I use Priceline for NYC several times a year and have never been burned. The rates are incredible now, so we're going to try to stay a couple of nights in the city for Spring Break while hubby works, so he doesn't have to commute. Since there are 4 of us, and it's for 2 nights, I'm not sure that I want to risk Priceline (although I've only stayed in one hotel that wouldn't have accomodated all 4 of us). So I'm looking at Hotwire. If I put in 4 ppl, I assume that the hotels that come up are booking me a room with 2 dbl beds? I see the Sheraton (per other inquiries) here, for $129, which is a pretty good rate (but then I think that I could get it for less via PL probably). So-- Compare the two booking services: Can I cancel the room on Hotwire or not? Room for 4 people guaranteed on Hotwire? How do the fees compare, because I know that a $125 room on PL really is quite a bit more than that with the fees. If there's another thread that answers this, feel free to point me there, but I looked at the general Hotwire info and didn't see it. I'd just appreciate hearing from someone who uses both.
