You can see here that the Langham is still rated 5* by PRICELINE, so they probably are no longer participating in the "name your own price" arm of their website... we've indicated the Hyatt Regency Churchill downgrade to 4 stars.


Please use this HOTWIRE and these PRICELINE LINKS: HOTELS, CAR RENTALS, and AIRFARE to begin your travel purchases

looks like the fremon hotel in the huntington beach-newport zone in orange county has been bumped to 4 stars.. that makes a BIG difference in that zone, since all the other hotels at this star rating retail at a much higher price point.

Hotwire zone change in Fresno, CA.

Fresno's Central-University zone is split. The two new zones are Downtown Fresno and University Area-Clovis.

The two reported hotels in Central-University---Holiday Inn Fresno Downtown and La Quinta Fresno/Yosemite---both move to the new Downtown Fresno zone.

No reported wins from University-Clovis zone yet.


Hotel name change in Modesto, CA.

The Red Lion Modesto is now Clarion Inn Modesto. It's Red Lion in the Hotwire and Priceline Hotel Lists.


Stockton, CA

The hotel List has a 3* Red Lion in Stockton. There's never been a Red Lion in Stockton, to my knowledge. I think this is probably a duplicate listing for the former Modesto Red Lion.
