I've been bidding for the last week or so trying to get EWR hotel, maxing at $55 for 3.5 star, $50 for 3 star and $48 for 2.5 star.

Started this morning with my Priceline account and bid as follows:

EWR Zone 3.5 Star, bid $52, no luck. Added Newark zone and bid $55 with no luck. Closed browser, used PRICELINE link of this board and selected EWR and Orange zones, bid $57 with no luck. Added Newark zone (3 zones total, EWR, Newark & Orange) and bid $60 with no luck.

Closed browser, used PRICELINE link on this board and bid $55 for 3 Star in EWR. No luck and no rebids. Added 2.5 start and bid $50 with no luck. I am decreasing my bid amounts because I think I should pay less for 3 star and 2.5 stars (respectively) than I pay for a 3.5 star.

Tonight my husband tried and started with EWR Zone at $62, no luck. Added Newark Zone and bid at $64 with no luck. Closed browser, used PRICELINE link on this board and selected EWR and Orange zones, bid $66 with no luck. Added Newark zone (3 zones total, EWR, Newark & Orange) and bid $68 with no luck.

Closed browser, used PRICELINE link on this board and bid 60 for 3 Star in EWR. Offered option to increase to $76 for free rebid. Declined offer, added 2.5 star and bid $64 and won Country Inn & Suites (actually the hotel I wanted, but if I start with 2.5 stars in EWR zone, I have no rebids, so I followed the method outlined above trying to make sure that I didn't overpay for any given star rating). Given that this is not a 3 star (as would have been guaranteed at $76 free rebid) I'm not sure if I could have gotten it for less. But, it was the hotel that I wanted, so I don't really care. It seems a bit high based on winning bid history I've seen on this forum, but this is the first time I've bid Priceline for EWR. But, I know I tried $55 for a 2.5 star without success this morning, so $64 is OK with me. I am sad that my AM flight leaves so early that I don't get to enjoy free breakfast!

Here is priceline summary:

Offer Price:

avg. per room, per night $64.00

Rooms: 1

Nights: 1 + Add nights for the same rate!

Room Subtotal: $64.00

Taxes & Fees: $17.65

Total Charged to Card: $81.65

And, in case it wasn't clear, I always use PRICELINE link on this forum to start searches & bids.

Congratulations on your success!

Glad to see you're pleased with the results and this property will work well for your plans. Not sure if offered here or not, but some hotels have a 'boxed breakfast' to go for those who leave before the included breakfast or don't have time to sit down and eat.

Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your bidding.

Enjoy your stay and have a good trip.

I will definitely ask about a "boxed breakfast." I've stayed at many hotels and have never heard of, or been offered, a boxed breakfast. Here's hoping!

Hampton Inns offer a "to go" breakfast in a bag.
