  2. City Area: Quincy Market - Financial District Hotel Quality: 4.5-star Deluxe Le Meridien Boston 250 Franklin Street Boston, MA 02110 (617) 451-1900 Check-in Date : Fri, Apr 19, 2002 Check-out Date : Sun, Apr 21, 2002 Number Of Rooms : 1 Number of Nights : 2 Price per night : $105 Subtotal : $210 Total Taxes and Booking Fees : $31.95 Total : $241.95 Date Purchased : Mar 30, 2002/10:53pm PT Note: We've stayed here many times over the years. Prior to Hotwire, our best rate, booking way ahead, was $155/night in the wintertime. When checking Hotwire for our dates this particular trip, the rates for the only 4-1/2* that came up time after time went down over a month or two from $13x, to $12x, to $115, then $105 (don't remember all the exact numbers). This is a magnificent hotel in every way. Though the location, for Boston, is not the very best (it's in the financial district, "quiet" at night, a longer walk to most places) they have complimentary limo service (often in a stretch) to wherever you want to go on weekends (you're on your own to return). Nothing like arriving at your Sunday brunch destination in a limo!
  3. Location: New York City, NY City Area: Midtown West Hotel Quality: 4-star Upscale Hilton New York 1335 Avenue of the Americas New York City, NY 10019 (212) 586-7000 Check-in Date : Thur, Oct 24, 2002 Check-out Date : Sun, Oct 27, 2002 Number Of Rooms : 1 Number of Nights : 3 Price per night : $146 Subtotal : $438 Total Taxes and Booking Fees : $68.95 Total : $506.95 Date Purchased : Jun 17, 2002/1:15pm PT Note: Despite lots of less than favorable reviews on TOBB and other web forums, we were assigned a terrific room (king as we requested upon check-in) and our stay was just fine in every way. (Curiously, no blow dryers - odd for a 4*.)

  6. Nevermind, I didn't read carefully. Next question, would you like me to post past bookings, though I never noted the specific ammenities? I, personally, don't pay much attention to them. I trust the star ratings (and usually stick to 4 or more stars), more or less, and don't care whether there's a pool, exercise facilities, on-sight restaurant, 24-hour room service, etc.
