  1. FYI, On priceline NYOP, the same downtown Toronto southwest zone (#5), your date range plus a day, a $115/night bid failed...but I think $116 may have been accepted. Also on NYOP, it says its a at least a "7.0+" rating but gives the Fairmont a 8.5 rating while the Sheraton has a 7.6 rating so just know that's a possibility. If I move forward with booking I will share my results in my own thread.
  2. Unfortunately it jumped up to $104/night so a grand total so $321 but mystery solved...At there bottom it shows "View published rate hotels in the same area as the Hot Rate® Hotel you've searched." which shows the SLS with 3.0 out of 5.0...I'm not planing to book at $104, if it goes down again and I book it I'll report back.
  3. Wynn appears to be on HOTWIRE right now for $84/night for your dates; same amenities listed HERE
  4. Used your HOTWIRE link and biddinghelper for amenities: Free parking, Free Internet, Boutique hotel, Casino, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Spa services Says last booked was the SLS...80% recommended but what's throwing me off is hotwire says this offering has a tripadvisor rating is 3.0 out of 5.0 with 1001-1500 reviews...But you go to the SLS on tripadvisor and it states the SLS is 3.5 out 5.0 with 3228 reviews...The SLS opened in August 2014 or over 3 years ago, so an annual average of 1000 tripadvisor reviews to get to 3228 reviews, so could hotwire's data be over a year outdated? I've found it be 100% accurate in the past... $75.00 per night x 2 nights x 1 room $150.00 Tax recovery charges + fees $34.92 Promo Code Hotwire total due today (USD) $184.92 Resort fee due at hotel $64.00 Trip total (USD)$248.92
  5. Used bidding helper for the amenities which were the same as regular hotwire: FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Fitness center, Self-service laundry, Internet access then booked using the HOTWIRE link on here I'll share that I looked at PRICELINE EXPRESS and they had a cheaper 5* their zone which was slightly different but had resort fees and included an airport shuttle (Banke currently doesn't charge nor does it have a airport shuttle); just an FYI for those searching the zone I'll also share there was a bed choice, in many other Paris zones in that price range that had bed choices you only had a "double bed" option while this zone/hotel had both the option of a "double bed" and a "queen bed" so that helped my decision with hotel selection because if it truly is a double bed (standard double length is 74") I'm too tall to sleep in it comfortably If booking directly at the hotels website, even with a 10% off early bird discount at today's exchange rate was $477 USD $312.00 ($156.00 per night x 2 nights x 1 room) Coupon applied$10.00 (was not a "hotrate" which could have given me $30 off) Taxes & fees$64.55 Trip total (USD)$366.55 Trip total per night (USD)$183.28
  6. Used you're PRICELINE link and did PRICELINE EXPRESS for my original $187 4* and got the outrigger reef! Thanks for your help!
  7. Ok, thank you, I thought you might like to keep HW/PL separated but I'll do this in the future!
  8. Used your PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links, also posted a PLE thread but am wanting Hotwire to see the options...Using your biddinghelper site (which gives different pricing than your link for some reason?) to get the full amenities: There are three 4*s in the Waikiki Beach zone: $186/$191: New to hotwire...FULL AMENITIES: Near beach, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower...No mention of resort fee...85% & 4.0/5.0 2001+ Hyatt/Moana? $182/$181: FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Beachfront hotel, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Spa services, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible bathroom...$60/resort fees ($30/day) 85% & 4.5/5.0 2001+ Sheraton/Outrigger? $165/$160: Boutique Hotel...FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Boutique hotel, Near beach, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower...No mention of resort fee, bed choice...75% & 4.0/5.0 1001-1500+ Waikiki Parc?
  9. That's the one, thanks! I'm going there those dates (have a cruise which departs on 8/27) just mulling over my options...Will follow up once I figure it out
  10. Used your PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links... Greatly appreciated if you could help when you get a chance...For PLE the heart and most of the marina are one zone, for hotwire it's broken into two zones...Only one 4* offering on hotwire which is oceanfront and "near beach" but not beach front. Overall I'm happy with different hotels but did want beach front. For PLE, Currently showing $187/night...Amenities: Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking 8 out of 10 guest score I'm thinking Hilton Village or the Outrigger
  11. Used your PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links, started at hotwire and saw an Union Square East 4* for $114/night so I figured I'd bid on priceline up to $113/night. Bid in one dollar increments and won at $111/night. Total with all fees and taxes $401.43, lowest price I could book directly was $612.03
  12. going to skip this vacation unless both airfare & hotel rates go way down, if that happens I'll update
  13. Trying to avoid the Trump and I do know if it shows a casino its the only absolute way and no matter what I'm told, there no way to guarantee I want get a certain hotel...I'm just trying to see if there are any other triggers...Dates are 7/29-7/31. I used your BiddingHelper.com on a Hotwire 5* north property to determine a $135/night offering is indeed the trump which is the cheapest offering...Next strip north 5* offers are $189/night...Alternatively I do see there is a PRICELINE EXPRESS option for $168 which seems to be a Palazzo or Venetian On PRICELINE NYOP, the amenities are I/O Pool, restaurant, fitness, business center and 8 out of 10...Is there any history of a priceline wins with these amenities/rating?
