Help. Best time to bid?

3 posts in this topic

I'm suppose to be making another trip to Pittsburgh from October 23rd to 30th. I have friends in Pittsburgh that I can stay with, but I would prefer to only stay with them 2 or 3 days max, don't want to over stay my welcome. I would want to stay in a hotel for 3 or 4 nights and I would prefer 4 or 3.5 stars. I need a hotel for the rest of the time. Given my situation, when is the best time to book a hotel, during the beginning, middle or end of the week? And would I get a better price if I book now or wait until the last minute?

Please help, any suggestion welcomed

There is no way to know if prices will go down closer to your stay. This is discussed in greater detail in the FAQ.

What would be your desired budget per night, and which zone/s would be acceptable in the area?

I'm scheduled to go to Pittsburgh October 23rd to 30th. I have friends in Pittsburgh but I only want to stay with them for 3 days. I would like a 4* hotel for the other 4 days. What days of the week do hotel have the cheapest rates, the beginning, middle or end? Also is it better if I book it now or wait until the last minute to get the cheaper rate?

Suggestions welcomed
