  1. I booked through the link on this site and used your PRICELINE EXPRESS coupon. Great deal during an expensive week for Toronto hotels! Amenities: Fitness center Restaurant No smoking Free internet Pool Room choices were: “Room assigned at check-in — sleeps two adults” for $95 or “Guest room” for $138. Thanks!
  2. This is a fabulous hotel, and I'm stunned that I was able to get this rate. The lowest rate on the hotel's own website for this night is $274. I used your site to access HOTWIRE, and I used your Hotwire Coupon, too. So my final price, with taxes and fees, was $105. Thanks! Amenities: Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower
  3. This is a PRICELINE EXPRESS Deals win. The amenities are: Pets Allowed; Business Center; Indoor or Outdoor Pool; Fitness Center; No Smoking Rooms/Facilities. I used your coupon and accessed PRICELINE through the link on this site. Thank you! I had wanted this hotel and am very pleased with the rate. PRICELINE was offering a nonrefundable rate of $130 for this same hotel. I found this odd: That rate came with much higher taxes and fees of around $250! My taxes and fees were $147.
  4. I had been trying for days to get a decent rate on a hotel in North Fort Lauderdale for this night, watching Hotwire and Priceline Express Deals and bidding with Priceline. But I was alarmed to see the rates for this holiday weekend night go higher and higher and see my options steadily dwindle. So, the night before I needed the room, I decided to start looking in Boca, too -- 20 miles away. This seemed like a comparatively good rate on a great hotel ("95% recommended! Amazing!" Hotwire said), so I grabbed it. The amenities were: Free breakfast Free internet Free parking
  5. Thanks so much for the intel! I have made a cancelable booking directly with the hotel, because at the moment Hotwire would save me no more than $10 a night, once the fees are factored in -- and I'd be tempted to buy Hotwire's travel insurance, which would bring everything even. But I'll keep watching this rate on the chance that it might get better.
  6. Hello -- I love your site and use it all the time. The 4.5 hotel I'm looking at has a rate of $158 for Jan. 30-Feb. 3. These are the amenities: Complimentary free internet Boutique hotel Business center Fitness center Indoor pool(s) [The big selling point for me!] Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Self-service laundry Smoke-free rooms The hotel also offers bed choice. The mobile version of Hotwire show the first part of a review that says, "Right at the central train station, many busses and trains and restaurants and
  7. First, I tried bidding to land the 4* Mayfair, because both Priceline Express Deals and Hotwire had a hotel matching its description for $120 a night. Using free rebids and adding the Coral Gables zone, I bid up to $110 but did not have success. Next, I tried for the 3.5* Aloft Miami Dadeland, because it wasn't too far away and because of its free parking -- a big selling point! It had a lowest advertised rate for these nights of $135. I bid $95, added the Coral Gables zone and went to $100, but I got nothing. And here's where I made my mistake: I added Coconut Grove and bid $103,
  8. Amenities are: Free parking Free breakfast Free Internet Pet friendly Fitness center Pool(s) Self-service laundry Internet access Accessible bathroom Accessible parking I was expecting the Comfort Suites UCF, where we've stayed on a previous HOTWIRE reservation and which has a more convenient location for us. But we'll make the most of this. Our final price, including tax, is $92.95. This lowest before tax rate for this night on the hotel's own website is $90.25.
  9. I saw this hotel in PRICELINE EXPRESS Deals for $75 and thought that I might save a few more dollars by bidding. And I did! The total, with taxes and fees, was just $82.01. PRICELINE warned me twice that my low bid had little chance of succeeding, but I ignored all of that. I am no longer able to see the deal in Priceline Express Deals, but these are the hotel's amenities when I view my win under "My Trips" on PRICELINE's website: Free Internet (in Public Areas) Free Parking Pet Friendly Pool Non-Smoking Gym Restaurant
  10. This is a great deal, and I pounced because I was able to choose a king bed. The lowest rate for these nights that I saw on any other website was $152 -- for a room with 2 double beds. Amenities are: resort casino pool(s) business center Internet access spa beachfront hotel fitness center restaurant(s) laundry tennis accessible visually impaired accessible path of travel roll-in shower accessible bathroom accessible hearing impaired in-room accessibility accessible parking
  11. Amenities were: Free parking Pet friendly Pool Non-smoking Gym Restaurant Handicap accessible Business center We love this hotel and have stayed here previously. The lowest rate on the hotel's website for this night is a nonrefundable $105. I tried to name my price, bidding from $65 to $71 without success. I decided to take the Express deal, since it offered the choice of a king bed, which we prefer. I used the PRICELINE link on this website to make my purchase. Thanks!
  12. I landed this through PRICELINE EXPRESS Deals. Seemed like a great rate. The amenities were: Business centerRestaurantFree InternetIndoor or outdoor poolFitness centerThe lowest rate on the hotel's own website for this night is $151. Seeing the pool, I assumed that this was the Hyatt Regency, or maybe the Hilton. The Renaissance does indeed have a pool, but it's a rooftop outdoor pool that's already closed for the season. I think it would be more helpful if Priceline included pools in its listings only for stays when the pool is actually in service! I access Price.line through this site
  13. I had been watching Hot.wire and PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal rates for weeks and was finding fairly high prices for this weekend, focusing on the White House, Dupont Circle and Capitol Hill zones. Earlier today, the best 4* rate in this particular zone was $164. So, when I searched again and the $118 price popped up, I grabbed it immediately. The lowest available rate on Hyatt's website for these nights is $219. The amenities are: Free InternetIndoor pool(s)Fitness centerPool(s)Restaurant(s)Business centerInternet accessAccessibility for visually impairedAccessible for hearing impairedAcces
  14. Hot.wire's lowest rate for a compact was $26.95, at a total of $77.59. My total via Priceline is $65.51. I accessed Price.line through this site to begin my bidding.
  15. Well, it has been nearly a month since I first contacted Priceline about this issue, and I am still waiting for my 20% refund. This is very surprising from a company that typically seems rather efficient. I have received two follow-up emails claiming they are still "researching" my partial refund "request" -- which wasn't really a request on my part, but rather a customer service representative's offer, which I accepted. My fear is they'll drag the matter out until this trip has been completed, but I don't plan to let it go.
