4* Omni Shoreham did 5 free rebids for a 4 star Dupont Circle didn't intend to go this high but ended up with a successful bid of $131.00 Thursday Oct 27 and Friday October 28 Saved a few bucks and will use the Omni upgrade certificate which should arrive before then by signing up for their club. Thanks for the advice.
Dupont Circle - Woodley Park 4* Omni Shoreham did 5 free rebids for a 4 star Dupont Circle didn't intend to go this high but ended up with a successful bid of $131.00 Thursday Oct 27 and Friday October 28 Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Nights: 2 Subtotal: $262.00 Taxes & Service Fees: $45.41 Total Charges: $307.41 Saved a little money but I plan on using the Omni upgrade certificate when I check in so the stay should be a little more enjoyable as well
I have tried several bids for Dupont Circle. I have bid 4 star and added no 4 star zones from $70 by $5 increments to $100 without success for 2 nights for Thursday and Friday night Oct. 27 and 28. 3 days later I then went 4 star and 3 star and did multiple free bids from $70 to $85. I am booked downtown at the Willard at $153 for that Tuesday and Wednesday (business downtown - government rate). But I like to stay a couple extra days and enjoy the night life and be near Dupont. I have stayed before at the Adams Morgan Metro stop at the Marriott Wardman Park and the Omni Shoreham and those work well, I have stayed in Foggy Bottom once for a week and would never do that again due to the lack of easy Metro access. I second everything that TravelGuy has said on the issue. I have a great Dupont Circle hotel (my personal rating 4*) booked at $153 for Thursday and Friday night so I really don't want to go over $100 or so for an uncertainty. I would be happy to get the Churchhill or Weston. But I do not want to end up at the Courtyard by Marriott at Woodley Park for $100. Is the Thursday night stay the extra cost night? Any suggestions. I have plenty of time to snag something and I have a two very good back up reservations. I want to stay :) downtown Tuesday and Wednesday and at Dupont Thursday and Friday. Suggestions?
