Priceline Hotel: Toronto rates are up, no luck today

By zalgon26,

Recommended Posts

using board link, tried 80 on up to 88, adding zones that don't have 4*. Looks to me like Toronto hotel rates are noticeably up for March and April. Any comments about that? Any tips for bidding at certain times of the day or days of the week?

Rates in general unfortunately are up with traffic/demand over the last few years. It may be an instance of particular date/s of travel - what are your date/s of travel and desired budget per night for this stay?

Downtown at the 4* level you are likely looking at $115-130 for an accepted bid, although you could start a bit lower. You could keep trying in the hopes that rates will come down to your desired budget, raise your max bid or consider lower star ratings. $90 may be tough though, unfortunately, especially if you are looking at $90 "all-inclusive" (w/taxes/fees)

I mean $90 before taxes etc., am typing 90 in to the bid box. It was rejected and i did "try again", no luck at $92.

Do forum writers think there can be any difference bidding at different times of day or different days of week or month?

There is no best time to bid - Price.line and Hot.wire are entirely a matter of inventory and it really becomes whether or not hotels feel a need for your particular date/s to offer discounted inventory (and how much, if/when, and unfortunately there's no way to know.)

The time of day you bid or the day of the week has no relevance on your bid being accepted or not... it all comes down to supply/demand for your specific dates (or in hotel terms occupancy levels, reservations on the books, recent cancellations, etc)

There are three 'downtown' zones, which one(s) are you bidding?

Using our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com what is the best rate you're able to find for a 4* hotel in the Downtown zone(s) you're bidding?

Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board.

$152. It seems it simply is a highly booked weekend. I'm surprised as it is not part of the "March Break" school vacation. Thanks for your comments. I'll try for the best, and continue to link via the board.

Given the rate of $152/nite, how high are you willing to bid before lowering your star rating or including other zones?
