  8. Hotel was fantastic. Very satisfied with the stay. They even honored my Marriott Gold status, which is rare with third-party stays.
  9. PRICELINE EXPRESS showed a $94/nt rate for a Frankfurt Airport hotel that I was pretty confident was the Sheraton Airport hotel. Rolled the dice on NYOP: $70 - rejected (added Darmstadt) $75 - rejected (added Frankfurt Messe) $80 - rejected (added Frankfurt West) $85 - rejected (added Frankfurt North) $87 - accepted The Sheraton is attached to the airport, but the Steigenberger is only across the street and has a free shuttle. Was it worth the $21 for the added inconvenience? Probably not, but we'll still get to the airport unnecessarily early that it won't matter.
  10. Saw a 5-star in Checkpoint Charlie which I'm pretty sure was the Hilton Berlin for $154/nt on PRICELINE EXPRESS. Decided to bid to see if I could save a little money. First bid: Checkpoint Charlie - $125 - got a counter for $154/nt Second bid: Added Bradenburg Gate - $130 - accepted at the Berlin Marriott Not the hotel I thought I'd get, but happy none-the-less.
  11. It seems like Priceline Express beats Hotwire on every hotel. PRICELINE EXPRESS has Titanic Gendarmenmarkt Berlin for $139/nt (compared to $153 on HW), Eurostars Berlin for $150/nt (compared to $160 on HW), along with a 5-star in Kurfuerstendamm - Savignyplatz for $112/nt which is either the Swissotel or the Sofitel.

  13. Yes, this is a win in Frankfurt. You said Munich in your response, which tripped me up, but I think it was a mistake on your part.
  14. The 65% recommendation rating spooked me, so I ended up bidding on The Modern Honolulu on PL and got it for $167/nt: Knew this was the only 5-star (really 4.5-star) hotel in the area for PRICELINE, so started bidding at $125. Immediately received a counter offer of $192. Bid ~$10 increments until it was finally accepted at $167/nt. PRICELINE EXPRESS had it for $173/nt, but now it's up to $200/nt. No resort fees, very happy with the deal!
  15. Thank you for the quick reply! The 65% recommendation does concern me, because Hotwire says the Hilton Hawaiian Village is recommended by 86% of guests. But I cannot find another 4-star property in the area and the only others listed on travel sites are the two other Hilton Vacation properties. Maybe the 65% recommendation is representative of more recent reviews (e.g. past 6 months) than the entire history of the hotel? Still checking out other zones, but will update when I decide when/what to book.
