Hi

I'm planning a trip on relatively short notice to London arriving on January 31 and departing on February 4. Area is a bit more important than star rating, but in the best of all possible worlds, I'd like to give a try for either a 5* or 4* in Zone 1 (Bloomsbury/Marble Arch) or Zone 7 (Mayfair/Soho) and possibly Zone 2 (Chelsea/Knightsbridge) or Zone 12 (Westminster). Again dreaming for the best of all possible worlds, I'd like to spend a max of around $150 per night plus fees. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks very much - love this site!

Did you want to bid only for the Bloomsbury/Marble Arch and Mayfair/Soho zones first before adding Chelsea/Knightsbridge and/or Westminster?

Did you want to try for a 5* up to your limit first and then if rejected try for a 4* OR try for the least expensive 4* or better in any of the acceptable zones?

Let us know and we'll suggest a strategy for you to follow.

At the 5* level you have SIX 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.

(NOTE: there are no 5* hotels in Bloomsbury-Marble Arch so we're not including that zone in your bidding below)

Select 5* Mayfair-Soho...

Bid $110, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $120, if rejected add re-bid zone...

24 hours after your last rejected bid (ie- not when you started bidding, but your last rejected bid) i'd continue on for just the two zones you want...

At the 5* level you can repeat the same strategy above if you want to give that another try.

Select 4* Bloomsbury-Marble Arch...

Bid $110, if rejected add re-bid zone1...

Bid $120, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE

Select 4* Mayfair-Soho...

Bid $110, if rejected add re-bid zone1...

Bid $120, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE

Select 4* Bloomsbury-Marble Arch and re-bid zone2...

Bid $125, if rejected add re-bid zone1...

Bid $130, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE

Select 4* Mayfair-Soho and re-bid zone2...

Bid $125, if rejected add re-bid zone1...

Any questions feel free to ask.

If the above is rejected did you then want to try for a 5* including the Chelsea-Knightsbridge and/or Westminster zones... then if that is rejected try for a 4* in all four zones?
