  1. went and did a search through the BB HOTWIRE link for 8/17-8/19. Looking for a 3* preferably in downtown Fresno. Ordinarily I wouldn't mind driving a few miles and going to a cheaper area, but Fresno is always over 100 degrees in the summer and since this isn't Las Vegas I'd rather not be outside much at all. It is currently listed at $62, $103 at other sites. I've pretty much eliminated it down to two hotels, the Holiday Inn or the Radisson (formerly Four Points). I want it to be the Radisson since that's where the event is located. I'm afraid though that it is the Holiday Inn. Please help. Amenities: Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) High-Speed Internet Access Accessible for the deaf Free Parking Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking
  2. not me but someone else in my entourage. She did the BNA zone and the 5 free rebids back on 3/5, from $45 up to $55 and hit the Radisson at $55. I think she said the total for the 3 days was around $200. Pricing on other sites (Radisson, Expedia) is $89 a night before taxes, so a decent deal.
  3. IMO not much of a deal. Priceline (and probably other places) has the room for the same night for $66 after taxes (outright, not by bidding), plus it has Club Hotel as a 2.5 star, not a 3.
  4. turns out another person in the group that I am going with did choose that same 3 star place for 5/13-5/14, and it turned out to be the Club Hotel Nashville Inn and Suites. Interesting, I thought that was a 2.5 star places. $63 after taxes and fees.
  5. question: how accurate is the description of "smoke free rooms"? If it is really accurate as opposed to say guarantee a room that is "non-smoking", then using the Hotwire filter criteria, I come up with 2 hotels in the Nashville Airport area that are 3 star, has an airport shuttle, a business center and a complimentary breakfast, and that is Hyatt Place and Residence Inn. Does this sound about right? I think I'll probably pull the trigger sometime today if it is accurate - I would be satisfied with either.
  6. done...also, site says 1.6 miles from the airport, which to me means either the Holiday Inn or Doubletree Suites?
  7. Hi Aaron - for the hotel in question, the date is for one night, checking in 5/13. Price per night is $48, list is originally $101 Now there is also the 3.5 star one that has a HOTWIRE price of $60 (list price of $117). I assume that one is the Preston? Which I'm not too hot about, been there once a long time ago when it was the Radisson. Though if I could get it on PRICELINE for $45 I might do it.
  8. need help identifying this hotel.

  10. my experience is that you don't get many good deals with Priceline for Las Vegas. It used to be that you could get the non-weekend $99 a night deals on Priceline for Venetian, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. You're better off with using non-Priceline bookings. Even my last winning, at Luxor for $70 a night, that was only $10 off of the website rate.
  11. got lucky and got a room in the West Tower instead of one of the dingier Pyramid rooms. Big difference in the room size and newness of the rooms. Very confusing to navigate Luxor, took us a while to figure out where to catch the elevators. Nice place, once we figured out the lay of the land. Internet service was $13 for a 24 hour period. Self parking was a long walk and it was like a million degrees last week, so after the initial time we went exclusively to valet parking.
  12. some comments on this place - I'm guessing this place used to be an apartment complex, with a lake on the property. Has a motel feel to it, not too impressive. Pretty convenient to Legoland and to Wild Animal Park. Lots of restaurants not too far away. Nothing too impressive about the property itself, except that the room was pretty large and they were nice enough to throw in a small fridge at no extra cost. Internet service cost $10, which got waived because the water was shut off for 2 hours at around midnight and I complained.
  13. just wanted to add some comments about the stay, since there doesn't seem to be a review of this place. Newer hotel, only 6 years old, yet signs of wear and tear are evident. Negatives: Rooms are smaller than average, the air conditioner sounded like a helicopter, and it costed me 3 dollars to use a computer to print out a boarding pass. The first room that I stayed in, the carpeting was still wet and one of the lamps was not working, so when the maintenance guy came in and tried to take off the lightbulb, the light bulb shattered all over the floor. Needless to say we got another room. Also, costs $3 to board the bus to go to Disneyland. Front desk would not keep my laptop for safekeeping. Positives: parking was free, internet service was free, got a room with a Disneyland view. For $50 or so a night, I guess it was ok.
  14. Las Vegas Strip Vicinity South 3900 Las Vegas Boulevard South Las Vegas, Nevada 89119 702-262-4000 total for 2 nights, with fees and the like, was $162.87 started first bid for *4 South Strip at $65, added free rebid at $70 and got this place. Not really that good a deal, since the website was pricing this at $80 and Bally's was going for $74 on Orbitz.
