Hey guys, I'm booking a hotel in Boulder as part of a multi day road trip. I am going to be staying there 7/3-7/11. I looked at the maps and I wish to stay in the Boulder zone and to be in a 3.5 star hotel. According to the list there is only one, the Boulder Marriott. I am prepared to spend up to $120 a night. I think what I'm looking for is a bidding strategy but any other help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

When bidding 3.5* in the Boulder region you have TWO re-bid zones. If you're not familiar with re-bidding please read Priceline Re-Bidding Explained and feel free to ask questions and/or confirm your re-bid zones with the board before proceeding.
(NOTE: 're-bid zone1' is not the same as priceline's Zone1, 're-bid zone2' is not the same as priceline's Zone2, etc, etc)

Select 3.5* Boulder...
Bid $80, if rejected add re-bid zone1...
Bid $90, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE...
Select 3.5* Boulder and re-bid zone2...
Bid $95, if rejected add re-bid zone1...
Bid $100

If the above is rejected wait 24 hours and re-try, once again using a PRICELINE link from the board (and not a link from any emails that PRICELINE sends you letting yo know you're eligible to bid again):

Select 3.5* Boulder...
Bid $105, if rejected add re-bid zone1...
Bid $110, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE...
Select 3.5* Boulder and re-bid zone2...
Bid $115, if rejected add re-bid zone1...
Bid $120

Any questions feel free to ask.

I just got the Marriott Boulder for $95. I used your PRICELINE link. I first bid $80 and they counter $104. I rejected it and bid $90 and $95 and then I got it. Calling now to request two beds.
