  1. HI, I am pretty sure I am in US Dollars. But I am searching for a room for 3 adults. Should I try to screenshot my results?
  2. Wanted to follow up on this trip....Our room at the airport Radisson was one of the most gorgeous, high-end hotels I have ever stayed in. My friend had never booked with HOTWIRE. She was astonished.
  3. Help with a second property in the same zone, which I am deciding between. 3* Santa Barbara Beach zone, 3/1-3/3 2019 $142 Santa Barbara Beach Amenities Include: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free internet, Near beach, Pool(s) and more... (80% recommended) Upon opening Hotwire Easy View: Your hotel is guaranteed to be one of these: West Beach Inn, a Coast Hotel; Mason Beach Inn; Santa Barbara House 38 percent off ($228 per night normally) Complimentary Free breakfast Free internet Free parking Amenities Near beachPool(s) Guest Ratings · Overall satisfaction 4.1 · Condition of hotel 4 · Quality of service 4.3 · Room comfort 4.1 · Room cleanliness 4.3 Room type: · Hotel chooses · 2 queen beds · suite 1 king 1 sofabed
  4. Thank you for your help identifying the following Mystery 4-star Hotel Santa Barbara Subzone: Santa Barbara Beach area March 1-3 $149 Before following link, info given was: · .9 from search location · 3.5/5 Good! · 1,999 reviews · Free Internet Bed Choice · $149/night · What hotel will I get? You’ll get one of the hotels below: Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara, Blue Sands Motel, or Hilton Santa Barbara Beachside After opening link, info given: · My hotel is guaranteed to be one of these: Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara, Harbor View Inn and Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort · Complimentary-Free Internet · Amenities—Business Center, Fitness Center, near Beach, Pet Friendly, Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Smoke-free room · Guest ratings 3.5 · Condition of hotel 3.4 · Quality of service 3.9 · Room comfort 3.6 · Room cleanliness 3.9 Note: I also tried the Hotwire Easy View. The only 4* Santa Barbara Beach I could find for $149 had the same information. It also added that the property was 55 percent popular. That seemed less popular than the numbers above, but I don't know how that raw data is translated into a percentage. Thanks so much!
  5. I ended up getting the University Inn at Duke elsewhere. I decided I wanted that particular hotel's location.
  6. Preview window free breakfast, free interenet, overall satisfaction 4. We can guarantee you'll get one of the hotels below: Hilton Garden Inn Nashville Downtown/Convention Center, Hyatt PLace Nashville Downtown, The Capitol Hotel Downtown.

Cost with tax and fees for this room is $147/night. This is a good price for downtown. Also, this property only charges $18/day for valet parking. I used a HOTWIRE link to make this purchase.

With tax and fees, total was $105.
  8. Thank you for those guesses. I had decided the Millenium is probably correct. I had hoping for that Hilton Garden Inn or Residence Inn but neither seem likely. I studied Priceline for this zone and don't think the common wins look interesting to me. I will let you know if I bid Hotwire or not, and how it turns out.

  10. Hello, I did take the PRICELINE EXPRESS bid for $116/night 3.5* hotel in New Haven, Connecticut, details described above. It was indeed the New Haven Hotel. Thank you for reviewing my bid. (And I was careful to use a Betterbidding.com PRICELINE link.)
  11. Seeking to stay in Zone 2 of New Haven CT for night of May 17, 2 ppl. Tried Name your own Price, starting at $80 and adding zones until $105 max, all denied. Looking at accepting one of the 2 Express Deals. Ostensibly one looks considerably less, but with a $22 fee paid at checkin to hotel, appear to be same. Not finding $22 fee on any past reviews. From reviewing this site, Priceline, Google Maps and other travel engines really only 3 hotels in this zone, the Omni, New Haven and Courtyard Marriott. The 2-3 others are independents that are full for our date. Here are details of two offers. Wondering which hotels these are as some past respondents name the New Haven as 3* and others as a 3.5*. New Haven Express Deal #1 3.5 Star Hotel Downtown New Haven Guest Favorite Fitness Center, Business Center, Bed Choice Available. Hotel Amenities Pop-up: Bed Choice, Business Center, Fitness Center, Non Smoking 8+ guest rating 300 verified guest reviews $116 Save 30 percent However, besides the taxes, there is an additional mandatory fee of $22 collected at the hotel. Priceline total w tax is $147.97 and then w $22 fee my overall total is then $169.97 New Haven Express Deal #2 3 –Star Hotel Downtown New Haven Free Internet, Fitness Center, Restaurant, Bed Choice available Hotel Amenities Popup: Free Internet, Bed Choice, Business Center, Fitness Center, Non Smoking Restaurant 8+ Guest Rating 400 verified guest reviews $139 Save 18 percent Taxes are $37.97 so total is $176.97 Thank you for any suggestions.
  12. Hello, West End is a separate zone from Glen Allen. The BetterBidding hotel list has just one zone, but Hotwire has divided them into two.
  13. Hi, Thanks for your reply. To answer your questions: I have opened the biddinghelper.com before, but it gives a warning about Priceline not covering more than 2 people. So I have generally closed the tab at that point. I may have known at one point that this tool also worked for Hotwire but didn't know how to find it again. Why I would consider a hotel with a 40 percent approval rating? In this case, there were only 7 reviews, which is not enough to be reliable. My thought was, if I could figure out which hotel it was, I would go find a bigger sampling of reviews on another travel site. Also, I have found that some people give negative reviews of modest hotels because they expect the Ritz. Okay.. on to revised search results, which included a third option today: 3* Latin Quarter - Sorbonne $168/night FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Internet access upon clicking through, additional info: HOT RATE HOTEL Latin Quarter - Sorbonne area 85 percent recommended 2* Opera Garnier - Galeries Lafayette - St Lazare -$105/night FULL AMENITIES: Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Internet access 40 percent recommended. Odd: When you click through, the rate is then listed as $106 instead of $105. 3* Opera Garnier - Galeries Lafayette - St Lazare $125/night 55% recommended FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Internet access Thanks so much for your help reviewing these listings.
  14. Hello, I could use your help identifying the two properties below. Many thanks! Help ID: 3* Sorbonne Area Latin Quarter $168/night "85% Recommended (20) Great!" "Book Soon The last person got the Hotel Devillas" Complimentary: Free Internet Amenities: Pet Friendly Travel Dates: June 30-July 3 Two adults and one teenager Help ID: 2* Opera Garnier -Galeries Lafayette Saint Lazare, $113/night "40 percent recommended (7)" "Book Soon The last person got the Hotel Antin St Georges" Amenities: Internet Access Pet Friendly Smoke Free Rooms Same Travel dates and number of Travelers as above.
  15. Administrator: Please note that the zones for Richmond did not match up to what I found on the Hotwire site, and the zone this purchase was in shows up as Richmond--West End. This zone is separate from Richmond -Glen Allen and is not currently listed in the Better Bidding drop-down menu. 3* in West Richmond FULL AMENITIES: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Indoor pool(s), Fitness center, Pool(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower Clicking through the bid, you also see: Free parking Free breakfast Free Internet Indoor pool(s) Fitness center Pool(s) Business center Self-service laundry Hotel was pleasant, clean, exactly as advertised. Would most definitely stay there again should the occasion arise. $82 was good value for money.
