  1. Thereuare, your nephew isn't on the Redmond team, is he? Small deleted played All-Stars in the 9-10 league (eliminated in districts, and his season ended 7/28), and we've been trying (unsuccessfully) to pay attention to the Redmond 11-12 yr old team, as they were on ESPN one night a week or so ago, they beat the Idaho team for PacNW I believe. We'll be in Williamsport Sunday Aug 22 and are wondering who we will watch while there. You accomplished a LOT on your trip! Fun!
  2. I'll add another "best rate guarantee" program to the above thread, I have had three successful nights booked, which is triprewards.com (Cendant hotels, incl. Ramada, Howard Johnson, Super 8, Days Inn, Wingate, and a few others.) This is the next best thing to Hotwire's guarantee, as if you find a lower rate, you get your night free. FREE. I booked one night at Ramada on the ocean, Satellite Beach FL, found a rate 11 cents lower, and it was honored for a free stay (July 11). My bill really was zero at checkout, and there have been no charges to my credit card. So...I have booked the How
  3. We were very pleased with this hotel. The top two reasons we wanted this hotel were the free parking, and the microwave and refrigerator in the room. The hotel was not difficult to find, it was off exit 2 on I-405 South, and there was a Summerfield Suites, Townplace Suites, and Larkspur Landing, basically all sharing the same parking lot. The staff was very friendly. They knew we were going to the baseball games, and asked upon our return if we had a good time. We were given driving directions (some spoken -- buyer beware on those -- and some printed out with a "concierge" heading on the p
  4. Mucsea and thereuare, I didn't troll on the 100 level enough, and unfortunately nobody recognized me when I was there. I also missed thereuare's PM to me, as I had left for the 5 hr drive earlier in the day, and vowed I would not pack a laptop. I'm sorry we didn't meet, but I bet our paths crossed. However, there were record crowds for these sold-out games, so I am not too surprised. The Mariners crowd was great towards Olerud, and the Seattle Times wrote it up in a positive light in Sunday's paper, I was very pleased to see that. No hard feelings from Mariners fans, as it was (IMHO) Marine
  5. Actually Mucsea, thinking back on Yankee highlights, the upper deck left field might not be such a bad spot for catching homers! (We're in the 300s for Sunday's game, sec 106 row 27 on Friday). I tend to run into people I know (weird but true since we live 300 miles from Seattle) near the "Ichirolls" stand on the 100 level between home and 1st or thereabouts. I will plan to wear my Yankees/Mets shirt on Friday ("This is your brain" - Yankees logo - "This is your brain on drugs: - Mets logo) so if you see a mid 30s female in that shirt, it is probably me. Saturday I'll wear my "Evil Empire"
  6. That seems pretty good to me too. I've paid $75 in the spring, and an Expedia flight/hotel package which averaged to $119/night in the summer. Your bidding history supports that if you overbid, it couldn't have been by more than a couple of bucks. Since you're only a week away, I think you did just fine.
  7. deleted family will be there all 3 games, but unfortunately we have to leave directly after Sunday's game. We have to work Mon-Thurs before going to NY Aug 21-30 for a family wedding and summer vacation. On Saturday's game, we will be sitting in Section 108 row 33 (1st base line outfield, I believe). I'll have a white Yankees cap and some sort of Yankees t-shirt on, and I'll be wearing my Yankees "bling" as my son says, Yankees earrings and watch. (smalldeleted will be the obnoxious kid waving his "Yankees big puffy finger" and yelling "pull up your pants Ichiro" ?!? or "Jeter's got 4 rings
  8. We'll work together on the Park n Ride situation to Safeco, as we will be at Renton Hilton Garden Inn those dates. As to activities in that area, there is the Museum of Flight, Southcenter Mall (there is no mall in our small town), and we will only be staying a few miles away from the airport. I've never found a problem with weekend traffic in and out of downtown proper Except around game time. I think they'll be able to go to whatever kid activities they want with little problems, as they have their own car. Maybe his wife and I will just take turns driving all of us to the games, if we can
  9. I had been trying to help a friend get ready to bid for a stay over the August Seattle-Yankees series, and had encouraged him to reserve a certain hotel as a backup (not the one mentioned below, but a Residence Inn 2 bdrm penthouse at $119, since he has 3 kids), then he went off and bid on his own. He got accepted on his first try. He is, however, thrilled at the price, so I didn't say too much to him other than I'm glad you saved half. I have now mentioned this site to him. Quote from his email to me: "Hey, I was just messing around for hotels tonight and
  10. Courtyard By Marriott Rye Check-In Date: Friday, July 9, 2004 Check-Out Date: Saturday, July 10, 2004 Your Offer Price: $48.00 Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Nights: 1 Subtotal: $48.00 Taxes & Service Fees: $11.58 Total Charges: $59.58 I burned some frequent flyer miles for my husband's birthday, to go watch Yankees in NY. I have them flying into Westchester County airport (HPN) and since they fly in so late (10:30 pm), thought I'd bid hotel vs. crashing at a friend's, at least that first night. My cancellable was Residence Inn in White Plains for $89 pretax, so I s
  11. We stayed on a $75 Priceline bid on May 8 '04, our second stay there, and first Priceline stay. Epicureangirl's review is really quite thorough, and I don't particularly disagree with anything. However, I will give up the "style" for the location any day. As she said Pike Place Market is just a few blocks away, down Pike Street, which also happens to be a pretty flat street (Seattle is actually quite hilly). We walked to the Market for Mother's Day breakfast Sunday morning (as odd as it may sound for breakfast, there is some good asian Hom Bow, or as my east-coast husband calls it, Shu Pow
  12. We had a priceline win of the Coast Bellevue on 5/7/04. Getting to the hotel was interesting due to the construction on I-405 and being directionally challenged, but we made it after going around the block twice. Check in was very easy, I practically had to beg the guy to take my credit card for incidentals, which made me realize partway through that conversation, since there is free parking and I have a cooler full of snacks and food, what incidentals am I handing the card over for? I was cheerfully accomodated with my bed and smoking requests. I was a bit worried once I saw the location o
  13. My mental map was slightly off. THe hotel is a bit north of the freeway from the Sullivan Road exit, as shown on the map here. It certainly isn't inconvenient though. Mapquest to hotel
  14. If my mental map serves correctly, this should be near Spokane Valley Mall on the Sullivan Road exit of I-90. If it is where I think it is, notwithstanding traffic and or freeway construction (which has been happening) I would guess it is 15 minutes, 20 tops, to downtown, but an easy drive. Spokane traffic (not counting construction traffic) is not anywhere near Seattle or other big cities. I've only hit the Valley mall once, but it is huge and has many national chain restaurants and stores. Also, you are now halfway from downtown to visit Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, about 20-25 minutes further e
  15. We enjoyed this hotel in the past. I have seen on some boards complaints that rooms are far away and the hotel is huge. Actually parking a car is pretty convenient to the wings and even you don't have a car and schlep from the lobby (who doesn't have rollerbags these days) it isn't too bad. It was really quiet room considering our room viewed the airport across the street, and we watched jets land. There was a parking charge. That is a pretty good price, too.
