  1. My wife actually just booked this, but I wanted to report it to the forum. In Sacramento you get about 9 shots at a 4* in the downtown area. She went $1 at a time and ended up with the exact hotel she wanted for $98 - The Sheraton Grand. I believe rooms are about $179 at the moment, so $98 ($120.68 with tax and fees) is a nice price. She is happy. Thanks BB.
  2. Only Heathrow available hotel showing up on Hotwire. Have booked both Sheraton's and the Novotel in the past via Hotwire at LHR, and this will be my first with the Heathrow Holiday Inn. Total cost was $77.62 after taxes/fees...about 50% off listed price on website. Used the HOTWIRE link via BB. Thanks! Amenities: Airport Shuttle - Fitness Center Restaurant(s) Business Center - High-Speed Internet Access - Accessible for the deaf Accessible path of travel - In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking Roll-in shower
  3. HOTWIRE had one 4* room for $42 for the one night I needed. There was also a 3* listed for $52. Anyway, amenities included a pool which made it very likely it was the Novotel. After linking to HOTWIRE via BB, I went ahead and made the purchase and the Novotel was the winner. Total of $57.44. The only complaint I can find is that they charge for internet...I am okay with that considering the price. Lots of listed Amenities: Indoor pool(s) Airport Shuttle Smoke Free Rooms Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Laundry Facilities (self-service) High-Speed Internet Access Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking
  4. Amenities: Restaurant, Fitness, Hi-Speed Internet Showed that 100% of customers recommended the hotel....also a 4.5* TripAdvisor rating. I figured it was the Sofitel and was pleased. Used the HOTWIRE link. Thanks! Rate per night: $99.00 Nights: 2 Rooms: 1 Tax recovery charges & fees: $39.14 Subtotal: $237.14
  5. I've stayed at the Millennium Hilton a few times and that is very close to your hotel....it's generally a safe/clean area and you can get everywhere you need to either via subway or taxi. You are also close to Brooklyn, so maybe spend a day there as well.....thanks for providing all of the details on your purchase. It was interesting to follow. Your hotel looks very nice as well. Enjoy your trip.
  6. Just needed to find a spot near the airport for six hours or so...reviews around JFK are pretty bad, and made me think about booking some place that I could trust on my own....almost went with the Marriott before taking one last peek at betterbidding....glad I did. Found the lowest price accepted for the Hilton Garden Inn JFK and hoped for the best....accepted at $84 on my first try...maybe it can go lower? In any event, glad I got the Hilton Garden Inn and thanks to betterbidding and those that post. Of course I used the PRICELINE link. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $84.00 Subtotal: $84.00 Taxes & Fees: $24.71 Total Charges*: $108.71
  7. Only staying for one night - hoping for Le Meridian, but Westin is a nice place as well. I guess they added the "smoke free" to their list of amenities. Of course I used the HOTWIRE link. Thanks! 4* Westin Amenities: Smoke Free, Restaurant, Fitness, Hi-Speed Interent, Business Hotel Hotel rate per night - Hotwire hot Rate: $116.00 Nights:1 Rooms:1 Subtotal:$116.00 Tax recovery charges and fees:$25.49 Total price:$141.49 Total charges to your credit card $141.49
  8. Started at $85 and was offered the room for $142: "Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: US$142.00 Subtotal: US$710.00 Taxes and Services Fees: US$141.05 Total Charges: US$851.05" I chipped away and on my last try, $129 was accepted. Your Offer Price: US$129.00 Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Nights: 5 Subtotal: US$645.00 Taxes and Fees: US$128.75 Total Charges: US$773.75 I am very pleased and would have literally gone to Hotwire next and purchased a 4* if this was rejected, so at least the Grosvenor House made me happy and themselves some money at the same time. :) Of course, used the PRICELINE link. Thanks!
  9. I was hoping it'd be the Hilton, but I don't mind the Sheraton. Used the HOTWIRE link. Thanks! 3.5* Sheraton Madison Amenities: Restaurant, Pool, Fitness, Hi-Speed Internet, Business Hotel Hotel rate per night - Hotwire hot Rate: $57.00 Nights:4 Rooms:1 Subtotal:$228.00 Tax recovery charges and fees:$35.73 Total price:$263.73 Total charges to your credit card $263.73

  11. no surprise here - Holiday Inn Regents Park Business center High-speed internet Restaurant Exactly what I wanted as I needed to book two rooms for this trip - can't beat the price and there are decent reviews for this property. Of course, I linked to HOTWIRE from the bb site. Thanks again! Hotel rate per night - Hotwire hot Rate: $79.00 Nights:2 Rooms:2 Subtotal:$316.00 Tax recovery charges and fees:$56.59 Total price:$372.59
  12. I actually prefer to stay there when I spend a quick night in the city...the location is solid....close to music venues, across the street from Tommy's (easy place for a quick bite and a pitcher of beer) ....one tip: get an inside room...even if it costs an extra $20 a night to upgrade (they charge more for inside rooms), it will change your entire trip....the noise from the streets of Geary and Van Ness go on the entire night....non-stop....there are stop lights surrounding the hotel, so if you have an outside room, it will be almost impossible to sleep....at least that was my experience. Enjoy!
  13. I probably booked this too early, but I needed to spend $500 on a new Amex card for a 50,000 mile bonus and figured now was as good a time as any. I had been keeping an eye on Hotwire for a while and was looking at Marble Arch or Mayfair....I was almost going to be content with the 3.5* Holiday Inn under the Marble Arch/Bloomsbury area for $79.....anyway, today I noticed the 5* Mayfair/Soho....in my bit of research, I didn't even think about the Park Lane Hotel as a possibility.....keep in mind, this is not the Intercontinental Park Lane...this is the Sheraton......if I could go back in time, I would probably undo the purchase after reading all of the reviews....some of the worst reviews I've seen for a five star.....but, all agree the area is good, and I will just look forward to that. Expedia price is at $227 a night, so I feel fine with the $149. I will write a review when I get back in September. This is a 5* with only "Restaurant" listed as the amenity. Of course, I did use the HOTWIRE link from BB. Cheers! Hotwire hot Rate: $149.00 Nights: 3 Rooms: 1 Subtotal:$447.00 Tax recovery charges and fees:$74.54 Total price:$521.54
  14. that's what I was hoping to hear!....reviews seem good and my friend promises it'll work out....with the SUMMERFAM discount it ended up around $200 a night after taxes, so I guess I am starting to be okay with the whole idea...thanks!
  15. Okay, just booked the Brooklyn Bridge Comfort Inn with the Orbitz link and used the SUMMERFAM coupon. Thank you! Everything looks good....I am still able to cancel for a $25 fee, so I just wanted to get this in the bag and now I can still attempt to check HOTWIRE and PRICELINE over the next week. I am still amazed at what the rates are for New York...must be due to the low dollar and people coming in from Europe.....anyway, I will update if anything changes. Thanks again!
