  1. By the way - can you please update The Curtis entry on the Hotwire Hotel List from 3.5* to 4*?
  2. Used Bidding Helper to book - thanks for all you do. $73/night + $20.30 taxes & fees = $93.30 Hotwire Amenities: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby Thanks to this site, I was confident it would be The Curtis Denver (especially since the Hotwire site now gives you the option to "Show Hotels" after this message: Your Hot Rate hotel is guaranteed to be 1 of these 4). I chose the $73 ($93 total) Hotwire over the $70 ($92 total) Priceline Express (which I guessed would be the Sheraton Denver Downtown based on past reported wins last December in combination with the amenities list [thank you, "Pet Friendly"]) for the same level 4* hotel because The Curtis had better reviews, charged $4 less for parking ($36 vs. $40), and the location was a tiny bit better for me. Although I love this site, I probably wasted at least an hour just considering all these options that in the end only make a marginal difference (a few dollars here, a few blocks there, a few better versus worse reviews that probably won't matter for just an overnight stay). Anyway, I still love the site and thanks for all you do.
  3. Beaver Creek must not be doing so well this spring. The rates have dropped for a few of the nicer hotels.
  4. Over two years ago, but upon check-in I inquired if the room would have two beds. I didn't ask for it but the front desk was nice enough to upgrade me to a penthouse suite :)
  5. Betterbidding GROUNDHOG15 Coupon code wasn't available at time of booking :(
  6. $231/night * 3 nights = $693 $693 + $198.84 taxes/fees = $891.84 total $297.28/night Amenities: Resort, Free parking, Free Internet, Slopeside, Indoor pool(s), Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Internet access, Golf nearby, Spa services Used the betterbidding BiddingHelper.com tool. Got the expected hotel thanks to the Hotwire Hotel List. Thanks for all you do.
  7. $67/night + $17.40 taxes and fees = $84.40/night. Couldn't use Betterbidding GROUNDHOG15 Hotwire Coupon code because I didn't reach the $100 minimum :( Amenities: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Indoor pool(s), Airport shuttle, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access Got the expected hotel thanks to the Hotwire Hotel List. Paid $10 extra over another option for the better reviews. Used the betterbidding BiddingHelper.com to book. Thanks for all you do.
  8. Debated between the 3* (probably Crystal Inn and Suites) and the 4* (probably Sheraton) for $8 less. From past experience, when booking as 2 Adults/1 Child sometimes hotels only give rooms with 1 king bed (on the other hand, I've also been upgraded to a suite to accommodate the room request). Since I wanted to make sure there were two beds I went with the 3* choice because it included a bed selection option ($3 more to reserve 2 queens). Supposedly the Crystal Inn and Suites also has a nice hot breakfast, too, so that also came into consideration. $74/night + $17.31 taxes and fees = $91.31 total. Amenities: Suite, Free breakfast, Free parking, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Indoor pool(s), Airport shuttle, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby Used the BetterBidding HOTWIRE link to book. Thanks for all you do.
  9. Parking in the Jessie Square garage next door is in the range of $30 overnight. A much better option for travelers who don't need in/out privileges. Also, the streetcar stop is almost in front of the hotel. A very fun and cheap way to travel to/from other parts of downtown and the wharf.
  10. $109/night = $218, plus $53.86 taxes and fees = $271.86 trip total. Also anticipating hefty nightly parking charges in the $60/night range. Amenities Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access Accessibility Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower Thanks for all you do. Used the betterbidding.com HOTWIRE link to book.
  11. $111/night times 2 rooms = $222. plus $60.31 taxes and fees + $50 resort fees (due at hotel) = $332.31 total. Amenities Resort, Free parking, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Spa services Thanks for all you do. Used the betterbidding.com HOTWIRE links to book.

Had better luck pasting to a non-formatted notepad first.
  14. Hotel Amenities Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Accessibility Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Wheelchair accessible Accessible bathroom Accessible parking Roll-in shower Didn't originally add accessibility because it wasn't easy to cut and paste due to formatting issues in the browser I was using.
  15. Used the Bidding.Helper. Taxes recovery charges + fees $10.71 and $20 estimated resort fee brings the total to $78.71. Was pretty sure this was it based on Hotwire hotel list checked against the Tripadvisor rating and Tripadvisor number of reviews when clicking on the listing, so the resort fee wasn't a surprise (listed as $15 on the Orlando parking and resort fees page).
