    • I ask because I’m just hooked on this booking service. I’ve been using them for a couple of years now. I’ve not used them for airline tickets or anything else. Often I end up with a Hilton, Crowne Plaza or other nice hotels for only about $60 a night. You don’t get to see the name of the hotel until you pay for it but I’ve gotten to know the site so well that I can usually guess what hotel I’ll end up with.

    • We have used them for both flights and hotels.  I do like using them and the hotels have always been perfect for us.  Used them the last time we went to San Fran and stayed downtown at the St. Francis.  It was a great price, which of course I can’t remember, and we had a wonderful get away weekend.

    • Cynthia- thanks for sharing about hotwire. I have not used it before. Have you ever used it for international travel? My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Italy right now and looking for some good deals. Do you ever get to see any pictures or approximate locations before hand? In most of our destinations in Italy hotel location is important to us, ie we want to be right on the lake, or right on the canal or really close to the collesium, etc. If not how do you personally chose which anonymous to stay?

    • Cynthia...Do you get to see pics of the hotel before paying at least? Not sure how that would work.

    • I have not used Hotwire but will check them out next time. I have used Priceline and have always gotten decent hotels at decent prices.

    • I have used it and I hate it.  Every time my friends use it, they get lucky and in a nice hotel. Every time I’ve used it, I get stuck in a dump.  The last time I got stuck with what they said was a 3 star hotel and I would have rated it more like a 1.  

      This seems to happen for me when I use such sites. Then it irritates me even more because I don’t get hotel points or airline miles when using Hotwire or Priceline AND get stuck in a dump. In addition, they will honor room preferences for those who book through other sites or directly with the hotels before anyone who gets the room on Hotwire or Priceline.

      That said, I travel a lot and I have favorite service providers and travel preferences.  If I didn’t have any comparisons and didn’t have trouble sleeping, I might be happier using them.
