I'm a big Kimpton fan, so I was happy to end up with the Monaco for such a low rate! It was listed at $206/night for my dates on all the major OTA sites.

 

Since I knew Seattle has around a dozen PL rebid opportunities for a 4.5* property, and only two zones that include them, I started out with an unusually low bid ($82) just to see if it'd somehow work. It didn't. I kept upping my bids in $5 increments while adding zones, and finally got lucky with $107.

 

Btw PRICELINE has recently reconfigured two of its three areas in downtown Seattle. It also looks like they changed their boundaries for the zones as well. The one with the Monaco is now listed as "Downtown - Shopping District - Convention Center - Capitol Hill." Since the only other known PL hotel in downtown Seattle, the W, is right across the street, I assume it's also now in this district (and it appears so if you compare the PL zone map with the W's location on Google Maps).

 

The question mark, then, is the rezoned "Downtown - Pike Place - Waterfront - Stadiums" area, which is listed as having at least one 4.5* hotel, though it's not yet been ID'd here. I suspect it may be the new Thompson Seattle, which just opened a few months ago and is located near the water and adjacent to Pike Place Market. (It's also now listed as a 4.5* property on Hotwire.) Alternately, its possible the nearby Hotel 1000 was downgraded.
