  5. Used the PRICELINE link. Successful at $160 for the Magnolia Hotel and Spa. Thank you again!
  6. Unsuccessful on priceline bids. Checked out Hotwire again and saw that the Downtown West property was no longer available. Booked the Entertainment District property with the same amenities listed above, and as predicted, was the Westin Grand Vancouver for $156/night using the HOTWIRE link. Thank you!
  7. I bid up to $125 in both zones separately. At this point, I am open to the least expensive 4* in either zone and would be willing to raise the max bid if necessary.
  8. It turns out I'll be spending 2 days in Victoria before heading to Vancouver. Requesting bidding assistance to book a 4* hotel in Victoria with a max bid of $170. I've currently bid from $90 to $140 in $10 increments without any luck. Thanks!
  9. As an update, I'm still working on booking a hotel in these zones, but have changed my dates to 7/29 - 8/1. All other parameters are the same. Please let me know if you think I should revise the previous bidding strategy.
  10. I think I'll switch things around a bit. I'd like to bid downtown up to the limit first, then Granville. Thx!
  11. Requesting bidding assistance for a 4* hotel in the Granville Entertainment District (1st choice) or Downtown Vancouver (2nd choice) from 7/27/11 to 8/1/11 with a max bid of $140.
