  6. I ended up booking through HOTWIRE.3 *hotel south of The strip for $36 per night,I was pretty sure it was The Excalibur,and I was right.Reviews on tripadvisor are ok and more importantly it's in a save area.After your advice I found more negative comments online about the stratosphere area,especially at night so not a good idea. Amenities listed for The Excalibur: Free Internet/Free parking Casino Fitness Business Center Golf nearby Pool Restaurant Thanks again for all the help:)
  7. Thanks for all the advice.I wish I could spend more but I really have to stay within my budget. I'm thinking about booking the stratosphere,with the priceline express deal that would be $31.I know the stratosphere is more off the strip,but I saw there is a monorail about 10 min from the hotel.I'll let you know what I do.Thanks again.
  8. No I've never been to Vegas before.But since I'm travelling alone and I will be travelling through the states for a few weeks I'm trying to keep the costs of accomodations low. I know the Downtown-fremont st. area isn't that close to the strip,but the downtown grand has great reviews,and some of the hotels like Circus Circus,Stratosphere,Westgate etc.are more central and closer to the strip,but lots of negative reviews.So I'm confused :) I would say USD 40 is my absolute max budget ( before fees etc) I'm realistic so I know this won't get me a great hotel near the strip. Don't know if bidding would be a good idea?
  9. Hey everyone, The last few days I've been searching for a hotel in Vegas.I will be staying there from 5/16 -5/20. Found a nice deal on priceline for the downtown grand,pretty easy to ID since it is the only 3.5 * hotel in the downtown/fremont area. But I just saw a 3 * hotel East of the strip for $53.If I click on it the prices changes to $46. Amenities listed are : Business Center/Restaurant/Free internet/Indoor or outdoor pool/Casino/Fitness center. Bed choice : Room assigned at check in -Sleeps 2 adults - 2 beds requested Room assigned at check in -Sleeps 2 adults -1 bed requested. Guest score 8.0 out of 10 guest favorite. It's not clear if this hotel charges a resort fee,usually you see the total price that priceline charges and then a additional price listed as the resort fee wich will be charged by the hotel at the end of your stay. If there is no fee at all this hotel will be the same price as the downtown grand so I'm not sure what to do.The 3* hotels east of the strip don't have great reviews,except for the Hyatt,so I really don't know what I should do.Any help is welcome ;) Thanks in advance .
  10. Saw a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal today for 3* in the midtown west area.Only amenitie listed was :Gym.So I already figured that it would be The Ameritania,and since it has great reviews on tripadvisor I decided to take the risk :D . 62 euro's per night so that would be around $74. Thanks again for your advice.
  11. I think I will go for the express deal.The previous times I went to New york I always stayed in 1 hotel the whole trip,but then you always kind of stay in the same area,go to the same shops etc,so that's why I thought about switching hotels,not specifically for saving money. Good to know that rates probably won't drop,on a lot of other sites they always advice to take risk and book last-minute to save but I already thought for New york that wouldn't be the case. Thanks for the info and I'll let you know what I'll do.I have to go to sleep now because I have a nightshift but I think I will book tomorrow morning.
  12. Yes I think it's the Belleclaire too.So that's why I tried to bid a little lower than on the express deal,and hoped they would accept my offer,but no luck yet. I'm also wondering what's the best thing to do,book a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal or take a risk and wait a little longer and hope the rates will drop last-minute.Since I'm travelling alone I have to pay for everything myself so that's why I really want to try to have the best price possible.
  13. Sorry for not following-up the last time,complety forgot.I posted in the other thread what I ended up doing for that stay.The bidding on priceline didn't work out then but I decided to give it another try now. The express deal is listed for $69,I started bidding around $53,then to $56,then to $58.I added zones everytime,so the last bid was $58 for the upper west side/Times square area/empire area
  14. Booked through HOTWIRE,ended up in the New yorker.Good price and a very nice hotel.
  15. Forgot to mention the dates, 1/19 till 1/26. Since I want to explore different area's of New york,I don't mind switching hotels in the middle of my stay,some of the express deals are lower when I check dates from 1/19 till 1/22.
