Priceline Hotel: 4* NYC (Downtown-Soho-Financial) Millenium Hotel

By MGopher007,

Recommended Posts

Looking for help with a bidding strategy for any and all zones OTHER than Brooklyn, LIC, and SOHO. With the sheer number of hotels in my chosen zones, i would think i stand a fair chance avoiding a few of them. If one of the zones I am neglecting is better as a central locale, thank you for sharing :)

Dates are somewhat flexible, with any 3 night stay between 12/10 - 12/16. Preference is 12/10 - 12/13. Would like to start with 4* and maximum bid of $150. Seeing as this is a few months out, I would like to start bidding at a (realistic) rock bottom rate and move up over the next week or so. I've seen some low $100's in the wins calendar, so I'm somewhat hopeful. Only my wife and I, so double occupancy is fine. Would prefer not to split the stay between 2 hotels.

Thereuare/Aaron, if you need more info from me, please let me know (read: which zone i prefer the most, etc).

Please list the zones you're willing to accept, by PRICELINE name, rather than the ones you won't accept.

I'm guessing the dates of 12/11-12/14 may give you the best shot, but i'll also add that for this time of year your $150 budget for a 4* hotel may be a bit of a stretch. If you're not willing to bid up to $150 at this point in time, what is your current maximum bid?

Looking for CPS, Chelsea, ESB, MSG,MTE, MTW, TS, UES, UWS.

I'm looking at $150 as my max bid for now, but would need a suggestion as to what is reasonable to start at? Is $150 a starting point since you stated that it is a stretch for the time of year? I'd like to try that or under for a week or so to see if I can find something. If not, i'll either drop down to a 3.5*, add in the zones i've left out, or stay across the river.

Note...i have yet to place a bid at all on this stay.

Also, better to avoid the weekend in NY as it is in Vegas or typically the same?

*I looked to see if i could edit the title of the thread, but didn't see it anywhere*

4* New York City Millennium Hotel

12/10-12/13

$130/night

Average nightly rate on their site is $519 for the same dates.

Attempted the bidding strategy above. Was given the message that my bid was way to low to even be close at $125, but was accepted at $130.

I did use the link in your sig too :)

Thank you Thereuare for your help, again. With my 3 wins, this site has saved me upwards of $2000 against what I would have spent booking direct.

Hi! I have a question for the OP...

Does the hotel accept children? There seems to be 2 Millenium hotels in New York, and the one near the UN building doesn't allow reservation with child.

Thanks!

(BTW, I want to go at the exact same date as you...I'll probably use the same strategy.

Thanks!

Where did you see/read/learn this? (as i don't believe this to be the case... this hotel does allow children)
