    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

Looking for help identifying a Priceline express deal for May 19-23:

Central Park South

$188, drops to $183 when I click on it

Rated 7 out of 10

Business Center

Restaurant

Airport Shuttle

Fitness Center

No Smoking Rooms/Facilities

 

Bed choice is not listed as an amenity, but is an option at check out. 

 

I may need more help with this booking. Dates firm as I am traveling on business. Open to Midtown East, Midtown West, Grand Central, Rockefeller Center/Bryant Park, Madison Sq., Empire State Building, Chelsea, and Central Park South. Times Square not a favorite, but considering the rates during this week I probably can't be too picky.  Star level 3 and above, would like to avoid resort fees, and the New Yorker in MSG. Might not be possible but would like to keep the "all in" budget (room, taxes and fees) under $800 for the 4 nights. So far this Express Deal (using the MAY18BB Priceline Coupon code) is as close as I can get.

 

Will do all my bidding/buying via the links on the forum as I always do. 

Thanks!

For the PRICELINE EXPRESS offer above:

3.5* Central Park South (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $188/nite with:
Business Center
Restaurant
Airport Shuttle
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> The Shoreham Hotel would be my best guess for this one

 

Not in one of your stated zones above, but i did find find this one was well:

4* Upper West Side (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $193/nite with:
Pets Allowed
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> likely the Empire Hotel which is in the southern part of the UWS zone and therefore not too far from some of the other acceptable zones above,, and it about a 2-3 block walk to the 1, A, C, B, and D subway lines, should any of these get you close to where you need to be for work

 

Either of the above work for your needs?

Thank you! I thought it might be the Shorham, but the "airport shuttle" amenity threw me. Either of the above hotels & locations would work. I might try traditional bidding using the PRICELINE links on the board for the 3.5 CPS to see if I can get the price down slightly, I would really like to try to keep this under $800.

If you need help with a bidding strategy let us know your maximum bid price and we'll advise accordingly (just keep in mind that when bidding you could potentially land a hotel with resort fees which would either 1) keep your maximum bid price artificially low or, 2) put you beyond your budget.

 

If you do decide to bid you can use the priceline bidding tab in our BiddingHelper.com tool, OR since the bidding link on PRICELINE has become harder to find, we have set up this website for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com

 

Thanks for using the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board.

This the last night of my stay was causing this booking to go over budget. I shortened my trip by 1 night and through the links on this forum booked a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal for the Embassy Suites By Hilton New York Midtown Manhattan.

 

Empire state building area, 3.5 stars

 

May 17 - 20, 2018

$576.00

Taxes & fees:$143.97

Betterbidding Priceline Coupon:- $28.80 

Total charged:$691.17

 

Amenities:

Business Center

Complimentary Buffet Breakfast

Fitness Center

Non-smoking Rooms

 

Hotel, room, and staff were excellent. Hot breakfast including cooked to order omelettes, etc was a welcomed extra, as was the nightly happy hour with complimentary wine & beer.

 

Thank you for your help!
