Hotwire for hotels

Wondering if anyone has used Hotwire recently...looking at 2 nights in Miami Beach and could save over 100 so thinking of cancelling existing booking and booking through HW. Are the hotels really what they say ie 3 star or 4 star?

thanks

Yep - used it many times, most recently to get a Hilton in San Francisco last year.

As above, better bidding can help you identify the specific hotel with a high degree of confidence, but you have to be prepared that it might not be a specific hotel that you want.

Because of this small risk, I always go for 4/5* as I'm unlikely to be disappointed with any hotel of that standard I get given.

I was looking at Hotwire for a Universal hotel and I noticed it tells you itll be one of four hotels and gives you a picture of the actual room. With a bit of research you can tell which hotel it is. Unfortunately I havent found anything yet.

Its not normally too difficult to work them out. Narrow down the area and star rating and you should be able to match them up with their review, rating and was price. Theyre normally the best options to check. Disney often drop their rooms on there and Priceline secret hotels for last minute bargains. AOA mermaid rooms are on Priceline for the beginning of June for $92 a night at the moment.

Check out betterbidding for lists of previous hotels and a tool that helps predict the hotel. Also there is 10% off with GETAWAY10 until 24/5.

Just be aware that their headline prices don't include taxes. You need to click through to get the actual price you will pay
