Bidding failures: Dedham, Randolph, Needham, Southie - 10/4

<r>I just need a place to crash after a wedding in Randolph , and I have the option of using Hilton points at the Hampton Inn Braintree or Marriott points at the Courtyard Norwood, so my max bid was going to be low regardless of what "street" prices were. $55 all-in (so a bid of $45) was just under ...

Columbus DT 2.5* Coutyard $44+5 8/5

<t>I didn't try very hard on this one as I was in a hurry. We needed two rooms for a marketing visit, but didn't know until about 72 hours in advance that we were really going.<br/> <br/> Going rates were $80+ downtown for anything decent. Rates were cheaper out by the airport, but for logistical re...

Detroit Airport - Marriott Romulus - 3*

<t>There are two Marriotts in the Airport zone, one is actually in-terminal, this one is about a mile away with about 8-10 other hotels. There are three Marriott properties all in a row (Fairfield, Courtyard, Marriott). <br/> <br/> This Marriott was newer than many airport Marriott locations, probab...

Re: Boston (South) - Doubletree Club Bayside - 2 1/2*

<t>I stayed there the 3rd weekend in May when all the city/Cambridge hotels were full for college graduations. No real "upgrade" rooms for HHonors Gold status, but they will give Golds free continental breakfast at the Au Bon Pain even on a PL registration if you ask nicely. As my employer is a bloc...

Doubletree Boise DT 3* $29+5 5/22-23 2-rooms

<t>Travelling with a colleague, I couldn't use PL until two days before the trip because plans kept on shifting. I had a $89 reservation at the Doubletree Club from a week earlier, but he couldn't get anything better than a 1.5* type place - for some reason, Boise was pretty well sold out.<br/> <br/...

Re: Hotwire

<t>I've stayed in that Doubletree several times for conferences. It used to be a solid 3* hotel that has dropped to the low end of 3* for a variety of reasons. Since Stapleton has closed, they are really in no-man's land, but at least there is free parking.<br/> <br/> That this is 4key on Hotwire is...

3* Spokane Valley Doubletree $30+5 7/3-7/5

<r>The two Doubletrees appear to be the nicest places in town, so I avoided the Airport zone and focussed on the other 3. The downtown Doubletree was $78/night but only had 1-queen rooms left at that price. The Spokane Valley one was $71.<br/> <br/> After researching here, I saw that $30+5 was most ...

Morris IL 2* - Holiday Inn $12+20 2/15

<r>My cousin (Peoria) and I (Elmhurst 20 mi W of Chicago) were looking to get together someplace between us for dinner and to discuss an upcoming vacation. I hate driving at night, so I decided that I wanted a place to crash out for the night.<br/> <br/> Ottawa gives Ottawa/Peru/Oglesby as choices (...
