    Need Held ID'ing Hotel

    Good luck, but i wouldn't wait too long as these prices seem fairly low for a 5* hotel in Vegas (especially for the guessed Cosmopolitan)... they could disappear at any time.

  3. Thanks for the laugh! Searching PRICELINE EXPRESS (using the PRICELINE EXPRESS tab of our BiddingHelper.com as it makes the sort/filtering so much quicker) the only 4 star hotel in the Central Ka'anapali or South Ka'anapali zone that is under $232/nite is: 4* South Ka'anapali - Lahaina (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $232/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center ==> The Westin Maui Resort and Spa, Ka'anapali would be my best guess for this one (which does appear to have a very cool pool and a water slide), HOWEVER, there is no bed choice shown so no guarantees that you would be able to receive a King bed, as well as all PRICELINE reservations only guaranteed for double occupancy (after that, it's at the discretion of the hotel) If the occupancy is an issue you could alternately use HOTWIRE which allows you to search for up to quad occupancy and guarantees sleeping accommodations for everyone in your search. Searching for your dates and 1room/1adult/2children i'm seeing: 4* HOTWIRE Ka'anapali for $239.00 Free Internet Resort Pet Friendly Boutique Beachfront Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Childrens Activities ==> which from the Maui Hotwire Hotel List matches previous reports for The Westin Maui Resort and Spa, Ka'anapal, so this would be another way to play it although costing a few dollars more (but ensures no bedding/occupancy issues) 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.

    Number of guests?

    As long as you have other options, i would avoid anything that low in NYC (yes, even with a decent user review rating). If you're willing to take the occupancy risk (which i would only do in NYC if given a specific Bed Choice and the room is designed to accommodate the number of guests in your group): 4* Lower East Side - Chinatown (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $236/nite with: Business Center Free Internet available Free Internet ==> NobleDEN Hotel is my best guess for this one ($266/nite for a room with 2 Doubles... all-in is $65 over your target budget, but that's $20/day or ~$6 per day per person, so might be worth it given your desire for this neighborhood (about 3-4 blocks from the Soho border), the higher star rating then you were originally seeking, and the 9+ user review rating Is the above, or any of the ones in AaronJB's post of interest? (i'll add that the Warwick is a very nice hotel and well reviewed property as well... great location just enough outside of Times Square that it's not too hectic (although still fairly busy Mon-Fri) yet convenient enough as a launching pad for whatever you want to go throughout the city) 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 if we can be of further help. PS- if you really want to play it safe you can have one/two people go to the check-in desk while the other two have a coffee at a nearby Starbucks, Dunkin, etc... once the one/two travelers check-in and drop off luggage, meet the other(s) at the coffee shop and either start exploring the city OR return to the hotel room with the 3 guests and walk right upstairs to the elevator.
  6. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you're familiar with this property and looking forward to your return visit. Thank you for sharing your win with the board.

    Number of guests?

    This is going to vary from one hotel to the next, but it will be 'easier' to get away with at a larger hotel (big lobby, front desk is often busy and not staring at the front door waiting for next guest to walk in, elsewhere for the 3rd guest to 'wonder' around during check-in instead of going up to the front desk, etc, etc). What are the details (dates, star rating, zone, room rate per nite, etc) of the hotel that you're looking at?

    4.5* Boutique Ft Lauderdale Beaches

    I don't see the $140/nite hotel no matter what method/link i used to search, i only see the one 4.5 star i have listed above (in our EASY VIEW tab i also see another 4.5 star property, but that one is $254/nite) Are you still seeing the $140/nite hotel? If so, are you able to click-thru and get to the booking page (vs. a message that the property is no longer available)? Are you included 2rooms in your search? The hotel i listed also has a $37/nite resort fee (just as you had mentioned) so i assume they are the same property, but i can't say for certain since i'm not able to get that one to appear. Are you interested in the W Hotel at this price... or hoping for the Atlantic? 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.

    4.5* Boutique Ft Lauderdale Beaches

    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 4.5 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates: 4.5* HOTWIRE Fort Lauderdale Beach for $150.00 Pet Friendly Boutique Oceanfront Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Spa Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> The W Fort Lauderdale would be my best guess for this one 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. PS- please conclude your previous Las Vegas Hotwire 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. Thanks!
  13. What is your budget for this trip? I'm seeing the following: 4* HOTWIRE Boca Raton for $336.00 Resort Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Spa Childrens Activities Travel Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> the Boca Raton Resort And Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort would be my best guess for this one Is the Waldorf worth it to you at this price? If not, i'm also seeing: 3.5* HOTWIRE Boca Raton for $154.00 Free Parking Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> best guess here would be the Wyndham Boca Raton Hotel Do either of the above work for your needs/budget?

  14. Welcome to BetterBidding! Sorry to hear you received a hotel that you didn't expect, but i believe this is the offer you purchased? 3* Times Square - Theatre District (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $100/nite with: Business Center Restaurant Free Internet available Free Internet If so, the amenity set above does not match the amenity set from previous reports for either the Edison or the Comfort Inn in the NYC Priceline Express Hotel List so neither of these should have been the expected outcome. Feel free to ask the board for help prior to your future purchases and we will try to help you find something that is more inline with what you are expecting.
