Priceline Hotel: 3.5* Northern Virginia (Reston) Sheraton Reston Hotel

Just won this property, still am confused as to how exactly. But, it's okay.

I bid on Reston area for a 2.5* property. I had identified one on PRICELINE EXPRESS that was likely Hyatt House for $73. So, started bidding at $60 for 2.5* in Reston area. Instead got a 3.5* in Reston area. And, when I went to PRICELINE EXPRESS saw what was likely this property sitting there for $44. Oh well.

On another note, has anyone tried calling SPG property after winning on PL and upgrading to club level? I am a SPG member with a few points, was wondering if this might be possible. I might give it a try, and see what happens.

Thank you for sharing your win with the board.


When bidding on PRICELINE the star rating you select is the minimum that you're willing to accept... so in the situation above your 2.5* bid was upgraded to a 3.5* property.


You don't say if your status with SPG would ordinarily entitle you to an upgrade to the club floor, but if you don't have any status with them (ie- Gold / Platinum) i would think your chances of being upgraded are low, if you have elite status then you have a chance, but regardless you should ask at check-in and perhaps hand your loyalty card to them along with your credit card and ID (typically asking if there is any chance of an upgrade to the club level as you hand over your credit card and ID)


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


Enjoy your stay.
