Priceline Hotel: Need some help here..

By pauljjeon,

Hi everyone

I just found this website and decided to use priceline.com for my next trip to Seattle. I'll stay in Seattle from 6/13/2007 to 6/18/2007 and thinking about 4* hotels(Seattle Downtown area). i've already got flight ticktets so..before to start bidding, I have two things to make sure of.

first, I know about rebidding system. What happens if i keep rebidding up to the limit of my budget and there's no hotel meet my criteria? Can I just quit bidding and try another site, such as hotwire.com? or i'll be charged?

and second, since I'm goin to stay in Seattle, how much would be the best bid on 4* hotels? I read some people got 2 nights staying at W for $120. I'm thinking $140 for 4* hotels in Seattle downtown area.

Any helpful answer about those questions will be appreciated.

Have a good day!

If no hotels accept, you are not charged and can try the same bids again in 24 hours to see if new inventory may be available.

If Hotwire has an offer that interests you, I'd strongly recommend going with it, as Hotwire offers can change (either a higher price or different hotel showing) or simply vanish at any time.

It all depends on the rates for your dates. If it is a slow period in Seattle, then you will likely find lower discount rates on Priceline and Hotwire. If a convention or other major event is taking place, you may find discount rates that are even higher than $140. It all depends.

Hotwire has a 4* in the downtown area for $154 and a 3.5* for $129 for your dates. The 4* appears to be a match for the Sheraton, while the 3.5* has not been identified yet.

If you were interested in one of these hotels, you could book through Hotwire (although please use the site's HOTWIRE link)

Otherwise, given these rates, I would think that a 4* in the downtown area will be possible for under your max. Board moderator thereuare will have a better idea than I would, but I would personally start bidding at $100 for a 4* in downtown and then work up from there.
