  1. Well worth the 3 stars. Very comfortable - I was given a large suite room with a separate bedroom and door (nice to close it on the refrigerator noise), central kitchenette/bathroom area (including 2 burner stove and dishwasher) and separate living room with its own TV. It's about 6 stories tall. Neighborhood is quiet - a hillside covered with greenery is across the street. They also seemed to credit my Hilton card, though I'll believe that when it's credited. Very substantial complimentary breakfast - eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, etc. and plenty of fruit. Parking is in the basement
  2. Very nice property, well worth the 3 stars. The building is about 6 stories high. I got a large suite with a separate bedroom & king bed (and a bedroom door that could close on the refrigerator noise - the frequent downside of a suite room), a central kitchenette (with dishwasher & stove with 2 burners) and bathroom area, and separate living room with its own TV (other TV in bedroom). Free internet and good breakfast buffet included (on weekends also), with eggs, sausage, biscuit & gravy, various fruits, etc. Parking is an extra $15 in the basement; there are some cheaper lots
  3. Saw $38.95 was the lowest price on Hotwire (for a Standard size car - this was cheaper than compact). Total would have been $51.74. Bid $33.00 on PRICELINE (via site link from this site), was accepted on first try; total cost $46.02. Guess I mebbe could have gone lower! Also, Hertz was sold out on their own website!
  4. Saw that HOTWIRE had $14.95/day for midsize (total $54.81 for 2 days). Bid $12 first, no go, then bid $13, accepted. Total is $50.05 for 2 days.
  5. Bid $80 for 2.5* in Downtown-Space Needle (thinking Holiday Inn Express) - got the Homewood Suites on the first try. Not sure if I bid too high, but this was lower than anything comparable on HOTWIRE. Used the link to PRICELINE from inside this site.
  6. First bid of $60 for Lake Union 2.5* was rejected. Re-bid of $63 for Lake Union & Downtown 3* was rejected. Re-bid of $66 for Lake Union, Downtown & University 3* was rejected. Logged off. First bid of $67 for Downtown 4* was rejected as a repeat. Re-bid of $68 for Downtown & Lake Union 4* + 3* was rejected as a repeat Re-bid of $68 for Downtown, Lake Union & Bothell 4* + 3* was accepted. My guess is that the higher price (higher than $55/night for the weekend) is because of the Monday night stay, maybe I could have gotten $67 but I won't sweat the extra $3! Checking on Expedi
  7. Parked for free (overnight) in the basement parking of the M Grocery Market on the other side of I-5 - it's signed as $18 for 24 hours, but there wasn't anyone collecting on a Saturday morning (!) Don't know how long that will last. Freeway noise is noticeable - not a problem if you've trained yourself to sleep with earplugs (and they provide you with a pair). Otherwise, the room was very comfortable. No free Wifi.
