    3.5* - Downtown Minneapolis

    For this (well reviewed) hotel: 3.5* HOTWIRE Downtown Minneapolis for $93.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Indoor Pool Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet ==> The Depot Minneapolis: a Renaissance Hotel would be my best guess for this one Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board. Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  3. Welcome to BetterBidding! (and a thank you to your co-worker for helping to spread the word! ) Some info to get you started... Free Breakfast is not an amenity that is found at 5 star hotels in the US (not that uncommon in Europe, but i can think of maybe 3-4 throughout the entire US that breakfast as a free amenity). If also considering HOTWIRE i'm seeing the following that seem to meet your criteria (i've included both HOTWIRE and PRICELINE EXPRESS, as HOTWIRE seems to have a bit more inventory/options at the moment, as well as we currently have a 10% off Hotwire Coupon (expires tomorrow)): (NOTE: HOTWIRE does not have a 'Union Square' zone but is generally covered by the Gramercy Park - Nomad - Flatiron zone) 4* SoHo - Tribeca (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $168/nite with: Restaurant Free Internet available Free Internet Fitness Center ==> Frederick hotel is my guess for this one 4* HOTWIRE Gramercy Park - Nomad - Flatiron for $172.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet ==> Life Hotel Nomad is my best guess here 4* HOTWIRE Gramercy Park - Nomad - Flatiron for $173.00 Free Internet Fitness Business Hi-Speed Internet Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Handicapped Parking ==> best guess for this one would be the Avalon Hotel 4.5* HOTWIRE Gramercy Park - Nomad - Flatiron for $177.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet ==> Redbury New York is likely for this one 4.5* HOTWIRE SoHo - Tribeca for $193.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet ==> Nomo Soho is likely outcome here 4* HOTWIRE SoHo - Tribeca for $209.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet ==> Smyth, a Thompson hotel is my guess for this one 4.5* HOTWIRE SoHo - Tribeca for $212.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet Wheelchair Accessible ==> Soho Grand is my best guess for this one I will add that if you're willing to stay outside of one of the areas above, i would consider this property: 4.5* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $192/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Free Internet in room Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> this is consistent with previous reports for the Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan which is a fairly new hotel (about 2 years old maybe) and has been getting excellent reviews. It is also 2 blocks from Penn Station for easy subway access to multiple subway lines So with the above noted, you can choose one of these (confirm with us first which one you would like to go for, since there are so many i didn't do our full 'checks / confirmation' for each one, but will do so if there is one in particular that you're interested in)... or you can try bidding on PRICELINE. If you'd like to try bidding on PRICELINE you won't be able to target/guess as to the hotel you may receive prior to your purchase. Also note that if you do want to move forward by bidding on priceline (vs. one of the PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE offers above) we can suggest a strategy for you to follow, but priceline is continuing to move/hide their bidding form, so we have set up the following page for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com 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 your thoughts as to how you'd like to proceed, or any questions you may have (as i'm very familiar with the NYC area), and we can take it from there.

    Hotel help

    For this property: 3.5* HOTWIRE Union Square West for $174.00 Free Internet Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> Hotel Vertigo would be my best guess (NOTE: you could also see this result by using the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW tab and clicking the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button next to the offer) I had seen this one earlier but didn't post it since it also has a $17 resort fee, which in addition to the $174/nite room rate, put you beyond your target $150/nite budget... although our current 10% Hotwire Coupon might help make this one within reach (or the previous hotel above a better value than it was before the currently available 10% off) 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.

    Are you searching for 1adults/0children... it only appeared for me when i changed the search from the default 2adults to the 1adult (which i assume is all that you need for this trip)?

    Generally speaking San Francisco is a very 'mass transit' friendly city. The two main downtown locations are Union Square East and Union Square West, and these will likely have your most frequent bus/train service. As you get further outside of this area public transportation will still likely be do-able, but less frequent/convenient, and you would likely need to dig deeper into the hotels guessed to find out exactly just how close/convenient/frequent they are to mass transit. Starting our search for just USE or USW to see what might be available within your 3 star and higher and under $150/nite criteria: 3.5* HOTWIRE Union Square East for $147.00 Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet Blind Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> Hotel Fusion would be my best guess for this one If you wanted to go cheaper (and still have a decent rating) you would have to look further to something like the airport zone: 3* HOTWIRE SFO International Airport South - Burlingame for $117.00 Free Parking Shuttle Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet Golf Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking ==> best guess here would be the Best Western Plus El Rancho Inn. With any airport location hotel, unless there is a bus stop walkable from the hotel, you would need to take the hotel shuttle to the airport and then BART (the San Francisco subway system) to Downtown. While this is do-able, it also looks better on paper than in reality since there is always wait times for the hotel shuttle, then walking to the BART platform and waiting for the train... 10+ minutes 'here and there' can begin to add up to a significant amount of time, especially if doing it every day (or a few times a day); although it comes down to budget vs. convenience. 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 your thoughts on each of these offers (or how it goes if you take one of these) and we'll take it from there.
  12. For this offer: 4* HOTWIRE French Quarter - Mississippi River for $131.00 Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> Le Meridien New Orleans 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.
  13. I assume this is the offer that you're referring to, which i'm currently seeing for $236/nite when searching for 2adults/2children (not sure if the price changed or if you previously didn't include children when you saw the $206/nite rate): 3.5* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $236.00 Free Parking Free Internet Resort Shuttle Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Childrens Activities ==> from the Orlando Hotwire hotel list this matches previous reports for Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and would be my best guess for this one Does this work for your needs at this price? 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.

    Bidding Issue on Priceline

    UPDATE: This issue appears to be resolved (please let me know if this is not the case, as i did successfully log-in but did not go as far as placing a bid). Used our BiddingForHotelRooms.com, entered a location, and then successfully logged-in using the link on the top right corner of the page (which previously gave an error page).

Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this hotel to the San Francisco Priceline Hotel List.
