Priceline Hotel: 3* San Diego (Downtown and Harbor Island) The Sofia Hotel Downtown

Re-bid up from a start of $70, using 4*, $5 extra each time, including zones 16, 1, and 14. Unsuccessful. Then included 3* at $85, then included zone 6 (Downtown / Harbor Island, my least preferred of central San Diego) and got The Sofia for $95/night at 3*. Grant total is $223.72 with all taxes and fees for two nights.

Possibly could have gotten it cheaper if I'd included zone 6 earlier, but whatever.

I'm happy with it: according to the hotel's website, the least expensive they have for these nights is $159 for Thursday night, and $229 for Friday night. It'll be easy walking distance to Petco for the Padres game, and apparently they loan out free bicycles.

The valet parking (only option) is $30/day, which will make me re-think my plan to rent a car, and possibly take Amtrak from LA to San Diego. I knew this was a risk by including the "Downtown San Diego & Harbor Island" zone in my re-bid, but I'm happy all the same. I've lived in San Diego, and know places I could stash a car for a day or two, but it's probably easiest to just take public transit (limited as it is in SD.)

Did use BetterBidding's Priceline link for this. Thank you!

Yes, there are other 3* hotels in this zone. As well, the star rating you select is the minimum you're willing to accept, so even if this was the only 3* hotel in the zone, there would still be a chance that your 3* bid is upgraded to a higher rated 3.5* or 4* property.

For additional help please continue your Priceline San Diego thread and include your dates of travel and target budget.
