  1. Used PRICELINE link to bid 2.5* DC-Silver Spring at $52. Rejected with counter offer to raise bid to $62 and try immediately. Used link again to add DC-Northeast zone and raise 2.5* bid to $55. Won upgrade to 3.5* Doubletree. Solid savings, and I hope they will allow me two beds. Offer price:$55.00/night Number of rooms:1 room Number of nights:1 night Room subtotal:$55.00 Taxes & fees:$14.33 Total charged:$69.33 Savings:You saved 35%* Thanks, BetterBidding!
  2. Whoops, those are the amenities, and that's the property. Used the PRICELINE link and saved $66.93 over Priceline non-opaque, non-refundable price. Thanks! Grande Villas Resort By Diamond Resorts 3.5 star Hotel 12118 Turtle Cay Circle, Lake Buena Vista , FL , United States Amenities: Free Parking Outdoor Pool Gym Room price:$93.00 avg./night
  3. Hi, BetterBidding. Looking for a two bedroom condo and found this Express Deal I believe is Grande Villas. Can you give me your assessment? 8+ Guest Rating and $12 nightly mandatory fee. Thanks!!
  4. Saw what appeared to be this Holiday Inn offered as a PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal for $41 a night in the Celebration zone, so I bid $40 on Name Your Own Price and won 1st bid. Holiday Inn Orlando SW - Celebration Offer price:$40.00/night Adjusted room price (bid) with Hotel Fee Credit:$39.97/night Hotel fee:$17.03 Number of rooms:1 room Number of nights:1 night Room subtotal:$40.00 Taxes & fees:$10.60 Hotel fee credit:- $0.03 Total charged today:$50.57 Total cost:$67.60 I think I saved about $4 instead of using the PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal or buying straight out from the non-opaque PRICELINE hotel listing. Started bid using board link. Thanks, Betterbidding!!
  5. Using HOTWIRE link, searched for 1 room with 4 adults. Chose 2-bedroom suite under amenities and clicked on $70 3* condo with 85% satisfaction listing. Banner appears saying "Book soon! The last person got the Bryan's Spanish Cove" and when I checked out TripAdvisor and the property website, decided to take a chance it was the exact property I would win. Bingo! Using BiddingHelper.com: FULL AMENITIES: Free parking, 2-bedroom suite, Full kitchen, Air conditioning, Laundry in room, Pool(s), Front desk, Internet access, Golf nearby, Kitchenette Room $140.00 ($70.00 per night x 2 nights x 1 room) Taxes & fees$32.04 Hotwire Total (USD)$172.04 Resort fee$18.00 (Due at hotel) Trip total (USD)$190.04 Trip total per night (USD)$95.02 (includes resort fee) Thanks BetterBidding!!
  6. Aww. Thanks for the concern. Stuff happens and sometimes it's not so good...but thankfully I had not made a non-refundable travel plan to add to my stress. This board has saved me time and time again! Sure appreciate you, BetterBidding!
  7. Thanks; always begin my searches using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links from the board. Sure would have been great if it was a true reveal!
  8. Thread closed; am currently browsing various dates and properties on both Priceline and Hotwire (too many to ask for assistance at this time). Just curious about the reliability of that Hotwire header when it occasionally appears.... Thanks for your valuable service!
  9. Trip was cancelled due to family emergency. Thanks, BetterBidding!
  10. Hello Better Bidding, I haven't tried Hotwire for a while and was intrigued that when you choose a Hot Rate Hotel hidden property, a banner appears across the page that urges one, "Book soon!The last person got (revealed name of property). Is this reliable? Thanks for all you assistance!
  11. Thinking this might be the Courtyard Orlando South at John Young Parkway....

  15. Started at the board PRICELINE link and named my own price ($55) to extend an existing one night reservation (see other post). For some reason, the "Add a Night" link on my Priceline confirmation was a broken link. The front desk did not make me check out and in again to stay a total of three nights, they handled it with no bother to me. Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh South Side 3 out of 5 star Hotel 20 South Tenth Street, Pittsburgh , PA Check-in: Wed, Jan 20, 2016 - After 03:00 PM Check-out: Fri, Jan 22, 2016 - 12:00 PM Offer price: $55.00/night Number of rooms: 1 room Number of nights: 2 nights Room subtotal: $110.00 Taxes & fees: $23.10 Total charged today: $133.10 Woot! PRICELINE saved me a bunch of dough on this trip!
