Just wondered if anyone has the inside scoop or a wealth of knowledge on how to figure out what hotel you are being offered? I like the rates but would really like to know where I am staying before I pay. I'm looking at this resort:

3-star hotel in Disney Main Gate - Champions Gate @ $55 per night.

Any ideas what hotel this is?

What are the other amenities? Have you checked betterbidding.com? Sometimes you can figure out which hotel it is using that site.

Very interesting, thank you for posting. I have never heard of this site. Is it what Biddingfortravel is for Priceline? If so have you used both? Which one do you prefer?

TIA,
Alice

I use biddingfortravel for priceline and betterbidding for hotwire. Betterbidding is for both priceline and hotwire but seems to have less traffic and is updated less frequently.
I used betterbidding a couple months ago to figure out a hotel on hotwire. It turned out to be right after checking ammenities and I got the hotel I wanted. Of course there are no quarantees.
