When I was bidding Philadelphia hotels on Priceline this week, I noted that the Philadelphia (Gloucester - Runnemede - Deptford) zone's highest level is now just 2.5*, so that zone is now a rebid option when bidding 3*s in Philadelphia, very good news as the city had no free rebid options at 3* previously.

Over the past few months, Priceline has upgraded many Holiday Inn Express hotels from 2* to 2.5*, and now it appears that they're doing the same with the Fairfield Inn chain. Here are two that have been upgraded, and I'm sure that others will find more:

Fairfield Inn Portland Airport (OR)

Fairfield Inn Burlington (WA)
