I would like to book a 4* hotel in either Bellevue, Downtown-Pike Place-Waterfront-Stadiums, or Downtown-Shopping District-Convention Center-Capitol Hill for less than $200/night.  Dates are July 22-29, 2017.  What should my bidding strategy be?  Thanks in advance!

 

Also, I see a PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal for a 4* in Bellevue for $229.  Any thoughts on what it could be?  Amenities are:

Free Internet, Bed Choice, Business Center, Fitness Center, Non Smoking, Pets Allowed, Swimming Pool

Welcome to BetterBidding!


Confirm your dates on the landing page of the link below:

4* Bellevue for $230
Pets Allowed
Business Center
Free Internet
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> best guess would be the Hyatt Regency Bellevue (or possibly the Marriott, although i don't think that property has a pool, but i'm not going to research at this point since it appears to be above your budget anyway, unless you decide you would be willing to pay this amount if it was likely one of these two properties)

 

If you prefer to try bidding you can do the following:

Thank you! Please confirm my rebid zones:

Issaquah, Downtown Seattle Center, Tukwila, Everett South, Kent, Bothell, Lynnwood, University of Washington, Redmond, Northgate, Everett North, North Seattle

 

While I would be okay with any of the 3 4* hotels in Bellevue (Hyatt, Westin, Marriott), I would prefer Hyatt or Westin.  Is there a way to exclude Marriott by saying that I would like a pool (I confirmed that Marriott does not have a pool)?

Yes, you have your re-bid zones correct, but always double check again just before bidding to make sure that nothing has changed since the last time you looked.

 

As far as trying to avoid the Marriott, you can't do that by bidding, your only option would be to go for the PRICELINE EXPRESS property linked above (guessed to be the Hyatt)

I went to do the Priceline Express Deal for the 4* Bellevue and got the following message:

Your purchase could not be completed

We apologize for this inconvenience. Pricing and inventory changes often and the deal you selected is no longer available. Your payment method has not been charged.

We appreciate your patience and thank you for using priceline.com!

 

I tried updating my search and the deal still appeared.  I tried purchasing again and got the same message...any thoughts?

I was afraid that might happen as earlier i saw the offer was no longer appearing on a current search, but i was still able to access with the link above.

 

What if you try thru this PRICELINE EXPRESS link?

Okay, got it!  Hyatt Regency Bellevue.  I ended up paying a little more ($244) to ensure we got 2 double beds.  Thanks again for all your help!

Also, it may be worthy of mentioning that on my first attempt at booking the express deal, I was not given a choice of bedding options. Perhaps the original deal was replaced with a similar one that allowed for bedding options.

Congratulations on your success!

Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and are looking forward to your trip.

 

The high-end restaurant at the top of the Hyatt has a really nice view and a good happy hour with discounted drinks and appetizers (as does most of Bellevue and Seattle... you can eat really well if you are willing to dine early or late (may places also have a late-nite happy hour) and make a meal out of a few appetizers)

Thank you for sharing your win with the board and helping us add the amenity set for this property to the Priceline Express Hotel List.

Enjoy your stay.
