Hotwire Hotel: 3.5* Ottawa (Downtown) The National Hotel and Suites Ottawa

By zalgon26,

Recommended Posts

Will start downtown only, 4* only, if max bids, add zone (where there are zero 4*), next step would be add 3.5*. All this to just below current Express prices, then would bail. It seems any 4* or 3.5* downtown Ottawa would be fine. Hoping for $65-75 (plus taxes, fees).

PS. Any downtown Ottawa parking tips?

Answering my own question here:

If you add a zone that does not have the star level (or higher) you want, you can add that zone(s) without risk of getting a hotel in that zone.

Here are the steps to determine the highest star level in a zone:

In the upper right of the Betterbidding window, click Priceline Quick Quote

Type in Where are you going, select check-in and out dates

In the Priceline window, click the Name Your Own Price tab

Look in "Step 1: Choose where you want to stay" and write down the names of all the zones listed

In Step 1, checkmark number 1

Look in "Step 2: Choose the star level", and write down the highest star level that turns blue, not greyed out.

In Step 1, uncheck number 1 and checkmark number 2. Beside that zone name, write down the highest star level turned blue.

Repeat for all the zones.

Now you know which zones can be added when you want to up your bid without risk of getting an undesired zone. Say you want a

4* in zone 1. If zone 1's highest star level is 4, and zone 2's highest is 3, you can up your bid (after closing the browser

and starting again using the Betterbidding Priceline Quick Quote link) by adding zone 2 with no risk of staying there because

there is no 4* hotel there. You could continue to add zones which you know do not have the star level you need.

Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your results with the board.

I believe there may have been more amenities than you listed in your post, which would not have been seen unless you clicked the 'See all' link during the check-out process.

Can you please add a reply to this thread confirming the full list of amenities associated with this property... you can still view this information by going to HOTWIRE and clicking the MY ACCOUNT link near the top right of their home page (ie- is there also a Handicapped Parking amenity listed?).

Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases.

Thanks! Enjoy your stay.
