  1. 3* MN - Minneapolis (Bloomington East - Mall of America Area - Airport MSP) 8/25-8/26/14 $81 Hyatt Place Minneapolis Airport-South. FULL AMENITIES: Free Breakfast, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Suite, Indoor pool(s), Airport Shuttle, Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Internet access, Golf Nearby Used the Betterbidding Hot.wire & PRICELINE links to do searches and book the room. I love the Bidding.Helper tool!
  2. Yes, when I used your cool tool, I got the same list of amenities as you list. I called the hotel, and the shuttles start too late and cab is $30 for 6 miles .... Not sure what to do. Kstrom
  3. I'm looking for help IDing a 3* Lake Buena Vista Orlando hotel Dates: 10/25-10/27/2013 Price:$48 (listed as regularly $109) 85% recommend Here are the amenities Free parking Free breakfast Free internet Fitness Center Pool(s) Business Center Internet Access Also, a question: I will be car-less, and will need to get to a meeting at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel (at 1500 Epcot Resort Boulevard). I gather that many hotels in the Lake Buena Vista area have shuttle busses to the Disney parks. If it doesn't or if the shuttle doesn't go anywhere nearby, how hard is it to get a cab in this area? Thanks, Kstrom Like always, I use BB links for searches and purchases.
  4. Thanks so much: After playing around about with PL, I decided to go for the 3.5* HOTWIRE hotel. You were correct on what it was, and I posted the win separately. KStrom PS: Should I post a summary of my (failed) PL bids?
  5. I tried for a while to get a cheaper rate on PRICELINE or PRICELINE EXPRESS, but after a bit it was clear that PL wasn't going to beat HOTWIRE Here's the info: The Sonesta Hotel Philadelphia- 3.5-star hotel 1800 Market St., Philadelphia, PA, 19103 7/17/13-7/18/13 $98 Used betterbidding links for all HOTWIRE and PRICELINE searches & purchase.

  14. In the past, we have won the 2.5 Basking Ridge Courtyard for < $50. The betterbidding priceline hotel list now has it as a 3*, but I can't see any posts that confirm the level increase. Is the info solid? Second, the priceline region also shows a 2* and a 2.5*. If the Courtyard is now a 3*, does anyone have any idea what the 2* and 2.5* might be? A quick google revealed several other hotels in the area. They seem to be too "fancy" for a 2.5*, though some got terrible reviews. Thanks, Kstrom
  15. Our 12/24-12/26/08 stay was fantastic (I posted a review). I've read on the board that sometimes resorts charge a resort fee to PRICELINE customers. We were NOT charged the resort fee.
