Welcome to Betterbidding. :biggrin:

 

If you are trying to place a bid at $70, the next screen does not mean that that bid has been accepted - you have to click to finalize the purchase and then the service searches to see if any hotels will accept. Additionally, there is no way to know exactly which hotel you will get when bidding - you have to be willing to accept any hotel at that star rating in that zone.

 

On PRICELINE EXPRESS I'm seeing (please confirm that the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the link below.)

 

3* Downtown - Seattle Center - Space Needle - Lake Union for $88
Business Center
Restaurant
Free Internet
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
>>>A guess here would be the Holiday Inn or Four Points Sheraton Downtown. You can also use the site's promotion for PRICELINE EXPRESS in my signature, which takes 5% off. This brings the per night to $83 and change before taxes/fees. You were trying to bid $70 for a 2* (which may not be accepted). This would be a 3* for about $14 more per night than the bid you were going to try and this actually gets good ratings (the listing has an 8+ rating.) The 2* you may win bidding could definitely not have as high a rating.

Would the 3* be of interest? Let us know what you decide or if we can be of further help.

Please keep all posts for the same stay in the same thread. Once you win a hotel, use the 'ADD REPLY and REPORT WIN' button on the upper right corner of the page to edit the topic title to reflect your win and to provide the details of your purchase. This helps keep the board better organized by reducing the number of unresolved threads that don't have any follow-up or conclusion.

 

To summarize:

2* or higher

Northgate - Northwest Seattle or Downtown - Seattle Center - Space Needle - Lake Union

$79 or less

 

To move forward...

Are you willing to pay more for a higher rated hotel OR is the goal the least expensive 2* or better for this stay?

 

What exactly is it that is important to you in a hotel for this trip? (what is the most important factor(s)... price, location, quality of hotel, etc)?

 

As it appears you were originally due to check-in yesterday, and as it's already 6pm (PST) today are your plans firm and are you ready to purchase a hotel for tonite?

The most important factor is for this trip is price. The lowest rate possible is what I'm looking for; least expensive 2*. I am unable to afford anything over $80/night. That is the maximum I can spend.

Confirmed check-in date is 10/27. My check-out date is TBD; either 11/2 or 11/3.

When will your dates be finalized (as it looks like you have have delayed check-in by another day as well)... as it's possible that the rate changes based upon your check-out date, which would effect our suggested bidding strategy.
