    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

Hello - I am traveling with my family - not 100% sure where in San Francisco to stay, kids are 13, and 16.  We love activity, we are very able to walk, want someplace safe and fun!  After briefly looking through reviews and comments, I was leaning towards Fisherman's Warf, but wow-prices are steep.  I see 3 star for $399 per night, is this typical?  I am not sure what my budget is, it is flexible, but $399 is certainly not it, hoping to score a deal.

 

Traveling March 14-17, all weekdays, hoping there isn't a large event driving prices up - help!!  What area in the center of the hub in San Francisco can I expect to get a big bang for my buck (aka - get a steal)?

 

We usually are in a 3 star or higher room, pool, and continental breakfast is always a plus not necessary.  We are truly flexible and open to suggestions.

Welcome to BetterBidding!


San Francisco has gotten more expensive over the last 5+ years (all markets have as the economy has improved, but the price increase as been greater in San Francisco than in other areas).  As well, there is a Game Developers Conference taking place over your dates with an expected attendance of 26K, not to mention that you're searching for quad occupancy which in a city like San Francisco will often limit your options and increase prices.

 

With the above noted, there are certain better options than the 3 star hotel that you referenced for $399/nite.  Search using our BiddingHelper.com and in the EASY VIEW tab you can:

1) on the left side of the search results place checkmarks next to hotels that are 3* and higher rated

2) also on the left side only checkmark zones that you're willing to stay in (Fisherman's Wharf, Financial District, Union Square East, Union Square West are typically the most frequently used so i would start there)

3) above the search results click the PRICE link which will sort the results from lowest to highest

 

Following the above you'll see 4* hotels in the Fisherman's Wharf zone starting at $250 and going up from there... is this within your budget for this trip?  Are any of the filtered options listed of interest?

WOW - Thank you for this quick response!! All the information is greatly appreciated, I will make sure to report back. 

 

Another question - using Priceline or Hotwire, typically should I try now, or wait until closer to travel time to book?
