  1. Hey all I was looking for a room for February 28-March 3, 2016 in Las Vegas. I began my search using the Hotwire and Priceline links on this site and this what I found. Hotwire - Downtown Fremont Street 3 1/2* @ $36.00 per night with the following amenities free internet, free parking, casino, pools, resort, and restaurant. Priceline Express Deal - Downtown Fremont Street 3 1/2* @ $34.00 per night with the following amenities free internet, pools, restaurant, and casino. Both appeared to be the Downtown Grand, but of course you never know until you have finished the booking process. I then checked a few other sites including Expedia and Orbitz using the links on this site. In addition I also checked Lasvegas.com, as they have a best price guarantee that I have taken advantage of in the past. In any event I found the Downtown Grand for $46.66 per night at Lasvegas.com and $37.46 per night at Orbitz with promo code listed right on their home page. After this I decided to book the room at the higher price on Lasvegas.com and then turn in a claim for their price guarantee. I had almost forgotten about the claim until I received an email from them that stated that they would honor the better rate through Orbitz and double the difference, as a refund. So in the end I got a room for $28.99 per night after figuring in my $67.66 refund from Lasvegas.com.
  2. Hey all I decided today to start looking again at hotels in Denver for an upcoming trip next month and of course began my search using the HOT.WIRE and PRICELINE links on this site. When doing this I came across a 3* hotel in the Cherry Creek zone on hotwire for $87, so did a quick search on Priceline and did not find anything that good in price. Also I checked this site and found that this hotel might the Holiday Inn (although listed here and at Hotwire as Holiday Inn Select, but the Select brand has been discontinued by Intercontinental Hotel Group) on south Colorado Blvd and indeed it was. When booking this hotel the price went up by $1 per night although it is still a good deal. Below is the price breakdown for this hotel. Rate per night $88.00 x nights Subtotal $176.00 Tax recovery charges + fees $39.38 Hotwire total $215.38 The best rate through the Holiday Inn website is $195 + taxes and fess, so I got this room for 2 night for around the price, as hotel is charging for 1 and possibly less if you figure in taxes. Hotel Amenities are, as follows. Free parking - Free Internet - Indoor pool(s) - Smoke-free rooms - Fitness center - Pool(s) - Restaurant(s) - Business center - Self-service laundry - Internet access - Accessible for visually impaired - Accessible for hearing impaired - Accessible path of travel - In-room accessibility - Accessible bathroom - Accessible parking - Roll-in shower
  3. Hi all I started my search using both the HOT.WIRE and PRICELINE links on this site and now need some help. Just looking for help in IDing a 3* Hotel in Greater Downtown Denver for July 09, 2015 to July 11, 2015 at $142 per night. AMENITIES: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Suite, Fitness center, Pool(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower I was thinking something like maybe the Residence Inn Downtown Denver, but I never have seen a Marriott property on Hotwire. Have won in the past with Priceline. The free parking is what makes me think it the Residence Inn, rather than a hotel right in downtown area, as most charge for this.
  4. Hey Just booked the Hotel 140 using the HOTWIRE link at this site and got the great deal listed below. Rate per night $188.00 x 3 nightsSubtotal $564.00Tax recovery charges + fees $114.93Hotwire total $678.93This hotel feature the following amenities: Free Internet - Smoke-free rooms - Fitness center - Business center - Self-service laundry - Internet access - In-room accessibility - Accessible bathroom The total listed above is at least $250 off the best rate I was finding at sites like Hotels..com and Expe.dia. Does not look like it is the fanciest hotel, but does rate 4* out 5* at Tripadvisor and the location looks good, plus it has free internet (like to use to plan my day on public transit).
  5. Hey all I just booked a hotel for my pre-cruise stay (posted on this site). Now I am looking at a hotel for the 3 nights after my cruise. For these nights I am looking for something in back bay area (I think?), but am open to anything that might be close to some sightseeing opportunities (I am traveling with my retired parents that don't get around to well, so less walking is better). Please clue me into why I might want to look at hotels in the Back Bay area or some other zone through Hotwire. I thought the person paying for the trip would complain when i told him the previously booked hotel would cost him over $340, but he did not. I any event I won't say that price is not an option, but I don't think we need the most expensive place in Boston.
