I started out by bidding 4.5 star (marked as best deal) in the Times Square area. I believed it to be the Intercontinental. $250, $265, and $280 were all rejected. There was a 5* listed under PRICELINE EXPRESS deals with a 8 approval rating, pets allowed, restaurant, free internet, pool, fitness center, and non-smoking for $395. Taxes and fees were an additional $70/night. Because the list rate of $617 was showing, I was pretty sure it was the Chatwal. BINGO! I am so excited. It is worth $115 more to me because the approval rating is really 8.9 and the tripadvisor rating is significantly higher than the Intercontinental. The Chatwal's web site gave me a $595 nightly rate.
