$61 for The Henry in Dearborn, Michigan 12/2/2011-12/3/2011 (Friday night stay).

My bidding strategy: I bid $56 initially for a 4* hotel in Dearborn, but was denied. I then added the "Southgate-Lincoln Park" zone because there were no 4* hotels in that zone and increased my bid to $61, which was accepted.

Total after taxes & fees was $76.86 with free parking.

For what it's worth, I used past bid data and figured that $55 would be accepted, but didn't want to mess around with too much strategery. When it wasn't accepted, I expanded the area and $60 was what I figured would work. I bid $1 above what I intended each time because I figure that if $60 is where most people come in (or hotel managers set rates just above/below it), my $61 would edge them out and possibly help me get the room. Obviously, this strategy only works for as long as other people stick to even numbers, but I don't imagine that will really change, and if it does, I'll adapt.

Thanks for running this site and of course, I used the PRICELINE link.
