Priceline Hotel: 3* Portland (Downtown Portland City Center - South Waterfront District) Courtyard By Marriott Portland City Center

I chose the zone OR - Portland (Downtown) from the list, but note that it is now called Downtown Portland City Center / South Waterfront District.

I bid through the Priceline link.

I saw a 3* on Priceline Express that varied between $105 and $107. I deduced it was the Courtyard By Marriott Portland City Center, so I thought it was likely I would win it on a bid.

 

I worked upwards, and at $80 I got a counteroffer to bid $106. I used a rebid zone, and I waited 2 hours and then overnight and so on, but finally I went from $92 to $94, and won it at $94.

 

Note that this is not the same as the Courtyard by Marriott on the other side of the river, but it's clear from TripAdvisor that people do get them confused. 

 

I saved a lot over the website price. However, for me, this is still very expensive for Portland remembering how it was in the past, but so it goes. Also the fact that I wanted to be Downtown rather than in the Convention Center zone definitely raised the price. Hotwire was quite a bit more, so I wouldn't save that way, and no reasonable hotel downtown showed up on any direct site for a cheaper price.

Congrats on your success. :)

Nice win for this property and hope you are looking forward to your stay. With a lowest rate on Expedia of $244 for these dates, I'd certainly say it was a good deal.

 

Thanks for letting us know about the change in zone name so that we can update the site's Priceline Hotel List.

 

Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches.

 

Enjoy your stay.

When I checked out, I got an itemized receipt that said the room rate was $92.50. So maybe I would have won at $93.

Very nice stay at a well-located property.
