    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 to stay in Carson, CA for grand aunt's 80th Birthday. Relatives are staying at the Doubletree  in Carson, which Priceline lists as a 3 star (zone 20 - Carson, Compton, Gardena).

The zone list has grown quite a bit since I've last bid in the Los Angeles area.

 

Any suggestions on bidding strategy?

So that we can suggest a strategy tailored to what you are looking for, what would be your desired budget per night for this stay?  Are you looking only for the Doubletree or something nearby acceptable as well?

Yes, I am looking to get into the DoubleTree Carson, if possible.  Current rates are between $155 to $185.  Hoping for 40-50% of that.

Thank you very much

I'm currently seeing rates at the Doubletree at $185/nite for your dates and a PRICELINE EXPRESS offer that i believe to be the Doubletree at $145/nite (less the BB 5% off Priceline Coupon):

3* Carson - Compton - Gardena (confirm your dates on the landing page) for $146/nite with:
Pets Allowed
Free Parking
Business Center
Restaurant
Free Internet
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Free Internet in room
Fitness Center
==> best guess for this property would be the Doubletree Carson

 

If you still do a lot of bidding on priceline and at times have trouble locating the bidding page (as they are constantly moving/hiding it) be aware that we have set up the following page which you can bookmark for easy access: BiddingForHotelRooms.com.  However, if you're trying to specifically target the Doubletree for this trip bidding is probably not recommended as there is no way to target (or avoid) a specific property when bidding on PRICELINE... a PRICELINE EXPRESS offer where you have a reasonable guess that it's the hotel you're hoping for would be a better option.

Let us know whatever you decide to do for this trip.

 

PS- it would also be appreciated if you closed your previous threads: SeaTac Priceline Bidding and New York City Priceline hotel threads with whatever you ended up doing for each of those trips.  Please remember to follow-up your threads with your wins/decisions as you make them (even if you don't ultimately use PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book direct, etc) as this help keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone... as well as being a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your travel plans.
