Report 4* Seattle Downtown (Pike Place) - 7/27-7/29 in Priceline Hotels - Washington (state) Posted July 26, 2011 OK, one final post (I promise) to close out this thread. I ended up taking a non-"hot Rate" price for the Bellevue Hotel. After checking each hotel's websites, there were almost no 4*s in Pike Place area for 7/28-7/31... I made a few Priceline bids up to $180/nt for a 4* for 7/29-7/31, but those were rejected like every single other bid I've made for this time period in the past 3 weeks. The price that I got for the Bellevue Hotel on the retail side of Hotwire was quite a bit lower than was available on the hotel's website. The average nightly rate I got was $188, which beats the Hotels.com average rate of $232. This is *far* from a very good deal, but I wasn't having any luck getting any better of a deal. I was expecting to be able to pick up a 4* Pike Place room for $110/nt, but my wife and I just happen to be traveling during an extremely busy time for hotels, evidently!
