We recently booked one room at a 4 star hotel through the Hot Rate system and got a - seemingly - good deal. Although upon further research it turned out that we could've gotten the same rate by booking directly at the hotel apart from the 10 dollars we saved in total. Yes, 10 dollars.
Our savings amounted to about half a percent of the total cost. With marketing scams like "save up to 50%" and "ridiculously low prices", keep in mind that the only thing ridiculous is your small savings!
Also, please note that the median prices (the crossed out price on the offer) are "based on median published rate we've found on leading retail travel sites in the last 24-48 hours for the same neighborhood, star rating, and stay dates". This DOES NOT mean that the Hotwire hotel costs the stated price. In fact, I'm sure Hotwire has NO hotels with rooms that expensive. Instead you get a hotel with a much smaller saving and they base their prices on other travel agents with nicer and more expensive hotels than what Hot Deals has to offer.
I'll never book anything through Hotwire again.
