  3. This was a new one - not yet on the Better Bidding hotwire hotel list for this area. Here are the amenities that showed for the Comfort Inn Matthews - Charlotte, booked today: Free breakfast Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Business center Self-service laundry
  4. HOTWIRE had a 4* (looked like the Sofitel) in the same zone for $70, so I was willing to go to $63 on PRICELINE (my arbitrary amount). Started bidding at $46, kept adding non-4* zones until I hit it at $60. As always, I used the betterbidding HOTWIRE and PRICELINE QuickQuote links above to get started.
  5. Bidding on both Bloomington areas. Rejected on $40, $41, and $42 before $43 was accepted. Happy with this price. Hotwire had the Raddison MoA (apparently) for $57 for the same night. I think that hotel is a bit nicer (still 3.5*), but I'm happy to spend the $15 on something else. Used the BetterBidding link to start my bidding, of course.
  6. Great tip! Thanks very much...I'll be traveling w/ my family and that would be perfect.
  7. Amenities listed... Smoke Free, Airport Shuttle, Complimentary Breakfast, Fitness Center, Business Center, Laundry Facilities, Hi-Speed Internet, Golf Nearby
  8. Amenities listed: Smoke Free, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Hi-speed Internet, Golf Nearby This hotel is all suites, though it wasn't listed in the amenities. Only about 10 miles from O'Hare. Very happy with this price...and glad to support this site by using the betterbidding HOTWIRE link.
  9. Got the Holiday Inn Express in Onalaska for $65/night. The amenities listed were: Smoke Free Rooms Complimentary Breakfast Fitness Center Pool(s) Business Center Laundry Facilities (self-service) High-Speed Internet Access Golf Nearby And of course, I used the betterbidding.com HOTWIRE link when I booked.
  10. Started bidding today at $60 on 4* Downtown Minneapolis. Added zones one at a time and made bids of $64, 66, 68, 70, 72, 74, 76, 78, and finally hit on $80 and got the Minneapolis Grand. Have stayed here before (thanks to priceline) and my wife loved it, so we're happy to have gotten it again on what seems to be a fairly busy night for downtown hotels. Started our bidding using the betterbidding PRICELINE link. Happy Bidding all... -Tim
  11. I've had success with this hotel in the past...never paid this much, but I can't complain - still more than half off. The nice thing about bidding for a 4* in the twin cities is you can currently bid 13 times a day - lots of zones, and only 2 offer 4*'s I started bidding at $42, then 44, 46, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62, 64, 66, and then hit it on my last chance with $70. Of course, I used the better bidding PRICELINE link to start with. -Tim

  13. Right again! I decided to book this one, final price was $42/night, and it did turn out to be the Hilton Garden Inn - Hoffman Estates. And of course I used your HOTWIRE link to make my purchase. Looks like a nice hotel, and the price is definitely right. Thanks for all your help!
  14. Hotwire gave me an offer of $44 for a 3* hotel in Hoffman Estates for 4/8/08 - 4/11/08. Listed amenities are: Fitness Center Pool Restaurant Business Center Laundry High Speed Internet I don't see an exact match on the IL Hotwire hotel lists. Anyone have an y other info? Thanks a lot!
  15. 1st bid = $85 (Millenium Park, Loop, Grant Park) rejected 2nd bid = $90 (above + NMA River North) accepted Quite happy with the price. But I'll need to find cheaper parking than what they charge at the hotel (something like $40 or $50).
