3* Magnolia Hotel -SMU/ParkCities 1/16-1/19 $55

Not a formal review, but just wanted to say I was very impressed with the Magnolia. Well worth the money.

3* Magnolia Hotel -SMU/ParkCities 1/16-1/19 $55

<t>Bid in the SMU/Park Cities zone because I was not thrilled with the prospect of the 3.5* Crowne Plaza over in Marketplace/DAL.  And while the 4* Hilton Anatole would have been acceptable, the fact that they charge a 2% fee as well as $20 for parking was a deterrent.<br/> <br/> So I started in the...

Sheryl, I'm guessing mcbrandt meant 4* not $4. It makes sense when I read it that way.

But, just because it makes sense doesn't make it so!

San Juan Puerto Rico October '14 rental

<t>I've been considering a rental car for the last few days of October '14 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and of course I wanted to think about bidding on Priceline. But in doing my research for rental rates, on an economy or compact grade car, I'm looking at Priceline's retail rates and finding $6/day (...

hey bobsledd9, thanks for posting! That's a great rate, IMO. Did you win this on a Name-Your-Own-Price bid, or through Express Deals?

<t>Priceline continues to evolve. Over the weekend I did a bunch of research, and ultimately booked via Priceline retail, for a quaint hotel that we've never seen reported as a NYOP win, and where I didn't want to risk getting something else. So I booked directly (first clicking through the BFT link...

<t>hjan, thank you so much for this post, it's FANTASTIC news! Now it's safe to bid for a Midway Airport hotel!! Finally Priceline has broken down the formerly gigantic Midway Airport zone, which used to stretch from the airport all the way to Alsip, in the south. For a while, Priceline had a smalle...
