  2. Used the HOTWIRE link to get the 3.5* Times Square hotel, which turned out to be the Belvedere, like you thought. End price was $217/night - so it went down a few dollars from when I first looked at it. Thanks for the assistance!
  3. Thanks! That certainly helps. There's another listing I'd like to try and ID if possible. 3*, Mid Town Central, on Hotwire is says $210/night, but the bidding helper says $212. Amenities are listed as: Smoke Free Rooms, Business Center, Internet access, Kitchenette, Accessible for the deaf, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower. Thanks in advance.
  4. 3.5* Times Square Here they are: Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Restaurant(s), Business Center, Self service laundry, Internet access, Accessible for the blind, Accessible for the deaf, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower The price has dropped $1, down to $224. :)
  5. The 3.5* hotel in Times Square for $225 has the following amenities: - Smoke Free Rooms - Self-Service Laundry - Fitness Center - Internet Access - Restaurant(s) - Business Center It's also listed as being accessible for the deaf and blind And it has 85% positive Hotwire customer ratings, and is rated 4.0/5.0 on TripAdvisor I'd appreciate it if you could ID the listing. Thanks.
  6. Not really. There's a 3.5 star for $225/night in Times Square. I was hoping to pay less than that obviously.
  7. Hmmm. I've never had a problem getting 2 beds (I've used Priceline before, just not with this site), but that was in CA, where beds must be plentiful. :) Seeing as how I need to make sure my kids have a place to sleep, I guess I need to go with HOTWIRE, but I don't have any experience using that site. And breakfast isn't a must by any means.
  8. Hi All. Looking for advice for an upcoming family trip (2 adults, 2 kids - 11&8) to Manhattan from 4/9 to 4/13. Budget: Below $150-200/night - prefer to stay on the low end of that, but I know that rates start to go up in April. Desired Star level: 3.5-4* (would prefer 4*) Acceptable zones: Upper East Side, Mid Town East, Central Park South, Mid Town West, Times Square (we have relatives that live on the UES, but are fine being closer to the touristy sites) Breakfast included would be great, but not absolutely required.
