I scored a fabulous deal on the airfare and almost booked a hotel at the same time, but ended up not doing it. I decided to wait and see more of what was available before committing to a hotel. That was a big mistake. I've been checking every now and then since that day and have never seen anything even close to the great hotel deal I passed by. I wish so much that I had just gone ahead and booked that hotel back then.
Now our travel dates are getting closer and closer, and I still haven't booked a hotel. Nothing seems just right. I've checked all the major discount sites that I know of, to no avail. I am so excited about this trip, but I am also feeling pressure to find a great place to stay.
Has anyone ever used the mystery hotel feature on travelocity or the name your own price feature on hotwire? I am a bit wary, but it looks like it could be a good deal.
