Priceline Hotel: Please advise - 3.5* or 4* Seattle (Downtown-Pike Place)

By downtownbrown88,

Recommended Posts

My bids for $75 and 80 have been rejected for 2 rooms 8/16. Looking to stay in Downtown-Pike Place only. What are my free re-bid zones with a 3.5*? See people winning the Westin and Renaissance for these prices these dates... Thanks!

So you know if you're on the right track, you currently have NINE re-bid zones when bidding 4* in Seattle.

If you're confused by the Priceline Re-Bidding Explained link just post back and we'll break it down further for you one step at a time.

I have used the PRICELINE links provided and bid a variety of free-bid zones, even down to 2 stars and the range from 65-$115 dollars with NO success on Priceline. What is going on in Seattle that weekend (8/15)? I just need one night!?! On Travelocity / Expedia there is nothing below 200 it seems. I will likely not even use PRICELINE. I successfully bid a 4* Resort in Maui the first try for the price I'm trying to stay at a 2* in Seattle?!

Just to verify -- you want a room for 8/15, not 8/16, right?

If that's correct, how urgently do you need to be in downtown Seattle on that particular night? Is there any flexibility in your plans?

3.5 is much more limited. I know both the Everett locations are rebid zones. Have you considered bidding lower for a 3*? It might be alot more reasonable.

You should also note that the New York Yankees are in town playing the Mariners. That attracts alot of people to the downtown area.

Best of luck!

I'm not sure what you mean by "more limited." If you mean in terms of rebid zones, you have the same rebid zones as for a 4* bid except for University of Washinton - Northgate (on the other hand, you have only one rebid zone for a 3* bid). If you mean in terms of the number of 3.5* hotels in the Downtown - Pike Place zone, it's true that only 3 have come up on Priceline lately, but only five 3* hotels have been reported recently.

Also note that downtownbrown88 has bid all the way down to 2*. But I should have pointed out earlier that this is futile if you're just bidding in the Downtown - Pike Place zone. There is only one hotel in this zone rated lower than 3* by Priceline: the 2.5* Best Western Pioneer Square Hotel.

downtownbrown88, have you figured out what you're going to do? Rates in the downtown area on the 15th seem to increasing. If you let us know what your budget is and where in Seattle you'd be willing to stay, we may be able to suggest some options.
