If you want the Waldorf, don't bid 2stars.
I bid on a 3-star hotel - not a 2-star. In the states a 3-star is a Hyatt, Doubletree, Embassy Suite, etc. We do a lot of traveling and generally choose a Hyatt brand hotel. Unfortunately there were no Hyatt hotels available in San Juan so yes, I took a chance on the seemingly popular Hotwire and it didn't work out. Hence, never using again.

I don't need to stay at the Waldorf to be happy and if I wanted to stay at a more luxurious hotel, I would have chosen the Ritz Carlton outright which is a viable option now at only $269.
