  1. This is a new hotel for the Hotwire list. The Berkeley Hotel 1200 E. Cary Street Richmond, VA, 23219 Amenities: Fitness Center Laundry Facilities Restaurant Business Center According to the hotel's website, they also offer free high-speed wireless internet access, though this wasn't noted on HOTWIRE. Base rate for a double room appears to be about $170, so this was a great deal. Nice location, too. Thanks, BB!
  2. Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers 301 East North Water Street Chicago, IL 60611 Hotel rate per night: $119.00 Nights: 2 Rooms: 1 Subtotal: $238.00 Tax recovery charges and fees: $39.92 Total price: $277.92 Amenities: Fitness Center, Restaurant, Business Center, High-Speed Internet Access Was not marked as a Customer Favorite, and no TripAdvisor rating was listed. I started my search through BetterBidding's HOTWIRE link. (Going to Chicago to celebrate my birthday, so here's hoping the hotel is as amazing as it looks!) Cheers.

Cheers!
  5. 4* Downtown Bid $50, rejected "If you are willing to raise your price by $14, you can try the same request again right now." Bid $64, accepted Total charges: $80.86 Booked through the link on SavingsBarn.com. Thanks!
  6. Bid $50, 3* Central Birmingham, rejected Bid $55, added 2.5*, accepted This is a new hotel for the Priceline Hotel List. Courtyard Birmingham Downtown At UAB 1820 5th Ave S Birmingham, AL 35233 Subtotal: $55.00 Taxes and Service Fees: $15.76 Total Charges: $70.76 Going rate on various websites appears to hover around $140 after taxes - pretty awesome discount. The Courtyard is actually a fair bit closer to my destination (a music venue on 3rd Ave & 37th St S) than any of the previously found Priceline hotels, which is nice. Bonus: it's ranked #2 on TripAdvisor, so hopefully that's a good sign -- free WiFi, too! Booked through the PRICELINE link at SavingsBarn. Thanks!
  7. Bid $45 DT, rejected Bid $50 DT, rejected Bid $52, added Easton, rejected Bid $58, added OSU, rejected Bid $65, added Dublin, accepted Total Charges: $160.41 Hyatt Regency Columbus Downtown Columbus 350 North High Street Columbus, Ohio 43215 614-463-1234 Thanks for the bidding tips! I booked through SavingsBarn.
  8. New hotel for Madison (Central): Sheraton Madison Hotel 706 John Nolen Dr. Madison, Wisconsin 53713 (608) 251-2300 Amenities: Fitness Center Pool Restaurant Business Center High-speed Internet Access Regular rates are around $200, so this seems to be a pretty good deal, though the reviews on TripAdvisor are less than promising. My only real qualm is that this is listed as a "central" Madison hotel, yet it's 2.5 miles away from downtown. Oh well. I booked using Better Bidding's HOTWIRE link.
  9. Westin St. Francis 335 Powell Street San Francisco, California 94102 Amenities: Fitness Center, Restaurant, Business Center Customer Favorite, TripAdvisor rating of 3.5 out of 5. After taxes/fees, the total came to $674.69 for 5 nights (about $135/night). This is well over half off the minimum standard rate of $1,534.38 after taxes for the same time period (about $307/night). Great deal, especially considering a pretty big music festival and the Chinese New Year parade are both happening during my stay. I started my search through BB's Hotwire link. Cheers!
  10. Hilton San Francisco and Towers 333 O'Farrell Street San Francisco, California 94102 Amenities: Fitness Center, Pool, Restaurant, Business Center Also a Customer Favorite with a TripAdvisor rating of 4.0 out of 5. After taxes/fees, the total came to $288 for 2 nights. I started my search through BB's Hotwire link. Thanks very much! These boards have been an invaluable resource for me when I book my travel.
  11. Was looking for 1 night at a 4* in the Downtown-Riverfront area. First offer of $51 was rejected. Added University-Norwood area and rebid to $58, was rejected. Added Airport-Florence area, rebid to $65 and was accepted. It was very easy to rebid for a 4* in Cincinnati, as Downtown-Riverfront is currently the only area offering 4* hotels. The total, after taxes & fees, came to $83.08. Going rate at the Westin for that night is about $160 after taxes, so I am very pleased. I also started my search through SavingsBarn]. Thanks BB!
