  1. Sometimes things break... including websites. As technology evolves and customers want more features from websites, updates (some minor / some major) are needed, and unfortunately sometimes adding one feature has unintended consequences. There is usually quite a bit of QA testing that goes on, but as each person uses a website slightly differently, it's nearly impossible to account for every possible scenario before releasing an update. I can assure you that PRICELINE / HOTWIRE both want to sell you a hotel room, make it as easy as possible to book, and have the overall purchase experience be positive. It may take a few days for them to get around to it, but now that they are aware of the issue i'm sure it will be fixed soon. Hope you're enjoying the weekend away from home.
  2. Looks like the issue still exists, although i will note that if you start your search directly at HOTWIRE the CAD prices are correct (within a few dollars) within the search results page. Once you click an offer the price shows as lower (using the USD numerical value but still with the CAD currency designation)... then when you click to the detail page the 'We hate it when this happens...' message appears with the correct CAD amount. As a side note, this reminded me of my first travel to Europe 30+ years ago. The locally currency exchange rate was 1 = 1.5USD. I remember the numerical prices of everything was the same... but in reality was 50% more expensive than in the US.
  3. Yup, i see you figured out the issue... there is something wrong with HOTWIRE's currency selector and although it indicates the rates are in CAD currency, the numerical value is in USD; once you get to the check-out page the system double-checks the price vs. availability, realizes the price shown can't be booked, and adjust the price accordingly. I'll have a look in the morning and if the issue still persists i'll bring it to their attention. Thanks for the post.
  4. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see it was the hotel you were hoping for and that we were helpful in giving you the confidence to move forward. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay... let me know if you have any questions about that city that i can assist with.
  5. Reveal Hotels uses multiple methods to research hotels, the algorithm for some method(s) takes milliseconds for the server to evaluate, others can take a bit longer (in extreme situations up to 30 seconds). So if there was no 'instant ID' it just means that the method(s) that can be done in milliseconds did not work for this property, but after clicking the link if you were given a hotel name with a confidence level of 'EXCELLENT', you should be able to have confidence in this ID (it just required one of the methods that takes a bit longer to compute ) 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 how it goes, or if i can help answer any NYC questions for you, as i'm very familiar with the city.
  6. Welcome back! HOTWIRE links expire about 30 minutes after the search, so you can see by clicking the link above that it redirects to HOTWIRE's home page and we can't see any details of this hotel offer. Can you please provide the dates of your stay and some information about this property and we can confirm for you if it is indeed the Courtyard. Also, have you tried to use our sister site RevealHotels.com which, in most cases, will automatically identify the hotel for you. 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.

  8. Thank you for passing along this deal and for having your friend use the board PRICELINE link. Not only a nice deal, but puts the two of you within a stone's throw of each other, so should still be quite convenient for meeting up. Thanks again for the post and wishing you both a great time in Vegas!
  9. Congrats on the lower rate and kudos to you for sticking with it, continuing to check rates. We're probably 3-4 months away, but we do have plans to re-launch RateDrop which will do all of the monitoring for you! Hope your lucky streak continues in Vegas!

  15. Back in March i booked August and November flights... the first is fully refundable, the latter i get a credit to use for up to a year if i need to cancel. For August i figure i have nothing to lose, for November i know i can utilize the credit over the course of the following year (so again, nothing really to lose). Excellent rates for both!
