    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

This is a 4 star hotel in Toronto, part of Downtown Centre area; and room rate per night is $152. 

Amenities include: Business center, Fitness center, Golf nearby, Indoor pool(s), Internet access, Pet friendly, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Smoke-free rooms

I think it's Sheraton..since there isnt any other ~2000 review on TA (4.3) in this area; can someone help with some insights on the potential hotel name?

 

Also Hotwire displays this message:

Guaranteed hotel chain - This Hot Rate® Hotel is guaranteed to be a regional or national hotel chain. Here are few examples of chains you might get: Sheraton, Hyatt, Hilton and Intercontinental 

Has anyone ever seen this message before? If so, how accurate is the returned result/hotel?
 

My travel dates are 5/23-5/26 for 3 nights; it's a long weekend, so i think the rates are decent. Since this is my first time using Hotwire, can someone let me know if i should wait around for the price to drop? Or unlikely?

 

Thanks for reading!

Welcome to BetterBidding!

 

I believe there are more amenities 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 this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 4 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates:

 

4* HOTWIRE Downtown Toronto Centre for $152.00
Pet Friendly
Indoor Pool
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==> if this is the amenity set you're seeing with the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW, i would agree best guess for this one would be the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

Not sure if you're reading too much into this, but all this is saying is that the hotel will be a national chain.  From this aspect it is accurate, but if you're assuming that you will get one of the 4 chains above then that would be a wrong conclusion.  For example, you could receive a Westin, Marriott, etc. as these too are national hotel chains, even though not listed above.

There is no way to know if rates will stay the same, drop, or more even higher between now and your arrival.  Best advise is to weigh how much you like the hotel (based upon your/our research and guess) and if it's a good deal that makes it worth locking in today.  The other risk besides the price moving up/down is that this offer could disappear entirely and be replaced with something that you may not like as much or that is not as well reviewed.

 

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 what you decide and how it goes or how we can be of further help.
