  1. I started my booking from the HOTWIRE link at BetterBidding.com. I received a rate of $190/night. The lowest rate for The Cosmopolitan that I can find otherwise is $250/night! I also used Promo Code QUICKTRIP10 at checkout to save an additional $10. I paid a total of $552.05 at the time of booking, and I will pay an additional $88 "resort fee" at the hotel. The "resort fee" of approximately $44/night is unfortunately standard at the 5-star hotels on The Strip in Las Vegas. The Cosmopolitan Of Las Vegas 3708 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (702) 698-7090 Check-in Sat, Nov 16 - 03:00pm Check-out Mon, Nov 18 - 11:00am Room: 1 room (hotel chooses bed type) | 2 adults Nights: 2 nights Amenities: Free parking, Free internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Casino, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Spa services Accessibility: Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower Price summary Room $379.44 ($189.72 per night x 2 nights x 1 room) Coupon applied $10.00 Taxes & fees $94.61 Promo code -$10.00 Hotwire Total (USD) $464.05 Resort fee $88.00 (Due at hotel) Trip total (USD) $552.05 Trip total per night (USD) $276.03 (includes resort fee) (Note: I used Promo Code QUICKTRIP10 at checkout to save an additional $10.)
  2. Started bidding at $60 and increased by $5 each bid (by adding Nashville areas with no 3.5-star hotels) until I won at $80. Purchased on the same day that I stayed there.

I was able to upgrade at check-in to a room facing into the Atrium for $50, which was definitely worth it. My total paid was ~$170, which was more than 50% lower than the cheapest price I could find otherwise for a room facing the Atrium.

  6. I started from the HOTWIRE link on this website. Before buying on Hotwire, I bid on Priceline from $140 to $210 for a 4.5* to 5* in both downtown areas, but I had no luck. Rate per night $211.00 Nights 1 Rooms ( 1 adult ) 1 Subtotal $211.00 Tax recovery charges + fees $60.44 Hotwire total $271.44 Hotel Amenities Indoor pool(s) Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Spa services Accessibility In-room accessibility Wheelchair accessible

  8. I started my bid from the PRICELINE link on this website. My first bid of $75 was accepted. The lowest retail price that I could find for the same night was $159. The hotel was very nice. The hotel charged an additional $15/night for parking in their parking lot! (Overnight valet parking is $18/night.) The hotel would be difficult to reach by public transportation, so I thought that this parking fee was excessive. Summary of Charges $75.00 /per room night Nights 1 Taxes and Fees $17.58 Total Charges $92.58
  9. I started my bidding using the PRICELINE link on this board. Hotwire had a "Downtown Portland area" 4-star hotel listed at $101, so I decided to bid lower than that on a 4-star hotel. I started bidding on a 5-star hotel at $110 and then a 4.5-star hotel at $110 in Downtown Portland. Both were rejected. I then bid for a 4-star hotel, so I dropped to 4 stars and bid $80. That was rejected, so I increased it to $85, then $90, and finally to $95, which was accepted. The Westin Portland is currently ranked #24 of 132 hotels in Portland on tripadvisor. The cheapest online rate I saw for The Westin Portland was $210. I am very happy with this result. Offer Price: avg. per room, per night US$ 95.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 2 Room Subtotal: US$ 190.00 Taxes & Fees: US$ 36.50 Total Charged to Card: US$ 226.50
  10. I started my bidding using the PRICELINE link on this board. I started bidding on a 5-star hotel at $135 and then a 4.5-star hotel at $135 in Downtown Portland. I then decided to bid for a cheaper 4-star hotel, so I dropped to 4 stars and bid $90. That was rejected, so I increased it to $95, and it was accepted. It is currently ranked #22 of 132 hotels in Portland on tripadvisor. The cheapest online rate I saw for The Westin Portland was $169. I am very happy with this result. Offer Price: US$ 95.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: US$ 95.00 Taxes & Fees: US$ 21.62 Total Charged to Card: US$ 116.62
  11. I used the HOTWIRE link from this website to buy the hotel. I saw a 4.5-star hotel on PRICELINE in the same area (Granville Entertainment District on Priceline), and I bid from $60 to $90 on it, but I did not win. So I decided to purchase this deal on Hotwire. Subtotal $106.00 Tax recovery charges & fees $28.75 Total price $134.75 The lowest rate I could find outside Hotwire was $177 + taxes. Hotel amenities include: * Indoor pool(s) * Fitness Center * Pool(s) * Restaurant(s) * Business Center * High-Speed Internet Access * Spa Services * In-room accessibility * Wheelchair accessible
  12. I wanted a 4* hotel in Cupertino. I started with $65. I added Milpitas and went to $75. I added Mountain View and went to $80. I added Newark and went to $85. I added Sunnyvale and went to $89, which was near my upper limit, and I finally won!

  14. Initial bid for $90 was rejected. I bid only on a 5-star hotel in the City Center. Priceline came back and indicated that I could bid $114 and re-bid immediately as a one-time deal that they would offer. I declined. I added Zone 6 (Schipohl), as it has no 5-star hotels, and re-bid for $100, but was rejected. I added Zone 5, as it has no 5-star hotels, and re-bid for $110, and it was accepted. Summary of Charges Offer Price: avg. per room, per night: US$110.00 Rooms: 1 Room Subtotal: US$110.00 Taxes & Fees: US$19.63 Total Charged to Card: US$129.63 The Nh Barbizon Palace is a bit dated, but it is pretty decent and clean overall, and the location near the central train station is great. I used the better bidding PRICELINE link to begin my bidding.
