  1. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $50.00 Subtotal: $50.00 Taxes & Fees: $14.94 Total Charges*: $64.94 Started at $45 and got a message back from PRICELINE that if I raised my bid to $55 my bid would be accepted, so I knew I was close. Instead of taking their offer I added North Spokane (free rebid) and raised my bid to $50. Accepted! Used the PRICELINE link here - thanks as always for a great site!
  2. The Empire Hotel - 4* Upper West Side Monday October 4
  3. Hi, I’ve also been bidding for a few weeks for October dates (October 4-9) without success. My target zones are Times Square and Midtown West and so far I’ve bid up to $202 for a 4 star, $160 for a 3.5 star, and $110 for a 3 star. I know it isn’t exactly the same profile as what you are looking for but hopefully this little bit of extra info helps you. I am coming to terms with paying more/accepting less stars myself. I know I have a lot of time but I want to get this part of the trip firmed up in the next month or so. If I happen across any other insights for October I’ll post them he

  5. Started at $33, denied. Added Beaverton as a free rebid and raised to $39 and got it.

  6. Started at $60 and kept on adding free rebids. I wanted Embarcadero East (not West). Ran out of free rebids and tried 3 days later again. Started at $60 and added my free rebids. Hit at $85. This is more than I have paid in a long time for a San Francisco 4*. Wonder if I could have gotten cheaper if I had been willing to do Embarcadero West. Oh well. Looks like a nice hotel.

  8. I am usually a Priceline user but after no luck several times bidding for a 4 star up to $110 I was faced with either waiting it out or lowering to a 3*. However several 3* in MTE do not have favorable reviews and I didn't want to take the chance. I decided to go with Hotwire and with what I was pretty sure was the faborably reviewed Roosevelt hotel (thanks to this board). Their website is advertising $185 for these dates so I definately got a good deal. Hotwire $111.00 x 4 nights = $444 $75.95 in taxes in fees $520.95 Grand total 06/16/04 to 06/20/04 3.5* Roosevelt Amenities: Restaurant/F
  9. Tried a lowball $35 offer last week with same parameters, but was not accepted. Couldn't find any free rebids so I waited the 72 hours before I rebid $45 today and was accepted.

  10. I've stayed here once in March
  11. I've stayed here twice now. Priceline rating is a 2*, not sure how Hotwire rates it. The first time I paid full price and the second time I used Priceline and paid $28. There is nothing fancy about this hotel but it is adequate and clean. Rooms are standard size with smaller bathrooms and sinks outside the bathroom. Both of my rooms had a coffeemaker, iron and ironing board. I am not sure if they identified my rooms as a
  12. I've stayed here 4 times. All on Priceline bids. I believe I have always paid $65. This is a huge hotel located 2 blocks from Union Square. Very impressive lobby, and three different towers of rooms. 3 out of the 4 stays I have been put in tower 3, which I think is the oldest and seems to have smaller rooms. The other time I stayed in tower 2 which had a bigger and newer room. I believe tower 1 is where all the suites and upgraded rooms are so I've never stayed there. Although I liked tower 2 better, tower 3 rooms are totally fine. But if you are one to care about these types of thin
  13. Started at $50 with no luck. Added Civic Center and went up to $55, no luck. Added Fisherman's Warf and went up to $60 accepted! Grand Hyatt San Francisco 345 Stockton Street San Francisco, CA Check in Date: Sunday, April 25, 2004 Check out Date: Tuesday, April 27, 2004 Offer Price: $60 Number of rooms: 1 Number of nights: 2 Subtotal: $120 Taxes and Fees $23.37 Total Charges $143.37
  14. Started at $25 for a 2*. Was not accepted but I got a counter offer that said I could raise my bid without changing anything by $6 and it would be accepted. Because I am cheap and enjoy the thrill of getting the lowest possible price I did not accept and went back and added a 1* (I was pretty sure there weren't any 1* in that zone) and raised my bid to $28. Accepted, and I was "upgraded" to a 2*!
