Default LMT confusion

Hi there,

I am trying to research prices for a hotel for two nights prior to our cruise from Miami on Feb 9, 2013. I have read many posts about LMT and tried searching for the Intercontinental hotel on Chopin, but I always get a "no hotels match your search" message. Is there a trick to looking for hotels on this site?

Otherwise, we are looking at the Blue Lagoon area. Prices in Miami are outrageously high during February - high season I guess.

Thanks!!

You really can't search for hotels by name because "most" aren't listed under a name. They're catch is the hotel prices are so low they can't advertise the name and won't confirm it until after you book. Most of the time some rudimentary detective work is needed. I've heard that if you find a hotel you like and call the 800 number they will (1) tell you the name of the hotel prior to ordering and (2) will offer a better price than what is listed online.

I did a search for your days and I can confirm that the IC is not currently offered during those nights. You are looking a little early so i would give it some time.

To find the name of the hotel listed when the name is hidden use the below:

http://www.touricoholidays.com/en/Pa...calTgsProvider

but change the "917" to the hotel ID number used by LMT.

917 is the IC downtown.

If you want the Intercontinental look for 34 floors and 644 rooms in the description. This is the Intercontinental.

You're also looking way early for a "last minute" deal. If you are anxious, find something that you can cancel later and then shop for better pricing closer to the date.

Feb of course is going to be high. So you have time to adjust your budget to the area/hotel you want to stay. Rooms at the nicer popular hotels, over the last couple years haven't been offered at the discount rates of the past in the winter months.

Default call for deal

I just booked on LMT for IC in Oct. When I called they gave my an extra $20 off (from $140 to $120) and confirmed that it was the IC before I booked. ended up getting it $100 cheaper than travelocity. Good luck!

I'm a little confused on these instructions. Do I find the hotel ID of the "hidden" hotel on the LMT site, then insert that ID number into the link you provided? I found one, for example

lastminutetravel.com//PageHotelSearchResults.aspx?st=Hotels&cin=2/7/2013&cout=2/9/2013&mod=HotelSearchResults&dst=6634&Provider=18,2 ,6,24,21,23&hn=&str=0&brnd=&AvailableOnly=False&hp t=0&hptf=0&hpstf=0&rooms=1,2,0,&sbp=False&

(sorry for posting the entire link). Where is the hotel id? Is it 6634?

Thanks!!

That looks like the address with your search parameters.

Try this:
When you find a hotel you like from the results page, you'll see each hotel has three options: Description, Map & Directions, Photos.

Place your cursor over any of those three and don't click on it. On the bottom of your screen you'll see a line pop up that begins with "javascript" and in that line is a number like "917" and that is the hotel code. Plug that number into the link I provided and it will show you what hotel it is.


The Tourico companies all utilize the same hotel codes so really you're searching the main site for the hotel name that is provided on LMT.
It used to be easier when you could click on the undercover hotel and it open up in a new page and you could grab the number from the address bar. Now they open as a pop-up.

I hope I explained it clear enough. let us know how it works out.

OK,

I have it working now.

You'd think being a Javascript programmer for fun, I would have noticed that!

Thanks again!!

Hi, I have used LMT before as well and I understand your explanation
but they are running a special and I can't figure out where to plug
"the number" into your link......the hotel is located in downtown,
next to the James L Knight Center.....4.5 stars......It is not the IC...
may be the Hyatt or Hilton........would you know?
Thanks......for Dec they have a room for $115.00......
