If you want help with bidding on PRICELINE, you need to ask further in advance. There's not much we can do now because you're within 24 hours of check-in, which means that you'd have to pay a penalty (likely equal to one night's stay) to cancel your reservation at the Embassy Suites. Combined with the inability to choose your room type if you bid through PRICELINE, I don't think using PRICELINE is your best option in this case. If you want to try anyway, I'd suggest bidding lower than the $50-60/night that you stated earlier. Given the risks and the penalties for cancelling your backup, I would not bid any higher than $40-45. I wouldn't recommend the HOTWIRE option that thereuare mentioned above, as the cancellation penalty would eat up about half of the $25/night savings.
