    One son goes to college in PA and the other just moved to West Palm Beach for an internship. Love using Priceline to get great deals.

  1. Used the betterbidding link to PRICELINE. Pleasantly surprised to get the Residence Inn Willow Grove, website rate is $179-our total $59.69 with tax added including breakfast :) My husband & I have stayed here before and were very happy. The bidding zone has changed and now says Horsham & Fort Washington.
  2. This was a surprise! My son goes to college in the area, so we have gotton some great hotel deals for visiting from MA. I had never seen Hilton Garden Inn before- guess it was just opened Feb. 07. Was hoping for Springhill Suites or Marriott Courtyard in Willow Grove/ Horsham area. Using savingsbarn.com bid $45 for a 2 1/2* for 10/6 only and got the Hilton Garden Inn in Fort Washington. Looked so good when I checked it out that I added another night at the same rate. (On trip advisor it has a 3*rating) It also ended up being closer to his college. Should be a great Parent's Weekend.
  3. Needed one night stay to catch a very early flight from Providence airport. Started bidding 7/18 using SavingsBarn.com Here's what transpired: 7/18 bid $42 for 2 1/2* in airport area-- rejected but reply to add $12 7/20 bid $45 for 2 1/2* in airport area --rejected but reply to add $13 --did not accept, but added West Warwick area and bid $46 which was rejected 7/24 tried same bidding as 7/20 -- no luck 8/3 Considered dropping to a 2* but decided to give the 2 1/2* one last try where it was closer to the date. bid $46 -- rejected; added West Warwick and bid $48 -- Finally accepted at Hampton Inn & Suites. Total with tx and service fees $61.86 This was a third of the price at the hotel website. I'm a true believer in Priceline with Betterbidding's help. Thanks!
  4. The date of the stay is 8/13/07. Sorry for the omission.
  5. Hopeful to get a 3* on Singer Island for 1 night 8/9, but over 3 days bid from $55 to $85 with all rejections. Added Palm Beach Garden area and got the Marriott for $56+tx =$70.27 Same room going for $169 on their website. That's a deal! Lookout51
  6. Used SavingsBarn.com to place a bid on Priceline for a hotel near Palm Beach International. Bid $51 and received a counter offer for $65. Ignored that and placed a bid for $56. Accepted for the 3* Hilton. Lookout51
  7. Bid using SavingsBarn.com from 7/7-7/9 for 1 night Mon. 7/30. Bid $60,$67, & $71 using other areas that didn't have 4* but all rejected. 7/8 Bid $70, $76 & $81 all rejected. On 7/9 at 8pm (other days bid mid-day) I bid $80 which was rejected but given a counter offer of an additional $22. I ignored that & bid $85 which was accepted for Sheraton on the Falls. Thanks to all that keep this forum going --I find the info most helpful. Lookout51
  8. Sorry for the double post. I'm rather lost here. My dates are 10/6 & 10/7 Would take 2* or above. Would like to pay max of $60/night. Because I couldn't find my post I tried bidding tonight as follows: Horsham/Willow Grove 2 1/2* $50 - rejected; Then went same area 2* $45 - rejected; last added Plymouth Meeting/ Norristown $45- rejected. Other postings had recently said they have places for $42 first try. Is Oct. an especially busy month? Appreciate any help.
  9. 1st time on a board & 1st time trying Priceline. Read postings for several nights but not much for my area. Read the hotel list but not sure if still valid. Just 2 parents going for parent's weekend looking to save some $$. Please help.
  10. This is my 1st time on a board & my 1st time asking for bidding info. I've been reading postings for several evenings and think I have a basic idea, but only one bid in the area I've chosen so not much to compare for prices. Just 2 parents traveling for a parent's weekend looking for a great deal. Would appreciate help.
