  1. I was surprised to get this since this is the first sighting of a 5* hotel in the Brussels Airport area (please update hotel list accordingly) and most hotel websites would not consider establishment a 4*. I was actually hoping for Brussels center... Oh well... BTW, I used the PRICELINE link from this board.
  2. Previous rejected bid was $90. Used the PRICELINE link from the board. Happy to get a real hotel instead of the AT&T Conference Center at UTexas.
  3. Just to follow-up on my trip. I was rather disappointed with the facilities at the Renaissance. Compared to the Sheraton in Brussels, this hotel was definitely one notch lower (should probably be a 3* hotel, rather than a 4* hotel).
  4. I was hoping for the Sheraton (better location), but this will do. There was a $102 option for a 4* on HOTWIRE at the same time. There is no free re-bid options for 4* in Brussels, so I slowly walked up the bid over a week's time. My bids were $65/70/75/80/85(+22)/88(+22)/90(won) (+22) denotes when I was countered with bid $22 more now. I used the PRICELINE link from this board as usual.
  5. This is the hotel I was shooting for based on location and reviews. Previous bid was $105. $110 was accepted (total for two nights was $269.93) Used the PRICELINE link from this board.
  6. I am looking for exactly the same stay (4* for 5/3-5/4 in Manhattan). I have found that this is turning out to be a sold-out weekend in NYC and finding a bargain is tough. I have so far bid up to $280/night for 4* on Priceline with no joy.
  7. Last minute booking for next day using this forum's PRICELINE link. My first bid of $56/night was accepted right away. This is the first time I got this hotel for my LAX stays.
  8. Another one of my last-minute bids through the forums' PRICELINE link. It sure seems like booking within one week of your stay results in higher price... :) I'm surprised that I didn't get the Renaissance, which recently moved up to 4*..... Anyways, previous rejected bid was $73/night. A bid of $70/night was countered with a offer to raise it by $22. I also made an attempt for a 3* LAX hotel, but gave up at $65/night. For reference, hotwire price for a 4* LAX hotel was $90/night (and I think it was the same hotel) and 3.5* LAX hotel was $77/night (and I think that was the Hilton).
  9. Yes, the complete list is Amenities: Shuttle, Restaurant, Pool, Fitness, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Laundry
  10. Last minute booking (using the betterbidding HOTWIRE link) -- I wasn't getting much on PRICELINE, so happy to land this hotel at this price. HOTWIRE listed laundry as a amenity, but it is crossed out in our Hotwire Hotel List.
  11. Just reporting my unsuccessful bids for Downtown LA (12-Feb-08 to 13-Feb-08) -- walked it up to $88/night and no luck. The only area I'm avoiding is the LAX area.
  12. Bid through SavingsBarn.com. Targeted Downtown specifically (avoiding airport area this time). Previous reject was $80. What I believe to be the same hotel was on Hotwire at $114.
  13. If this report is accurate, this constitutes a downgrade of Millenium Biltmore to 3* (from 4*) -- and in my opinion, a much-needed downgrade. Admin: please update the Priceline Hotel List.
  14. Just to follow-up -- the reason why it was very hard to get a 4* on this particular date initially was because the Sheraton was packed with people arriving in LAX that very day for a cruise ship (Princess Cruises). Both the airport and Sheraton were packed with cruise ship guests.
