  1. If you see “free breakfast” in the list of amenities, stay away! This property is vastly overrated (by Expedia and its affiliates), no better than a Motel 6 except with musty rooms. Realistically, one star or maximum two. Hotwire no bargain either — final price with fees equal or higher than walk-up rate. No airport shuttle either (property is a few blocks from Jamaica Station). Very disappointed. Other listed amenities: free parking, free internet, bed choice.
  2. Complimentary: Free Internet Amenities: Airport shuttleBusiness centerFitness centerPet friendlyPool(s)Restaurant(s)Smoke-free rooms. $130 all in.
  3. Amenities: Free Internet (in Room) Spa Shuttle Non-Smoking Gym Restaurant Handicap Accessible Business Center $204 all in: a decent deal, but no significant savings. Was hoping for Hilton or Sheraton. Tried bidding up to $145, but kept getting counteroffers of $174.
  4. $149.97 after taxes and junk fees. Bid $99 on PL, got a counter for $127. Went to PLEx w/o rebidding. amenities: Free InternetFree ParkingFree BreakfastAirport Shuttle Business CenterFitness CenterNon Smoking
  5. Free Internet Business Center Fitness Center Non Smoking Restaurant Swimming Pool bid at $49 and $54. After that, used the 5% Priceline Coupon for PRICELINE EXPRESS deals.
  6. Complimentary Free InternetFree parking Amenities Business centerFitness centerPool(s)Restaurant(s)Smoke-free roomsSpa services Excellent property and price for long airport layover. Former Moevenpick, though I read a bit tired. Final price $64.94
  7. Final cost $76. (Hotwire showed what I believe is the same property for $66 base). I've stayed before when it was the Moevenpick. Very convenient to airport for long layover. I read that it could stand renovation, but very satisfaction property and price for my purpose.
  8. Amenities: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry,Internet access Accessibility: Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom
  9. €60 after fees (does not include $8 city tax collected at hotel). Excellent price for a very good property for non-weekend stay. Was not posted as available until almost midnight prior to check-in. Already on hotel list, usual amenities. Giveaway to identity is the "90% recommend" (most 4 star hotels in central Brussels on HW and PL are older properties with spottier results) Amenities Free Internet Pet friendly Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry
  10. final price $67.63, but does not include resort fee disclosed by HOTWIRE of $8.73/pp amenities: Free Internet Pet friendly Smoke-free rooms Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access
  11. Did my research, got expected property. PRICELINE had for $55 so I bid $50 and was accepted.
  12. w/ the fees, final price was w/in $10 of booking directly. However, as a result of prior poor experience w/ Hot.wire I had $50 credit (Hotdollars) to burn. Free Internet Airport shuttle Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Accessibility Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Accessible parking Roll-in shower
  13. Disputed the charge with credit card (Fidelity Amex, administered by Citicard), who would do NOTHING for me, citing that I had checked in rather than walk away. I then filed a complaint w/ BBB of San Francisco. Hotwire immediately offered me a $25 credit for misrating + another $25 credit for condition of property. They also advised that they had re-rated property from 3.5 stars to 2 stars. I accepted the offer.
  14. This property is rated 2 stars by Expe.dia and can be booked directly for $20 cheaper than the Hot.wire rate. It might be 2 stars, were it not in deplorable condition. It has a 2.4 (out of 5) customer rating, and that is as a 2 star. The hotel rates itself as 2 stars. Based on this misclassification, I asked Hotwire for a refund. They refused, claiming that they start with the Expedia rating and adjust based on customer feedback. So much for Hotwire customer service. This is outright fraud. I am now disputing the charge on my credit card.
