  1. Started at $63...accepted at $79. Used BB PRICELINE link to begin purchase. Thanks again!
  2. Started bidding at 50 in Downtown, rejected. Added Conv Ctr at 60, rejected. Added FQ at 66, accepted! Started with BB PRICELINE link. Thanks to the board once again!
  3. Persistence finally paid off... Won the Grand Hyatt, MTE, $150/night for 3 nights: 7/16-19. Bid up from $125. Used board's PRICELINE link. Thank you.
  4. I booked the Hampton Inn SoHo via travelzoo for $159/night. I like the area, but would rather get a 4 star in the ESB, TS or MTE area for under $150/night if I can.
  5. Have been bidding for 5 days, price was accepted this morning. Bid History: 3.5* Tampa Westshore Airport S Area, $35 Denied - but offered $10 rebid. Declined and rebid (added Airport W) at $43, Accepted. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $43.00 Subtotal: $43.00 Taxes & Fees: $12.71 Total Charges*: $55.71 Used Board's PRICELINE link. Thank you.
  6. Thank you. I am going to keep bidding everyday. I booked a back-up just in case. This is the first time I have had a hard time aquiring a hotel via priceline for a summer NYC trip. I am hoping the inventory opens after the holiday weekend.
  7. Looking to see if there is anything additional I can do. Have been bidding for 10 days now with the following strategy: Starting ESB 4* $125, add $10 and rebid zones until I hit $155. Close broswer and re-open using same strategy as above for the other zones (TS and MTE) My max bid will have to remain $155. Any advice to increase chances of winning would be appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Just wanted to post reply to close this topic. Decided not to take a chance on this property. Thanks for the help.
  9. Hello, Wondering if anyone has insight on the following: 3.5-star hotel in Longboat Key - Lido Key Resort Beachfront Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Laundry Facilities High-speed Internet Access Kitchenette Recommended in 80% of customer reviews Am hoping it is either the Hilton Longboat Key Resort or Longboat Key Club and Resort, but neither are listed. Also hoping it is NOT the Colony Beach Resort... Anyone have any thoughts? Will use PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links. Thanks.

  13. Confirming Dates of stay: Tues 5/5-Thurs 5/7/09. 3.5* Rating, CPS Zone. And, I did use the PRICELINE Link from the board:Thank you all. As far as restaurant recommendations: Anything, really. Low budget, good eats that I can't get in FL! NY Local Faves, Bagels, Street food, etc. I will start a new thread when I win for the other 2 dates, and again will use the links to support.

They offered to let me extend the checkout date, so I did try, but they came back and offered me $156/nigh
  15. Thanks for your advice, I appreciate it. I will continue, but will add MTW. I just don't want Times Square. It is still 2+ months away, but I am a planner... Also, will look for backup using site below! Will report back with any wins.
