So I'm heading to Manhattan and wish to be in Times Square, Midtown West or Central Park South districts.... what are your thoughts on Priceline for this time period, impossible or are there any secrets?

I've tried a number of bids so far, differing dates and splitting the stay, have even tried 2.5* and still no avail (I know it's a far period ahead of me but given it's peak season I thought it made sense).

Have tried up to $330 + 10 bonus cash 4* and $175 + 10 for 2.5* and nothing. The calendar of wins for last year didn't give me too much confidence either (only a handful of wins over this period).

Should I potentially look at Hotwire instead or just suck it up and pony up the cash for a retail raping from our hotel friends?

NYE is really the problem and, to a lesser degree, the day before/after with people extending their stay in either direction. You're probably best breaking this stay up into at least a couple of parts. Would that be acceptable? What would be your desired max bid per night? Would MTE or other zones also be acceptable?

yeah i think i'll just keep battling along maybe 12/28 until 1/02 and split into 01/02 until 01/04....

i only wanted to spend a max $330 if I were in TS/MTW (based on retail) ... i think i'll just keep trying but have a flexible booking as a safety net.

Just an update, I got a bit carried away and amateurishly became emotional where I just wanted to win....

anyway I ended up with the 4* Shoreham Hotel in Midtown West (55th & 6th) - bit disappointed but given the time of year I probably didn't have much choice.

Congrats on your success. :)

Certainly not too bad with the lowest rate at $425 for these dates on Expedia. Please start a new thread for the additional nights and we would be happy to help.

Thank you for sharing your win and please use the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches.

Enjoy your stay.
