I got really lucky as I was supposed to fly out BUT the flight was overbooked and instead, took the $400 Delta voucher. I was pretty sure that I would find a Seattle area hotel accepting on the same day.

This is a great hotel and I was upgraded to their club level with my SPG-gold and had a great 24th floor view of the ocean with breakfast and evening snacks. Weekend parking is free on the street.

FANTASTIC!

I always wondered how Priceline would work out in a situation of a cancelled/bumped flight, but also wondered how i'd find internet access in such a situation. Did you have a laptop with you, and if so, how did you connect to the internet?

Thanks for the info.

I went straight to the closest Kinko's after renting a car (I had AVIS vouchers so the car was free).

I knew Seattle's prceline offerings extremely well so I was fairly confident to get accepted somewhere. Tacoma was my first choice and I got my acceptance within 30 seconds.

I can't imagine being stuck in similar circumstances but past priceline's deadline for same day bids ... perhaps, I would spend the night in the airport instead fo coughing up so much more for a 1*!!!

Also must of been much easier/nicer with the new Priceline interface where you know your acceptance in less than 2 minutes, rather than the old "we'll email you within 15 minutes".

Nice to see it work out, and as always, thanks for taking the time to post.
