Hotwire Hotel: 3.5* Milwaukee (West) Radisson Hotel Milwaukee West

By nelsondd,

Recommended Posts

I've researched winning bids for 4* in downtown Milwaukee. Most recently I read about success $69/night (at Hyatt I think) for this past weekend (8/25 - 8/26). To date, I've entered 4 bids via the PRICELINE link on the betterbidding site would no success for the weekend of 10/5 - 10/7. Here's my bid history:

8/26: Bid $90/night - No success

8/26: Bid $100/night - No success

8/27: Bid $110/night - No success

8/27: Bid $118/night - No success

I understand I'm no longer bidding in "summer" months, but I'm approaching twice the rate of the last winning bid.

Thanks for your help!

There is no actual connection between HOTWIRE and PRICELINE. They can have entirely different hotels in their inventories.

A little bit better clue - the retail side of PRICELINE. Although there are 4* hotels there, they have no availability for your dates. This still isn't 100%, since there can be different hotels in Priceline's retail and bidding sides.

A better clue - the Hyatt is showing no availability for your dates. The Ambassador is showing a $203 rate. I didn't look up the other ones, but is definitely appears there is an event in town.

There is 3 1/2* bidding available?

Alternatively, you could reserve a cancelable back-up place, and then keep bidding. Sometimes, for events, hotels reserve large blocks of rooms, and then release the unsold ones at the last minute.

For future reference, you might want to look at the PRICELINE FAQ on how to use free rebid zones (Priceline Re-Bidding Explained). At the 4* level there are lots of them.
