  2. On HOTWIRE I'm seeing: 3.5* HOTWIRE Madison Square Garden for $172.00 Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Kitchenette ==> This would likely be the Homewood Suites as well. This appears when I search for 2 adults and 1 child, which does not guarantee bed type but should result in bedding for the entire party (2 beds, 1 + rollaway or sofabed.) The SRPING10 coupon does work for 10% off, which brings the per night to $154 and change before taxes/fees. On the checkout page, under star rating and zone, there is an "add your promo code" button. Click that, then enter the promo code and that takes off $51.60. Plus, free breakfast at the Homewood is a nice added value over the HGI Chelsea. HOTWIRE doesn't offer 10% off promo codes very often and given NYC rates, 10% off can definitely lead to some very nice additional savings on top of already discounted rates. While not a guaranteed 2 beds, given that indicating 3 people on HOTWIRE should result in bedding for the whole party make this option of interest?

  4. Welcome to Betterbidding. I'm seeing on PRICELINE EXPRESS: 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing and confirm correct dates of travel on the landing page) for $134 Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet >>>Best guess would be the Dolphin 4* Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing and confirm correct dates of travel on the landing page) for $114 Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Business Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Indoor or Outdoor Pool >>>Best guess would be the Hilton Bonnet Creek 4* Walt Disney World - Disney Springs (<<<---CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing and confirm correct dates of travel on the landing page) for $82 Fitness Center Restaurant No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool >>>Best guess would be the B Resort and Spa Let us know what you decide or if we can be of any further assistance.

  5. Welcome to Betterbidding! Really terrific rate for a newer 4.5* in a great location. Hope you are looking forward to your trip. Additionally, I'm very familiar with Chicago - please let me know if you have any city questions. Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  6. I'll note that Walker Brothers (which is a local institution) in Lincolnshire (https://www.yelp.com/biz/walker-bros-original-pancake-house-lincolnshire-2) is a fairly short drive if you're looking for breakfast nearby. Bonta (https://www.yelp.com/biz/bonta-lincolnshire-4) is also a surprisingly good option tucked away in a strip mall. Very familiar with the area, happy to answer any questions.

  7. I'm seeing on HOTWIRE: 5* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile - Water Tower for $241.00 Free Internet Pet Friendly Indoor Pool Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Childrens Activities ==> This would likely be the Park Hyatt. While a bit more expensive, this is still a good deal for a 5* in Chicago in the Spring. You also can't get a better location right on Michigan Ave, not to mention a gorgeous restaurant in Nomi. 4.5* HOTWIRE River North for $119.00 Free Internet Boutique Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Hi-Speed Internet Spa ==> Godfrey. I enjoyed my stay at this property quite a bit. It's an easy walk to seemingly endless restaurant options in River North (including plenty of family-friendly options like Portillos) and it's not too far from here to Michigan Ave. The only note about this property is that I'd want to try and get a higher floor. There is a bar on the 4th floor with a retractable roof and I wouldn't want to be in a room right next to it. However, based on the experience I had I'd gladly stay here again. I wouldn't go with the Intercontinental, as I think the Godfrey is a better value for $119. The Westin River North is the nicer of the two Westin properties in the city, but doesn't provide a significant difference in location vs the Godfrey, whose $119 rate for the Spring is a very reasonable deal. The Intercontinental does have a pool, but it's not family friendly. So I'd really narrow it down to the Godfrey for the very reasonable (for Spring in Chicago) rate of $119 or the Park Hyatt.

  9. Welcome to Betterbidding. Just to confirm, are you seeing this when searching for more than 2 adults? I'm not seeing it when searching for 2 adults, but when I search for 2 adults/2 children, I'm seeing: 4.5* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile - Water Tower for $157.00 Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Childrens Activities Blind Accessible Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Accessible Roll-in Shower ==> Best guess would be the Westin Please confirm the amount of people in the party (as the search results will differ depending on how many are in the party) and let us know whether the Westin would be of interest. If not, let us know more about what you are looking for - I'm very familiar with Chicago and would be happy to offer hotel recommendations/answer any city questions. Thank you for keeping us updated.

  10. Splitting the stay isn't the most optimal, but I'll throw out another option that actually offers both a cheaper overall cost and a night at a 4*: I'm seeing on PRICELINE EXPRESS: 8/24-26: 2* Downtown - Seattle Center - Space Needle - Lake Union (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $171 >>>Best guess would be the Inn at Queen Anne 8/26-27 4* Downtown - Shopping District - Convention Center - Capitol Hill (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $141 Restaurant >>>Best guess would be the Hotel Theodore So this combo would get the per night average down to $161, plus the last night at a newer 4*.

  11. I'll also note on PRICELINE EXPRESS (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the link below.) 4* Downtown Detroit (<<<----click this link to go directly to the listing) for $125 Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities >>>Best guess would be the Westin (plus, use the promotion in my signature for another 5% off, which brings the per night to about $119 before taxes/fees. With the coupon, the total is about $40 less than HOTWIRE.) If this is the Westin (and that would be my best guess), with a regular rate of nearly $300, this would be a pretty terrific deal. Let us know what you decide or if we can be of any further assistance.

  12. Pan Pacific?

    For 6/16-6/18 on HOTWIRE I'm seeing: 4.5* HOTWIRE Downtown - Coal Harbour, Convention Center, & Stanley Park for $294.00 Resort Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business Laundry Hi-Speed Internet Golf Spa Childrens Activities Deaf Accessible Travel Accessible Room Accessible Bathroom Accessible Handicapped Parking ==> Best guess would be Pan Pacific, which has been reported to the board with this amenity set previously.
