Hello all! This is a wonderful site and I'm putting myself in your capable hands!

I'm going to Seattle 11/23-11/26 and want to stay at a 4* hotel in the downtown area using PL. I saw 4* prices on the "regular" PL site at $158-198 ish and wonder if I should bid half of that amount in the PL bidding area or go higher.

Also, I need to use UAL miles for the trip and need to book this now. Is it prudent to go ahead and buy my hotel room now or should I wait? This is around Thanksgiving so it might book up fast (my guess).

Thank you!

Welcome to BetterBidding!

I need to use UAL miles for the trip and need to book this now. Is it prudent to go ahead and buy my hotel room now or should I wait?
I would think the airfare will be harder than the hotel to book, and a preliminary look at the dates above doesn't show rates too high, so i would book the airfare first to confirm your dates and then go ahead and bid for the hotel. For a further discussion you can see the related link in our PRICELINE FAQ.

If you let us know your maximum bid we'll suggest a strategy for you to follow... plenty of re-bid zones in this area.

I was going to start at $75 for a 4* downtown Seattle.

Thank you!

Have you confirmed your airline tickets already? (that the above dates are available thru FF miles) Are you ready to bid now?

Congratulations on your win and thanks for sharing it with the board.

The dates above differ than the dates of your previous Priceline Seattle thread... are these separate stays or did you change the dates of your original stay?

Glad to hear the board was helpful... enjoy your stay.
