I'm aware of that, thanks. I've stayed there a couple of times - many rooms are windowless and the front desk staff can be downright rude. But the place is clean, the mattresses are comfy, the location is reasonable and $49 is a very good price for NOLA. Furthermore, if you use your room just to take a shower and crash after overindulging in adult beverages in the Quarter, you will hardly notice that the window faces an internal corridor and not the street.
I've just took one of their PRICELINE EXPRESS Deals. I am not particularly found of the Ambassador and their windowless rooms, but for that price I would stay there anytime. And yes, I've initiated the deal using the PRICELINE link on this forum :)
Amenities: Smoke free, Fitness, Pool, Restaurant, Business center, Internet Without bed choice the price would have been $101. I swear that I've initiated the transaction via the HOTWIRE link in this website! :)
I've just shot a $60 bid and they counter offered $75. It's a bit distant from the hotel where I'll be attending a conference (Embassy Suites), but I guess I can pay a lot of cab fares with the almost $200/day I'm saving :)
You can buy a Virgin Mobile prepaid phone for as low as $10 - and get it back in air time. If you are interested in keep your number alive for futures trips, you just have to top up it with $15 every 3 months. If keeping the same number is not important to you, you can just let it expire (forfeiting any remaining credit) and reativate it on your next trip.
