How do I get the best deal with Hotwire?

Hotwire works a bit differently than most online booking agencies.

You may have heard of the idea of a 'mystery' or 'surprise' hotel from other providers, where by withholding the name of the hotel you'll be staying at, you'll be able to get a much better rate on the property. This is for a number of reasons. Sometimes the brand doesn't want to be associated with discounts, or they have empty rooms they'd like to fill up without advertising lower-than-rack rates.

But don't worry, you'll be given enough information that should make you feel a bit more comfortable with your stay. For example, they'll usually tell you the star rating of the hotel and the general vicinity that the hotel is in. If you're familiar at all with the area, you may even be able to figure out which property they're selling. You'll often be shown a few example hotel brands that may help you feel a bit more comfortable with your stay. It should display them in a similar way to what's below:
Booking

Just by not knowing the name of the hotel until after you've secured your booking, you're instantly able to save loads on your stay! It's that simple.
