  1. I got Hotel Spero, a 4* hotel for $101 (I upped my max a bit). Thanks so much for you help!
  2. Sorry, I may not have been clear, I wasn't aiming to lower star ratings and raise my bid price at the same time, I was just going to lower star ratings first and if that doesn't work, go up by a few dollars each time. So my bidding sequence would be as follows: 1st bid: $75 for 4.5* in 2nd bid:$75 for 4* 3rd bid: $75 for 3.5* 4th: $75 for 3* 5th: $75 for 2.5* (I don't want to go lower than a 2.5*, so for my sixth bid I would go up a few dollars) 6th: $78 for 4.5* ..and so on until I get to ~$95 which is about my max. Zones I am open to stay in: Zone 1 (Civic center south), 2 (financial district), 3 (fisherman's wharf), 4 (Japan town), 5 (Marina), 13 (south of market), 14 (union square east) and 15 (union square west). It looks like the only way I could use the re-bidding strategy to bypass the 24 hour waiting period would be by using zone 8 (Richmond) because it only has a 1* and 2* hotel. So bids 1-5 I can make in the same day since I am changing the star ratings, but for my sixth bid I would need to check zone 8 (Richmond) in addition to the zones I am wanting to stay at so that I don't have to wait 24 hours, correct? and I can only do this once since there is only this one zone that has less than my minimum star rating? So once I go through $78 down to 2.5* (assuming all my bids are rejected), then I will have to wait 24 hours to bid $81 for a 4.5* hotel, correct? My goal is to get the best hotel I can at my budget. I hope I explained it a little better, do you foresee any problems with my strategy above? Thank you for your help and I will be sure to use the links!
  3. Hi, I am a first timer at bidding and was hoping for some insight as to whether anyone could foresee any problem with this bidding strategy. I have read the FAQs and "before you post" threads so have a general feel for how it works but this is my question: I was going to San Francisco June 29th- July 3rd and would like to ideally spend about $75-$95/night on a hotel. There are 9 different zones I am willing to stay in (15 total zones in SF). Does it sound like a reasonable bidding strategy to just include all of these 9 zones starting at $75 at a higher star level (say 4.5* although pretty certain I won't get anything at this price point) and then each time go to a lower star level that I re-bid? I probably wouldn't want to go below 2.5*s, so if I get to that level and my bid is still not accepted then I could go up by a few bucks and start going down the star levels again, starting at 4.5* down to 2.5*, repeating the process until I get up to $95 (my cap). I have read the re-bidding thread and will try to incorporate that if I am able so that I don't have to wait the 24 hours to re-bid. Does this sound OK? I am not so fussy with getting a certain hotel or certain zone, mainly just wanting to get a better quality hotel than I would elsewhere for my price range. Thank you!
