Priceline.com Says The Cosmopolitan Of Las Vegas Is Nation's Most-Popular 5-Star Hotel For Valentine's Weekend

















NORWALK, Conn., Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Instead of a bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day this year, priceline.com (Nasdaq: PCLN) customers seem more inclined to give their significant others a stack of casino chips.  In a survey of the most popular destinations and hotels for Valentine's weekend and Valentine's Day, priceline.com found that Las Vegas clearly held the winning hand.

The survey was based on published-price hotel reservations made through priceline.com for check-in between February 10-14, 2012.

Las Vegas hotels dominated the Valentine's list.  The most popular 5-star hotel in town for the romantic weekend is the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection, while MGM Grand Hotel Casino, also in Las Vegas, is the nation's most-popular 4-star hotel.  The Hyatt Regency Chicago is the most-popular non-gaming hotel for Valentine's Week.

Other 4- and 5-star properties making the top 100 most popular Valentine's week hotels, according to priceline.com, include:

  • Hilton New Orleans Riverside, 4-stars
  • Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, 4-stars
  • Aria Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, 5-stars
  • The Waldorf Astoria, New York, 4-stars
  • Renaissance Dallas, 4-stars
  • Hotel Nikko, San Francisco, 4-stars
  • Hyatt Arlington, Arlington, VA 4-stars
  • Grand Hyatt New York, 4 stars
  • Wynn Las Vegas, 5-stars
  • Caesars Atlantic City Hotel Casino, 4-stars
  • Trump International New York, 5-stars
  • Treasure Island, Las Vegas, 4-stars
  • Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, 4.5-stars
  • Loews Coronado Bay Resort, Coronado, CA, 4-stars
  • Hilton Atlanta, 4-stars
  • Hilton Minneapolis, 4-stars
  • The Venetian, Las Vegas, 5-stars
  • Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, CA, 4-stars
  • Parc 55 Wyndham San Francisco-Union Square, 4-stars
  • The Westin Michigan Avenue, Chicago, 4-stars

"Valentine's weekend and Valentine's Day can be great mid-winter getaway opportunities for couples who don't want to travel during the February 20th Presidents' Day holiday, when many families are traveling with out-of-school kids," said priceline.com's in-house Travel Ekspert, Brian Ek.

Priceline.com said it still has plenty of hotels, airline tickets and rental cars available for a long romantic weekend or quick overnight getaway.  Travelers can take advantage of priceline.com's ongoing published-price Winter Hotel Sale that runs through February 20th.  Stays at sale hotels must be completed by December 31, 2012.   For more information on the sale, visit http://pcln.com/wintersale

Priceline's published-price hotel service offers thousands of hotels in cities around the world.  The service has tripled in size over the past three years.  Many of the hotels recently added to priceline.com come from the broad international and domestic hotel inventories made famous by priceline.com's sister hotel reservation services, Booking.com and Agoda.com.
