    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

I noticed a few people asking why they were having bids rejected that usually would win.

First, the Steelers are back in action, so you might want to look at the 2009 Schedule before bidding on downtown hotels, that will come into play. I've still had good luck during Steeler games getting deals at 2.5 to 3.5* out at the airport, but downtown and Greentree are going to be tougher.

Seocond,

Pittsburgh is hosting the G-20 Summit September 24-25, 2009... There are delegations from dozens of countries coming to Pittsburgh that have reserved HUGE blocks of rooms in ALL of the major Pgh motels. Then of course with the throngs of news media, politicians, etc., those dates, and probably some dates straddling those dates, are going to make finding a hotel within close proximity to Pgh more of a chore.

Your best bet will be to avoid Pgh those dates if you're looking for a budget trip, or any trip really, unless you want to be part of the madness that will be the G-20 summit...
