  1. I did go to the look up tool, and it appears to be the Holiday Inn Oceanfront Hotel. A shaky 3*, but at that price, not sure if even Priceline can touch it. Thanks for the assistance.
  2. It's been a while since I've posted here, but am trying to get a Beachfront Hotel in Cocoa Beach or Melbourne from March 17-20. I tried Cocoa Beach (more zones and rebids -4 vs 2 in Melbourne, plus rather not get Hilton Rialto) and went up to $55 but no success yet. I also did 2.5* (thinking the Holiday Inn) to $48 but nothing either. Just wondering if I'm too low $ wise b/c of the week before Easter. The cheapest I've seen any webrates for a 3* Beach Hotel is $155 for the Hilton. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, when I went to EasyClickTravel I found a 3* 'Off the Record' hotel
  3. Looking for a Hotel for a friend for the Marine Corps Marathon in late October. I see a 3* Best Value on Hotwire in Alexandria/Old Town that is $81/night. The amenities are Airport Shuttle, Restaurant, Pool, Fitness, Hi-speed net, and Tennis nearby. Any idea what it is? Thanks for the help!
  4. Thank you Thereuare! Despite my being a Wisconsin grad, I love all the things you do here :) It was great knowing that the Hotel I bid on was one that I've stayed at before. Best part is getting it for 1/2 the rate of three years ago :) I also expected that you could do something about editing the title. Thanks again.
  5. I thought I could edit my orginal post, but alas, I'm not knowing how... Anyways, I did go for the 2* and it was the Homestead Studio Suites for $31. With the Gift card, I mananged to pay, with taxes and fees, $30.95! Good location for me as well. Thanks for the help!
  6. Ok, I started out looking for a 2.5-3* in Northbrook for one night on 6/28/05. Most of the 3* were sold out when I checked rates. Tried bidding w/ free rebids for Gurnee and Libertyville (on P-L), and bid up to $36 with no luck. Now most of the 2.5* in area are sold out as well, so I'm trying for a different strategy. Idea 1 is to try Priceline for Chicago-O'Hare, since there seems to be good availability. For 3* hotels - $116 Wyndham, $115 Four Points, and $109 for Ramada. Idea 2 is 2.5 or 3* in Oak Brook/Downers Grove on P-L, b/c although I'll be in Northbrook for dinner on the 28th, the ne
  7. When I go to Boston Metro-West area, I get 4 bidding zones; Bedford-Burlington, Lexington-Concord, Natick-Framington, and Newton-Waltham. All four zones have 3* Hotels, but only Newton-Waltham has a 4* possibility. This intrigues me b/c the location of the zone and the 3 free re-bid zones make it very appealing for a bid. My family is planning to travel and be in Massachusetts in July (17-19), and with a vehicle and our plans, a stay in the near suburbs would work better for us than spending $ to stay downtown and deal with parking. I know the Westin is in Waltham, but it's only 3* on Travelo
  8. My original choice was 3* Downtown Madison on PL. 2 of the 3 hotels I looked at were booked (Concourse and Hilton), leaving only the Sheraton. Saw the post on the East side 3* on Hotwire and was intrigued and tried to help identify the hotel. Either zone would've been fine, but now we will be unable to stay in Madison that night. Sorry if there was any confusion on my part.
  9. As I mentioned above, I am looking for a hotel for Saturday 5/28 in Madison. Prefer to stay downtown b/c I was going to run the mad City 1/2 marathon the next day. But when looking at Hotwire for May 28th, a Hotel with the same amenities that betsyjane mentioned came up, so I tried to ID it. Went into vacation packages for Hotwire, and came up with the Holiday Inn having the same amenities. As for my particular bid strategy, Hotwire has a 3* Central Madison hotel available that I believe is the Clarion (Restaurant, Pool, Fitness) for $84, and a 3* Madison East for $49 (Restaurant, Pool, Fitne
  10. For May, 28, 2005, this Hotel (3* Madison East, w/ Amenities of Restaurant, Pool & Fitness Center) is $49 on Hotwire. I believe it is the same hotel as the original poster HERE. Might it be the Holiday Inn? Those are the same amenities in the vacation package for same dates. I'd like to know too, and whether I'd be better off bidding Hotwire or Priceline. I'm looking for a 2.5 or 3* Hotel for one night on the 28th.
  11. Yes, I'm back at trying to find a property for the Boston Marathon in April. I saw this listed on Hotwire today, and am wondering if it is either the Marriott Courtyard or the Holiday Inn, both in Brookline. The amenities listed are as follows: 3* Restaurant, Pool, Fitness, Business Center Looking at both of these properties, it appears that they both have the amenities listed. The lowest rate for the available dates at the Courtyard is $179, and $161 for the Holiday Inn. Anybody have a clue as to if it is one or the other, or a totally different hotel? I would be real happy with $79 for eithe
  12. I may truly be mad for trying this, but I shudder when it comes to paying $200 or more for a Hotel room, so I gotta ask.. I qualified to run the Boston Marathon for next April, and plan to travel and stay there from April 16-19. I have checked rates for various hotels in the 4 main areas I consider acceptable (Back Bay, Downtown, Cambridge and Logan Airport), and the best rates are as follows: Logan Hilton (4*) $159, Embassy Suites $149, Comfort Inn $134; Downtown Omni Parker $199, Hyatt $186; Back Bay Hilton $259, Sheraton $299; Cambridge Doubletree @ MIT $179, Hyatt $190, Radiss
  13. No, I decided to stay here myself, and let everyone else be at the Holiday Inn :) . For the $70 I'm saving the company, I don't think anyone will mind. If my review is positive, I'll have to ask other co-workers if they want to bid to stay there on future trips.
  14. Got this on my 1st bid, wow! Now I don't have to hunt around for breakfast in the morning!
