  1. Thank you for your advice. I am still looking for a Miami Beach property and I am sure I will consider your hints. Sometimes a few dollar make the difference to feel good or great. Anyway, have you seen my remark considering the hotel list? Please change the Key West Parrot Key accomodation into 4* and record the 24 North in your list.
  2. A couple of days ago I tried some bidding on PRICELINE. I was looking for a hotel in Key West. I choose a 3.5* in New Town. I tried with 110$ but were rejeted. Nevertheless I got an offer to increase me bid to 125. I checked the hotel list at betterbidding and was sure. This hotel has to be the Parrot Key. Amenities were exactly the same as displayed there: Indoor or outdoor pool restaurant free internet free parking business center resort fee exactly $28.13 I selected another area, tried with 116 and was successful. But unfortunately not the Parrot Key. I got the 24 North. Please update your hotel list, I also think that the Parrot Key now has to be a 4* hotel. Anyway, is not a bad deal for this property. I paid with tax $252,04 for 2 days and ends up with resort fee in a total of $308,30. Quit cheap for the 4th of July in Key West but forjust a moment I was disappointed not to receive what I am looking for.
  3. As expected, it was the Trianon. Started bidding at $59 but were rejected. Added zones and got the hotel for $61. Bidding price plus $12.88 tax ends up in a sum of $73.88. I am happy with this deal, seems to bee a good price for $61, cheapest price online was $99.
  4. I am looking now for a hotel in the Naples / Ft. Myers area and placed a 55$ bid at PRICELINE yesterday for a 3,5* in Bonita Springs. Has been rejected, but maybe I will increase my bid today. I guess this hotel should be the Trianon Bonita Springs. Amenities are: Indoor or Outdoor Pool, Fitness Center, Business Center, Guest Score 8/10 or Higher I am looking for a one nite stay at the 7th of July. If you also think this will be the Trianon, I would try it with 60$ today again. Thank you for your help. Marco.
  5. started bidding @40$ and was successful. Got, as expected, the Super 8 Motel. Including breakfast it ends up with taxes in 52$ what I think is o.k. for this. BTW, I used the BiddingHelper.com tool and I really like the new "Is this a good price" button on PCLN Express. Thanks again for your help, Marco.
  6. I am also looking for a hotel at the 6th of July in Homestead. I missed yesterday Pricelines CyberMonday sale but will try to get the same price per NYOP. Bidding on a 2,5* hotel in this area. Amenities are only Indoor or Outdoor Pool. There is also a PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal for 46/nite with Free Parking Free Internet Free Breakfast Indoor or Outdoor Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities I assume this will be the same as offered in NYOP. I will give it a try with 40$ to catch up on the CyberMonday 15%. My guess for this would be the Super 8 with a small chance on Holiday Inn or Hampton Inn. What do you think?
  7. thank you again, I think I will book it later this day and report the win of course.
  8. fine, I have finished alle the unresolved threads. May I ask again about the Hotwire search above. What is your opinion? Hilton or Pullmann? Thx.
  9. We changed our plans and booked a hotel in Rahway New Jersey and displayed it here to the board. Has been booked PRICELINE linked by the board.
  10. NYOP bidding had no success with this topic at all beside many trials. We decided to stay in Providence and booked directly.
  11. As I stated above, I booked a hotel via Expedia and stayed there. The NYOP bidding had no success with this.
  12. Hello again, I am thinking about a stay at Miami Airport. HOTWIRE offers for a 1night stay in a 4* hotel at the 1th of July next year a price of $82 plus $20.28tax. I am asking for a family stay of 2+2kids. amenities are: Free Internet Pet friendly Airport shuttle Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Golf nearby Tennis nearby Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Wheelchair accessible Accessible bathroom Accessible parking Roll-in shower My guess would be Hilton Miami Airport or Pullmann. What do you think? Will 82$ o.k for this? Thanks in advance,
  13. I searched mid of September for a hotel in Glasgow and found a 4 star recommendation by Priceline as "best deal" for a hotel in Glasgow. I myself want to go together with family to a UEFA Champions League match (Celtic vs. Borussia Mönchengladbach) and all hotels are fully booked there due to the Germans. I placed a bid for the fun and got surprised. Astonished with the 4,5* Marriott and am more than happy with. 62$ + 14$ tax ends up in 75$ per room/night. Comparable room on booking.com has shown 215$/night. Looks like a bargain :-) Amenities: Indoor pool, restaurant, business center, handicap accessible
  14. I have searched several weeks for a hotel in Munich, Germany for a Oktoberfest-weekend. Today I got an offer via HOTWIRE for 90$ with the following ameneties: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access. I have guessed for the Victor's Residenz Hotel an got that one. Including tax I have to pay 110$ what has to be a massive bargain for a hotel during this crazy Oktoberfest weekend in Munich. Comparable prices are at least over 250$. I have used the BiddingHelper.com tool, of course.
