Hi all,

 

It's been a while since I've done this!

 

I am looking for a minimum 4 star hotel in San Francisco, September 1-2. I guess my absolute max is around $120, but hoping to settle around $100 or so. I know that may be a little optimistic.

 

My zones are pretty much anything in walking distance to BART, since I'll need to head to airport on Sept 2: Civic Center South - South of Market, Financial District - Embarcadero, South of Market - Moscone Center, Union Square East - Nob Hill, Union Square West.

 

I remember rebid zones, but can't immediately find what they are for San Francisco with these conditions.

 

Would appreciate the help 🙂

Based upon current rates for your dates your expected bid amounts are not realistic... for a 4* or better hotel in one of the zones you have mentioned above you will more likely need to be around the $140-$160 range.

 

What is the best deal you're able to find at an acceptable 4* hotel thru conventional booking channels?

What are you willing to compromise on: budget, star rating, or location (the airport zone will likely get you something in the $100-$125 area)

priceline tends to add 40-50 in taxes/service charges

Not exactly.  PRICELINE / HOTWIRE do charge a booking fee which would amount to approximately $8-12 on a one nite booking... otherwise you pay the same taxes/fees as any other hotel guest (and since taxes are based upon a percentage of the room rate, this part should be cheaper thru PRICELINE / HOTWIRE since it's based upon a lower room rate :wink:)

 

As well, we have a current Hotwire Coupon that takes 5% off your purchase, which can mitigate much of the booking fee (our Priceline Coupon requires a 2 nite stay)

Have you checked regular retail rates at 4* hotels for these dates in the zones you mentioned above... as i'm seeing rates starting at $200+ (not including fees/taxes)

 

If PRICELINE / HOTWIRE don't work for your needs and you do decide to book a regular retail rate hotel please do so thru our sister site MAPS and HOTELS.com (which has a great interface to find a hotel in the location that you're hoping for and sort/filter by price and there is no booking fee).

 

Let us know whatever you end up doing for this trip (even if not PRICELINE or HOTWIRE)

Just an update. I decided to just book something closer to the airport. Just decided on today's Hotwire express deal. 4 star hotel near SFO - Burlingame Area for USD 138/night. Used the link, got $USD10 off, for a grand total of USD162.

 

I ended up with the Westin, which I'm quite happy with with the free shuttle and all. It's going for about USD200 on booking.com. 

 

I don't know if it's useful, but I made a screenshot of amenities shown, but not sure how to add it.

 

Either way it showed "Airport shuttle, Business center, Fitness center, Indoor pool(s), Pet friendly, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Self-service laundry, Smoke-free rooms" at the pre-booking page and "Pet friendly, Indoor pool(s), Airport shuttle, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry" after booking.
