  1. Won this on PRICELINE for the first bid of $75 when the going rate on website was somewhere close to $179. Stayed there for 5 nights and had a good time. Got lucky with weather during my stay. Central location on the beach. Used the PRICELINE link from this website.
  2. Won this back in Jan on PRICELINE using the links from this great site. Started somewhere around $85 and won for $101. Beware there are 2 types of hotel rooms. Front desk will always assign you the lanai rooms similar to motel around the tower based on your priceline booking. But don't settle for it and you can do better by negotiating right on the spot for $15-20 more to get into the tower. Thats what we did when they tried to put us in the lanai room, paid our way to get into the tower room with cruise port , Marina and sunset view. Didn't want to start our FL trip on a sour note. Beach is 10-15 minute walk but they do provide shuttle to the beach. There is a nice pool area and well maintained grounds. Cheers...
  3. Won this back in Nov on priceline and had a good time. Used PRICELINE link from this great site. Started with $55 got counter for $71 (declined counter), $58 and won for $60. Cheers.
  4. Booked on Hotwire for stay near the airport. $45 Best Western Palm Beach Lakes 1800 Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard, West Palm Beach, FL, 33401 Amenities Airport Shuttle,Complimentary Breakfast,Pool(s),Laundry Facilities
  5. Got Reach resort for 199/night. Be aware of $20 Resort fee (Even though Hotwire alterted me to be ready to pay $30) and $15 parking. I tried bidding RESORTS on Priceline with 2 different accounts but always got the $25 increase couner offer on both 185 bid and 198 bid in the span of 15 mintues because i was hoping for Directly hyatt or Casa marina Resort. Also failed to secure 4* at a 15-20% discount to the posted Hotwire rate for my dates. But finally with no luck on priceline ended up buying it on Hotwire. Used the links from this great site during purchase. As my booking was on the last minute i expected to pay high but could not find any recent wins for this resort on hotwire listed on this site for comps( May be i have not looked deeper in the past history) I was concerned with some bad reviews on tripadvisor about this property but overall I liked my stay for quite 2 days on this resort. Great location (Almost southermost resort on keywest), Private beach and great sunset views when coupled with Casa Marina resort as this is a sister property and you can use amenities on both by staying at either resort. hope this info will help my fellow travelers for their upcoming trips to key west.

  6. Wanted to share the following Win. Failed bid $65 yesterday and won on $80+taxes today on my last hope for a hotel close to Dover Downs. I had a standard AAA rate reservation for $116 as a backup in the same hotel and glad to get the same place through PRICELINE.

  8. Hi All, Need help to identify the following property for 2 rooms, 4 adults for 03/21 to 03/27 $47/per room/per night 4* SeaWorld - I-drive South Area (trip advisor 3.5* with 160+ and latest review in feb) This hotel features the following amenities: Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Laundry Facilities High-speed Internet Access Golf Nearby I am expecting Rosen Shingle Creek (trip advisor 3.5* 160+) as per BB hotwire hotel list, but can it be Rosen Plaza (trip advisor 3.5* 173+ ) or Rosen Centre(trip advisor 3.5*, 190+) because of Laundry Icon? This one does not seem like Monumental based on amenties list and also the other two Rosen properties are listed as 3.5* in BB hotwire hotel list. Just trying to make sure that this one is indeed close match for Rosen Shingle creek and not the other 2 rosen properties. Admin any thoughts please?
  9. Thank a lot for your replies. Exactly, This one offers free breakfast which brings it more closer to Hawthrone Suites. Also previous Blue tree resort win confirms that it displays with "Resort" icon but this 3* condo does not show "Resort" icon. Any other thoughts? I would really like to hit Hawthrone suites on this price :)
  10. Need to identify the following Condo 3-star condo in Lake Buena Vista - Downtown Disney $57 Amenties shown: 1BR Fully-equipped Kitchen Smoke Free Rooms Complimentary Breakfast Free Parking Daily Housekeeping Air Conditioning Children's Activity Program Fitness Center Pool(s) Business Center 24-hour Front Desk Laundry Facilities High-speed Internet Access Golf Nearby Condo for 03/21/09 to 03/26/09 for 2 Adults/2 children Based on my research it looks like close match for Hawthrone suites, But i would like to take another opinion on this one. Only suspicion i have is trip advisor 80+ reviews listed on hotwire as compared to actual 130+ trip advisor reviews for Hawthrone suites (usally they are very close not a 50+ reviews diff) and a smoke free Icon. Any help is appreciated?
  11. Successfully won 3.5* Marriot in Downtown Calgary for $53/night. Used the PRICELINE links from betterbidding to book. Thanks Admin for running this great site.
  12. just for the update to fellow travelers there is public parking right next door to the hotel at the corner of Mason and North Point for 24 hr rate of $25 compared to the valet parking charge of this hotel goes for 38+tax. If you don't have to drive out of san fran i would not bother to take the car. Hotels location is great and fishermans wharf, pier 39, bay cruises, lombard street and coit tower are all in walking distance.
  13. And forgot to mention that i have used the PRICELINE link from this great site.
  14. Thanks guys for all your help. Just want to share my bidding experience for 5* hotels on the strip with all my fellow travelers that prices does go down as you approach your stay dates. Based on the busy convention schedule on my stay dates i was unable to get 5* south even for 195 and never got any counter offer. As for 5* north goes (most probably trumph) proposed offers kept going down from 214, 188, 166 and i would have most probaly got it around 150. As i did the bidding till last minute (25 sep) my priority changed and went for 4* south. Even though i kept an eye on 4* zone as well as i was looking for 5* hotels. 4* north kept proposing the 5* trumph price. but 4* south kept coming down from $140, 125, 112 and finally i got the 4* Las Vegas (Strip South) Westin Casuarina for $100. ( I was totally aware of getting westin but i hoped for Monte carlo) (26th to 28th) now 2 words about westin, its location is right in the middle of strip but other than that its just a hotel to stay for night and it is not up to the 4* standards. Good luck fellows with your bidding.
  15. Got the 4* Harrahs at South Lake Tahoe for $79 amenities shown: Resort, Casino, fitness, pool,Restaurant,Business Center,High-speed Internet Access,Golf Nearby,Spa Services Used the HOTWIRE link from this site.
