  3. Icons: pool, fitness center, free parking, free internet, free breakfast. Guest Rating: 8+ Total: $58.72 after taxes & fees A nice, very clean hotel with a convenient location to I-29, shopping and restaurants. Highly recommended, especially at this room rate. I likely could have bid on this hotel and saved a couple of dollars but I booked this the night before check-in, so PRICELINE EXPRESS was an easier option.
  4. Amenities: Airport Shuttle, Smoke Free, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Spa Services, Accessible path of travel Ratings: 4.5 on Trip Advisor, 100% Hotwire recommended
  5. I've since learned that there is a beer festival (2nd largest in Germany) and agriculture festival being held in Stuttgart during my dates. So I gave up on the Priceline/Hotwire route and was able to reserve the highly recommended City Hotel for $145/night. I didn't think I would be successful with bidding on a hotel because most were sold out. Thanks for your help.
  6. I'm almost positive I entered the correct dates. Now I have changed my plans slightly and need September 28 & 29th only. Using Maps & Hotels, the two 5* hotels are listed as $253, 237 and 215. I haven't used this tool before so I'm not sure how it is supposed to guide my bidding. The Altoff website is showing rates of $186 for the 28th and $236 USD for the 29th. Suggestions please.
  7. When I posted on Aug. 20th, the 5* Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin was listed at $245 & $267. Today only Hotels..com shows this 5* hotel but the price is now $487. I think I'm going to have a problem finding a decent hotel in this city within my budget.
  8. Maximum budget is $175/night before taxes & fees, which will likely add another $50. I realize this might be a challenge. Thanks!
  9. I need a room for 2 adults, September 27-30 in the Central area of Stuttgart. I used the Maps.Hotels tool and the 5* Steigenberger on Priceline is $245 and on Hotels..com $267. Priceline "Name your own price" indicates that a 5* is the "best deal". Any advice on a bidding strategy?
  10. When I looked closer at the listing I noticed that in the section titled "Where you'll stay", it indicated that the hotel was 14.5 miles to LHR. This surprised me because I didn't think the zone extended that far. Since I have an early morning flight I decided not to take a chance on this Hotwire deal. I booked the Sofitel through a last minute website and paid $50 more but it included breakfast. I was still able to save $100 compared to the Sofitel website rates. Thank you for your help. Always appreciated!
  11. Those were the amenities listed when I clicked on the green "full amenities". If I hit the red "continue" to purchase button, I get a message..."We couldn't process your request". I've never been able to book through the Easy View link and always have to go back to the BB main page. The search now says that there is "1 left". Thanks for your help.
  12. Looking for 2 rooms, September 19, 2014 for 1 night, 2 adults in 1 room and 1 adult in 2nd room. Bidding Helper amenities for this hotel are: free internet, airport shuttle, smoke free, fitness center, restaurant, business center, internet access, spa services Rate quoted: $124 (on the HW website it indicates this is regularly $212) I am hoping for the Sofitel but the laundry amenity is missing. Would you be confident that this is the Sofitel?
  13. Thanks Yellowdog. In my experience, "the last person got...." resulted in me getting the same hotel as the previous customer but I guess there is no guarantee that would happen. For this stay I decided to reserve a nice 2 bedroom apartment in a great location. There are 3 adults going on this trip now so it was a cheaper option than getting 2 hotel rooms.
  14. Dates: Sept. 5 & 6, 2014 for 2 adults Rate: $122 (regularly $274), 50% off, 1 room left Amenities: free internet, indoor pool, smoke free, fitness center, pool, restaurant, business center, accessible for blind, in room accessibility, accessible bathroom, handicapped parking When I continued on to the next screen, there was a message that the last person got the Apex International. These amenities do seem to fit. What do you think? I've been using your site for all my searches. Thanks!
  15. I started at $70 - rejected. Added Deltona and increased bid to $75 - rejected. Added Deland and increased bid to $80 - accepted. I could have booked this same hotel as a pl Express Deal with 5% coupon for $85, so I only saved $5 by bidding. Rack rate is $129. It's Spring Break so prices in Florida are very high. I'm happy with this deal. Used betterbidding PRICELINE links. Thank you!
