  1. PRICELINE EXPRESS purchase Amenities: Free internet, free parking, free breakfast, airport shuttle, non-smoking, pets allowed Room price : $46/night Rooms: 2 Nights: 1 Room subtotal: $92.00 Taxes & fees : $22.98 Total Charged: $114.98 I believe this is an addition to the Priceline Express DTW hotel list.
  2. We actually had a 2 night stay booked through Hotwire for this night and the night before in Mission Viejo but United changed our flights and we ended up on a 6 am flight. We decided to stay out in Mission Viejo anyway and then head into the city late Saturday night, turn in the rental car and sleep by the airport. Using the 1 day sale "secret rate" email we got the Hilton. Tried searching on another computer without going through the email just to see if there really is a difference and it was $6 higher that way.

  3. Been bidding for about a week and rates seem to be a bit higher for this one night stay than recently reported. Priceline Express has 3.5* for $73 and Hotwire is showing $78 for same amenity set. In my most recent kick at this today it went like this: Bid 3.5* DTW $46 - rejected Added Allen Park, bid $51- rejected Closed browser Bid 3.5* DTW and Taylor $56 -received counteroffer for $78 Added Allen Park, bid $61 -accepted. Offer Price: avg. per room, per night $61.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $61.00 Taxes & Fees: $15.91 Total Charged to Card: $76.91

  5. Wow feel like we stole this one. Had the $20 off one day only email as well so the rate including taxes is only $58! Bye bye cancellable back up.

  6. I noticed that your hotel list shows this as 3* but it is 3.5*.

  7. Haha I hit those links at least a dozen times this weekend trying to get this trip nailed down.
  8. This was for 2 rooms, 6 people. We`ve been really lucky over the years with Priceline and Hotwire. This one is less than thrilling but it`s my own fault. It`s at the tail end of a 16 person family reunion cruise over New Year`s that`s costing the earth (which is why we NEVER normally travel over the holidays) and I definitely jumped at the price for this one. In the end you really do get what you pay for. 3* for this property just seems like a real stretch but it is what it is. :) We will make the best of it.

  10. Looks like a new addition for your Priceline Canada list. Started bidding 3.5* at $72 and got counter offer of $94. Closed browser and opened new window. Bid 3* at $64 and got counter offer of $81. Closed browser again. Bid 2.5* at $64 and got another counter offer of $81. Waited 24 hrs. Bid 3.5* at $79 rejected. Bid 3* at $72. Accepted. Offer Price: avg. per room, per night US$72.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: US$72.00 Taxes & Fees: US$17.41 Total Charged to Card: US$89.41
  11. One night precruise. This must be a very busy weekend in the Ft Lauderdale. Rates are quite high. Started bidding yesterday at $56 using 3* FLL airport, downtown, beach, airport north and to be honest, because rates are so high we really didn't care where we ended up. Went as high as $69 yesterday. Started again tonight and saw Hyatt Place Plantation on Hotwire for $99. Bid 3* West Plantation $71 - rejected Added Downtown $74 - rejected Added Airport North $76 - rejected Added Airport $78 - rejected Added Beach $79 - accepted Hyatt Place Plantation Obviously the only true rebid was Airport North but as I said we didn't care where we ended up as much as we cared about getting a good price. Summary of Charges Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $79.00 (USD) Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Guests Per Room: 2 Number of Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $79.00 (USD) Taxes and Fees: $17.07 (USD) Total Room Cost: $96.07 (USD)
  12. Used the BB HOTWIRE link. I had been looking off and on the last couple of days and the 3* kept changing. I had one that was recommended 50% of the time, another at 95%, and this one with complimentary breakfast at 90%. Today I kept getting only the 50% but then tried searching for 3 people instead of 2 and got this one. Also had a hot Dollars credit from a Hertz car rental in LA that became a bit of a debacle so that lowered the price. Amenities: Complimentary Breakfast, Fitness Center, Pool, Business Center, Laundry Facilities (self-service), High-Speed Internet Access, Golf Nearby Rate per night: 55.00 Nights: 1 Rooms: 1 Tax recovery charges & fees: 10.15 Subtotal:$65.15 HotDollars: -$28.90 Total: $36.15
  13. Tried what seemed like a million combinations before landing this one. I was trying the old trick for this area, of bidding the 2 1/2* to try to land the 3* Hyatt Place. I've been successful with that many times before. Originally I was trying for the night before with two of us bidding on separate accounts and adding rebid zones. Eventually we switched over to try 3 1/2 star in Novi, and using all the rebid options we had bid up to $52 and didn't get so much as a counter offer. We decided to switch dates to Sept 1st and bid the following: 2 1/2* Livonia - bid $39 - rejected, counter offer of $48 Added Plymouth - bid $41 - rejected, no counter offer Husband took over bidding on his account. Bid 2 1/2* Livonia $42 - accepted at Courtyard. Offer price - $42.00 Taxes/fees- 12.41 Total chgd - 54.41 Used the PRICELINE link about a zillion times today :)
  14. We did not end up booking this hotel. We took advantage of a Travelzoo offer in Long Beach instead. Thanks for the assistance anyway.
