help keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone... as well as being a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your travel plans.

 

For your NYC trip above, what is your expected budget? (per nite before fees/taxes)

Below is what i'm currently seeing at/near $200/nite before taxes/fees, along with my best guess for each:

 

4.5* Downtown - Wall Street (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $201/nite with:
Pets Allowed
Fitness Center
Business Center
Restaurant
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
Free Internet
==> Andaz Wall Street-a concept by Hyatt

 

4.5* Chelsea Area (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $216/nite with:
Pets Allowed
Fitness Center
Airport Shuttle
Business Center
Restaurant
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
Free Internet
==> INNSIDE New York Nomad, which although is not directly in the MSG zone, it is only about 3 blocks away from that zone and 5 blocks from Penn Station, so should be an easy walk (assuming your luggage is wheels or is easily carried)

 

Do either of the above work for your needs this trip?

My apologies, I had some things come up and was unable to get back here.  

 

Would you mind updating the hotel choices and the amount to $300?  I would prefer closer to $200 but am willing to pay a bit more if the accommodations are poor.

 

Thanks!

I would like to book either the Westin through Hotwire or the Crowne Plaza through Priceline.  The Westin charges $30 fee so they are about the same price all in.  I am a Marriott Gold reward member so I'm leaning toward the Westin but not completely sold.  It is an older hotel but I may receive perks because of my reward status, maybe room upgrade.

 

I tried to book through Hotwire and the only hotel I see is for $248 per night for my dates in the Times Sq area.  Would you check the rates again to make sure I'm looking at the correct hotel?

 

Your help and insight is appreciated.

 

Thanks!
