Postby Dan Lambskin » Tue Feb 13, 2007 7:20 pm

my wife is going in a few weeks and they are looking for hotels to stay at.

can anyone reccomend a decent hotel (or general area)?

nothing too extravagent, but not a slum either...i'm sure a run of the mill Holliday Inn or Best Western would be fine

thanks ;-D

I've been half a dozen times or so. What I usually do when going to a big city is identify an area close to where she needs to be, go to Priceline and bid on 4 star hotels within that area. I've stayed in numerous hotels that were regularly priced at $125 per night for $50.

You essentially pick a city and area within the city and make a bid on either a 2, 3 or 4 star hotel. Then within a few minutes, your bid will either be accepted or denied. If accepted, it tells you the name of the hotel that accepted your bid and gives you the opportunity to make a reservation. I stayed at the downtown Hilton and Ramada both in Atlanta for $50 a night when the normal room price was over $125.

Sweet, I'll have to try it. Does it work the same for airfare?

Also from Boston which is why I've never stayed in a hotel here.

I'd recommend just going to Tripadvisor.com and checking out the various hotels based on location and ratings.
