  1. Well we decided to go ahead and bid, knowing we would get Trump and indeed we did. Crept up on it since there are so may re-bids. Did not save much, over the express deal which was 106/night at the time of bidding. Offer price: $96.00/night Hotel fee: $64.96 Number of rooms: 1 room Number of nights: 2 nights Room subtotal: $192.00 Taxes & fees: $35.24 Total charged today: $227.24 Hotel fee: $64.96 Total cost: $292.20 Used your PRICELINE links. Thanks for the help.
  2. Hi- Looking for vegas north strip. Normally I just bid, but it seems like the Trump gums up the strategy for the north strip if you want to be on the strip. Anyhow I punched in my dates 11/20-11/22 and i get two 5 stars: Option 1: Las Vegas Strip North Area Hotel 5 Star Guest Rating 8+ $102/night - 1 King Bed - Superior Room With City View - Free Wifi, Kitchenette Free internet Bed choice available Area: You'll find spectacular gaming and shopping along the north end of the Strip, stone's throw north of Flamingo Road. The casinos along the strip offer great restaurants, exceptional gaming, and a variety of entertaining shows. If the money you won is burning a hole in your pocket, come to the north end of the Strip to experience the best shopping in Vegas. Multiple golf clubs are also nearby. Guaranteed Amenities: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center Looks like resort fee is $32.48 night **Guessing Trump?*** Option 2: Las Vegas Strip North Area Casino Hotel 5 star Guest Rating: 9+ $188 night includes free parking Area: Same as above Guaranteed Amenities: Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Casino Fitness Center Looks like resort fee is $33.60 night My two questions: 1. Can you help identify the second 2. Is my assertion on bidding about getting the trump likely true? Thanks!
