I am looking for a hotel 2.5 to 3* in Orlando from 4/6 to 4/16. 4/13 to 4/23.

 

My budget is 50/night tops, but I am looking to pay around 35 - 40 (if possible)

 

What would be a great starting bid guys?

 

Thanks

Just one thing before proceed, the final dates changed to 04/13 to 04/23... Is it possible to change the topic name to the correct dates?

 

The areas are:

    
Intl. Drive - Convention Center;
Intl. Drive - Pointe Orlando;
Intl. Drive South - Sea World;
Universal Orlando Area - Intl. Drive North;
or Downtown Orlando...

 

There is one deal that looks ok on the priceline express deals:

 

2.5-Star Hotel  

Intl. Drive - Convention Center - Sea World Area - U$51

 

and one on Hotwire: 

3.5-star Hotel in SeaWorld - International Drive South area - U$52

 

Both on top of my budget, so did not really fell for them lol

I'm not sure what you're looking for here...

Did you want a bidding strategy for your new set of dates OR are you instead considering just purchasing the PRICELINE EXPRESS hotels above?

 

If you're looking to start by bidding on PRICELINE, what is it that you want to try for first:

1) a 3.5* hotel up to your maximum bid price, then if rejected repeat for a 3* property, then if rejected try for a 2.5* property...

OR

2) price is the most important factor and try for a 2.5* hotel up to your maximum bid price

I would like to try first save as much money as I can in a 2.5* up to my budget, that is $50 tops.

 

Can you provide a good bidding strategy to start?

I stopped at $42 since if this is rejected it would just be cheaper to take the following offer with the BetterBidding discount found in our Priceline Coupon page (confirm your dates on the landing page after clicking the link provided below):

3.5* Intl. Drive South - Sea World for $45 ($43 with the board's coupon code)
Business Center
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> best guess would be the Monumental Hotel Orlando

 

Any questions feel free to ask.

While I keep trying the suggested bid strategy everyday, using PRICELINE link, I am looking hotwire and priceline deals....

 

Today I found the following on Hotwire for U$31/night - total $363.70 + U$80 resort fee due on checkin

 

3-star Hotel in Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek area

65% recommended

Amenties:

Free parking, 

Free breakfast, 

Free Internet, 

Smoke-free rooms, 

Fitness center, 

Pool(s), 

Business center,

Self-service laundry..

 

I know its completelly different from the zones I am biding on, but, for the price / amenities I am really considering get it.

 

What would be the best guess for this property?

 

Thanks again

I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature).

If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 3 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates:

 

3* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $30.00
Free Parking
Complimentary Breakfast
Free Internet
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Business
Laundry
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
==> from the Hotwire Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Baymont Inn and Suites Celebration and would be my best guess for this one (and combined with the current $25 off Hotwire Coupon would make this even a bit cheaper)

Congratulations on your success... glad to see you received a bargain price and it was the hotel you were hoping for.

Enjoy this leg of your stay and have a great trip.
