  1. Thanks. I'd go for the DuPont property, but the only hesitation I have is what I read about the noise (from bars at night and dump trucks early morning!). Not very familiar with DC - have only been there once on a business trip and stayed at the Willard for 2 nights. So I have a tiny bit of familiarity with the downtown area. I'll do a bit more research and report back.
  2. At these prices, I will go for one of these rather than the Willard. I'm leaning towards the DuPont Circle property and the Downtown one (any color you can add to help choosing between these 2 would be greatly appreciated). But main question (if you're able to answer): I am really holding out in the hope that a more interesting property might show up in this price range, but at the same time don't want to lose out on these ones if it doesn't. What's your experience of DC at that time of the year (last 2 weeks of August)? Is this worth holding out for a few days or would you recommend I go for one of these? Thanks
  3. Thanks - I'll likely decide in another week or so and will post either way. Would be sweet if the Willard came up at a lower rate before that!
  4. Thanks - one question on the Capitol Hill property. When I use the regular Hotwire link from your website, it's showing me a different set of amenities than what I got using the green button on biddinghelper. The main link shows "pet friendly" and "spa services", which the green button doesn't. Could that be two different hotels? Those two amenities got me thinking it might be the Liaison. Thanks

  11. Resolved the matter with IHG - they have arranged with with hotel directly to provide the free weekend night. Thanks for all your help - and please close this thread.
  12. The HOTWIRE fees add up! total cost is a dollar short of booking the Roosevelt from Expedia and $25 less than booking from the hotel directly. So if my I don't win my tiff with IHG, I'll be using Expedia. Using links for IHG: I am an Ambassador member with IHG so I typically call them for the booking - it's easier when using points.Otherwise I would use your links (anything to do my bit to support all the good work you guys do). Thanks for your help - please close this thread.
  13. I've got a problem with this trip - I originally booked with Intercontinental the Barclay directly (total trip is August 17 to 24), using points for 3 nights and advance purchase for 2 and my complimentary weekend voucher for the weekend night (August 17 to 19). I've misplaced/lost my complimentary Ambassador weekend voucher and they will not honor anything but that piece of paper. While I'm fighting this out with IHG, I thought I'd look for a hotel (4*) close by for those 2 nights (August 17 and 18). The Roosevelt would be ideally close - but need to be "reasonably certain". Questions is - what else could this be?
  14. Full ameneties are: Fitness Center Guests have access to exercise equipment; an additional charge may apply. Restaurant(s) Property offers at least one restaurant on the premises; hours and days of operation may vary. Business Center Guests have access to business equipment and services; an additional charge may apply.

Accessible for the blind Braille or raised signage Accessible for the deaf TTY for telephone, visual or flashing fire alarm and vibrating alarm clock Accessible path of travel <amenity names only please... not descriptions> In-room accessibility Accessible path from the room entrance to the window, the bed and the bathroom; accessible hardware and minimal resistance to open the door; accessible temperature controls and window coverings Accessible bathroom Raised toilet, hand-held shower and grab bars at the tub and toilet Roll-in shower Bathroom has a roll-in shower Have you seen this in recent wins (I couldn't tell from searching the board)?
  15. (used your link for the search) Check-in: August 17 Check-out: August 19 3 adults, 1 child $198 per room/night Ameneties: Fitness Center Restaurant(s) Business Center High Speed Internet Access Acessible for the blind Acessible for the deaf Acessible path of travel In-room accesibility Acessible bathroom This one sounds a lot like The Roosevelt - what's got me tied up in knots is that this is missing the "roll-in shower", but when I click "see all ameneties" the "roll in shower" does show up, right at the end. Thoughts?
