fti Posted September 30, 2006 #1 Share Posted September 30, 2006 I was looking on Hotwire for rates for next summer in Anchorage. Something caught my eye as I began typing in random dates. Hotwire is offering what they consider a 2-1/2* hotel (often a 2* by other standards) in central Anchorage (mapped according to their diagram online) for $50 + taxes and their fee for a total of $63.33 (multiple nights incur slightly less in taxes/fees). This hotel has amenities of being a suite, having airport shuttle, a pool, business center, laundry facilities, high speed internet access (not necessarily for free) and a kitchenette. It is hard to tell which hotel this is, but my guess is that it might be the Homewood Suites. I can not find any other hotel with all those features. Extended Stay has many of them, but no airport shuttle to my knowledge. Anyone need a hotel and is willing to grab this deal? I won't know for sure if I will need a hotel for my friend until next week. But I think I would try this if I need it. I already have another hotel booked for one night the following week so the only night I might need another hotel is July 1. I checked quite a few dates in June, July and August and they all seem to be available for this rate. For those not familiar with hotwire, you enter your location and dates, and hotwire comes back with various hotels with various amenities, locations in the city and the price. But you don't know the name of the actual hotel you will stay in until you give them your credit card number and pay. Once you pay, no refunds and no changes for any reason.
