Priceline Hotel: Having trouble getting a room-New Orleans

By luv2cruz,

Hi, I need a room for 3 people (1 room/2 beds or 2 rooms) for a one-night pre cruise stay in New Orleans 10/29 (Saturday). After lots of research on bidding startegies in the forums (thanks to all!) here is what I have done so far WITHOUT ANY LUCK!


$60, 4*, FQ

$65, 4*, FQ & West Bank

$67, 4*, FQ, WB & East

$70, 4*, FQ, WB, East & Airport

$75, 4*, FQ, WB, East, Airport & Metairie

$80, 4*, FQ, WB, East, Airport, Metairie & Garden District

$65, 4*, all of the above plus Central Business District

$65, 4*, all of the above plus Boutique


$55, 3* & 4*, FQ & West Bank

$60, 3* & 4*, FQ, WB & East

$65, 3* & 4*, all of the above plus Central Business District

$70, 3* & 4*, all of the above plus Convention Center

$75, 3* & 4*, all of the above plus Garden District

Is it because it is a one-night Saturday stay, or are rooms scarce on this date/weekend (it is Halloween)? Is it too early (4 months away)? Perhaps I need a different bidding strategy? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
