  3. Welcome to BetterBidding and congratulations on your success! Hope this property is convenient for your plans in the area and that you're happy with the results. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  4. I'm not sure how flexible you budget is (as i'm sure you have already learned this is an expensive time of year in NYC) but if you're wiling to go a little higher i would recommend this PRICELINE EXPRESS offer: 4.5* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $283/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> best guess for this one is the Crowne Plaza Hy36 Midtown Manhattan which is a fairly new hotel and has received excellent reviews. It is not in Times Square (which can be a good thing as it gets very crowded at times and can be difficult to walk on the sidewalk) but is an easy 10 minute walk away... so you get the convenience of being close to Times Square but not necessarily right in the heart of it. The Crowne Plaza Hy36 also has good subway access being 2 1/2 blocks from Penn Station. 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 ultimately decide and how it goes or how we can be of further help.
  5. Welcome to BetterBidding! Not an issue... just a standard disclaimer; nothing to really be concerned with here. No, these two zones are too far apart for a Kaanapali hotel to end up in the Wailea zone... but ultimately you need to look at the zone boundaries as depicted on PRICELINE's map. The hotel you win can be anywhere within the shaded boundaries of the zone on the map. Assuming you're referring to The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua this property is indeed in North Ka'anapali - Lahaina, but not all hotels offered thru the 'retail' side of PRICELINE also participate in the NYOP bidding service. However, the star rating you select when bidding on Priceline is the minimum that you're willing to accept, so in the very rare event that you were to win the 5 star Ritz Carlton with your 4.5 star bid, you would not really have much recourse. Nope, not a risk if you have only zone selected is Wailiea-Makena and you're bidding 5 stars. As per above, it comes down to the zone boundaries as they appear on PRICELINE's map. Possible, yes... but i would also consider it to be extremely unlikely. However, if this is a concern of yours then simply don't use this zone as a re-bid zone. However, there may be better options. More specifically to your trip... what are your dates of travel and what is your expected maximum bid per nite? 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. PS- as PRICELINE continues to move/hide the NYOP bidding page we have set up this site BiddingForHotelRooms.com for easy access to the PL Bidding page

    Help searching for a Toronto Hotel

    Please keep all posts for the same stay in the same thread. Once you win a hotel, use the 'ADD REPLY and REPORT WIN' button on the upper right corner of the page to edit the topic title to reflect your win and to provide the details of your purchase. This helps keep the board better organized by reducing the number of unresolved threads that don't have any follow-up or conclusion. Best guess/comments for each of the above: 3* HOTWIRE Downtown Toronto East for $128.00 Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Restaurant Laundry Hi-Speed Internet ==> from the Toronto Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for The Saint James Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member and would be my best guess for this one. This property is just off of Yonge St which is one of the main retail streets of Toronto. 4* Downtown Toronto North - Yorkville (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $164/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Kimpton Saint George Hotel which is a new property that has recently been renovated from a Holiday Inn. The location is directly on Bloor which is the other main retail street in Toronto Generally speaking (at least the 'feel' i got when i was in Toronto last year) was that Bloor was a bit more of the 'high end' retail shops whereas Yonge was a bit more day-to-day retail where the locals would run most of their errands. Other 'attractions' such as the Toronto Needle (CN Tower) and the Hockey Hall of Fame are a bit closer towards the water. Do either of the above work for your needs this trip? 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.
  11. For this HOTWIRE hotel: 4* HOTWIRE Ka'anapali for $216.00 Free Parking Free Internet Near Beach Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Kitchenette Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> best guess would indeed be the Honua Kai Resort and Spa 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 we can be of further help.
  12. Welcome to BetterBidding and congratulations on your success... an excellent deal for these dates and quad occupancy! Hope you're happy with the outcome and this property will work well for your plans this trip. For the future, don't try to use the distance to landmarks as a guide in trying to determine the underlying hotel as that information is relative to a centerpoint of the zone, not necessarily the distance to the specific hotel currently being offered. If you are hoping for a room with 2 Queen beds call the hotel and ask if this is what you can be assigned to. Note that at this property these rooms cost more than rooms with only 1 Queen bed, so If they say no, or that your room will be assigned at check-in, you can mention that you see the 2 Queen rooms sell for about $20/nite more than the one queen bedded rooms and ask if you can pay the extra $20/nite to upgrade (assuming it's worth the extra $20 per nite to you... or you can just hope that your request will be honored at check-in) Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the Boston Hotwire Hotel List with the new amenity set for this property. Enjoy your stay.
  13. Welcome to BetterBidding! For this PRICELINE EXPRESS offer: 3.5* Brentwood - Westwood (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $152/nite with: Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> i'd speculate that this is the Hotel Angeleno... i think the room type may be an error as 2 King beds in a hotel room would be a rarity and if it did exist, would not likely cost the same as the 1 Double listed below it What are your needs for this trip? 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 we can be of further help.
  14. I assume then that you would extend the check-out, making your trip 9/14-9/19? If so the best deal by far, imo, would be: 5* HOTWIRE World Trade Center - Wall Street for $188.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Childrens Activities Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> this matches previous reports for the Conrad New York which is currently the #26 rated hotels in NYC. This hotel used to be an Embassy Suites (a long time ago, it is now up to the 5 standards of the Conrad brand) so the rooms are oversized given it was built as an Embassy Suites in mind. As well, you can search HOTWIRE for 2adults/1child so you are guaranteed accommodations for your whole family (again, shouldn't be an issue given the rooms were built as suites). Another perk is, as briefly mentioned in my previous post, there is a large park right next to the hotel (and along the Hudson River) and i'm sure things for your daughter to explore. The downside is that it is not the most centrally located being about a 15 minute subway ride to midtown... but the price (not much else is in this price range no matter what the star rating or location), the 5* rating, and it being one of the top rated hotels in NYC is worth the trade-off of the downtown location, imo. Using our BiddingHelper.com tool and looking in both the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW and PRICELINE EXPRESS tabs i filters to hotels that were 3* and higher and sorted by price... this 5 star property is the least expensive that is located inside of Manhattan and rated 3 stars or better. Your thoughts? 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. If you take the one above let us know how it goes or let us know how you'd like to proceed and we will take the next step.
