  1. For several years, when I bid 3.5* in Greenville, I always get this particular hotel. Usually, I can win it at anywhere from $45-65/nt. This time it was more difficult -- perhaps due to an event or something. I tried bids of $50-69 this whole week and nothing worked. Last night, I bid as high as $100/nt. Still, no success. Only today, two days before the date of the stay, I was able to get $80/nt on the first bid. This is much better than the market rates for hotels in the area. But, I wonder if I could have done better if I had started lower today. I suspect that the hotel may have "released" rooms into priceline that were not available earlier in the week.

  2. Purchased two rooms at $50/nt at the Marriott Greenville, One Parkway East, Greenville, SC 29615 (3.5* hotel). I've stayed here before and it's a great deal for this hotel.

    Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $50.00 (USD)

    Number of Rooms: 2

    Number of Nights: 2

    Room Subtotal: $200.00 (USD)

    Taxes and Fees: $31.20 (USD)

    Total Room Cost: $231.20 (USD)

    By the way, I tried a $45 bid yesterday and it was rejected. Sometimes I've been able to get this one for $45. So, right now, you need to add up that extra $5 to win.

  3. On 6-24-10, I went on PRICELINE today to try to snag a last minute weekend deal on a Chattanooga hotel. I bid on 4, 3.5, and 3 star hotels at up to $70/nt (tried in the 50s, 60s too). Nothing. I read a post about trying a 2.5* in the downtown area because the Priceline options were fairly good and it was likely I'd end up with the Chattanooga Choo Choo. I took this advice and bid $45/nt and it was accepted for the Choo Choo. Not a bad deal.
