  1. Booking this as a gift for a friend who doesn't get a lot of luxurious trips, so I felt like it was worth the splurge even though there were some much cheaper decent options. And although it's not cheap, it's an enormous saving over rack price. (And I did get the 7% off coupon!) The Reveal Hotels tool is so incredible, by the way.

  2. Free internet, Pet friendly, Indoor pool(s), Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Spa services I knew there were only two River North 5* hotels, but one of them is the Trump and I really wanted to avoid it -- and they often show exactly the same amenities. Fortunately the BiddingHelper.com predicted the Langham, and then showed me an 'actual photo', so I was totally confident. (That would have been an extremely expensive mistake!) This is an absolutely amazing deal. I stayed one time at the Langham, and I think it i

  4. Hi guys, My son has an interview the morning of July 20th, and it's at 190 South Lasalle. I asked, and he says he'd like to stay near there rather than somewhere more fun for nightlife. So I need a suggestion for the night of the 19th. He's not very fussy, but I'd like to find him the best option -- I'd be willing to pay more to get a significantly better hotel, that is to say. I guess a major point is that he would not be hanging out in the room a lot -- just sleeping there, getting up early, checking out. Do you guys have any suggestions? Aaron? I see a few in th
  5. Followed your advice and simply tried again later (using Bidding Helper)... Success! This search repaid a little extra time for me. I think the Omni Riverfront is significantly better than the similarly-priced alternatives, and quite a bit cheaper than anything as good I could have bought. For the final record, the amenities shown on my purchase: Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Internet access Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessi
  6. Hm, I tried to book this one (that looks like the Omni Riverfront), but when I hit "Confirm Payment" I get "We couldn't process your request". Does that mean HOTWIRE ran out of inventory? I see a FQ/Mississippi 4* for $143 too. The amenities are: Pet friendly, Casino, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower So the Casino means it pretty much has to be Harrahs. It costs more but I think I might pay it if I really can't get the $116 likely-O
  7. Hi, I'll be in New Orleans May 13-16. I'd take any of these areas: French Q/Miss., French Q/Bourb., Warehouse, Superdome. Searching for a 4*, two people, there's a large bunch of possibilities and I don't know what to choose. I guess I'd like to grab one of the ones that's around $100. Does anyone spot any particularly good value there? FQ/Bourbon $99 Free Internet, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-ro
  8. The Priceline Express deal that Thereuare linked to was indeed the Blackstone Renaissance. (So I guess this thread should be moved to the Priceline side.) Booked it through that link, of course. PRICELINE EXPRESS named the zone "Loop-Grant Park" (not "-Millennium Park"). The listed amenities were: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Handicap Accessible Thanks for the advice!
  9. Great. Yeah, the Blackstone seems like the best deal. No reason to go elsewhere to save four dollars. I'll check with my son, then I'll book something and close the thread.
  10. Both of those suggestions (the likely Blackstone and the Hilton booked transparent) sound like good options to me. I hadn't tried the MAPS and HOTELS.com tool before, either, so that's useful. Thanks! I'll wait to see what Aaron thinks and then book something in the next 24 hours.
  11. My 21-year old son is going to a concert at the Adler on the evening of Feb. 11th and I'd like to book him a room for that night. First question: is the Loop the right area to look in? I figure there should be better deals there than in the livelier sections and he won't care much about other nightlife since the concert will go late. (On the other hand he wouldn't mind walking a little to Millennium Park, etc.) Second: do you see any particularly good deals? I was thinking 4*, but there's a 4.5* for $93 listed for that night in the Loop. I don't see any 4.5* hotels in t
  12. Yep, the $100 HOTWIRE was indeed the Sofitel. Even though you weren't sure, it seemed smart to pick that one, since it was cheaper and you thought it was more likely to be the one I preferred. Thanks! I think I got a great deal. Booked through your site's HOTWIRE link, of course.
  13. Hi Guys, Looking at a couple of 4.5* hotels in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, for the nights of Feb 19 and 20. For $100, Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Children's activities, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower. For $110, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impa
  14. For some reason the price dropped to $145 when I clicked 'buy'; it was listed at $146 before I clicked. FULL AMENITIES: Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Spa services, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower This was the hotel I wanted, so even though you guys only had a guess, since it matched my guess I decided to go for it. Pretty nice price for a 5*, and it's very well reviewed and is in a great ne
