  1. Lowest rate on IHG.com was $143 ($162 net). Tax/fees were another $16/nite. With the BetterBidding's 5% PRICELINE EXPRESS code, I paid a total of $172.58 for TWO nights. Hotel Amenities Business Center Restaurant Airport Shuttle Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities I used the BiddingHelper.com link to book.
  2. There were no 3.5* on the pinned list for Hartford - Windsor Area. PRICELINE EXPRESS price was $58 (net $74). Failed bid at $50. Added zone and won bid at $52 ($65 net), saving $9 vs. PRICELINE EXPRESS. I used BB's PRICELINE link to start this booking.
  3. Priceline Express deal was $76 plus tax/fees ($96). Failed bids at $61, $65 and $69 using more zones that only had 2.5*. Won at $71 (net $88), saving ~$8 from PRICELINE EXPRESS deal. Not bad for five minutes' effort. Free Internet In Public Areas Indoor Pool Fitness Center Pets Allowed Restaurant Free parking I use BB's PRICELINE EXPRESS link to start my booking.
  4. Since this is the only 3.5* in downtown New Haven, it was an easy decision. Regular price is $134 plus tax. I paid $104 total inclusive of tax/fees. Amenities Free Internet Bed Choice Business Center Fitness Center Non Smoking Restaurant I used the PRICELINE link on BB to book.
  5. Bidded 4* at $80, $85, $90 and $93 by adding nearby zones. Hot.wire 4* in Financial District was $103 so I decided to buy PRICELINE EXPRESS at $101 when it was offered. Amenities included: Free InternetNon-smokingGymRestaurantHandicapBusiness CenterUsed both Hot.wire and PRICELINE links on this site to get started.

Confirmed for Taksim Square - Istiklal Avenue - Galatasary Lisesi Amenities: Indoor pool(s)Fitness centerPool(s)Restaurant(s)Business centerInternet accessTennis nearbyAccessibilityAccessible path of travelIn-room accessibilityAccessible bathroomAccessible parkingRoll-in showerI used the HOTWIRE link. The new feature makes it easier to see that I am still booking through your site.
  7. Saved about $100 from other booking sites, and over $150 from the Hilton site (non-refundable). 4.5 dot review on Tripadvisor helped narrow down the list to some very nice 5* properties (e.g. Intercontinental, Grand Hyatt, Ritz). Happy with the results. Amenities: Indoor poolInternetRestaurantBusiness serviceTennis nearbyThanks!
  8. Other notes: Hotwire thumbs up rating is 85% though it goes missing occasionally (...gathering reviews...) For these dates, the rate via other booking sites is $118 plus tax for total of $400 (saved $180!!) Self-parking is $13/night; valet is $20/night
  9. $62/nite plus $34.46 tax/fees for total of $220.46. It's a convention hotel but that's fine with me. I used the BB HOTWIRE link to book. Amenities: Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Laundry Facilities (self-service) High-Speed Internet Access Golf Nearby Spa Services
  10. I forgot to mention that the Days Inn website lowest price was $130 USD per nite for our dates.
  11. Wanted a hotel within walking distance to the Old Montreal sites. Based upon the reviews, the Days Inn fits the bill. Amenities: Smoke-free, Restaurant, Business Center, High Speed Internet, and Roll In Shower. Total including tax/fees was $175.38 for two nights. Used the HOTWIRE link to book. Thanks.
  12. For reference, HW 3* was $76 plus tax/fees ($97). 95% HW approval rating. First bid of $65 was accepted. Total plus tax/fees $84.61. Tripadvisor rating 4/5 was also shown on HW. Best Western Internet Rate was $131 before tax. Used the PRICELINE link to book. Thanks!
  13. Hotwire 3* was going for $79 plus tax/fees. Priceline had 5 out of 6 active zones of which 2 zones had 3* or higher. Thus, I had 4 bids. First bid of $65 was accepted. Total plus fees was $78.90. Holiday Inn website's lowest price was $130 excluding tax. Nice savings. I used the PRICELINE link on this site. Thanks.
  14. After getting rejected on PL for a 3.5* in the Boston North area at $62, $66 and $70, I decided to go with HW. Interestingly, I used two browsers without signing into HW. In Firefox, I started the process with the better bidding HOTWIRE link each time and got a price of $69 for a 3.5*. In IE, HW gave me a price of $74. Dynamic pricing on Internet sites at work! Trip total = $83.38 ($14.38 tax & fees) Sheraton website prepaid rate is $130 plus tax. Amenities Smoke Free Rooms Restaurant(s) Business Center High-Speed Internet Access Golf Nearby Tennis Nearby Free Parking
  15. Hotwire had a 3.5* for $75++ or $94.16. Based upon the amenities, the hotel was likely the Holiday Inn near the Vandy campus where I will be attending a football game. The frugal side of me decided to see if Priceline can do better. Bids for 4* and 3.5* at $60 were rejected, and 3* was accepted. Taxes & fees brought the total to $79.23. Valet parking is $24 so that bumps it over the HI that has free parking. The Doubletree is much closer to all the downtown action so I'm happy with the results, especially when the hotel's web rates start at $170. I used the site's link to start my bidding. Thanks!
