I just wanted to thank you all for this great forum. My wife, son, and I will be visiting the city in Aug. I was able to score tickets from Southwest for $63 RT per person (NH-Philly) and started poking around for a hotel. I read some of the postings and Suzanne's info on Hotwire was perfect! I like the deals, but would find it hard to bid on a hotel room without knowing anythiing about it. Suzanne advised people if it is 3.5 stars and has the following it must be the Sheraton Society Hill - I was looking to stay at this hotel and on their web site they wanted $202 per night - I saved $131 per night!!
Imagine - the hotel cost more per night then the air fair. So for under $500 I got 3 RT tickets and Sheraton hotel for 3 nights!
