The crossed out rate is an average price of hotels of this star rating in the zone for your dates, NOT necessarily the rate of the hotel currently being offered. (so is not really a very meaningful bit of information, imo)
The "Last person got __" information is relative to the last person who bought a hotel of this star rating in the zone, not necessarily in relation to the specific hotel currently being offered.
If you'd like help for an upcoming trip please post the details of your stay / hotel offers (star rating, city, zone, room rate per nite, dates of your stay, and the amenities associated with the offer) and we will try to assist and help you land a more satisfactory outcome.
Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.
PS- if you haven't seen it yet, check out our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE?? feature next to each offer in the EASY VIEW tab of our BiddingHelper.com, as it sounds like it's something that you already try to use in your research, but we have put it all in one place for you to make it easy.
