Priceline Hotel: 3.5* Orange County (Irvine Spectrum - Laguna Hills) Doubletree Hotel Irvine-Spectrum

By biddingdan,

Recommended Posts

Used the BB PRICELINE link.


Rejected at $60 (with counteroffer of $78) and $65, with free rebids.  Accepted at $70.


I noticed that the PRICELINE EXPRESS pricing was higher for May 30 - June 1 ($78, and then jumped to $88) at this zone/star than for May 29 - May 30 ($74), so I did my successful Name Your Own Price bid for May 29 - May 30 ($70), then did an Add a Night at $70, which was accepted.


It reinforces my belief that PRICELINE EXPRESS seem to be only $5--$15 higher, on average, than what aggressive bidding with rebids can achieve.  In other words, PRICELINE EXPRESS seems to be a pretty good deal.


I was hoping for the Renaissance ClubSport Aliso Viejo, which is also reported for this zone/star level, but oh well.


Other rejected bids: $90 for 3.5* in neighborhoods of Laguna Beach and Dana Point - San Juan Capistrano.
