  1. The Westin-Paris 4* Paris (Louvre - Marais) Amenities: Fitness, Restaurant, Business, Laundry, Internet The amenities shown are the same ones listed in BetterBidding's Hotwire Hotel List so I'm just confirming. The rate for one night was $224 plus about 8.5% Hotwire fees. I'm happy with the hotel/location, but I'm wondering if I can expect to be given the worst room available and how small/unrenovated it will be.
  2. It was the HOTWIRE link you provided that didn't work for me yesterday. I mislabelled it "Savings Barn" in my post because that's what you've provided to me previously (for Priceline bids).
  3. I had been waiting for the "Customer Favorite!" tag to appear for the dates I wanted. Finally it did, and I rolled the dice. Got the Hyatt, as I was hoping. The details: Hyatt Regency Montreal (12/28-01/01) [Customer Favorite!] Fitness, Pool, Restaurant, Business, Internet 4 x $84/night + $59 taxes/fees = $395 Btw... The Savings Barn link wasn't connecting for me today, possibly because I'm at the office.
  4. Ah, ok...now I see what you're asking for. Current numbers are below. The rate for my preferred dates -- the 28th-1st -- has changed. It is now $99 (prev $86) and a Customer Favorite. In-Out Cost Amenities Remarks 27-30 $85 FPRBI Customer Favorite!; Best Value 27-01 $84 FPRBI Customer Favorite!; Best Value 28-01 $99 FPRBI Customer Favorite!; Best Value (previously $86 and not a Customer Favorite) In-Out Cost Amenities Remarks 28-29 $89 FPRBI Best Value 29-01 $85 FPRBI Best Value In-Out Cost Amenities Remarks 28-31 $85 FPRBI Best Value 31-01 $115 FPRBIS Best Value
  5. Searches for individual nights and "Customer Favorite!" designations are both contained in my initial post.
  6. The Hyatt is my first choice. The Omni and Hilton are fine -- I've stayed in both before -- but their locations aren't ideal for me, especially not the Hilton's. I might be willing to "invest" the $85+ for 12/28 to find out if the Hyatt comes up. Purchased separately, would it be fair to assume that the 12/28 hotel would be the same as the 12/29 - 01/01 hotel? Another consideration... I've been thinking of going with Priceline (Hyatt is 3*), but then I'm concerned with "winning" the Delta.
  7. I've checked the list. I agree with you that the "Customer Favorite!" is likely the Hyatt, but that one shows up for the 27th-1st. The dates I *need* are the 28th-1st, the search for which returns a 4* hotel w/ same amenities but no "Customer Favorite!" Thus, my uncertainty...
  8. I tried to be thorough with this so you could make your best guess. I'm shooting for the Hyatt Regency Montreal. Only one 4* hotel was returned for each of the searches below. All results were earmarked "Best Value." My hunch is that the "Customer Favorite!" is likely the Hyatt. My concern is that the non-Cust Fav might be the Omni? Thanks for the help! Desired Dates: Dec 28 - Jan 01 (4 nights) In-Out Cost Amenities Remarks 27-30 $85 FPRBI Customer Favorite!; Best Value 27-01 $84 FPRBI Customer Favorite!; Best Value 28-01 $86 FPRBI Best Value In-Out Cost Amenities Remarks 27-28 $85 FPRBI Best Value 28-29 $85 FPRBI Best Value 29-30 $89 FPRBI Best Value 30-31 $109 FPRBI Best Value 31-01 $115 FPRBIS Best Value Amenities F = Fitness P = Pool R = Restaurant B = Business I = Internet S = Spa

  11. The Westin Harbour Castle 4* Toronto (Downtown) Fitness | Restaurant | Internet $82.00 Room + $16.64 Taxes/Fees This is not my favorite hotel in Toronto, but I'm not unhappy with it. The rooms are nice, but the location's not so great in winter.
  12. London's so difficult with no free rebid zones for 4*... Started by testing the waters to see what counteroffers I'd receive (none, as it turned out) and to see if I could get the Thistle Marble Arch for $65/night. No such luck, so I waited 72 hours, then tried again with more realistic numbers. The Thistle Charing Cross is a very nice hotel, so I'm quite pleased with the outcome. I bid through SavingsBarn.com to support the site.
