  1. Aloha, For my Hotwire searches, specifically on the "hide the hotel name searches", when I select "4 adults" am I guaranteed to get a room with 2 beds? Same with "2 adults/2 kids"? Conversely I expect that if I select "1 adult" or "2 adults" the room will likely have only 1 bed, correct? Thanks, Joe
  2. I've become more of a fan of HOTWIRE over the last year or so vs. PRICELINE. Hotwire hot Deal give you the price up front and they give you the Hotwire "thumb" review for the hotel. I seemingly can trust a hotel with a 90-95% positive "thumb" review, whereas with Priceline I can't find a way to distinguish between a hotel with a 3* or 4* amenity rating but is a dump vs. a 3* or 4* new property or newly remodeled. In short, I've not found a check-and-balance on PRICELINE to link quality with amenities... One interesting feature of HOTWIRE hot Deals is that when you click on "See Details" of the hotel it appears to be somehow integrated with TripAdvisor - I'm looking at a 4.5* hotel in Times Square Theater District with a 95% thumbs up, a pretty generic set of amenities (Fitness Center, Restaurant(s), Business Center, High-Speed Internet Access, Accessible for the blind), and a 4* TripAdvisor rating for 4/19/13-4/21/13 for $308/night. My question is: In addition to looking at (and trying to make a match with) the list of hotels for Times Square Theater District with 4.5* on your BetterBidding.com site, can I rely on the TripAdvisor rating of 4* to further try to pinpoint which hotel it could be? Thanks, Joe

  8. Used the Better Bidding PRICELINE link at the top of the page... Tried $55 and was rejected.
  9. BrianD4, Thanks for the tip. I decided to catch a cab from the airport to the hotel ($39+tip) instead of rental car. The hotel has a Hertz counter, so I may rent a car for a day - we'd like to get up to the North Shore area to catch some rays and watch the big waves... Thanks, Joe

Third bid Waikiki Beach and Honolulu Airport and Ihilani (Resort + 5*) @ $125 rejected. Fourth bid Waikiki Beach and Honolulu Airport and Ihilani and Diamond Head (Resort + 5*) @ $130 accepted. Parking is $27/day self and $33/day valet. Internet access is $15.95 per day.
  11. Quick update: Hotel was built in 2000 and is in good condition. The king room I had was bigger than an average hotel room (such as the Wilmington Courtyard). The hvac system worked great - the fan stayed on all of the time. (I hate hvac systems where the fan only turns on when the room needs to be heated or cooled - but then turns itself off...) Free breakfast included hot items such as bacon, sausage and eggs. Internet access is wireless. Swimming pool is outdoors and non-heated. hot tub is indoors. Thanks to BetterBidding.com for providing the links to bid as well as the ability to share the results.
  12. Wilmington area 2.5* and 3* selected. First bid @ $37 rejected. Added Wrightsville Beach and increased bid by $10. Second bid @ $47 accepted. According to the Priceline site, this hotel offers free breakfast, internet and parking.
