First of all using your PRICELINE link we bid at 100 USD and got a counter for 121. Went back out and again using your link chose 103 USD. Got the same counter offer.
Then using your HOTWIRE link, we saw this deal at AUD 709 (sorry we didn't choose USD so not sure about that price) and thought because it said "boutique hotel" it was most likely not Le Meridien.
Amenities shown are:
Free Internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Indoor pool(s), Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Spa services, Children's activities
Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower
A little cheeky of them to call Le Meridien a Boutique Hotel don't you think?
Any idea how many rooms a hotel has when it is no longer considered boutique? 381 is quite large!
The hotel will suit our needs fine but I am tempted to contact hotwire re the boutique hotel listing.
