      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

Hello, 

 

I am new to PRICELINE bidding, and I'm hoping for some strategy advice. We are not too picky about the hotel, but since it's a 4 night stay I figured 3.5 stars and up would be more comfortable. We would like to keep our price under $100/night. Above that makes an apartment the cheaper option.

 

Is there an advantage/disadvantage to bidding this far out from our trip? Is there a timeframe that is most competitive.

 

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

For New Orleans how about this PRICELINE EXPRESS deal:

 

4* French Quarter - Canal Street (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $85/nite with:
Fitness Center
Business Center
Restaurant
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
Free Internet
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
==> i'm not 100% certain, but i believe this may be the New Orleans Marriott which has previously been seen with this amenity set before, and would only be a few dollars more than the 3.5* offer...

 

3.5* French Quarter - Canal Street (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $81/nite with:
Fitness Center
Business Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
==> Doubletree Hotel New Orelans would be my best guess for this one

 

I'm also seeing from HOTWIRE:

3.5* HOTWIRE French Quarter - Bourbon Street for $73.00
Restaurant
Pool
Indoor Pool
Fitness
Smoke Free
Free Internet
Hi-Speed Internet
Business
Laundry
Golf
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==> best guess would be the Wyndham New Orleans - French Quarter

 

4* HOTWIRE French Quarter - Mississippi River for $96.00
Restaurant
Pool
Fitness
Smoke Free
Hi-Speed Internet
Business
Tennis
Spa
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==> my guess for this one would be the Hilton New Orleans Riverside

 

Do any of the above work for your needs?
