Here I go again doing my annual trip to Madison. Priceline changed their hotel star levels from last year. Madison West - Middleton maxes out at 3*, whereas in the past it maxed out at 3.5*.

I wanted the Marriott in Madison (west), which is Priceline's only 3* hotel on Madison's west side. Marriott wanted $102/night on their website.

Here was my bidding strategy, and of course I used use the site's PRICELINE links to start my purchases and searches.

Bid # Price Added Zones/Ratings Result

----- ----- ----------------------------- ----------

1) $42 3* Madison West - Middleton -> DENIED

2) $50 Madison South -> DENIED

3) $58 Deforest - Northeast Madison -> DENIED

Am now considering other options while I wait for Priceline's "cooling off period" to expire.

I went back and read my post from 2011. Hotwire had what looked to be the HIlton Garden Inn available for $70, so I pulled the trigger. Here's what I got:

While not the hotel you were expecting, hope you're still pleased with the results and this property will work for your needs this trip.

Do note from the Hotwire Hotel List that the Hilton Garden Inn is located in HOTWIRE's Madison West-Middleton zone, whereas the property you purchased is in the Madison West zone, so there was little chance of this being the HGI.

Thank you for using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List with the new amenity set for this property.

Enjoy your stay.

FWIW, I'm pretty sure I selected Madison West - Middleton and not Madison West.

I went back and checked and didn't see a 3* offered in MW but did see a 3* in MW-M for $70. Hmm...

You are correct, this property is in the Madison West-Middleton zone too... the boundaries may have changed since it was last reported to the board.

I'll update the List of Hotwire Hotels accorindgly.

Thanks.
