  1. Congratulations on your success! Looks like a very nice deal for this trip and glad to see you're pleased with the outcome and looking forward to your NYC visit. You're also near my often recommended Ess-A-Bagel (Third Ave at 51st St) which has one of the best bagels in the city, makes for a nice, and relatively inexpensive, breakfast among local NYers. Thank you for sharing your win and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  2. 4* hotel Rome

    Please include all the details of your search in your original post as changing the number of rooms and/or guests can sometimes effect the search results. ... and here is an updated link that should already be configured for two rooms: 4* Spanish Steps - Trevi Fountain (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $159/nite with: Airport Shuttle No Smoking Rooms/Facilities If we give a guess (and don't add italics that it's a guess or some other caveat that we are uncertain) then we have a good deal of confidence in our research, but we can't see the hotel names either . You have been around the board long enough to know that we have a very good track record, and in this instance should we be wrong (although i don't expect that to be the case), how much downside do you have given that the hotel (as indicated by PRICELINE EXPRESS) gets a 9+ review rating from previous guests (as well as a 9.8/10 for location which seems to be a primary attribute for your plans 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. (and if your friends are doing the booking or booking on their own please ask them to stop by the board and click the links here to begin their purchase... either in this thread or the QUICK QUOTE search box on the top left corner of the board (the logos within the search box are click-able as well) Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  3. Welcome to BetterBidding! Please also include the room rate per nite in your future posts as it helps make it easier for us to locate the same hotel among the offers when we replicate your search (especially when, such as in this instance, there are two 4* hotels offered in this zone with the same amenity set). When searching for your dates the one i think you're referencing above: 4* Union Square East - Nob Hill (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $161/nite with: Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess would be the Villa Florence Hotel San Francisco on Union Square This one has the same amenities, is priced a big higher, but has an 8+ user review rating: 4* Union Square East - Nob Hill (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $186/nite with: Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> Orchard Hotel would be my best guess here ... and i'm also seeing this one: 4* Union Square East - Nob Hill (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $173/nite with: Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet ==> Orchard Garden Hotel my guess here Both the Orchard Hotel and the Orchard Garden Hotel get very good reviews and probably worth the few extra dollars vs. the Villa Florence, imo. 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.
  4. 4* hotel Rome

    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. If the only issue was the hotel requesting your credit card details by fax why not still consider this HOTWIRE offer above which is well under your budget and $100 less than your back-up reservation at the same hotel (which i think is a better deal even though it didn't include breakfast... i'd get breakfast locally at a nearby bakery or coffee shop which for two people could probably easily be done for under $100 over 3 days) For the PRICELINE EXPRESS offer above: 4* Spanish Steps - Trevi Fountain (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $159/nite with: Airport Shuttle No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> best guess would be the Spagna Royal Suite 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.
  5. Congratulations on your success! Nice to see that this win came easy for you and that you're happy with the outcome. Thank you for sharing your win with the board. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay.
  6. Help selecting Disney On-site hotel

    The same hotel is still available for your revised dates: 4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $191.00 Resort Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Spa Childrens Activities Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> still a match for the Walt Disney World Swan and would continue to be our 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.

  7. 4* hotel Rome

    So we know more about what you're looking for... What made you cancel the back-up hotel? What is your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes)? Exactly which zones, by PRICELINE and/or HOTWIRE name are you willing to accept? 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. It's been a week since we posted that offer so it wouldn't surprise me if the deal is gone. However, it looks like the hotel is still available but that the price has gone up a little... 5* The Strip - Central West (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $287/nite with: Pets Allowed Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Casino Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Indoor or Outdoor Pool ==> i believe this one to be the Cosmopolitan It looks like the other 5 star hotel in the zone actually went down in price a bit: 5* The Strip - Central West (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $172/nite with: Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities ==> still believe this one to be the Bellagio if the Cosmo is now out of your budget 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.
  9. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received the the hotel you were hoping. Unless a thread is closed by a moderator (which is done very rarely and there would be a RED button indicating CLOSED) you can always add an additional reply to a thread, for example, after your trip if you wanted to comment about the hotel and your experience there... editing a previous post can be done up to 45 minutes after submitting. However, unless the amenities have changed, we already have them from above: Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add this hotel to the Hotwire Hotel List. Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. Enjoy your stay and enjoy the Blues Festival!
  10. Nicely done... an excellent decision, imo. A short walk from your hotel i recommend this place for breakfast one morning as they have one of the better renditions of a 'true' NYC bagel: Best Bagel and Coffee   225 W 35th St (on the north side of 35th St between Seventh and Eighth Avenues) Have a great trip and let us know if you have any NYC questions that we can help with!
  11. Help selecting Disney On-site hotel

    For your new set of dates i'm seeing: 4* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $190.00 Resort Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Tennis Spa Childrens Activities Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking Roll-in Shower ==> from the Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Walt Disney World Swan so this would be my best guess here Does this work for your needs?

Enjoy your stay and this leg of your trip.
  13. What exactly is it that you're looking for in a hotel for this trip and why the Chelsea zone? What is your maximum budget? This property is now priced at $177/nite ($169 with our Priceline Coupon), has more stars than any of the hotels above, is still the #4 reviewed property in NYC, and if you think Chelsea is the area you need to be is just 3.5 blocks from the border between the MSG and Chelsea zones, so very convenient to that area as well (in addition to being more centrally located and easy access to subways than many hotels in the Chelsea zone). If not this property in what way does this fall short of your needs (so we can have a better idea of what hotel may work better 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.
