  1. Rejected at $48, accepted at $51. Originally tried bidding 4* in the Rittenhouse Square and Center City East zones up to $101.00 and was rejected. Based on the parking rates in the city, decided to stay out of the core with free parking and cheaper options. As always, thanks to all bidders who post their wins and to the moderators. Used the [url=http://www.betterbidding.com/clicks/click.php?afsrc=1&id=40]PRICELINE[/url] link from the betterbidding page!
  2. Apologies for the late posting - bid this about a week and a half ago and stayed last weekend. Definitely wouldn't agree with the 4* rating for this hotel, but it was a good stay. Hotel Amenities: Free Parking, Free Internet, Pet Friendly, Indoor Pool(s), Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Internet Access, Golf Nearby, Spa Services
  3. Amenities Listed: Free Internet, Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Restaurant(s), Internet Access Hotel is listed as the "Lord Baltimore" (no mention of the Radisson Plaza). 20 West Baltimore St. Thanks as always to all those who take the time to post on these boards to inform others (and to the moderators!!)
  4. Spent some time attempting to bid downtown Toronto zones with no luck (4*, up to $125). Researched hotwire rates and thought for sure that the property listed might be the Radisson Plaza Harbourfront Admiral which would have been an ideal location. Obviously willing to take the chance and ended up with the DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Toronto. This appears to be a new listing not on the hotel list. Full Amenities listed: Free Internet Fitness Center Business Center Golf Nearby Pet Friendly Pool(s) Self Service Laundry Tennis Nearby Indoor Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Internet Access Rate per night CAD $106.26 Nights 2 Rooms (2 adults) 1 Subtotal CAD $212.52 Tax recovery charges + fees CAD $46.71 Hotwire total CAD $259.23 Doubletree by Hilton Toronto Downtown 108 Chestnut Street, Toronto, ON M5G 1R3 Used the HOTWIRE link from this site. Thanks as always to those who post rates and to the moderators.
  5. I've been bidding these dates consistently up to $140/$150 since December with no luck. Ideally I wanted a location further uptown, but this will suit us just fine.

  14. Just out of curiosity, another posting from a few days ago listed the Crowne Plaza as a 3.5*. The hotel list also lists this hotel as a 3.5* (and a post from Sept. 2008) lists it as a 3*. I assume they've upgraded it to a 4 star? My bid was definitely for a 4 star...
