  1. Sorry, once you click through to booking, the following accessibility amenities appear: Accessibility Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Accessible parking Roll-in shower Also, although I was wary of the hotel, our stay was pretty good. Since we couldn't find anything south of $150/night anywhere else, it was worth paying what we paid. I wouldn't stay here for much more than $90/night, though. Pros: Really friendly and helpful staff, who did not treat us like second-class citizens because we booked on hotwire Good location (about 10 minutes drive from OB and Gaslamp) Lots of restaurants within walking distance, including a Phil's BBQ that always had a line around the building, and a DuPars that was excellent Rooms had been mostly refreshed, and our room was huge Cons: The neighborhood was a little sketchy (it was next to a Home Depot that had day laborers hanging out all day and a rescue mission) The rooms were motel style, with the sink outside of the bathroom The flimsy curtains did not keep the sun out -- If you are staying here, ask for a room that does not border Kemper
  2. This hotel is on your hotwire list as a 2.5* hotel, but hotwire has apparently upgraded it to 3*. I'm a little disappointed, as some reviews have been terrible, but I'll give it a chance. When I booked, amenities listed were: Free Internet Pet friendly Airport shuttle Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access
  3. After approximately 8 million attempts to get a hotel in downtown Los Angeles on a weeknight, I finally ended up getting the Luxe City Center Hotel. Never been there, but we're going to an event at the Staples Center, so it looks perfectly situated. ETA: My bad, Priceline actually lists this as a 4* hotel, but I got it when I was bidding on 3.5*. I can't figure out how to edit the title.
  4. I realize this is months after your rental, but I'm wondering whether your Alamo rental was listed as "Location Counter in airport; Shuttle to car." I understand that Alamo is actually off the airport - wondering if Hotwire reflected that. Thanks.
  5. Oh I can't believe, I just booked it too! We literally must have booked at the same time. Used the HOTWIRE Link as well. Thanks for the advice about booking direct. I check out the hotel website to see if it's worth my while to book the other two nights there, or if I should book on HOTWIRE. Thereuare, I booked from 5/6-5/7 and it was $113. Total with taxes and fees it is $132.56. ETA: After looking at booking direct for 5/7-5/9, Hotwire was still a better deal. I got those nights for $115/night. Total with taxes and fees for those two nights is $262.69.
  6. Thanks for checking. I think Quixotic and I are probably both waiting for the other to book first! :)
  7. The same hotel appears, for the same price, for 5/6-5/9 and I've been trying to figure it out. There's no tripadvisor rating information, and it does not appear when you look into a vacation package. I'm stumped. Hoping you'll be the guinea pig who books it. :)
  8. No free rebid zones for Florence so I've been bidding for five days trying to get a four star. Day 1: $69 ($106 counteroffer) Day 2: $77 ($106 counteroffer) Day 3: $84 ($106 counteroffer) Day 4: $89 ($106 counteroffer) Day 5: $92 ... accepted Total cost is US$213.15. I'm not that excited b/c I'm not sure this hotel qualifies as a 4* (some sites give it 3*, some 4). At least it's somewhat near the train station (if nothing else). Happy to add a new hotel to the list...
  9. Yeah, I wasn't 100% jazzed about the Hilton -- I was holding out hope that I'd be the first to get a different 5* in Venice! And I wouldn't have minded a 4*, but we are leaving the country tomorrow and I wanted to wrap up the details. The Hilton may not be the best location, but the hotel looks pretty nice anyway. Given that my backup was a 4* for US$232/night, I'm pleased.
  10. Unfortunately Venice only has one free rebid zone for a 5*, so it took me awhile to get this bid. I started at $131 and then $139 (day 1), $147 and then $153 (day 2), $159 and $166 (day 3), and then $172 today (accepted first bid). Total cost is $392.68. Hope this makes sense. Incidentally I had tried also to bid 4* in Venice, up to $151, and was rejected. There are no free rebids in Venice for 4*, so I started at $131 (day 1), upped it to $141 (day 2), then $151 (day 3). All rejected with no counteroffers.
  11. Excuse me if this has already been noted, but per the Hotwire Vacation Package, the Red Lion on 5th Avenue (Seattle Downtown) has been upgrade to 3.5*. Amenities: Restaurant(s), Fitness Center, Golf Nearby. I guess Hotwire just can't decide whether this is a 3* or a 3.5* property...
  12. First bid $45 on Tucson East. Rejected. Then bid $48 adding Tucson North. Accepted. Risky because Tucson North is a resort area, but I figured there would be a 0% chance of me getting a resort property for $48/night. And if we did, I would not complain at all. Hotel Name: Hilton Tucson East 7600 East Broadway Tucson, Arizona 85710 520-721-5600 Your Offer Price: $48.00 Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Nights: 2 Subtotal: $96.00 Taxes and Service Fees: $21.17 Total Charges*: $117.17
  13. Haven't had time to call around to the hotels, but I went up to $76 on priceline again. No dice. EasyClickTravel has the Four Points Sheraton for $93. A little more than I wanted to spend, but I may just book it to put an end to this quest. Thanks for the suggestions.
  14. Thanks for the information! I'm going to call around this evening.
