    I am probably taking a last minute trip to Washington DC and leaving in about 3 weeks...I am staying 3 nights. HotWire seems to have some good deals from LAX to DC for Hotel and Flight but I've never used it (or Travelocity/PriceLine) before...

    Has anyone used these services and did it go ok?? Or were you forced to sleep on the street???

    Hurry! :icon_eek: I need to book soon!!!

    I will rep twice anyone who answers!!!

    I asked George if I could use the extra room in the White House but he never responded...:icon_huh:

    Has anyone use Hotwire? I want my flight and my Hotel to actually be there when I check in...:icon_eek:

    Kimmie,

    I tried them, but found I got a better deal just buying from the airline. I have different hotels I use on different discounts, and I haven't got a rental car in years.

    I spent almost a year in DC in the early 90's. Lots to see, hope you get a chance to tour around some.

    Travelocity seemed to have the best deals on hotel/flights compared to the others when I looked. I've had family/friends use that one, and they were satisfied. I don't know about the other two services you mentioned.

    That your family and friends were satisfied is a good sign! Thanks Shammie...I love DC and spent some time there before...you can just feel the power there - it's so interesting...this trip I have limited time but hope to get some good stuff in :icon_wink: Plus I just feel like taking a little vacation...

    I've used both Travelocity and priceline. Godo experiences with both. I also use http://www.cheaptickets.com/ and have had no problems with them. I believe you can almost always get a good deal if you look long enough. PM me if you'd like me to help you find a flight, lodging, etc. :tup:

    Hotels.com is rather expensive in my experience. Sometimes I use them to find a hotel that I'd like, then I try to book it another way, like through the hotel it's self. Often this is much cheaper.

    I did it! :) I just booked through Travelocity and got a good deal to exactly where I needed to go...they had "Last Minute Trip" deals and the one I purchased just popped up today (I've been looking for a few days)

    See...it does pay to procrastinate! :icon_wink: Anyway I'm excited I'm going to DC for a few days with my youngest daughter in mid May...


    I'm sick of travel arrangements...I've been looking at all the sites all day :icon_eek: I know every hotel in downtown DC :icon_eek: every flight and every connection and that you can even take a Segway tour of DC if you want to....:icon_huh:

    Thank you all! :)

    And I finally ordered myself a laptop computer yesterday (that I'm looking forward to)...now the spending spree must stop...for a while anyway. Nite.
