Hi Folks! So, I ended up with the Doubletree for $101. I haven't seen as many good things about that one, so I hope its nice! The Hyatt had such beautiful pictures..... Anyway, here's what I did... First I bid 70, Jersey City 3* rejected... Increase to 80 and added Elizabeth rejected... Started over bid 90, Jersey City 3* rejected... Increased to 101 and added Elizabeth won! I had tried staying in NYC using the tips from here, bid upto 155 on 3* with no luck. Thanks for all your help, thereuare....you're a gem! Kim.... of course, I did all this through Savingsbarn.com!
