How to Identify A Hotwire Hotel Before Reserving
One of the reasons I love Hotwire so much is that unlike Priceline, Hotwire lists hotel amenities before you purchase your hotel room. This is beneficial for two reasons. First, it allows me to ensure the hotel has a particular amenity I want. This is valuable information. Just ask anyone who reserved the Trump Towers in Las Vegas only to find out that the hotel does not have a casino. Or the family who reserved a hotel without a swimming pool. Or the business traveler who booked a hotel without internet access. All of these problems could have been avoided by using Hotwire over Priceline.
More importnatly, the listing of hotel amenities allows me to identify a Hotwire hotel before making a reservation (with a little bit of work). This is great, because as any Hotwire user knows, it's great if you can save money while identifying the name of your hotel in advance. Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to do so.
STEP 1: Visit HotelDealsRevealed.com's Hotwire Hotel Lists
HotelDealsRevealed.com has collected Hotwire hotel information thanks to Hotwire customers willing to share their purchase details. The Hotwire Hotel Lists can be searched by state or province, and city. The result is a list of hotels sorted by area and hotel star rating. Here is an examle - a partial Hotwire hotel list for Las Vegas, Nevada. Hotel lists are available for most major cities in the United States and Canada.
STEP 2: Search Hotwire For Your Hotel
Click on the Hotwire link provided (right hand side of this page) to search for your Hotwire hotel. You will need to provide Hotwire with the city you want to stay and your travel dates. Hotwire will return a list of available hotels, price, star level, hotel area, and the hotel amenities, as shown here.
STEP 3: Compare Hotel Amenities
The Hotwire hotel shown here matches the New York New York Hotel on the HotelDealsRevealed hotel list. The star rating, city, area and hotel amenities are a perfect match. There is a good chance the 'unknown' Hotwire hotel is, in fact, New York New York. There is no guarantee of course, so it is best to be prepared to get a different hotel than the one you were expecting.
STEP 4: Share Your Hotwire Purchase Details
Most of the information shared on this site is from Hotwire customers like yourself. If the information on this site was helpful to you, why not take a moment to share your Hotwire reservation details. You will help contribute to the accuracy of the hotel lists, and doing fellow travellers a huge favor. Just sign up to the Hotwire forum and post your reservation details. It is easy, quick, and good karma!
