Please,

I'll be in Washington D.C. with a car on November 15 to 16.

I would like to stay in Georgetown or areas nearby.

I would like to spend:

4* maximum of $100

3.5* maximum of $90

3* maximum of $80

(I wouldn't mind staying in a 2.5* as long as it is safe and clean)

Can you help me with the bidding strategy ?

thanks in advance

I would like to stay in Georgetown or areas nearby.

Exactly which zones, by PRICELINE name, are you willing to accept?

I would like to spend:

4* maximum of $100

3.5* maximum of $90

3* maximum of $80

Have you looked at hotel direct rates for these dates... they're quite high. What is the best rate you're able to find thru conventional booking channels?

No success with the bids above.

I was thinking on trying ALEXANDRIA EAST - OLD TOWN (4* and 3.5*) before starting bid for 3* hotels.

Please, how can I do this ?

At current prices I don't think your bids are realistic but you could try:

Select 4* Alexandria-Old Town...

Bid $70, if rejected add Dupont Circle, GT, Convention Center, White House...

Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $80, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $85, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $90, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $93, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $95, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $98, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $100, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE

Select 3.5* Alexandria-Old Town...

Bid $75, if rejected add Dupont Circle, GT, Convention Center, White House...

Bid $80, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $85, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $90, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $95, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $98, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $100

Since you have not yet bid Alexandria-Old Town, you can do the above immediately and not encounter any duplicate bid messages.

I still haven't tried 3* hotels since I don't know how to include Alexandria - Old Town as well as Arlington

Or should I bid Arlington separately ?

Can I bid 4* and 3.5* for Arlington ?

Can you please help me ?

I'm not really sure what you're looking for from this stay. Your original plans was to stick with the beginning zones and then try lower star levels if the higher star level bidding was rejected... but you've since decided you want a higher rated hotel in other zones. That too was rejected, so it's up to you if you want to try yet another zone at the 4*/3.5* level OR try for the original zones at the 3& level... based upon whatever your goal is for this stay.

Have you done any research in terms of prices for this trip? What is the best price you're able to find at an acceptable hotel in any of the zones/star rating that you've already bid?

This is the problem, it's not about what you want to spend, it's what constitutes a good deal for this particular nite and what a realistic budget is.

What is the best price you're able to find at an acceptable hotel...
