Newbie (1/14)

  1. The Arlo SoHo sounds great! I tend to stick to the well known franchises, but this different place and the reviews are great. I will be ready to bid later today, hope the rates are still low. Of course I will bid through these links! 😄 I don't see any Hotwire promo codes posted, although the rates are besting PL by quite a bit. I did see that notice from Allianz Global about cancellations, and it seems that if you buy insurance, you may be eligible for a refund, on a case by case basis. Do you usually recommend buying the travel insurance?
  2. Thanks for your detailed reply! My travel dates are 3/26-3/3029, a 4 night stay. I am definitely looking for a budget trip, but nothing under 3.5*, no more than $150/ nt (under $650 total if possible) and since I have tickets to the Daily Show, so I am looking to stay in the Midtown West or Central Park South area, although NY is pretty easy to navigate if I were to stay closer to Wall STreet, where the rates have been very low. But I just heard that NY declared a state of emergency, and in 2 1/2 weeks I don't know if the show will allow a live audience due to the outbreak. I have other plans though, so still plan to go unless the situation gets dire. I'm hoping to avoid a hotel with resort fees! Is there a way to filter them out before we get to the checkout screen? I hate selecting a hotel for a good price and then find out there's a $40/nt resort fee. Thanks for all your help! 😄
  3. I'm wondering if either PL or Hotwire are offering refunds or honoring cancellations in the wake of the corona virus? Several major events are being cancelled nationwide and I'm sure the hotels are facing major last minute cancellations. I am planning a trip to NYC and was going to use PL or Hotwire to book, but Gov. Cuomo just declared a state emergency for NY, so I'm wondering if I should either wait to book, or book now when prices are low and see if PL or Hotwire will let me either cancel or rebook? I have some time (3/26), so it's not rush, but wonder if anyone had experienced an event being cancelled and the hotel refunded your room? Thanks, travellers!
  4. Thanks for your reply! My apologies, I should add here that my purchase was via PRICELINE EXPRESS and NOT HOTWIRE! I had tried to purchase a similar deal on Hotwire but the website was having problems, so I booked via Priceline Express. Can you please move to the appropriate forum? Thank you! I will retry the Is THis a Good Deal" tool. When I've used it before I get the error message "Can't find data, try again later".
  5. Been looking to get a one night in Milwaukee during Summerfest, a Saturday night, the hardest to get! Checked for a few days (when only one $400 a night hotel was showing) and finally got the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee on Hotwire with these amenities: Free Internet, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower Quick question: What does the "Is this a good price" tool do? It never lists any suggested hotels when I click it. This site has been SO helpful for so many trips over the years!! :D
  6. Hey! Need help identifying a 3.5* Miami Beach area PRICELINE EXPRESS with he amenities listed below, for one night, 2/28. Original PRICELINE EXPRESS price is $124, but when I clicked to purchase, it comes up as $118. Thanks for your help! Guaranteed Amenities: Business Center Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center
  7. Hey! Just want to close out this thread. I tried the rebid strategy for a 2.5* hotel in downtown NOLA up to $149 on Sunday but was not successful. I decided to use my Starwood points and booked Le MEridien for my dates. I was hoping to save those points for a cruise I'm taking in February, will need a room for one night, prob in FL, but I will review this page and figure out an awesome bid strategy or hotel from PRICELINE EXPRESS / Hot.wire when the time comes. Thanks for everything and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! :D
  8. I would like to stay within a few miles of the Superdome, so Downtown/Superdome and Warehouse District would be the best options. My maximum for 2.5* would be $162 However, I note that there are no free rebid zones for 2.5* in New Orleans, so worried about how often I'll need to wait to rebid. Thanx! :D
  9. Hey! It's official, booked the flights for my NYE trip to Sugar Bowl! Just did the search again on Bidding.Helper (12/31-1/03) and now the 2.5* hotel is listed at $200. Same two amenities listed: Business Center, Fitness Center I would also like to bid on 2.5* hotels on PL, but not sure which properties would come up. Right now on PL the only qualifying hotel is the Holiday Inn Express, currently at $319/nt, but who knows if this is the PRICELINE EXPRESS hotel. Please advise. thanx!
  10. *S&(@! What an idiot! Can't believe I didn't post dates. I was looking at 12/31-1/03/15. The official games won't be set until after a Saturday playoff game. If I purchase a PL express and buy trip insurance, can I cancel if his team goes to the Citrus Bowl instead? -TravelGirl22 :D
  11. Looking to go to Sugar Bowl (where my cousin MAY be playing his last season)! Just did Bidding.Helper search and found this hotel (copied from page): Downtown New Orleans Rated 7.0 out of 10 (or higher) Business Center Fitness Center Save 32% or more* $ 162 per night Choose Only 2 amenities listed. Can't find a PRICELINE EXPRESS hotel for 2.5* downtown on your list. Any ideas?? Thanx for your help!
  12. Hey! Thanks for your help identifying these hotels. I was looking to get the Four Point Sheraton Memphis East, as it is right across from where my cousins will be staying (Homewood Suites in Memphis East), but since neither of the Hot.wire hotels looked to be this one, and Price.line has too many 3* in the area to be certain, I booked the Four Points using my Starwood points. Recently booked 5* Palazzo Resorts from Hotwire for a November trip, will post those details today as well. Thanks again! -Travelgirl22 ^_^
  13. Hey! Have to say again how helpful this board has been to my travel plans! :D Can you please help me identify these two hotels for travel this weekend? 10/9-10/11 3.5* East Memphis $66/nt Free Internet Free parking Restaurant(s) Business center Indoor pool(s) Golf nearby Airport shuttle Fitness Center 3* East Memphis $56/nt Free Internet Free parking Free breakfast Pet friendly Self Service laundry Fitness center Also, could the EAst Memphis All Suites hotel be the Homewood Suites? I have yet to see that appear here and it's not listed in the Hotwire hotels. Thanx for your help!
  14. Got this hotel just now for a Saturday night stay during very busy Irish Fest this weekend. This seems a bit far to be listed in the downtown range (I've been to the festival several times) but for one (late!) night and an early morning departure it should be fine. Here are the amenities that were listed before I purchased: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Airport shuttle, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby Thanks to this board for all your help!
  15. Went with PRICELINE EXPRESS, snagged Le Westin Montreal for $130/nt with these amenities: Indoor or Outdoor Pool Pets Allowed Restaurant Fitness Center Free Internet Business Center I know the area pretty well and this isn't far from the Jazz Fest. So many events revolve around the Hyatt so it is easier to just go up to my room after their done, but I look forward to trying out this hotel. Thanx much for all your help!
