What can I find out about where I'll stay?
When booking Hotwire.com hotel deals, you don't find out your hotel name before paying. But you do get to choose everything except the actual hotel—quality or star rating, amenities, neighborhood, and price. Most people find that this is the key information they want, rather than the actual hotel name.
However, you can find out the typical types of hotels Hotwire uses in each star quality level. Check out Hotwire Hotel Ratings.
Is there a trade-off for these great discounts?
Yes, there is one trade-off to get these great prices, and it is that your reservation cannot be changed once you authorize your credit card. That means you cannot change your dates or receive a refund.
With Hotwire, you'll enjoy room rates significantly lower than those listed on other travel sites—as much as 75% off. Hotels and resorts are able to give big discounts without their regular customers finding out. (Compare Hotwire prices with a site like Hotels.com.)
However, if uncertain about your travel dates, you're better off paying a higher price elsewhere, so that you can make changes.
But do keep in mind that you can make a reservation using Hotwire up until 6:00 p.m. on the day that you are traveling. So, if your travel dates don't get nailed down until the last minute, you may still be able to take advantage of Hotwire's great discounts.
Which dates work best for the lowest prices?
Business-oriented hotels lower their rates on weekends and
holidays, but resort hotels, like those in Las Vegas and
Orlando, have their highest prices on weekends and during conventions.
How does Hotwire's lowest-price guarantee work?
Hotwire.com offers an excellent lowest-price guarantee. If you find a lower price available to the general public for your entire stay (same room type, same type of view, same hotel, same dates . . .), Hotwire gives you DOUBLE the difference on the room rate.
That's a great guarantee.
