Recommended Posts

As title says I need bidding srategy for Portland ME for strict dates of check-in July 27th to check-out July 30th.

Portland-Portland West

or S. Portland/Scarborough is all I want, not a cent over 100 BEFORE taxes. I know it's the summertime but hopefully I can get what I want since it's not a holiday weekend.

Accepting only 2.5* to 3.5* range.

Looking at nyo price for those dates at this time S. Portland/Scarborough avg 2.5* is 179, avg 3* is 234, avg 3.5* is 232

And for Portland-Portland West avg 2.5* is 305 and avg 3* is 244 and 3* is highest "class" for this zone

Did you first want to try for a 3.5* up to your limit, if rejected try for a 3* and if rejected again try for a 2.5*... OR is your goal the least expensive 2.5* or better for this trip?

Stupidly got anxious since they rejected the 95 bid and kept trying to press me to bid 108 (maybe that 108 would've got me a downtown room lol...doubt it) :/ ....doubt i'll save much on this trip but I got the Doubletree By Hilton Hotel Portland, Me (South Portland by Maine Mall). Probably overpaid by 20. I hope to God the internet is free.

It's a 3*

I forgot to mention after the rejected the 95 bid that they accepted a 102/per night bid....I went over my max actually is what i did wrong....but according to NYOP I still saved 57%. Still seems pricey it being being almost 7 miles from downtown and again it's the weekend (even if it's a summer weekend....i've stayed cheaper in other areas this summer).

Also the hotel is a decent 3* not a 3.5*. Thinking back to when I came up this way for memorial day weekend...the bids they are accepting aren't really much cheaper it being a non-holiday weekend. It's busy here but not as packed as they were letting on.
