Priceline Hotel: Help finding hotel for a student trip

By sean,

Recommended Posts

I'm organizing a trip for a group of students to DC April 5-9th. I would like to get three rooms to accommodate eight students and two professors. That means the rooms with the students need to accommodate four people--or a room with at least two full beds. Our budget can accommodate $130 per room per night (or so).

After looking through the forums, I thought it might be nice to bid for Omni Shoreham (or Westin Embassy Row). But I've read that the Westin only has offers two twin size beds verse the two full/queen size beds available at the Omni. I wish one could set how many people could be accommodated in a specific bid. I'm open to suggestions, thanks for any help.

Priceline will not guarantee bed type, so you could get rooms with only one bed.

Hotwire will allow you to search for up to quad occupancy, guaranteeing enough sleeping accomodations for each person you include in the search. Hotwire is typically a bit more expensive than Hotwire, but it seems like Priceline may be too much of a risk for your situation.

If I may step in with a suggestion. Since it is a College Trip, you might want to check with the Kellogg Convention Center and Hotel at Galluadet University. The Hotel has fairly reasonable prices and may even have cheaper rates for a student Trip. Althoug I have heard that the University is in a less than desirable part of town, it does have decent security and a shuttle to Union Station.

I was considering their hotel but it really wasn't the right choice for my trip.
