  1. Amenities Airport Shuttle Fitness Center Restaurant(s) Business Center Self service laundry Internet access Accessibility Accessible for the blind Accessible for the deaf Accessible path of travel I am slightly annoyed with HOTWIRE because the pre-purchase details said it was 55% of normal rate of $186 and had 4.0/5 on TripAdvisor. But in reality, rooms are running $140 and it has only 3.0/5 on TA.
  2. Yes, I just purchased what appears to be the same hotel, and it was in fact Holiday Inn San Francisco International Airport, 275 S. Airport Blvd.. I am slightly annoyed with Hotwire because the pre-purchase details said it was 55% of normal rate of $186 and had 4.0/5 on TripAdvisor. But in reality, rooms are running $140 and it has only 3.0/5 on TA. Oh well, just need a place to sleep really, so I guess it's fine. Just be aware. I'll post this Hotwire win separately, also.
  3. Started from the BiddingHelper.com box on this site. Decided on a last minute Tahoe trip. I noticed Hyatt was showing on Hotwire for around $184. Looking at last August's winning bids, I started low, at only $115/night. Rebids, adding zones around, none of which have Resorts: $125, $130, $135, $145. I was afraid I'd run out of rebids, though after my first decline they offered me a rebid of $164, so I figured I was getting close. This is a great rate for Tahoe in August and we always enjoy staying here. :)
  4. As a further example, you can see my post to see how I successfully used the re-bid strategy to get a 4* in the SOMA area of San Francisco. That is definitely a reasonable price for this area, from what I've seen. Hope that helps!
  5. I started from the link on this site and began bidding: 4* in SOMA @ $80 Added rebids in $5 increments: $85 Civic Center; $90 Fisherman's Wharf; $95 Japan Center; $100 Marina; $105 Richmond... and jackpot! Room Subtotal: $105.00 Taxes & Fees: $24.31 Total Charged to Card: $129.31 We live close to the bay, so we don't usually spend the night. I'm looking forward to checking out this ideally located hotel and its top-floor lounge.
  6. Well, I made the blunder of forgetting that PL might give me a Resort when I was bidding for a 4*. I was hoping to get a room at the Resort at Squaw Creek since we'll be skiing there. I checked the map in advance to figure out which areas were good for rebids, but with Resort being at the bottom of the list now, I neglected to notice and think about the Hyatt in the Incline Village area. So I started (using the link here)at $150/night, knowing it was a long shot because Squaw is really booked up and rates are around $350/night online. Rebids, adding areas: $155, $160, $165, then $170 with the
  7. Started from the PRICELINE search box on this site. I noticed the Hyatt was available on Hotwire at $130, after seeing it on their site for $330! So I decided to try Priceline starting at $105. Got it on first bid - so maybe could've gotten it for less :/ Anyway, it's a great price for the area and that hotel for a Saturday night in August - so I can't complain! Note that taxes and fees are $23.17 and they charge a resort fee - $25 I believe.
  8. Note that the hotel name in the title and on the list page doesn't match what's in the body and is the actual name of it. (Forest Suites Resort not Forest Lakes Resort). This confused me a bit when I tried to Google Forest Lakes Resort and got no results. Thanks for posting this one - looks promising!

  11. In comparing this same property listing to what came up on package search for the same weekend, Apple Farm Inn was the only match. Seems likely. Won't find out because I don't really want to stay there...
  12. Another unconfirmed, but looks likely based on availability and options via the packages listing: San Luis Obispo 3.5 stars Boutique, Airport Shuttle, Swimming pool, Restaurant, Internet, Golf nearby, Spa Apple Farm Inn
  13. Used PRICELINE link here and submitted $45 on first bid. Was happy it was accepted AND I got the hotel I was hoping for :) It's great to get 2 rooms for less than the cost of one at most places this holiday week. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $45.00 Subtotal: $90.00 Taxes & Service Fees: $18.90 Total Charges*: $108.90 Thanks for all the posts of recent wins, which led me try for a little lower bid than I would've guessed.