  6. Hi all I finally decided to book the hotel for the night before our cruise out of Boston in October using the HOTWIRE link on this great site. I an event, as I thought I might I ended up with the Seaport Boston Hotel for the rate listed below. Rate per night $275.00 NightsTax recovery charges + fees $67.88Hotwire total $342.88 This rate is good, as the lowest rate at the hotel's website is $249 not including taxes or fees. Also I had some credit with PayPal from selling some unwanted items on eBay, so I used this to pay for part of this hotel stay. AMENITIES: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Indoor pool(s), Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Spa services, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower I am happy with hotel, as it the top rated hotel on Tripadvisor and also if I am correct I can use public transportation to get to this hotel for little or nothing. Now I am off to look at hotels for the 3 nights after our cruise. I think I am going to look in the Back Area
  7. Hey all I started my search for a hotel in Denver for a few weeks out using the HOTWIRE link and PRICELINE link on this great site. I looked at rooms in the downtown, Cherry Creek, and Denver Tech Center - Greenwood Village area. In any event I settled on a 3.5* hotel listed on Hotwire in the latter of 3 zones for $57 a night, as I was almost sure it was the Double Tree (stayed there before and knew it was near a light rail station) and a friend gave me a coupon code to save $25. I might have gotten that hotel had I not accidentally closed out the window. After retrying my search I did not see this hotel listed, so accepted a another 3.5 hotel (sorry I can not select 3.5* from the drop down menu, so my post may say 5* instead), as it had a good rating and ended up with the Hyatt House Denver Tech Center. I was able to get this hotel for $65 a night plus taxes and fees. Below is the breakdown for this, as well as the amenities. 2 nights Hotwire Hot Rate Room@ $65.00/night: $130.00Tax recovery charges & fees:$25.15Subtotal: $155.15Discount: -$25.00Hotwire Total: $130.15 Amenities are as follows: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower. While not the Double Tree that I had stayed at before and really liked I am still happy, as the Hyatt website has this hotel priced at $187.43 for the 2 nights.
  8. Thanks I was kind of thinking that, but was not sure. Looks like a good hotel that is really the case.

  11. Hey all I am looking to book at room in Boston for Saturday October 3 - Sunday October 4 and then Sunday October 11 - Wednesday October 14. Just wondering when is a good time to buy on Hotwire. For the first night I am looking for a room in "Waterfront Area - Convention Center area," I want something close to Black Falcon Cruise Port (leaving on a cruise that Sunday). I am finding a hotel that I believe is the Seaport Hotel for $275 for 3 people with the following amenities free internet, pet friendly, indoor pool, smoke free rooms, fitness center, pools, restaurants, and business center. If I were to get the Seaport I would be very happy with price, but wondering how early I should book this hotel. Also wondering about using Priceline, but of course I know that they only guarantee a room for 2 people, although I have gotten lucky enough to get room with 2 beds in the past. For the last 3 nights I am open to other areas of Boston to stay in and have yet to start looking at prices. Thanks in advance for your replies

  14. I started my search using the PRICELINE link on this site. My budget was only $75 (+taxes/fees) per night and I was hoping for a room in downtown Denver, but would settle for a hotel in Cherry Creek. I started my bidding for a 3* in the downtown Denver zone at $50. I then added $5 and another free rebid zone (Castle Rock, Evergreen, and Northeast Denver) until I got up $75. At that point I started looking at their Express deals and found a 2.5* in Cherry Creek for just $68 and I good idea that it might be the Fairfield Inn or Hampton Inn, so I took it. In any event I got the following hotel. 3* Fairfield Inn And Suites Denver Cherry Creek for 09/19/2014-09/21/2014 per night rate: $68 + taxes & fees: $28.84 Total: $164.84 Free parking Free internet Free breakfast Pool Fitness Center The Marriott website shows rates of either $119.95 or $129.95 depending on if you book a room with 1 or 2 beds. Overall I am happy with this offer, as I checked Tripadvisor and it gets okay reviews.
