  1. Just an update to let everyone know how things went... I had a lot of time to spare, so I started low and gradually worked my way up. Then I ended up forgetting about bidding for a while. I just started bidding again on Wednesday and started at $95. Was rejected, added Southgate/Lincoln Park zone at $100 which was also rejected. So this morning I put in $102 and was rejected, added Southgate/Lincoln Park zone at $105 and got the 4* Westin Book Cadillac. With tax, the total was 127.39. Not bad considering they're going for $220 on their website.
  2. I would be willing to accept any of them, although I do certainly have my preferences based on location. It looks like the other two hotels that have been won so far are both close to the People Mover, so I guess I'd be ok with those as well (although I understand that the list isn't necessarily complete and there could be other options). I'd really like to go as cheap as possible while still sticking to a 3.5* at the minimum. Does PRICELINE have hotels that aren't on their regular list that are options for the bids? For example, I see 5 hotels in the downtown area that are at least 3.5 stars:
  3. Looking to stay downtown on August 24th. My #1 choice for a hotel would be Greektown, as it's close to everything I want (food, fun, Comerica). I have seen the winning bids here ($85, $90, and $95) and would be ok with spending any of those, but the cheaper the better! From what I can tell, there are two 3.5* hotels downtown (the third 3.5* Priceline lists is out of the downtown map area) that are offered on Priceline's website - Greektown, and the Doubletree. I looked online and called, and there is about a $40 difference between the rates. I also tried looking on Hotwire, but they don't appe
  4. I know what the amenities are for Greektown as I've stayed there before, but I wasn't sure if they would list casino as an amenity as it could give away which hotel it was. Would I be right in guessing that the 4* hotel currently listed on HOTWIRE would not be Greektown? These are the amenities for the one I'm currently looking at on HOTWIRE. $119 for one that's normally $179.

  5. Quick question regarding Hotwire. I've never used it or Priceline and am always a bit hesitant as I usually have a specific area I'd like to stay in. I'm planning a trip to Detroit at the end of August for a Tigs game and am hoping to snag a hotel in Greektown. I noticed that you mentioned Casino, and was wondering if that was mentioned as an amenity when you were looking. On Hotwire so far, all I've seen is a downtown area hotel for $114 (normally $179 on other sites) but Casino isn't listed as an amenity. The only thing I find strange is I don't know of any 4* hotels in downtown Detroit wit
