Does anyone take advantage of the Wot Hotel Mystery deals that are offered on Wotif.com? Wotif seems to be becoming the corporate travel agent for SMEs.
I haven't ever taken up one of the deals as the price difference doesn't seem significant enough to reward the risk of staying further away. I find the 'star' rating on Wotif a little variable.
I wonder if it is a consideration to have a thread or sub-forum devoted to the current success or bids people are having taking up the Mystery deals. What do you guys think? Would a forum devoted to uncovering the real identity of the Mystery deals be beneficial?
I have purchased these a few times and always correctly worked out the hotel prior to purchase. The last one was the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne several months ago which saved about $50 a night. IMHO well worth it.
My last one was I got stranded in Sydney (screw you VirginBlue!) for 2 nights and didn't care where I stayed, so paid $160/night for a 5* wot hotel which ended up being the westin. Incredibly handy, since it's on the airport train line
Is a good idea.
There is a similar forum that has been operating for at least five years for Priceline (bidding not fixed price) that provides feedback on what hotels and what prices - very useful in the US

The Brisbane 5 star is the Sofitel while the 4.5 star is the Sebel Citigate.
