  1. Took a chance and went ahead with the booking (through your HOTWIRE link)! Happy to report it was the Sheraton Universal. Thanks for being such an outstanding resource, BB!
  2. Just used the better bidding HOTWIRE link to find a hotel for Sept 10 - Sept 14th in the Burbank-Universal City-Glendale area. It comes up for $106 per night. I'm thinking (and hoping) it's the Sheraton Universal. Any thoughts? Amenities show in this order: Smoke-free Fitness Center Pool Restaurant Business Center Hi-Speed Internet Thank you in advance!!!
  3. Just booked a 3.5* Pasadena hotel through Hotwire with the amenities below for $93 per night. Was really thinking it was going to be the Westin after doing a bit of research on this site. Oh well! Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center High-speed Internet Access
  4. Thank you so much! That probably explains it!
  5. Thank you so much for your quick response! I have to find them something as the plane tickets are already booked and they are coming from Canada. I will probably go through AAA or somewhere to have a "backup" hotel, but really hope that I can find something through Priceline. I did notice that Hotwire was priced quite a bit higher (160) even for a 3.5 star. Since I've seen so many $75 bids accepted (not for that date mind you) I was thinking maybe there was something going on in town that week pushing the demand/prices higher. It looks like I'm going to have to raise the bid quite a bit....what do you think?
  6. Hi. This is my first post....my apologies if it isn't quite right. Any suggestions in strategy? I am trying to book a hotel for my parents for San Francisco for 10/16 - 10/19/05. I used the following strategies (rebidding adding non-4 star hotels) so far: USE $75 Rejected $80 Rejected $85 Rejected $90 Rejected $95 Rejected USE (72 hours later) $90 Rejected $95 Rejected $100 Rejected $105 Rejected $111 Rejected USE/USW (72 hours later) $75 Rejected $80 Rejected $85 Rejected $90 Rejected $95 Rejected Looks like I might not even be in the ballpark. If anyone has any guidance, or information about this being a potentially busy week (conferences?) I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks!
