    4* Orlando FL (FEB 26 - MAR 1 2019)

    Why would you even bid as high as $90, when the PRICELINE EXPRESS offer outlined above would basically be equivalent to a $86.45 bid (when using our Priceline Coupon for an extra 5% off): 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.

Walt Disney World Bonnet Creek 4* 8+ guest rating pets allowed business center fitness center pool restaraunt non smoking Resort fee will be $224 for the week States a regular price of $244 in the area the Wyndham maybe? Thanks!

    4* Orlando FL (FEB 26 - MAR 1 2019)

    Ok thanks. I will process to the other two 4* areas. It doesn’t look good tho. I doubt i will score anything below $90 i even tried the 3.5* from $40-60 with nothing to show for it in 2011 Nov, I did a $45/nite bid on Wyndham which was awesome. Those days are gone lol
  10. You can get close to a $150 room rate, but the resort fee is going to put you over your target budget. 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. Let us know if you'd like to proceed or if you decide to forgo this trip.

    The bidding side of PRICELINE will now usually show you the 'worst case scenario' resort fee on the page before you submit your bid. Basically PRICELINE is trying to show you the maximum that the hotel could cost you on an all-in basis. As always, if the hotel has no resort fee then none is payable directly to the hotel (or if there is a resort fee but it's less than the amount shown on your bidding page then the lesser amount is payable directly to the hotel).

    4* Orlando FL (FEB 26 - MAR 1 2019)

    I tried re-bidding on Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Orlando Intl Drive North upto $85 with no dice. I was going to try Intl Drive South - Sea World & Intl Drive - Convention Center - Sea World but the there is a huge resort fee of $91 - $118 for the 3 days. Is this normal to appear on NYOP? I never noticed it before in past bids years ago.
  13. Is it possible to find a 3.5* or better hotel for May 7-11? Amtrak is having a buy one get one sale good through tomorrow ONLY and we are considering going but only if we can get a good deal... prices we are seeing are over $200. We'd like to stay near the theatre district. Yes, I know there are many other areas of NYC and we have stayed there, but my husband isn't hip on subway or Uber and wants to be within somewhat of a walking distance. Thank you for help in advance. Regardless if our decision to go or not, I'll post in the thread what happens. Edited to add: We are looking for $150 base price and that includes any "resort fee" (what are we, going to Las Vegas? sheesh! This is new -- it's been a few years), but extra taxes yada yada, we understand. Basically, $700 total is doable maybe. Thanks!

    4* Orlando FL (FEB 26 - MAR 1 2019)

    OK, so based upon your FOUR acceptable zones and a maximum bid of $90 i would proceed as follows: When bidding 4* in the Orlando area you have NINE 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. Select 4* Convention Center, SeaWorld, Drive North, Universal Resort Bid $60, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $65, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $68, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $70, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $73, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $78, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $80, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $83, if rejected add re-bid zone... Bid $85 If the above is rejected, it would be cheaper to purchase the following 4 star in the 'Intl. Drive South - Sea World Area' zone with the board's 5% off Priceline Coupon: 4* Intl. Drive South - Sea World (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $91/nite with: Free Parking Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> best guess for this one would be the Sheraton Vistana Villages Resort Villas, I-Drive/Orlando Any questions feel free to ask. Please start your bids with the board's BiddingForHotelRooms.com page or with the link above if you go with that Priceline Express deal. Good luck and let us know how it goes or how we can be of further help.

    Yea i didn't include Pointe Orlando cuz we dont like the hotel selection in that area

    4* Orlando FL (FEB 26 - MAR 1 2019)

    Makes total sense, but one additional question... Your original post included these FIVE zones: ... but your proposed bidding above did not include the Intl. Drive - Pointe Orlando, should we include this zone in your 4 star bidding or is this zone no longer of interest? An important question/zone since it may be the least expensive based upon this PRICELINE EXPRESS offer: 4* Intl. Drive - Pointe Orlando (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $55/nite with: Pets Allowed Restaurant Indoor Swimming Pool Airport Shuttle Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center ==> best guess would be the Westgate Lakes Resort And Spa So we now that this is one possible outcome for a 4 star hotel in your original FIVE zones... if this is not an acceptable outcome, i think you can still be successful for a 4* in your other zones but it will more likely be closer to the upper end of your $90 target.

    NYC hotels

    Welcome to BetterBidding! Rates are low for these dates (tbh, i'm somewhat surprised given the length of your stay) but depending upon how flexible you are in terms of zones, these are my thoughts... If you're flexible on zones i would suggest taking this Priceline Express offer (w/ the extra 5% discount offered thru the board's Priceline Coupon): 4.5* Madison Square Garden - Convention Area (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $150/nite with: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Free Internet in room Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas ==> best guess for this property would be the Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan which is a fairly new hotel, gets excellent reviews, and is centrally located a couple of blocks from Penn Station for easy access to multiple subway lines. Not sure how you feel about this area, but it's just south of Hell's Kitchen and north of Greenwich Village, both of which you mentioned as being desirable (so i would think this would offer good access to both). Could you possibly bid on PRICELINE and get this for slightly less, but i wouldn't necessary want to take the risk of potentially landing a different 4.5* property in the zone in hope of saving a few dollars. If you're 'set' on the zones above, we can suggest a bidding strategy for you to follow, and you should be successful at under $175/nite, but again, you would need to willing to accept any 4.5 star (or higher) rated hotel in the zones that you're bidding, which puts something like Kimpton Ink48 Hotel New York into play (ie- a 4.5* hotel in the Hell's Kitchen zone) which gets very good reviews, but not exactly the most central of locations. 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. Let us know your thoughts on the above (or how it goes if you take the guessed Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan offer above) and how you'd like to proceed, and we'll take it from there. PS- if you're new to priceline bidding, or if you bid often, you may notice that the Name Your Own Price is becoming more difficult to find as priceline is constantly moving/hiding it, we have therefore created the following page for easy access which you can bookmark and/or use: BiddingForHotelRooms.com

    4* Orlando FL (FEB 26 - MAR 1 2019)

    My apologizes, I just re-read the re-bid process (I forgot how it worked). It would be #2 4* upto $90 if rejected 3.5* upto 70. I hope I make sense.
  19. Congratulations on your success! Glad to see you received a great deal at this property and that you're excited for your upcoming stay... we're happy to have helped! Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase. Have a great trip!

    4* Orlando FL (FEB 26 - MAR 1 2019)

    No... What is your goal: 1) the least expensive 3.5* or better hotel vs. 2) the highest rated hotel up to your limit (so a 4 star up to $xx, if rejected a 3.5 star up to $xx, etc) or 3) something else?
