I’ve used – and plugged in this space – Priceline.com several times. Most recently got a 4-star hotel room in Los Angeles for $95 a night. But with Priceline, you don’t know which hotel you’ll be getting until after the deal is done.
A very good alternative: expedia.com. It shows you your choice of hotels and prices all in one place. Take your pick. Or, if you have the time, first see how well you can do on Expedia, and then perhaps go to Priceline to see whether you can get a similarly good hotel in the same neighborhood for (say) $30 less. If you can, great; if you can’t, just go back to Expedia and be done with it.
Example: the same Hyatt that cost me $170 with the low ‘group rate’ was listed on Expedia for $99.
Worth a few clicks. Does not bode particularly well for the hotel stocks.
WELL, NOT YOUR SON, BUT MAYBE A FRIEND’S?
Dana Perlman: ‘I don’t know if any of you have come across this website, but it is a wonderful site that was put together by two loving parents who have worked through their fears and anxieties and accepted their gay son. It is a resource and I urge you to share this with anyone who you think might be interested.’

Quote of the Day
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.'~Martin Luther King, Jr.
