  1. I've been bidding for this property for a while for the last weeks and was never able to get it as cheap as last year (179 i think), but it was most definitely because I went in May, where rates drop significantly. I started bidding from 180, in increments of 5 dollars, using up all 3 re-bidding zones, and then waiting 24 hours to re-bid. When I hit 215, i started bidding in $1 increments, because I knew the Priceline Express Deal was $227 a night. At the end i ended up with a 220, so i didn't really save a lot compared to the express deal, but i have been in this hotel last year and I love

  3. OK, so i wasn't super excited with the hotels that I would potentially get from the hotwire options, so I decided to take a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal with the coupon that 604girly provided (Thanks a bunch, you save me 90 bucks!) for the 4* hotel in Makena. Based on the results from the forum it was pretty clear it was going to be Makena Beach & Golf Resort, so i decided to go for it. $174 USD -10% with the coupon + fees = 928 UDS, meaning around 185 per day after taxes and fees. I used the PRICELINE link from the forum for my booking Thanks everyone for your help! Fabian
  4. Thank you 604girly for your comprehensivos response! I will definitely give it a try topriceline express, I used to have a coupon but it expired so this really comes handy, thanks a ton! I haven't even decided which area is better which makes it harder to narrow my choices, will come back once I get a hotel :-) Cheers!

  6. Thank you thereuare These are the hotwire hotels I'm interested and would like to identify them. I had a hardtime looking at the easy view of hotwire to obtain the amenities, because the prices are all different (I ensured I was in USD), and even when trying to book from there I always got an error message. Will appreciate any insights! Always using the HOTWIRE link from the forum for my searches and bookings Cheers!

  7. I'm going to try to identify some hotels from Hotwire instead before I make my decision, should I start a new thread in the hotwire forum or just ask about those options here? Thanks Fabian
  8. Thanks! I'll keep you updated what do I end up doing for this portion of my trip

  10. Amenities: Free Breakfast Free Internet Near Beach Business Center Internet access Golf Nearby I used the Hotwire link from the forum as always
  11. I already knew that I wasn't able to get anything reasonable in NYC or Jersey City under 100, so my third option was Brooklyn downtown...my bids were 1st bid: Brooklyn, 2 stars, 75. failed 2nd bid: Added a zone somewhere in Manhattan. 2 stars, 77. failed 3rd bid. Added another zone somewhere in Manhattan, 2 stars, 79 won
  12. 1st bid: 85 3 stars . Failed 2nd bid: 75 2.5 stars. Won I only wanted hotels in the airport area, so the only way to rebid was downgrading the level.
  13. So after reading and checking around here for a while, i decided to go ahead an start bidding (using the PRICELINE link from this forum) Since a lot of people go the $90 dollar rate around my week, i didnt think i was going to get anything around that rate, and indeed, i failed most of my attempts. I ended up splitting my bid in 2 day portions..and no luck either..so it looks the whole week from Sat 15 to 22 there is nothing available for under 150. Since i kept changing the dates, i was able to bid multiple times... Eventually, the 152 was accepted for the days of Sep 19 to Sep 23 (i decided
  14. So, I'm hoping I can find something in New York City from Sep 15 - 22 (7 nights). I'm aware that this is the highest season and prices are through the roof...most people come here in order to get a cheaper 4 star hotel, in my case, i'm fine with a lower start rating as long as its affordable and "clean" with no amenities. The 4 star hotels are above 250 and i can't definitely afford that. Based in your experience, is it even worth to bother bidding in 2 or 3 star hotels in New York to get a cheaper price? Should I stick to 3 stars only to make sure i don't end up in a complete dump? I'm open
