  1. #27 on trip advisor.... I'm not too worried. Bed comfort and location are the most important to me and sounded like no one had any complaints there. Service is probably the lowest priority on my list. Things like a blower dryer, which are super important to me, I bring with. Jetsetter was for a Luxury King Room which sounds really nice and a big advantage over bidding since I also REALLY wanted a king bed. The extra 10% was for any New York hotel on Jetsetter.
  2. This is a really entertaining read. I just booked an NYC trip, but I went with Jetsetter. Almost did the travelzoo deal which is also very good.

  3. I was looking up info for someone else's post and I noticed a new 5* in Denver. Two new 5* hotels were built in the last few years. (Ritz and Four Seasons) Both allow pets and have 4.5 rating on Trip Advisor. The results page said "only 3 rooms left", Four Seasons had the same note on Priceline, so I'll guess Four Seasons. Here's the info from Hotwire 4.5 out of 5 Traveler rating provided by TripAdvisor Amenities: (full list) Pet friendly Accessible for the blind Accessible for the deaf Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Wheelchair accessible Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking Roll-in shower Trip Info: Location: Greater Downtown Denver Star rating: 5-star Check-in date: Sun, May 26 Check-out date: Mon, May 27 Amenities: See all amenities Price summary Hotel Rate per night: $250.00 Nights: 1 Rooms: 1 Tax recovery charges & fees: $56.76 Subtotal: $306.76 Trip total: $306.76
  4. I've stayed here on a hotwire and non-hotwire rates before. The one time I was not upgraded was on a non-Hotwire rate during a busy weekend. The queen petite room is still very nice and has a full size bathroom with soaking tub. It depends on how busy the hotel is. They upgraded me to a king room before for free and a corner suite for $50. If there are lots of rooms available on the website you should be fine, but there is no way to know for sure.
  5. I would guess Ameristar. It's the only nice place up there that could be close to 4*.
  6. We had a wonderful trip. I asked nicely and they upgraded us for free to an ocean view. Very relaxing environment and everyone was very friendly. Also they let us check in a few hours early which was very helpful. We had lots of family visiting and the room was perfect with lots of additional seating. Never felt like I was getting the HOTWIRE treatment.
  7. Just stayed at PH and wow, for sure the nicest place I have ever stayed. We loved being so close to Crystal Cove, which is full of adventures. The Pelican Hill does have free internet at the property so it could show up on the amenities. I think if you read the reviews there are good clues to which resort it is. Pelican Hotwire Reviews " amazing gelato" (daily onsite made gelato) " call for ice and pay for coffee" ($10 for coffee in room, no ice machine) " don't nickel and dime you on internet, parking " (free valet parking) "upgraded to a 2100 square foot villa" (also look for bungalow comments) It's also a secure property with a guard gate to the "rooms" which are setup like small town homes, so you park right outside your room. All the rooms have private balconies and are at least 850 sqft.
  8. Very excited about this win! Hotel website had rooms starting at $435. The best part is that you don't get stuck with a bunch of other fees like most hotels in this area. Free parking, free internet and no resort fee. Also the standard rooms (bungalows) look amazing! Used HOTWIRE link, thank you! There was another 5* for $235 in the Laguna Beach area with the same amenities below but a roll in shower in place of handicap parking and 4.5 trip advisor (no hotwire reviews). Little curious what that one was. 5-star Hotel in Corona del Mar - Newport Coast This Hotel features the following amenities: Accessible path of travel <amenity names only please... not descriptions> In-room accessibility Accessible path from the room entrance to the window, the bed and the bathroom; accessible hardware and minimal resistance to open the door; accessible temperature controls and window coverings Wheelchair accessible Wheelchair accessible common areas Accessible bathroom Raised toilet, hand-held shower and grab bars at the tub and toilet Handicapped parking <amenity names only please... not descriptions>
  9. you can walk over to the Residence Inn next door for free breakfast, I stayed there and I don't think they care
  10. the king and the double queen rooms both have pull out sofa's, they are in the sunken living rooms
  11. 10/15/2011 to 10/17/2011 2 rooms Saturday to Monday bid 110 -rejected added boulder strip 115 -rejected I've been waiting for Wynn's 72 hour sale to be over. I'd really like to stay in the Palazzo, Venetian would also be fine. I just don't want to end up in a smoking room at the Wynn :S. I know it's not guaranteed, but the Palazzo and Venetian are 239/night, $10 less than the Wynn. Yesterday Wynn was $239/night. Maybe I'll wait till tomorrow, just to be sure the Wynn prices are out of the system. The Trump tower is on Hotwire, which is not an option. I used the PRICELINE link. I'll keep you posted. I have two rooms reserved at the Palazzo now, but I'd sure love to get them at half price! Thanks
  12. wow that is a really good deal, maybe I'll change the dates of my trip. I guess not a lot of people want to gamble on Sept 11th
  13. So before I wouldn't bid for Vegas cause there was always a hotel in the zone I did not want to stay at. I think I'm going to go for Las Vegas (Strip North) 5* Palazzo REVIEW 5* Venetian REVIEW 5* Wynn REVIEW Question, Does anyone know when block rooms get released? Usually I think it's about 30-day, just hoping to bid when there is high supply. :)
  14. I had a great stay here! The room was huge. Pull out couch in the living room. They were not able to check us in till 4:30 (check-in is at 4). They were very sorry about it and gave us a $50 credit, score! The ski lift is right outside the main lobby, covered parking only $10 thru Beaver Run.
