  1. Bidding for one room for 2/26/11-2/28/11 (this weekend), 3*. First bid, Worcester $55, rejected. Added Auburn (no 3*) and rebid $60, rejected.
  2. I've been trying to bid for 2 rooms for 11/24-11/27 without success so I thought I'd try shortening the time frame to just Thanksgiving day (11/25) - 11/27. I got the 3* Hilton Garden Inn for $50 for each room. $50.00 Number of Rooms: 2 Number of Nights: 2 Subtotal: $200.00 Taxes and Fees: $34.16 Total Charges*: $234.16 This is fine, because I'll just add on the additional night at Priceline's regular rate of $83. (I hope it was ok to post this as a new topic? Maybe I should have added this tomy Failed Bid post? Feel free to edit!)
  3. Rebid $45 this morning. Rejected. I'll keep trying. No other zones to add.
  4. Bid $41.00 each for 2 rooms for Waltham/Newton, 3*, for Thanksgiving (11/24-11/27). Rejected. I'll keep trying and I'll keep you posted. I used your PRICELINE link to bid. Thank you.
  5. I noticed that the list of Hotwire hotels for Worcester MA still shows the Crowne Plaza as a possible 3*, but that hotel is now closed. (It has been crossed off the Priceline list.) Thanks.
  6. Well, now the rate is $82, but the amenities listed are: Complementary Breakfast Fitness Center Pool Business Center Laundry Hi Speed Internet in rooms Kitchenette Sure sounds like the Residence Inn to me.
  7. At this point Hotwire is showing a hidden hotel that is 3* and fits the description of the Residence Inn for a non-refundable $79. I have continued trying to bid to no avail. I'll give it a little more time, but I bet that $79 is the Residence Inn... (BTW my dates are 9/24-9/26.) As always, thanks!
  8. Thank you for the HOTWIRE suggestion. I will use that if I can't win a bid soon. (I am so cheap! lol) Meanwhile, my parents want to come with us, so now I want two rooms. I think this is not an issue of price, but availability. I really only want to stay at the Residence Inn, although I would be ok with Courtyard too. I'm glad the Crowne Plaza closed - that was a 3* and it was a dump. Today (8/17) I bid: 2 rooms Worcester 3* $55 rejected Worcester + Auburn 3* $65 rejected BTW I always use your PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to bid.
  9. On 8/14 I rebid $65 on a 3 star in Worcester and it was rejected. I added in Auburn (no 3 star available) and rebid $70 and was rejected. Oh well. (I have a refundable reservation at the Residence Inn for $139.)
  10. PLEASE NOTE THIS THREAD WAS FROM 2009. I was recently asked to post an update. We ended up staying at the Waltham Doubletree using an AAA rate. Rate Type: AAA RATE Rate per night: 94.05 USD Total for Stay per Room: Rate 282.15 USD Taxes 27.37 USD Total 309.52 USD Total for Stay: 309.52 USD It's a decent hotel and spacious for families traveling together.
  11. Bid $50 hoping to get Residence Inn, which I have gotten several times in the past. Bid rejected. I'll try again for $60 in 24 hours.
  12. I have $94, which is the AAA rate. Not cheap - but I've stayed there several times and it is a nice place. We're traveling with 2 older kids - so we either need two regular hotel rooms or the suite will work fine. I've seen the 3* hotels going in Waltham for $36, but not for more than 2 nights...and not at Thanksgiving - I'm not sure how that effects things.
  13. On 10/11 I bid $35 for 2 rooms 3* in Newton-Waltham MA for Thanksgiving (11/25 - 11/28) and was denied. On 10/17 I re-bid $36 (the general going rate) and was denied. So far I have a cancelable (?) reservation at the Waltham Doubletree for a reasonable rate; I might just stick with that for now as we will only need one room there.
  14. Bid $42 each for two nights, 9/25 and 9/26/09 and bid was accepted at Residence Inn. I chose $42 because that is what it has gone for recently. I was very happy to get the Residence Inn as it is a Wonderful hotel -- full breakfast and lovely HUGE rooms. This is parent weekend at Worcester Polytechnic Institute so what a great deal! I used the PRICELINE link at the top of this page.
  15. Bid $43 on 2 1/2* and got the wonderful Worcester Residence Inn. I'm happy -- I always worry on a Worcester bid that I'll be "upgraded" to the 3* Crown Plaza, which is a decidedly inferior property to the usual 2 1/2* choices (Courtyard or Residence Inn). (It happened to me once.) AAA price on the Residence Inn Web site was $189/night!!! 8/24/08-8/26/08 Offer price: $43 Number of rooms: 1 Number of Nights: 2 Subtotal: $86.00 Taxes and service fees: $18.34 Total charges: $104.34 I used the Better Bidding link to PRICELINE to place my bid. Thank you!!!
