  1. Identifying 2 3.5 Star Hotels

    Best guess / comments for each (be careful to match up the amenities exactly as there are multiple hotels in this zone and star rating around the same price): 3.5* HOTWIRE Hotel Zone - Convention Center for $79.00 Free Internet Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Laundry Hi-Speed Internet ==> the Aloft Cancun is my best guess here 3.5* HOTWIRE Hotel Zone - Convention Center for $79.00 Free Parking Free Internet Resort Beachfront Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Childrens Activities ==> my best guess for this one would be the Krystal Cancun 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.

  3. Do you have any idea what hotel this might be??

    Always use the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW tab and click the GREEN 'Full Amenities' button next to the listing to get the amenities... it's the easiest way to copy/paste to your post and puts all the amenities in a format that is best for us. I assume this is the one you're referring to: 3* HOTWIRE Busch Gardens - University of South Florida for $85.00 Complimentary Breakfast Suite Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Kitchenette ==> the Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa-USF/Near Busch Gardens has been seen with this amenity set but at the 3.5 star level... i don't see anything suggesting that it has been downgraded, but i'm going to speculate that has been the case Since i'm unsure of the one above you may also be interested in this property which is about the same price (probably a few dollars less on an all-in basis) and gets excellent reviews: West Wing Boutique Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member 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.

  10. Hotel Help

    Welcome to BetterBidding! 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 each of these listings, 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 each: 3.5* HOTWIRE L.A. Live - Staples Center for $166.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet ==> not certain, a guess would be the Freehand Los Angeles, but i'm not sure 3.5* HOTWIRE Downtown Los Angeles for $132.00 Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking ==> from the Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Doubletree By Hilton Hotel Los Angeles Downtown and that 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 what you decide and how it goes or if we can be of further help.
  11. Congratulations on your success! Glad to hear this will work out perfectly for your plans and that you're happy with the outcome. Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Enjoy your stay.
  12. Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your win with the board! This property is very close to 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. Can you please add a reply to this thread with the amenities HOTWIRE shows for this property, including any 'accessible' amenities, when viewing this purchase using the MY ACCOUNT >> MY TRIPS link on the top right of their home page. Note that the cancellation insurance only covers certain conditions (mostly related to health related issues)... not because you change your mind, decide not to travel on that day, etc. 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. Thanks, enjoy your stay.
