I am trying to bid on a 3* hotel in North Bangor, ME. I would like to get the Courtyard Bangor. There seem to be two hotels with all the same amenities, Courtyard Bangor and Four Points Sheraton.

 

Is there any way to bid so that I might get Courtyard? I looked at reported hotel wins for this area, and both come up.

 

Four Points Sheraton:

Free Internet Access

Free Parking

Business Center

Free Internet In Public Areas

Free Internet In Room

Fitness Center

Handicapped Rooms/Facilities

No Smoking Rooms/Facilities

Pets Allowed

Restaurant

Swimming Pool

Indoor Swimming Pool

 

Courtyard Bangor:

Free Internet Access

Free Parking

Business Center

Free Internet In Public Areas

Free Internet In Room

Fitness Center

Handicapped Rooms/Facilities

No Smoking Rooms/Facilities

Restaurant

Swimming Pool

Indoor Swimming Pool

 

The only difference I see is that Pets are allowed at Four Points Sheraton... but I guess you can't bid on "No Pets Allowed"!

 

Thanks for any bidding advice!

Unfortunately, there is no way to bid for a  particular property. Is the Courtyard a must? If not, what would be your desired budget per night for this stay?

Few issues here...

First, if you're trying to bid on PRICELINE there is no way to target, or avoid, a specific property... you need to be willing to accept any hotel in the zone at the star rating (or higher) that you bid... and there are other 3* hotels in this zone, so there would be more than just the two you mention above.  As well, as there are no amenities associated with the hotel you're bidding on (any amenities shown on the PRICELINE bidding page are amenities that are offered at all hotels of that star rating in the zone), so i'm not sure the point of the research you did above of listing the amenities of the two properties; even if the amenities were different, what can be done with this information?

 

If you're trying to target (or avoid) a specific property, PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE are your better options, since the amenities shown are in relation to a specific property being offered and therefore can be researched.

 

What is your ultimately objective for this trip... bidding on PRICELINE or trying to target a specific property?

Sorry - I wasn't sure if in the bidding process you could request a particular amenity that the other 3* properties didn't have.

 

I noticed that someone mentioned they have the Courtyard in June, when they bid on it, so I thought I might try... the Sheraton is probably the only one I wouldn't want in particular ... but maybe I'll just wing it! I'll report back.

 

Thanks for your help.

No need to be sorry (nobody is mad/upset), i just wasn't sure what it is you were trying to do.

 

If you would like help with a suggested bidding strategy let us know your maximum bid amount and we will suggest a strategy for you to follow.

 

Also, if you're having trouble finding the priceline bidding page (as they continue to move/hide it) we have set up the following page for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com

 

Let us know how you make out or how we can be of further help.
