  1. I called Iron Horse first - online I could see a 2 queen room for $165 [weekend promo rate]. On the phone, the guy did not even mention that option and quoted a king alcove room with a pull out bed for $285. Was a little disappointed with this. Decided to take a change with HOTWIRE - used the quickquote link above to book - was fairly certain the Iron Horse was the hotel listed. I don't know which room I have though, should I call and ask ?

  2. Wanted to add to this. I did find free parking ont he street across the hotel. A little shady but it was ok.
  3. Started at $60. Went to $69. Total is 86.97 for the day. Used the PRICELINE link naturally.
  4. Started at $100 using Strip North. Added Strip south at 120, won Vdara at $125. Dreading the visit as the reviews are mixed. Used PRICELINE links from this site to start the bidding process.
  5. Started bidding at 48, had to go up to 60 per night to get this.
  6. First bid $45 - accepted by Sheraton Madison Hotel. Used the PRICELINE link from here. TripAdvisor reviews look bleak - anyone has recent experience here ?
  7. Bid 60, 65,68, 70 - finally accepted at $73 for Sheraton Seattle. saved almost $120 off using so am happy.
  8. bid $40 on a 3.5 star hotel in downtown - wanted to replicate experience of another poster on possibly getting the pfister. got the hilton milwaukee instead. Oh well, that is ok except for the parking fee which is not sitting well with me. Anyone have any luck finding cheaper parking nearby ?
  9. Doing a mileage run on the 5th. Will be driving in to milwaukee on the 4th evening. Just need a place to crash for a few hours. What would betterbidding members recommend ? Cheap and free parking would be ideal as would close proximity to the MKE airport. Thanks!
  10. How was your trip ? Mine went really well and the room I got was really nice. I even reviewed it on tripadvisor.
  11. used PRICELINE link. $60 a night - not a fan of paid parking however :) Have Hyatt Gold Passport - wonder of that helps.
