  1. I bid all over San Diego for a 4-star at $65. No takers. Changed bid to $50 and added 3.5 stars. I won The Dana at Mission Bay. They don't charge for parking and have free Internet, but it's not exactly Hyatt (-;
  2. Woo hoo! First try. "Named my own price" for a 4-star in downtown LA for $85. No hassle, no re-bidding. They just gave it to me. (Intel before the Priceline operation was that Hotwire had this property up for $100/night. Always look on Hotwire for the 90% Recommended 4-star in downtown LA, note the price and try to beat it on Priceline's "name your own price.") I love Star Trek (and Kirk and Shatner)!! Best deal I've gotten yet on the Westin Bonaventure.
  3. The price is a bit high. I'd guess it is the LA Downtown Hotel. You can usually get a 4-star for < $115 on HOTWIRE in downtown LA.
  4. The Bonaventure is a 4-star with a 90% recommendation rating. The other 4-star you noted above is definitely that old and tired Biltmore. The other option for downtown LA is the LA Downtown Hotel, a refurbed Hyatt property. It's listed on HOTWIRE is a 3.5-star with 80% recommendation. It's right across the street from the Bonaventure.
  5. Also included the coupon code "SUMMER" and received an additional 5% (34.50 for 6 nites) off.

  7. Someone posted that you can park at Union Station for $6 per day, then take the train to your hotel.
  8. If you're staying in Downtown LA, don't rent a car. It's a pain in the rear, and parking is expensive. On the other hand, public transit is convenient, cheap and safe. From LAX, take the FlyAway bus to Union Station. There is a bus leaving every 30 minutes. The trip cost is $7. On holidays, check the FlyAway schedule, and the connecting train schedule. Sometimes things shut down on Christmas, New Years, and etc. Once at Union Station, the world is your oyster. The Red Line and Purple Line trains can get you anywhere in downtown. I usually stay at the Bonaventure, LA Downtown (Hyatt), or the S
  9. The Westin Bonaventure is usually the 4-star downtown LA hotel with a "90% Recommended" rating. To find this gem, sometimes you need to reduce the term of your stay to one or two nights. I just booked two nights, one night at a time for $132 and $140 respectively by adding to the purchase after checkout. It did not allow me more than one extra night. The amenities: Free Internet <amenity names only please... not descriptions> Pet friendly Pet friendly - terms apply Smoke Free Rooms Guest rooms at this hotel are always smoke-free.

  10. I travel to downtown LA every month and use Hotwire. The 4-star is the Millenium Biltmore The 3.5 star is the LA Downtown Hotel, which is the better option of the two.
