We stayed at Lakeside for 10 nights in January- while it is older, we enjoyed it. Room was super clean, hotel was close to shopping, dining, and the WDW Main Gate, and the price was right (we paid $34/night on Hotwire). We'd stay there again for sure.

3.5 Hyatt Regency Orlando Airport

I noticed that 3.5 Hyatt Regency Orlando Airport was won on Priceline several times for $43. Is it also on Hotwire and if it is could someone give some indications as to which one it is. Thank you.

On HW, Hyatt MCO is a 4* in MCO area. Once you click on it, continue down to where you see the HW map. It will give the tripadvisor.com rating. Hyatt MCO will be 4.5* out of 5 with over 140 reviews. This last part is very important and the only thing that distinguishes Hyatt from Renaissance Hotel which will be 4.0*/5 for ta rating.

good luck!

Thank you!! It would appear that it's not listed at this time according to your info. There is only one 4 star and it's 4.0*/5 for TripAdvisor.

Question for you priceline pros:
When would you recommend booking for May 2010? It looks like it will accept a bid now for that timeframe, but would it be better to wait?
Thanks!

I am not an expert but I wouldn't use priceline that far out.

I know it isn't WDW, but I used priceline this morning for an AUg trip to Key West.

Got the Hilton Bentley in South Beach for 60% off - have to check the actual price when i get home but I know I bid exactly 60% less than the rack rate

We also got the Hyatt in Key West for $99 for 2 nights and the Waldorf AStoria Reach for 89 for 2 nights

Okay, thanks. I'm just antsy

I just booked a one-night stay (short anniversary getaway) for February and got a local 3* hotel for $37, so I was very pleased with that.
Priceline can be addicting

Not Priceline, but Hotwire - Rosen Shingle Creek 10/15

Got Rosen Shingle Creek for $47+fees. Ended up being a little less than $60 for one night. Our flight gets into Sanford at 5:50 and we check into AKL the following day so we only needed one night.
I don't know anything about this hotel but it looks as though it will serve the purpose!

Hello Rebecca-

Have you ever stayed here before? I had reservations at WDW for 8/16-25 but I had to change to 8/14-23. Now I need to stay somewhere off-site for 2 days. I am going to try two things for the first time; priceline and staying off-property. Even though, I got a nice AAA rate at 110.00 for both nights. I thought this wasn't bad.

This hotel seems very close.... Let me know if you've stayed here. Thanks.

Jose

I got the Hotel Royal Plaza for one night for this November. We needed one night before we check into the Boardwalk for 6 nights.

I use www.biddingfortravel.com to get information before I bid. It helps a lot!

Happy Planning!
