  1. Last minute bid @ 10 pm on 6/21 - looking for Costa Mesa Costa Mesa 4* $169 failed 2nd bid - added Newport Beach $200 failed 3rd bid - added Santa Ana 3.5 star $185 won $156.75 is the hotel charge, but the Newport Beach charges a $25 resort fee so the winning bid was $185
  2. Tried to add on an extra night to the Omni Parker House, got the Hyatt Regency instead. Used the Priceline link. Not a big deal, the hotels are 3 blocks apart and this one is actually closer to my office. First try on NYOP
  3. The Omni is fine - not quite as close to my new corporate office as the Westin, but still perfectly serviceable. Ratings on it are really good too. I do confirm that the Omni Parker House is Boston Common - Theater District, not Copley. I got it because I had to add a 2nd zone for rebid and figured that one would be the most expensive... Amenities: I don't recall seeing this as I was NYOP. There is free internet, free parking, and a swimming pool though. Will note that the Omni Parker House does NOT participate in the "add a night" option to NYOP - see my next priceline win Total for the
  4. Was shooting for the Westin Copley - 1st bid, Copley zone @$90 rejected. 2nd bid, added Boston Common/Theater District - got the Omni Parker. Not complaining - this is a great location.
  5. Wound up going with the PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal: $152 bumped up to $160 for 2 bed, -5% for SUMMER14 promo to go back to original price. $368 total for 2 nights at the Boston Hotel Buckminster
  6. Hi, I don't care which of the 6 zones I'm in. My primary criteria is: Free internet. 3* or higher (have had bad experiences with lesser). Not ridiculously far away. The Comfort Inn, Logan airport, for example, is really, really far away - like 6 miles from Beacon Hill and 44 minutes by metro. I'd rather have the Comfort Inn in South Boston - it is also 44 minutes away from Beacon Hill, but I'm going past all the area I have to work on so is actually a benefit. Budget is how low I can get while meeting the core requirements. At this point we're looking at $150/day or so. The event in Bo
  7. Hi, I'm doing work mapping the whole city of Boston, but prefer something more central to start with. Zones being looked at: Beacon Hill Boston Common Cambridge East Copley Square Downtown Boston - Harbor Revere-Logan airport The 2 properties above are Cambridge East and Copley Square.
  8. Thanks for the tip. I was shooting for the 3* Marriott Tudor Wharf - which had some wins in the $70-$90 range. I do see the 4* Loews for $149 as a PL express deal - minus 5% Price.line code, it is $141-ish so I think your suggestion of $125-$135 is eminently achievable.
  9. Have failed from $75 to $95 thus far - for zones 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, and 13. Started with 3* Will try again tomorrow starting at 4* Ideally want Marriott Tudor Wharf or Loews Back Bay Used Priceline link (unsuccessfully)
  10. Express deal. Exactly as hotel list indicated. Supposed to have free internet, parking, and breakfast. Used the Betterbidding Priceline link.
  11. This hotel was great! I should have posted this earlier, but I had nothing but good things to say about this establishment. Service was excellent, room was fine albeit a bit worn. Despite my having a room on the first level (around the enclosed pool) and a wedding reception in the clubhouse, noise was barely perceptible after closing the bedroom door. Yes, because the room I was in was a junior suite. The only negative - and this is a minor one - this hotel can be VERY hard to find. Map it carefully before looking for it.
  12. Got 2nd room at same price, but had to add Millenium to initial $53 bid on O'Hare South. Used PRICELINE link
  13. First bid: O'Hare North $50 failed Added O'Hare South $50 failed Added Millenium $53 succeeded Used the PRICELINE link. I thought I'd get the Hyatt Regency, but not this time...
  14. Used the PRICELINE link. Definitely some bad reviews of this hotel, but the more recent ones seem to be ok. We'll see. Hard to beat $40/night (first bid win)
