I've been thoroughly intrigued by this site by reading through the forums, so I decided to join and post.

 

 

My family is going to be taking a road trip up to San Fran and we are looking for a 4* hotel in either Nob Hill, SoMa, or Fishermann's Wharf...  I'd like to spend no more than $200 a night--before taxes and fees.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to BetterBidding :)

 

My family is going to be taking a road trip up to San Fran

How many adults/children are in your party?

 

Please note that PRICELINE and PRICELINE EXPRESS only guarantees double occupancy, after that is at the discretion of the hotel. While you can call the hotel you win and request a room with two beds, the hotel may not be able, or willing, to honor your request. Whether they will/can or not depends upon a LOT of different factors, including what is available at the time of your check-in, how many rooms with two beds are offered at the hotel and what they need to accommodate other guests for your dates, hotel policy etc.

 

HOTWIRE guarantees sleeping accommodations for everyone you include in your search (up to 4 guests)... this often means two beds in the room, but the second 'bed' could be a pullout sofabed, rollaway brought into the room, etc.

 

So my suggestion would be that you use HOTWIRE or PRICELINE EXPRESS (if the listing got a bed choice for two beds).

 

Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.

 

Let us know your thoughts and we'll go from there.

To clarify, any PRICELINE or HOTWIRE (when searching for two people) will ensure accommodations for two people... a king bed is not necessarily guaranteed (although you could use PRICELINE EXPRESS and look for a hotel with the 'Bed Choice' option to see if any of the choices offered are for a King bedded room)

If you're OK with the bedding comments above i would bid as follows:
