Thanks, everyone! thereuare and dahammer, I really like the idea of commuting in from Jersey City. The Hyatt looks great--seems like people have been pleased with it. As far as it being deserted on the weekends, I can't see that being a big problem as we're pretty low maintenance people who want to spend a lot of time sightseeing and such. If my boyfriend likes this idea I'll probably try bidding for it in the next week or so when we can be absolutely sure of our dates. Actually, I say I'd bid for it, but now that I look at the Priceline list here, it includes a Doubletree in the same star quality in that section. Is that also a good hotel, or am I better off going with Hotwire where it's more likely to give me the Hyatt? Am I reading this wrong? Otherwise, if he would rather stay in the city, I'll post back here for bidding help within NYC. This has already been a big help--this is great!
