Back-up was at Hampton Inn Madison Square, it was actually for 340$ per night. However, today I found a great deal through travelzoo which works out to an average of 250$ per night for the Millennium Broadway. I was super excited to find this rate, for what should be a better hotel, in a better location. I think I will lay off PRICELINE for awhile now, maybe try later in September if rates seem to be decreasing.... otherwise 250$ seems to be a very good rate for my stay right now!! As for splitting our bid, I really do not want to do that.... I think I would rather pay slightly more than have the hassle of switching hotels, especially since we are not there for that long either....don't want to have to waste time with that.
