  1. Hotwire was offering what looks to be a pretty good deal for this 4* hotel in the French Quarter. I was not having much luck with these dates via Priceline, so this will have to do. Good location .. happy about that. I did use the HOTWIRE link from this site to book my rooms.

  2. My friends gave me the go ahead to book the Hotwire deal 4* deal at $118 per night. I wound up getting the Sheraton Hotel at 500 Canal St. That should be a very nice location for us. I will post in the Hotwire section as well. I did use the HOTWIRE link on this site to book my rooms.
  3. Well, I went ahead and tried to do some bidding for 4* rooms .. started at 60, then 75 then 85, then 95, then 105. All of them were rejected, and no offers were made to add X amount of dollars to bid. I think I will just wait it out a few more weeks before trying again.
  4. Thanks for the info, guys. I will keep my eye on things over the next couple of weeks and then get something ordered. I did end up getting a really affordable price on plane tickets, so I can now afford to pay a few bucks more for rooms if it comes down to it.
  5. I also had a question about rates for the the dates 4/20 - 4/23. This is the week prior to Jazz Fest I believe .. not sure why the rates seem elevated. I haven't formally bid yet on Priceline, but noticed that the best deal on Hotwire was for a 4* in French Quarter/Canal St. area for $118 per night. On Priceline it is listing the median retail price between $199-$259 for a 3-4 star hotel. Do you anticipate there will be better deals if I wait it out a while, or should I consider jumping on that $118 price at Hotwire? I see a lot of messages on here about people getting rooms in the $60-$70 range via Priceline, and was hoping I might be able to get similar pricing for my dates. Thanks !

  8. I was really pleased to find this deal on Hotwire, as I was having no luck at all getting a good rate for these dates on Priceline. I did use the Better Bidding site as my launch point for my Hotwire search. Thanks for all the wonderful tips, tricks, and hints that you provide !
  9. I just snagged a room for 5/2/12 (Wednesday night)at $48. I could have got it a few dollars cheaper, but after my initial bid of $40 Priceline offered me a free rebid at $48. There are three of us splitting the bill so I figure I'd just take it for $48. That's cheap enough for me. Thanks again to Better Bidding in helping me to get good rates !!
  10. I just stayed there last week ... there is a self park garage directly across the street. It's $23 for 24 hours. We were able to get in and out of there with no trouble. I'm not a big fan of this hotel, but its well worth the price you got it for. It just doesn't seem up to level of other four star hotels that I have stayed at in Chicago. The rooms are very small (pretty typical for Chicago actually), but the location is really good. I think you'll be relatively happy with your win
  11. I just won this hotel for Friday night (2 Rooms). This hotel seems to be the scourge of the 4* NMA hotels, but hey .. price was fairly cheap on late notice and the location is really good. I think we can handle it for one night ;) Thanks to Better Bidding for all the tips ... I used the tips I've found here to get a couple extra bids by adding areas that don't have 4* hotels .. always works like a jewel. I started at 55 .. turned down, but got the offer to add $19 to win the room. We all know that when you get that message you can snag it in between somewhere. Went back and countered with $60 .. turned down. Went up to $65 .. won the rooms. Thanks again, Family Ghost PS I used the PRICELINE link from the Better Bidding site
  12. I did start my search from a PRICELINE link here at better bidding, but I may have lost it after I logged into my account at priceline. Sorry about that .. I intended to use the link as usual. Thanks for the Brat Stop tip .. heard about that joint before, but haven't visited yet. Safe House looks interesting .. going to check that out.
  13. I just scored a one nighter at the Milwaukee Hilton City Center in the downtown area ... $45 via priceline. It was my first bid, so I probably could have got it a bit cheaper. Still .. that's a cheap deal for a 3.5 star. Thanks for all the great tips .. Better Bidding. As always the site is much appreciated ! Hey fellas .. any must visit pubs or restaurants in that area? We're coming in for the Anthrax/Testament/Death Angel show that evening, but will have a few hours to kill in the afternoon, and perhaps after the show.
  14. I just received the Hotel Sax after a successful winning bid of $90. I started my bidding at $70, and went up $5 increments until I finally had some success. Thanks for all the great Priceline tips .. wonderful site !
  15. This was for (2) rooms on 3/26/11 - 3/28/11. I started my bidding at $60 .. then went with $70 ... then $75 .... success at $80 ! I've stayed here before ... nice older hotel that is pretty close to the action. Thanks for the help once again, betterbidding.com !!
