  1. Complimentary internet, Business center, Fitness center, Near beach, Oceanfront hotel, Pool(s), ResortRestaurant(s), Smoke-free rooms Happy with this hotel and its price. This is for two nights following a cruise. I was thinking we would end up with something more budgety, but this will suit us nicely for a couple of days. This hotel does have a $35/ night resort fee, but we'll have beach chairs, nibbles and welcome drinks.
  2. Thank you - that is really helpful insight regarding resort fees. I'll keep that in mind going forward. Love your short cut. This is a 1-night pre-cruise hotel. We land at 10 p.m. and I am truly looking for just a simple, clean place in the vicinity of airport/cruise terminal. While I would prefer 3 or 3.5 *, 2.5 is fine. I KNOW the pickings at this price point are slim, but I'm trying hard to save here and stay under $150. :) Areas, FLL North, FLL South and Downtown/ Cruise port. Thanks again.
  3. Hi there, I'm usually such a good sleuth - stumped! Anyone know of a Ft. Lauderdale hotel in FLL, FLL south, cruise port or Ft. Laurderale Beach, 3* or up, with a $15 resort fee? (I'm searching for April 12-13) This option appeared in mock Name Your Price booking when I both upped my price and added Ft. Lauderdale Beach - namely because I thought it was safe to assume I couldn't find a 3* in the beach zone for my price. Prior to this I was only looking in FLL, FLL South and Cruise Port. The total price is fine, $129, but it kills me I can't figure out the hotel before I do it!
  4. Wasn't expecting to get a yes on my first attempt (tells me I could have gone lower!) but I'm pleased. This is the hotel we always try to stay at when in town. Lowest 3.5 for area on HOTWIRE was $119.
  5. I've been watching for a week or two - needed a simple hotel for an overnight on road trip. Earlier this week, I tried $50 and $52 for both 3.5 and 3 stars with no luck. Express for a 3* was $58, so I knew I was close. Today, PRICELINE EXPRESS for 3* dropped to $53, so I tried 3.5* at $53, no luck. Added 3* and dropped price to $51.
  6. This was the expected hotel. We were booking for location only - had to be one of the three walking distance hotels at Schiphol. Curiously, Priceline doesn't have the same geographic zones for Schiphol, so we had to do Hotwire. Anyway, pleased!
  7. Our preferred hotel-didn't seem like it would be available as it's a football weekend- but won on PRICELINE again!
  8. Hi guys, i see a 3.5 star for Miami Beach -Collins Road (the zone we need.) I don't see any 3.5 stars listed. Help. biz center restaurant pool Free internet fitness center no skoking no ratings posted for property? April 14-15, $161. thanks for any insight!
  9. Free Internet Airport shuttle Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Spa services I thought it was Sofitel, hoped it was Sofitel, and it WAS Sofitel. Makes up for my Hotwire pooper earlier in this trip. We'll head back to the USA in style!
  10. Did one search that included south Scottsdale (my preferred location) for $51, added Tempe North and $52 in second bid. I was pretty sure this would be the hotel and I was right. We have a rental car; price trumps most other factors!
  11. Sure, Free Parking Internet Access Fitness Center Business Center Airport Shuttle Restaurant
  12. Mother in law wanted this hotel specifically. I realized I could nearly guarantee this because of Better Bidding and HOTWIRE's noting of amenities.
  13. before you take that Hotwire deal, I would at least try $106 on Priceline. You might be able to get a 4* for that price. (I LOVE beating Hotwire!) Good luck!
