I have always used Hotwire and never tried Priceline.

When I need to book a hotel for me and other business partners that will arrive on different days of the same week, I always book my room first (i.e. Wednesday- Sunday). Then I go back into Hotwire and add an additional rooms for my partners (i.e. Thursday - Sunday).

I would like to know if Priceline bidding works similarly to how I have used Hotwire in the past as I have outlined above.

Thanks

Welcome to BetterBidding!

If you haven't yet please start by reading your messages.

TWO POINTS TO MAKE:
1) while your strategy above may have worked each time you have tried it in the past, it may not always work in the future. The hotel may have only one room in inventory at the deeply discounted HOTWIRE rate and your first purchase could consume all the inventory (since there was only one room offered at that price). When you go to purchase the additional rooms it's possible that there is no inventory available at that same property to fulfill your request for additional rooms.

2) PRICELINE does not have an "Add Rooms" feature... only an "Add Additional Nites" feature.

We look forward to hearing about, and helping with, your future travel purchases.

Thanks for the information on Priceline. I will probably stay with Hotwire for booking rooms the way I have in the past. You are correct about inventory offerings on Hotwire, sometimes you only get one room.
