Priceline Hotel: NYC Rebidding Zones

No, it's not a bug. We see alot of changes across the country. And for NYC is there also new changes. We now see 5* bidding for ESB, 3.5* bidding for LIC, 5* bidding for Upper East Side etc. And like you say, Queensboro Bridge and Coney Island are no longer in play.

So pay extra attention when bidding and always double-check your zones before each bidding cycle to make sure that nothing has changed since previously checking.

Thanks. You're right - there seem to have been quite a few changes recently, even just in NYC judging from my current search. For instance, in addition to what you mention about the 5* in ESB, they now seem to offer 4 1/2* AND 5* options in the CPS, Downtown, MTE, TSQ and UES zones. I think I remember seeing a 5* option on TSQ a while ago, but the rest of the zones on the 5* list are all a first time appearance for me. I wonder if these are new properties or if Pricleine is re-rating a bunch of existing properites suddenly? The only 5* on the BB list in Manhattan that I could see was for the Waldorf Towers. And I saw no 4 1/2* properties listed on the BB list for NYC. I'd be curious to find out what these properties are - but only curious up to a certain price :)
