Priceline Hotel: Vancouver 6/15-6/19

By binarynut,

Recommended Posts

I've been looking at Hotwire for Vancouver hotels during the 6/15-6/19 window. The prices are high, there is one $83 2.5 * hotel in Downtown Vancouver South, otherwise anything downtown is over $120. My preference is for the entertainment district and to stay under or at least near 100 a night. Any suggestions for a Priceline bidding strategy?

Priceline's Vancouver zone is much larger than Hotwire's "Entertainment District"... can you accept a hotel anywhere within Priceline's Vancouver zone?

You're correct, Vancouver's zone goes a bit further than I'd prefer on Priceline. Next year I'll check the schedule and avoid the NHL draft! I would assume by bidding on Priceline I'd find the lowest prices will be the Stanley Park area and the mainland. Do you have any suggestions for an opening bid? If the price is right I can manage with that expanded area. Thanks.

I had really hoped to cap it off at around $110, US. I know that's not much in Vancouver for cruise ship season. I have a reservation direct with a 2 star at $99 canadian (plus tax) on Howe Street. I'd prefer to upgrade to a nicer hotel.
