Priceline Hotel: Need two rooms in Bothell area 9/8-9/10

By tekob,

Recommended Posts

I have tried for the last two days to get a room in Bothell via the Savings barn link for Priceline. From reading the info on Washington I am attempting to win the Country Inn and Suites. The event I am going to is in Snohomish, so this hotel would be nicely located.

Yesterday

Bid 1- Bothell 2 1/2* $50

Bid 2- added Everett $53

Bid 3- added North Everett $56

Today

Bid 1- Bothell, North Everett, 2 1/2* $60

Bid 2- added Everett $65

Bid 3- added Lake Union $70 - rejected

Any suggestions? I seem to be locked out now as when I try other combinations I receive a duplicate request message.

My maximum bid is wide open. The Country Inn website quotes $139 per night for these dates. There is a AAA discount and/or internet user discount of $119 available on their website also.

My maximum bid is wide open.

Obviously you wouldn't want to bid about $119 since you could book this hotel directly for that much, but it indicates that although 'wide open', you do have a maximum bid.... although in reality your maximum bid may be much less than this.

So that we don't suggest a strategy that goes higher than you're willing to currently bid, please let us know your maximum bid and we'll suggest a strategy as to how to proceed.

24 hours after your last rejected bid, i'd try as follows with your two re-bid zones:

Select 2.5* Bothell...

Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone1...

Bid $80, if rejected close browser and re-access priceline however you did previously.

Select 2.5* Bothell and re-bid zone2...

Bid $85, if rejected add re-bid zone1...

Bid $90.

Do note also that there is a 2.5* on HOTWIRE (Extended Stay Deluxe?) for $50... surely a drop in star quality, but perhaps the low price may make it worthile for you? (if you go this route please use our HOTWIRE link to begin any purchases you make)

If you ultimately book direct please use our Country Inn and Suites link for your purchase (also found in our support page.

Good Luck and let us know how it geos or if you have any questions regarding the above.

Upon further investigation I found that I had enough Marriott points to get one room free at the Marriott Springhill Suites Bothell and was able to purchase more points to get the second room for a slightly lower price than it would have been through a standard reservation. Total cost of $238.50 for 2 rooms for 2 nights. Overall it cost less this way than the $75 or more per room per night would have with more bidding on Priceline. So this time I am forgoing the bidding route. Thank you for your help. I will be back for my next bid in the next few weeks and I will use the links.
