Needed a hotel room near North Station, so I bid on 4-star hotels in the Beacon Hill zone. Priceline accepted my 10th bid (started at $80 and increased my bid by $10 each time I added a free rebid zone). Only did additive bidding (A, A+B, A+B+C, A+B+C+D, etc.); for my first foray into Priceline, I decided to just keep things simple. Bids were placed on August 24, 2014. Taxes and fees came out to $33.30. Not a huge savings, but considering that the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Boston Garden was asking $171 or $181 a night when I was looking into booking a hotel room more than a week ago, I wanted to see if I could get a higher-quality hotel for the same price before I shelled out that much for a Holiday Inn Express. Even with the taxes and fees, the final price comes out to less than the rate the Onyx Hotel was charging on its site--$239 a night when I last looked.
