  1. Based on what's still available today (at $5 less, grr..) I believe the amenities were Free ParkingOutdoor poolCasinoFitness CenterBusiness CenterRestaurantCondoThe condo inclusion is a mistake, but the condo+casino combination in that zone seems to be a marker for Palazzo.
  2. After clicking on the link from BB, stuck with PRICELINE EXPRESS after the recent change that includes Trump with Strip North hotels when naming your own price. Still a decent rate for a holiday weekend, and added a 5% off coupon to ease the pain a bit. :)
  3. Clicked through BetterBidding PRICELINE link, started with 4* Palm Springs at $60, added Palm Desert at $65, and done. That'll work!
  4. Heading out for some golf and caught a nice deal for Red Rock after clicking through to HOTWIRE via BetterBidding. Amenities listed were: Resort Casino Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center High-Speed Internet Access Golf Nearby Tennis Nearby Spa Services Free Parking Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking Thanks!
  5. Got a good rate for a quick overnight stay. (Forgot to post when it was accepted ... oops!)
  6. Stayed here last week and would echo the previous comments. A great value for the Priceline rate of $46. Had a fairly spacious room with a comfortable king bed and small sofabed with table. Bathroom was small and without a fan. A pleasant surprise was the indoor pool and hot tub. The pool is big -- they bill it as Olympic sized, which might be a stretch, but it is larger than most hotel pools -- and it has an 8.5 foot deep end. The hot tub is also pretty large and deep. The kicker is that it is open 24 hours and is accessible via a back stairway so you don't have to traipse through the lobby to get there. Nice! Towel service was poor and it was noticeably cold early in the morning, however. Parking was $12.95. I noticed separate spots for Priority Club members, but didn't ask about it since those benefits are usually not provided to Priceline rates. I didn't use light rail, but it really is close by. About a 1/2 block walk to the pedestrian bridge over International Blvd. that takes you right to the platform. Hotel also has a serviceable restaurant and lounge; had an overpriced buffet breakfast there with good eggs and coffee. Decent place at a good price.
  7. Got a decent price for an overnight near the airport. Only one rebid zone to work with (Kirkland); started at 40 and was rejected, then went to 46 and was accepted.
  8. Nice price for a quick weekend getaway, informed by BetterBidding. Thanks!
  9. Nice price on a holiday weekend. (Yeah, it's Chicago in February, but my old college pal's 40th birthday party is nearby so this fit the bill.) It was listed as expected: 4*, restaurant, fitness center, spa, internet, business center.
  10. Accepted first bid of $50 for 3*. Total $62.56 w/tax. I should have started lower! I was planning a free re-bid adding 2.5* in the same zone, because both 2.5* properties (Hilton Garden and Courtyard) are pretty new. Hotwire had what I think was the same property at $75, so I'm happy. Radisson web site had it at $169 prepaid.
  11. Needed a room for a little getaway while some floors are being refinished at our house. Got a deal for $66/night for 3 nights at Crowne Plaza, Nov. 10-13. Amenities listed were restaurant, fitness center, high-speed internet and business center. With the help of this board, I saved $75 vs. a standard booking elsewhere. Thanks!
