  1. Sorry - I wasn't sure if in the bidding process you could request a particular amenity that the other 3* properties didn't have. I noticed that someone mentioned they have the Courtyard in June, when they bid on it, so I thought I might try... the Sheraton is probably the only one I wouldn't want in particular ... but maybe I'll just wing it! I'll report back. Thanks for your help.
  2. I am trying to bid on a 3* hotel in North Bangor, ME. I would like to get the Courtyard Bangor. There seem to be two hotels with all the same amenities, Courtyard Bangor and Four Points Sheraton. Is there any way to bid so that I might get Courtyard? I looked at reported hotel wins for this area, and both come up. Four Points Sheraton: Free Internet Access Free Parking Business Center Free Internet In Public Areas Free Internet In Room Fitness Center Handicapped Rooms/Facilities No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Pets Allowed Restaurant Swimming Pool Indoor Swimming Pool Courtyard Bangor: Free Internet Access Free Parking Business Center Free Internet In Public Areas Free Internet In Room Fitness Center Handicapped Rooms/Facilities No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Restaurant Swimming Pool Indoor Swimming Pool The only difference I see is that Pets are allowed at Four Points Sheraton... but I guess you can't bid on "No Pets Allowed"! Thanks for any bidding advice!

Just booked this today through betterbidding site. The only way I knew about the fee was that I read the reviews!
  4. I ended up booking it, and it was Embassy Suites! Before booking, I also called hotel (I was pretty sure it was Embassy Suites) and asked them how much internet was (it didn't say "Free Internet" under amenities) and they said it was free! $149 avg/night Room subtotal $298.00 Taxes & Fees 87.98 Total 356.18 8/26/18-8/28/18 Embassy Suites - Empire State Building Amenities: Free Breakfast Non Smoking Areas Fitness Center Business Center By the way - not listed under amenities- but I called the hotel and they have free internet!
  5. I am trying to book a hotel in NYC 8/26-8/28. I am trying to identify the following hotel: 3.5* Empire State Building Area Amenities: Free Breakfast Business Center Fitness Center Non-smoking $148 (38% off $238) 9+ Guest Rating, 50 verified Do you think this is Embassy Suites? Thanks for your help. P.S. We are travelling to US Open via subway, and wanted to be somewhat close to Grand Central. I'm not sure if you recommend any other hotels nearby.
  6. Okay - I completed my prior Wailea Priceline thread.
  7. I ended up getting reservations at The Residence Inn by Mariott Maui. I am still checking hotwire and priceline weekly to see if a better hotel has a great deal!
  8. A friend and I are travelling to NYC last minute and looking for weekend accomodations. We would like to have separate beds. We would like Central Park South, Midtown East, Rockefeller Center, Theatre - pretty much anywhere midtown. We are both very familiar with city...but don't really want to be in financial district... There are a lot of hotels listed in Hotwire in the $300-375 range - do you have any recommendations? Do you know what the 4 Star Time Square South, 85% reviews, $301 weekend deal (usually $607?) Amenities: Boutique hotelBusiness centerFitness centerInternet accessRestaurant(s)Self-service laundrySmoke-free rooms Resort fee of $13
  9. I just looked at HOTWIRE and found a 3* "Condo" in Wailea-Makena area with bed choice available. 95% positive reviews (but only 5). But where the price is it says 3* Hotel. Amenities include free wi-fi, free parking, 1 BR suite, Full kitchenLaundry in roomPool(s)Smoke-free roomsSuite Do you know what hotel this might be? Thanks.
  10. Thank you for your response! You are correct - the room rate was $378! I think we would like to stay in the $400/night or lower range, with as nice as possible accomodations. We really love Maui - I think it would be hard to convince us to go elsewhere. Do you have any recommendations for a lower star rating? Thanks.
  11. My husband and I will be traveling to Maui 1/12/18-1/19/18 after spending a week at a conference in Kauai. A few years ago I was able to find a 5* Hotel Deal in Wailea-Makena area for just under $300 (it ended up being the Four Seasons!!!). Unfortunately, I don't remember how far in advance I made the reservation. I have been looking for a month or two, and prices are VERY high that week, and most of the hotels seem close to booked, or at least selling for full price. I am looking for a 4-5* hotel very close to ocean. Do you think express deal rooms will open up in the future? Or do you think I should book a cancellable room, and wait until the time gets closer? Thanks for any advice.
  12. Thanks for your help. I thought that was the hotel. I ended up staying with my daughter!
  13. I am traveling to NYC tomorrow and am looking for a hotel in Mid-town east (or somewhere near Grand Central Station). I found a 4* hotel in Mid-town East, 8/28-8/30, for $139 per night (normally $226). 90% recommended by 205 reviewers. Could you help me identify it? Also, what kind of fees are added to the price? And can the Summer $30 coupon be applied if it is $300 after taxes? Complimentary: Free Internet Amenities: Boutique hotelBusiness centerFitness centerRestaurant(s)Self-service laundrySmoke-free rooms Thank you!
  14. Wanted to stay in/near Meadowlands as we are going to a concert 7/16/16. Used PRICELINE EXPRESS DEALS (through Better Bidding!) 3.5 Stars in Meadowlands - Rutherford Price listed was $136. Including taxes and fees the total was $170.40 Amenities were: Free Parking Indoor Pool Non-Smoking Gym Business Center (no free Internet)
  15. Was looking for a hotel near Villanova for my daughter's graduation. It was a PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal - 3 Star for $178 (unfortunately last night is was $158!!). Regular rate on Priceline was $258. AMENITIES: Free Breakfast Free Internet Free Parking PET FRIENDLY Indoor pool Non-Smoking Gym Restaurant Business Center Handicap Accessible By checking off "Pet Friendly" in the amenities, I'm pretty sure I'm getting this hotel because it is the only one in the area that has this amenity. Also, I usually don't bid for 3 star in this area because you usually end up at the Valley Forge Casino Resort - which I personally don't care for. P.S. Total for two nights with taxes and fees was $408.88.
