  1. Hi .. Bid $38 for a 3* in Toronto Airport area. Rejected but given free re-bid if I increased my bid by $11. Ignored this, rebid with Toronto Airport and Toronto East area for $42 accepted! Marriott Toronto Airport Offer Price: $42.00 US Taxes / Fees: $11.00 US Total Charges: $53.00 US Flipphone ON, Canada :)
  2. Hi all, It may already have been noted, but has Priceline changed its zones for Toronto Canada? Seems to me the Don Valley zone is much different and the Vaughan - North York zone now takes in the top of what used to be the Don Valley zone. If you want a hotel in the north east of Toronto you are sort of stuck because you might end up getting something that is over by the 400 instead of something closer to the 404. Frustrating! :)

  6. Bid at $40 for a 3* - rejected Re-bid at $42 for a 2.5* - accepted with an 'upgrade' to a 3* Radisson Hotel Kitchener *** Check-In Date: Thu, Nov 11, 2004 Check-Out Date: Sat, Nov 13, 2004 Your Offer Price: $42.00 (US dollars) Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Nights: 2 Subtotal: $84.00 (US dollars) Taxes & Service Fees: $13.20 (US dollars) Total Charges: $97.20 (US dollars) Flipphone, Ontario Canada
  7. Thereuare, Starwood.com is showing a rate of $119 CDN for a CAA/AAA rate and $87 CDN for a Government rate ... taxes added to both rates at, I think, 12%. I make my Priceline bid at ~63.65 all in. So I figure I am almost $40 ahead of the best rate available from the hotel / chain. Flipphone ON, Canada
  8. Just goes to show .... Bid for one night at 2.5* level at 38$ and was rejected. One option was to add another zone (Cambridge, Halton Hills, Hamilton) ... Cambridge would have been OK but I can't believe they think that Halton Hills or Hamilton is 'close' to Kitchener. Anyway, I decided to check :) the 2* category and tried at $39. The result: Congratulations, you got your price of $39 for a hotel room, and we've upgraded your hotel quality level to a 2

    2* Toronto (Airport YYZ) Quality Hotel

    ohbahsan, Do you mind telling us which Quality Hotel you got (i.e. the specific address)? I only ask because I think there ar a couple of Quality Hotels around the airport. I think you are right about that with the CDN $ gaining ground finding cheap hotels in Toronto is much more difficult ... especially downtown. Since I actually pay in CDN $ it isn't much of a problem but for US travellers I think they will begin to see a big difference. Of course it works the other way for us folks from the North when travelling south! Thanks Flipphone ON, Canada

  14. Randi66, Well I am here now ... reasonable room with two doubles, coffee, all the expected mod cons. Plus free high speed - which I guess is just about to be expected these days. I am not sure what hotel comes up for downtown but I would think the Hilton is a good guess. Flipphone ON, Canada
  15. Lancer, Not sure if you have stayed at this hotel before. I have a number of time and it is a nice hotel, good 'suite' type rooms, a nice resturant, pool, etc. It isn't exactly close to anything (i.e. walking to anywhere isn't really an option) but it is an easy drive to shopping (look for the mall on your right as you drive up the 406). There is a 'shortcut' to the falls from that hotel ... take Hwy 58 and then get on to Thorold Stone Road ... stay on it, going around the curve where it turns into Stanley Ave, then turn left onto Bridge Street ... go to the end of the road and you will be on River Road. A right turn takes you up to the falls. Not sure if you needed that info but thought I would add it JIC. Flipphone ON, Canada
