I was going through the motions of bidding and rebidding. Started with MTE at 125- rejected Added rebid zone 135- rejected Added rebid- 145- accepted! Lowest price on Starwood website was $323--significant savings! And $14 lower than my cancellable backup at the Parksouth. Tripadvisor has this W as a 3 star hotel and reviews are fairly mixed. People either LOVE it or HATE it...thus giving it an overall rating of 2.5 out of 5... Regardless, we have great memories of the W hotel and actually spent DH's birthday there a few years ago. Looking forward to returning. As always, bid through Savingsbarn!
