  5. Sorry, I cannot remember the amenities. I will start posting my wins to this forum in a timely manner. We had a very nice stay at the Westin Times Square. On 8/31/17, Hotwire said my claim was approved and it would take one to two billing cycles for the credit to show up on my credit card statement.
  6. 8/12-8/17/2013 4 nights Room $944.00 ($236.00 per night x 4 nights x 1 room) Taxes and fees $277.42 Hotwire total $1221.42 Resort fee $116.00 Trip total 1337.42 This total was more than what I could have bought it for on a transparent booking site ( Hotwire is giving me a real headache about honoring their low price guarantee
  7. As a long time Hotwire user, I got sloppy on a NYC hotel purchase, and wound up with a price higher than I called Hotwire within minutes of my purchase so they could verify my better price and price match. I spent over 45 minutes on the phone with a customer rep, who had to verify by phone that it was the same identical room on the same days. I was told that the rep would submit my valid claim and I would receive a credit within 3 business days. Seven business days and still no credit. I cannot seem to get through to Hotwire, so I contacted my credit card company and they got a little defensive, as if I was trying to cancel a booking. It seems like Hotwire will do anything possible not to honor their low price guarantee. I am amazed that they are higher in price than with zero transparency,
  8. Bid $25 rejected Pricline offered rebid for same zone if I were willing to bid $40 or more, I declined Added Lithonia and bid $29 Bid accepted. Nice property, nice price
  9. I bit the bullet and bought on HOTWIRE without any inkling of what hotel I would get. It turned out to be the La Quinta in Port Charlotte. I don't know how Hotwire got their 3* rating for this hotel, but rated it 2.5*, Expedia 2.5*, Priceline 2*, Trip advisor 2.5* and Orbitz 3*. Hotwire says they take the 3 top travel sites and average the rating, so this would then be a 2.5 star. They also say a 3 star should have room service and on-site dining. This hotel has neither. Would I be sucessful in cancelling this hotel, due to the over rating?

  11. I searched hotwire for a 3.5 star hotel in Melbourne, FL and one came up for $53. I posted on this board for help in determining what hotel it might be. I returned to the hotwire site and the price was up to $57. I booked for $57 and this AM the price is back down to $53 (same area, same star rating, same amenites). I am certain it is the same hotel. Is there any chance of getting a refund on the price difference?
  12. From the time I first posted until the time I booked it the price went up to $57, a $23 increase for the length of my stay. Also, it was not the Hilton, it was Doubletree Suites, which I have stayed at previously and 3.5 star is really a stretch for this hotel in my opinion. Still a much better deal than the $119/ night the travel sites were offering for this property. I used the Better Bidding HOTWIRE link.
  13. Amenities: Beachfront Pool Restaurant HSI $53 per night Travel dates 12/28-1/2 Thanks
