Guess I will sit and watch at home. LOL>
I knew the hotel situation would be bad if I waited because I got burned in 08. I had my laptop on my lap as I watched the Jets/Pats game. I had my name and credit card info in on Priceline and bid $75 for a 3.5 star downtown hotel. As soon as the Jets recovered the onside kick I submitted the request and in a few seconds I got the Wyndham Grand right next to the point. Just have to walk right over the bridge to Heinz. It used to be the Hilton. It gets iffy reviews as they are renovating but the location is perfect.
Check Hotwire right now. I believe there was a 3.5 star hotel for arount $100 last night. It is probably the hotel I got.
