Priceline Hotel: Bidding Strategy Help Request

By pekkleiv,

Recommended Posts

Please help with a bidding strategy for Newport RI. We would like to stay in Newport/Newport Beach from 5/22 to 5/24. We prefer a 3* hotel. I don't know if we would be able to get a good deal being that it is Memorial Day weekend. But any deal is better than paying full price. We will have a total of 8 people (2 kids-11 & 12 yo) plus 2 infants. Would we be able to get by with booking 2 rooms or do we need 3? I will be calling the hotel directly after winning to request for cribs.

Thanks in advance for the help.

When I search on HOTWIRE for 2 rooms and 8 occupants, they list only 2* hotel for $142 in the Newport-Middletown-Jamestown areas... I would be willing to pay about $60-$80.
It would appear your budget is not in the ballpark.

What is the best rate you're able to find thru conventional rates? If you're unable to find a hotel for $60-$80 will you cancel this trip and/or find a different destination or what would your gameplan be?
