  1. Congratulations on your success! Good to see you're pleased with the results and looking forward to your trip. I wouldn't be too concerned with the lack of a Free Breakfast being listed as this is a standard amenity at all Holiday Inn Express properties, so you too should receive breakfast just as any other guest would. As i often say on the board: "Hotels need to have all the amenities they show... but they don't need to show all the amenities they have". Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List with the new amenity set for this property. Please click the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  2. Downtown Chicago

    From the original list of hotels above this one: ... is not only the highest rated, gets 4.5/5.0 TA rating, but is also the least expensive. So why not this one?? I have stayed here and it was a very nice hotel, imo. It's about a 25-30 minute walk to Millennium Park so i wouldn't want to stay too much further north than here, but it's a very nice walk since you're basically passing all of the stores/shops of Michigan Avenue along the way. I don't know specific parking garages nearby but i'm sure you'll find one separate from the hotel (parking at any hotel in the city will be expensive... a private garage less so), but to re-iterate, i wouldn't focus on the parking as there are garages all over the city. If you really need to watch your budget and the parking expensive is going to be 'make or break', you can always drop one person off at the hotel with luggage and have them check-in while the other person goes and parks the car at a more remote location with the cheapest parking (and the walks or takes a bus back to the hotel)... assuming you're not going to need your vehicle until you depart the city (at which point you do the same in reverse... go and retrieve the car while the other person checks out of the hotel and waits in the lobby with the luggage). If you do end up at the Sofitel there is an excellent Lou Malnati's deep dish pizza place that is an easy walk and for a 'high end' meal Gibson's is right down the block as well.

  3. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and that you're looking forward to your arrival later in the week. Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  4. Please update the Hotel list

    Did you purchase this hotel? If so, can you please add a reply to this thread the room rate per nite (before taxes/fees), dates of your stay, and the amenities that were associated with the property and shown before your purchase., dates of your stay, and amenities that were associated with the hotel and shown prior to your purchase... we can then add this property to the Priceline Hotel List as well as update the topic title which will then also add a link to this thread in the Priceline and Hotwire Calendar of Wins and Priceline Maps.

Thanks.
  5. If you wait and hope for something different to come up i would not be surprised to see the deal above disappear, so if you do like the deal above i would suggest making a decision sooner rather than later. PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE offers can disappear at any time!

  6. 4* NOB HILL ($114)

    This HOTWIRE property (to get the full amenity set you will need to use our BiddingHelper.com tool and in the EASY VIEW tab click the GREEN 'Full Amenities' button next to this offer): 3.5* HOTWIRE Union Square West for $129.00 Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Kitchenette Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> from the Hotwire Hotel List this does match previous reports for The Donatello Hotel and would be my best guess for this one You could also consider: 4* Union Square West (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $131/nite with ($160 for room with 2 Double beds): Pets Allowed Fitness Center Business Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Hilton San Francisco is my best guess here 4* Union Square East - Nob Hill (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $164/nite with: Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Orchard Garden Hotel which gets great reviews... $180 for a room with 2 beds Any of the above work well with your plans?

  7. Downtown Chicago

    I wouldn't let this be a guiding factor in a large city such as Chicago... it should be easy enough to find a local bakery, donut shop, etc. (Eatily??) where you can get coffee and a baked good for about $10 or less for two people... and if you look closely at the hotels above, the 4* properties without breakfast seem to be a much better value (at least a $10 better value, imo) than those that offer Free Breakfast. Also note that Free Breakfast is not typically an amenity that is associated with 4+ star hotels... i would seek both breakfast and parking separate from the hotel.

  8. Unfortunately i don't have any insight into this property, and with 0% reviews from HOTWIRE customers this may be a new hotel recently added to the HOTWIRE system. What is it that you're looking for in a hotel for this trip and what is your maximum budget?

  9. 4* NOB HILL ($114)

    When searching for 6/30-7/3 it looks like the offer above increases in price a little: 4* HOTWIRE Nob Hill for $128.00 ($151 for 2 Queens) Pet Friendly Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf ==> if this is what you're seeing my best guess would be the Stanford Court San Francisco Does this work for your needs this trip? (if not, what is your maximum budget for this leg of your trip... per nite before fees/taxes) 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.

  11. For 9/16-9/21 how about: 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $139/nite with: Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> best guess for this one would be the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel ... or you could book the same for 9/16-9/24: 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek <-- CLICK HERE and (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $152/nite with: Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> best guess for this one would be the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel It looks like things being to get very busy on the nite of 9/24 and then the nite of 9/25 becomes even more difficult, possibly due to 'Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party' on 9/25... so unless moving 3 times during your stay is something that you would be willing to do, you may want to consider the above for 9/16-9/24 which would then leave you with only one move for the 'difficult' nites of 9/24-9/26 (and even perhaps consider a Disney Springs hotel that offers transportation to the parks for these 2 nites which may have more availability and be more affordable).

  13. 4* NOB HILL ($114)

    To confirm, you're still at the Holiday Inn for the nite of 6/30 so that is not part of date range you need above? For this leg of your trip do you need accommodations for 3 people? If so, how old is your son?
