So how high are you willing to bid for a 4* hotel in one of these two zones?

I grew the target area to include Downtown (Gaslamp area) and hit all the San Diego zones with a 4* approach and bid from $65 to $81 and got no results.

To answer your question, I want my hotel to be free. I know that won't happen so my next response is AS LOW AS POSSIBLE!

A question for you - Is it LESS or MORE likely that inventory at lower rates will open up closer to my desired dates?

I guess my real MAX BET will be $95+taxes

I bid $94 on the iPhone app and didn't win for the 4* San Diego Coastal zone but I did get a re-bid opportunity at $116 (I didn't continue).

This is a great game!

Nobody knows. It could go either way.

You got a $116 counter to your $94 in Coastal. Priceline's been known to accept just one dollar more than the offer. Since your limit's $95 I'd try $95.

Hotwire has a 4* in La Jolla for $125, which could be the same hotel. Or it could be a Priceline 3.5* since HW often rates the same hotel higher than PL.

If $95's not enough for a Priceline 4* in Downtown or Coastal it might be enough for 3.5*.

Good luck!

I just noticed this Priceline win earlier today where someone won your exact dates at the 4* Manchester Hyatt (Downtown zone) for $95. You might be $1 from a win Downtown then, if not in Coastal.

The other bidder started 3+ weeks in advance. Rejected $140 on 8/31. Accepted $95 on 9/19. In his/her case waiting paid off, but it doesn't always work out like that.

Colfax, thanks for the help. I have previously stayed at that Hyatt and in my opinion, it isn't worth more than $70/nt. It's a large scale motelish kind of place. It is my only concern in bidding that zone as there are SO MANY rooms in that hotel...

As it appears likely (not certain, as the other user could have taken the last room at that price) $95 would win the Hyatt, and you have bid up to $94, i don't think you have too many options at the moment. You could ...

1) stick with 4* bidding up to $94/nite and hope that lower priced inventory becomes available (of course the Hyatt could lower their rate as well and you could still land that property)

2) lower your star rating to 3.5*, but would still need to keep bids under $95 to minimize the chances of an unwanted upgrade to the 4* level

3) look at HOTWIRE to see what is offered there. It may cost a little more than PRICELINE, but if you can reasonably be assured of avoiding the Hyatt, then it may be worthwhile

Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board.

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

S*%t - It seems I may have received the crap end of the deal... what do you think????

$95/nt + taxes + parking @ Paradise Point Resort & Spa (San Diego Coastal) for 9/23 - 9/25.

I started at $85 and got this one at $95 three or four tries later.

This place has SUCH mixed reviews. Any pointers to getting a nice room?

Sorry to see you're somewhat disappointed in the results.

Best bet is to ask for a room upgrade at check-in (especially if you can research beforehand exactly what type of room you want... 'something with a view of (landmark)' or 'a corner room' typically works better then "hey, any upgrades available". You can also tell the front desk "it's a special occasion we're celebrating my birthday (or anniversary if traveling with significant other, etc) and were hoping for something really nice, are any upgrades available?" (but always ask within reason... don't ask for the penthouse 2BR suite (if there was one) on your $85/nite priceline win). If you're not happy with the room assigned you can try approaching the front desk again (sooner rather than later), "you know, i mentioned it was (my birthday, anniversary, etc) and we were hoping for something a little nicer then Room '353'... is anything else available?" (if the answer is no, then ask "what if i was willing to pay for an upgrade, is anything above the 'standard' room i've been assigned available"?... then you can accept or negotiate the upgrade if something is available)

Thank you for sharing your win with the board.
