Won on my first try but had to wait 15 minutes to find out the result of my offer. First time that's ever happened on PL for me. Pleased with the win! I clicked through the BB site PRICELINE links first, as always.
Tried to bid @ $87 per night, wasn't successful and I really wanted the Darcy. Amenities listed were: pet friendly, smoke-free rooms, bed choice and fitness facility. I clicked through the BB link and used the coupon for an additional 5% off. Total for three nights was $369.78. I'm super excited about this upcoming stay!🤗
I picked the 3.5* Boutique, Smoke-Free, Fitness and HS Internet and it was the Ameritania. Total was $596.83. I would have been happy with this hotel or the Belvedere (which HW stated that the last person won) and am looking forward to our trip. Thanks for the awesome help!
Found this listed on HOTWIRE. I used the BiddingHelper.com link and this came up:
Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Internet access
The last person got the Belvedere, but it isn't listed as a boutique hotel.
My husband never gets involved. My friend, however... Consider this request closed.
Guess she'd like to stay nearer to Times Square. Thanks for the help. I will be submitting a question in the Hotwire forum shortly.
I have been using B.B. for years and am confident that the HOTWIRE option is also tryp. This is ideal but I’m not sure my friend will share a bed. The price is amazing as well.
Do you recommend actually bidding (I’ve found less success with this method in the last couple of years) or using hw/PRICELINE EXPRESS options?
thanks for all of your help!
Looked in the list of hotels on BB and didn't see a 3.5* hotel for this area. Going on a girl's trip for my first time and want to stay near theater district. Gets 7+ for reviews. Price is for two double beds
Amenities listed are:
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
Chobo2 I've been bidding for about four days. I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to hotel stays, but that is all due to the vast knowledge at betterbidding. When I was searching I knew that I wanted free parking and breakfast. I had bid as high as $77 for a 3.5* with zero success, so I knew that by being promised at least an 8+ rating for a 3* and also getting parking and breakfast there wouldnt be that big of a difference.
Good luck with your quest!
I've been trying for days to bid 3.5* in the area using re-bid strategies. With no luck, I (on a whim) went down a tick, bid $57 and won immediately. Super happy with this win. Now to book my downtown Portland stay for the following two days...
And I did begin my bidding on betterbidding, as always. :)
My dates are for July 28-31 for one room. I've been offered via Priceline.Express 3.5* with no amenities listed (?!) for $128 per night in Gaslamp Quarter South/convention center. Perhaps the Hilton? Thanks!! Clicked the links so I'm ready for your awesomeness!! :)
I knew I'd forgotten to do something. Here you are: Free Internet Smoke Free Rooms Restaurant(s) Business Center High-Speed Internet Access Accessible for the blind Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking Roll-in shower
Having stayed at this hotel before, I was pleased to win this one. I added two imaginary children in order to score two beds. :lol: I also, as always, used the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on betterbidding.com.
