  1. Not sure if I should put this here, but the Pan Pacific is offering rooms with summer dates starting at $189 through some kind of summer promotion. Here's the link if anyone wants to check it out. Pan Pacific
  2. I don't know, you're probably right. I just find it annoying that Hotwire can do it. What's the difference? You can't even get a flight on Priceline out of Canada, even if you're NOT naming your own price.
  3. Sorry if this was posted somewhere before. Does anyone else get annoyed that you can't get flight from Priceline unless they originate in the States? I've always wanted to bid on flights coming out of Canada but they never let you do that. Did they used to? You can get flights on Hotwire, but I would like to try bidding on them to see if they would be cheaper. Are all the Priceline sites like this? Do you have to originate from Europe on the European site? If so, I think that stinks. They're losing out on potential business by limiting that. I wonder if they have a bunch of e-mails complaining about it, if they would start offering it. :)
  4. I'm bumping this after seeing the recent 4* Vancouver wins in and around my dates of travel. If anyone spots anything PLEASE let me know. Right now I have a one bedroom suite booked at the Delta. I had the Westin, but the Delta had a sale for $25 a night less. If you spot anything for 4* that's less than this, PLEASE let me know! THANKS! :)
  5. I'm curious too, because I'm looking for a 4* hotel for June 7-10. I can't believe I missed this! *sigh*
  6. I wish I would have seen this earlier. I need a 4* for Vancouver June 7-10 and I've been bidding up to $150 with no luck. I just tried after reading all these threads about you guys winning the Hyatt and nothing :)
  7. GAH! I wish I would have seen this a couple days ago. I just tried bidding up to $150 for my days of June 7-10 and got nothing! :)
  8. Agreed, I'll be keeping the suite for now unless I see some super bargain
  9. The Pan Pacific looks really nice on the website, but I think it would just be for a regular room. I'm not sure that a $2 difference would be worth giving up a one bedroom suite for, even if it is 5* vs 4*. The thing I worry about it booking that and then having it come down even more. Like I said, it started at $315 and went down to $193 so who knows. I did call and ask about a gov't rate, but that's $210 for a regular room. The amenities listed on Hotwire are: 5-star hotel in Downtown Vancouver West Fitness, Pool, Restaurant, Business Centre, High Speed Internet, and Spa 4 out of 5 rating on trip advisor
  10. HOTWIRE is now listing a 5* hotel that looks to be a match for the Pan Pacific for $193 a night. It was originally $315 when I first started looking. Do you think it would be a good move to take this hotel for $193 instead of the 4* Westin for $195 a night. We do have a suite at the Westin, but I don't know what kind of rooms they have at the Pan Pacific. It seems to get decent ratings. Would you recommend doing this, or waiting still?
  11. Ok I just discovered this feature but I'm noticing that they don't post wins or something. I've checked tons of popular cities you'd think people would be bidding on (NYC, LA, etc) including a number of others and I've not gotten any bid results. I checked last night and all day today and nothing. How often do they post these supposed wins?
  12. I'm not sure if anyone has posted this before, but I thought I would let you know since I just stumbled upon this. Apparently, if you sign up for Priceline Rewards (eg, Pricebreakers) or have made a past flight, hotel or car purchase, you have access to Priceline Rewards. This includes coupons, special deals, and a list of recent winning Name You Own Price bids! You can click on whatever country you want and it will list States, Cities, etc. Then click on those to see if there have been any recent bid wins. It says it will even tell you dates, areas, and star levels, etc. I thought that was pretty cool, another cheat we could use! Again, don't know if everyone already knew this or not, but I found it too cool not to pass on. Sadly, when I looked for my destination there hadn't been any winning bids, but I'll be checking frequently as they're posted daily. :)
  13. Alright, will do. Interestingly, I just went back to HOTWIRE to check and this hotel has dropped to $192 now. Not a significant drop, but interesting since I check earlier and it had dropped before to $196.
  14. Ok Hotwire has a 4* hotel for these dates on for $196. I would like to keep watching this price, but I'm having trouble identifying it. It doesn't seem to match anything on the list. Maybe someone else has a better idea? Here are the details. 4* Downtown Entertainment District $196 for Jun 7-10, Regular retail $240 Fitness, Restaurant and High Speed Internet 6.4 miles from airport Any ideas?
