  1. Much appreciated the $30 off Hotwire Coupon. Thanks BB! 4* Le Meridien Hotel, Arlington/Roslyn Rate posted was $97, but allowed bed choice. Selecting 2 queens took it to $113/nt. May 25-28 2 adults/1 child Boutique hotel Business center Fitness center Golf nearby Internet access Pet friendly Restaurant(s) Smoke-free rooms Spa services
  2. Got 4* in Forsyth Park Zone for $120. B Historic Savannah. HOTWIRE suggested that the last guest had gotten this hotel so took a chance. 3/1 -3/2. Used the Hotwire Coupon from Betterbidding to save an additional $15. Great deal. There appears to be some discrepancy as to whether B Historic is a 4* or not. Several other sites...Priceline, Hotel.com, Booking.com, Tripadvisor vary from 3* to 3.5* to 4*. Not sure I've every seen such variance amongst the main booking sites. Guess things are in flux at the hotel. Either way, it's exactly where I needed it to be and good price point. Free Internet, Suite, Indoor pool(s), Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower

Sheraton National $79/nt Jan 26-28 Non Smoking Shuttle Fitness Pool Restaurant Biz Center 120+ Trip Advisor reviews 3.5 TA rating 85% recommend
  6. Thanks for the assist. Actually when I went in to take the plunge, another option in Arlington appeared that was not initially available. Arlington is where I needed to be so went with that. Will add subsequent success. BTW, always use the BB.com PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links. Thanks.

  8. Was hoping for the Arlington Hyatt due to access to Metro. Not disappointed by any stretch but surprised given the Hyatt's showing up on recent PL purchases and availability on Hotwire. Started at $70 for 4* in Arlington, worked my way through the other DC area regions with no 4* for Oct 28 and 29, no luck. Finally added a third nite Oct 30 and hit on $90/nt. USed the BB PRICELINE link.
  9. Interesting, but I used a suggestion in another post and added 4 adults to the same search. Ended up with a "new" 4* option at the same price $185/nt, but this time the amenities showed as: Smoke Free, Fitness Ctr, Pool, Rest, Biz Center, High Speed Net >>>> These match those on the list for the Westin Also, after the new search, Trip Advisor detail showed that matched TA's Westin listing. SO... got 4* Westin Gateway in Arlington, VA Wed 5/6 - Sat 5/9 for $185/nt. Thanks as always.

  12. Thanks again as always for this great resource. Used BB HOTWIRE links. Got 3.5* Hotel Adagio in San Francisco. Details below: Union Square West 6/17-6/20 2A/0C Botique Smoke Free Fitness Center Restaurants Business Center Hi Speed Int Trip Advisor details matched Best available rate on the hotels website was $399/nt on first nite, but down to 229 second/third nites.
  13. 4*DC (Arlington) Jan 29 - Feb 1 Amenities No Smoking Fitness Pool Restaurant Biz Ctr Internet Trip Advisor 40+ Reviews, Most Recent Jan 08. Note that on TA.com there were actually 50+ reviews of Westin Arlington Gateway Westin Website shows $349/nite lowest rate for same period. Also had a shot at what I'm sure was Madison Loews (DC-Dupont/Embassy) for $142 for the same stay. Based on bid/stay at Madison last week this is a great hotel. But Westin is across the street from my office, so save lots of METRO time.
  14. Went through your HOTWIRE link, searched, got 5 hotels in the Dupont Circle area. Listed same amenities as before, but at $149 rather than $156. Took the plunge and got the Loews Madison as you guessed for $149. Definately was hoping for the Madera!!!! :) Although it doesnt appear to have been listed in Better Bidding's amenities, Madera does offer in-room spa services per their website. Immediately re-did search and got the $156 price option again. Wondering if this is for Madera. Seems odd for the fluctuation in price options like that. Probably just picked the wrong 4*. Such is life! Thanks for your help.
  15. Usually able to ID these. Need some help. Looking in DC-Dupont, 4*, Jan 14 - 17, $156 "Best value" Amenities: Boutique, Fitness, Restaurant, Business, Internet, and Spa TripAdvisor: 4 out of 5 stars, 80+Reviews, Last reviewed: Dec 07 Grazie!
