I have to take a licensing exam in Seattle, so I don't want to spend any more money on a hotel than I have to. The testing location is within a couple of miles of any spot on the priceline area, so I'll probably end up walking. I was shooting for Courtyard Marriott, or probably Holiday Inn Express. I think they have another International something or another, but it's rated highly so whatevs. Been trying to lock down a hotel for one night, when I found out about this priceline bid thing I've been going crazy haha. One particularly interesting thing I noted, was that even though I had thoroughly researched the base rates of all the hotels in the area, on my second attempt priceline was attempting to convince me that these hotels normally go for 197 a night. Every other time, though it quotes me around 120. Tried 45 and been slowly increasing it every day. Last attempt was 53. It's been a lot of fun ever since I found out they don't penalize you for low bids. I figure there's no loser three star hotels, and there's no way these hotels are fully booked on a random weekday. I'll update the thread when it goes through with the final amount.
