This is how i would proceed:

Select 4* FQ and...

Bid $45 if rejected close browser and go back to Priceline by whatever method you used prior.

Select 4* CBD and...

Bid $45, if rejected add re-bid zone and...

Bid $50, if rejected add re-bid zone and...

Bid $55, if rejected add re-bid zone and...

Bid $60

I could present another strategy that is a bit more complex and would enable you to start at $45 and go up to $80, but given so much time before your stay i don't think it's necessary and i don't think i'd bid as high as $80 right now (although rates seem a bit high... is there an event/football game in town that you know of which would cause higher than usual demand?)
