Priceline Hotel: 2.5* Seattle (Downtown) Springhill Suites

By tilepusher,

I bid as follows:

2.5* DT $54 (counteroffer of +$15)

added Lake Union $56

2.5* DT + Everett $58 (counteroffer of +$17)

added Lake Union $59 -- accepted at Springhill Suites.

The total came to $212.00 after taxes and fees. The rate on Marriott.com was $139/night.

I had been bidding for a room in Downtown Seattle since early April; the rates at several of the hotels that come up frequently on Priceline were not particularly high (by Seattle standards), so I decided to keep my bidding low and wait for the right deal. It took a lot longer than I thought, but I'm relieved that my patience paid off.

I started my bids from the PRICELINE link.

Thank you, Colfax.

The process was complicated by the fact that I was also trying to get room(s) for two other people that I'm travelling down to Seattle with (they were willing to share a room, as long as it had two beds). They were willing to bid up to $90/night for one room, and I probably could have gotten a 3* for about $70 a month ago; but since I thought we could do better, and I couldn't be sure that any room I booked would have two beds, I held off. One of them was getting rather antsy when I still hadn't closed the deal with less than two weeks to go; I did my best to assure him that I knew what I was doing, but I was praying that I hadn't messed up. Thankfully, everything worked out in the end; I was able to book two more rooms at the Springhill Suites for the same rate (I used the PRICELINE link for that bid as well).

$59 for a 2.5* like Springhill is a great deal, especially on a weekend. I was in Seattle last weekend couldn't even win a 1* Downtown up to $60. It's all about picking the right weekend. Have a good trip, tilepusher!
