I've been bidding the last few days but having much luck, my highest bid has gotten up to $94 for both 3.5 & 4 star. I used all my free rebids. Should I just keep trying each day? Must be downtown... how bad are the 3 star?

Welcome to BetterBidding!

I don't think you're too far away from a win... another $5-$25 may be all it takes for a 4*. What is your maximum bid for this stay?

#1 criteria is to stay in 'downtown Seattle' so willing to do a 4, 3.5, or 3 for 3 nights (headed to Portland for 4 nights after) I would really like to get something for about $75 but it doesn't seem like the 3.5 star or 3 star are budging at that price either and on HOTWIRE that time period has extremely high prices.

I have been using Bonus Cash, do you think this is hurting my chances?

HOTWIRE has a 4* hotel at $125/nite and a 3.5* at $112/nite... i wouldn't consider these 'extremely high' for Seattle in the summer.

If you're not willing to raise your bid (like i said previously, a bit more, maybe $105-$115 may be enough for a 4* hotel) i would book a refundable back-up and continue to bid 3-4 times per week.

I don't think the bonus money is hurting... it's probably helping. Please use the links on the board with your bonus money as follows:

1) click the PRICELINE link on the board

2) go to the MY PROFILE >> MY REWARDS link at the top right of their home page

3) use the bonus money link in the MY REWARDS section of your profile (not a link from an email) and bid as usual

Keep us updated and let us know if we can be of further help.

My dates are incorrect in this thread. It should be 7/22-7/25 in downtown Seattle how do I edit??

Also since I'm just trying to get any hotel at this point is it best to have only one star selected or have 4, 3.5 and 3?

I've edited your topic title accordingly.

At this point what is your maximum bid for this stay?

Are both (Seattle Center-Space Needle) and (Seattle Downtown-Pike Place) acceptable or is Downtown-Pike Place the only zone you're willing to accept?

Let us know the above and we'll take a closer look at these dates.

Westin $171

Decided to change our orginal dates from 7/22 - 7/25 in downtown Seattle to

7/22 - 7/23 Seattle Airport

7/23 - 7/ 24 Downtown Seattle and then take the train to Portland Saturday night instead of Sunday morning since hotels are very price 7/24 - 7/25 (Sat night)

Congratulations on your success!

Still not cheap by any means, but given the high demand for this nite too i think you did well and received a very nice property (ask for a high floor if possible as the views from some of the rooms here are fantastic)

Glad to see you were able have some flexibility in your plans in order to make this one 'work'.

Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your bidding.

Enjoy your stay.

Thanks, I will call and request a high floor.

To others this is also a lesson learned to always book a back-up refundable hotel :) Which I should have done back in the spring when I booked the flights.

I think we'll be everything we wanted to do with our time in Seattle. I've booked the 5pm train from Seattle to Portland, so we'll have an extra night in Portland then previously planned
