Priceline Hotel: JAZZFEST 2008

Hi all,

I am going to Jazzfest this year and I'm trying to track unsuccessful/successful bids as we progress into the spring. I know that each bid is unique but I still think it's helpful to track unsuccessful bids too, to avoid some redundancy.

Post your JF results here!

My bid today:

Dates of Stay: 05/01/2008 - 05/04/2008

Unsuccessful - 4* in DT-CC and FQ

I bid in $5 increments from $60 through $90, adding rebids in $5 increments. All rejected.

Used PRICELINE links at savingsbarn.com of course.

I think it would best to stick with the board's current format.

There isn't so much activity in the New Orleans forum to make it difficult to pick-out failed bids (when dates are included in the sub-topic) and with the Hotel Calendar it will be easy to find winning bids.

I've bid up to $138 4* FQ and downtown with no acceptance for 4/30-5/4/08

I tried 3 * FQ and downtown up to $85 no luck.

Is it probably better to wait or buy now? Does availability drop over time and prices just go up and up or do they fluctuate?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I tried FQ and downtown 4* up to $175 today for reservations 4/30-5/4. No luck.

Bid on FQ 3* to $100 for 4/30-5/4. No luck

I've heard of others getting the Hilton Riverside for 4/30-5/3 in the low $60's. Looks like Sat night is the stickler. If you're willing to split your bid, things could work out well for you.

Thanks. Yes you are right. Hilton Riverside 4/30-5/3 for $70/night first bid. I can figure out what to do 5/4 or just stay out all night. Thanks again.

Moderator- Yes, I did use the PRICELINE link above.

Also, anybody have any luck with 5/3-5/4 for either a 3 or 4 star hotel FQ/downtown? I tried bidding up to $95 for 4* and $87 for 3* no luck.
